Back to School Photo Mugs

If you’re looking for a great back to school gift for your child’s teacher or another teacher in your life (or to give yourself!), one of our “Back to School” photo mug designs is a great option. Shutterfly’s photo mugs will brighten up the morning coffee routine or afternoon tea break for yourself or any teacher you know – whether your friend, family member, colleague or child’s teacher. These mugs also make great back to school gifts for kids. Your kids will feel extra special having a custom mug that was designed with special photos and their name and will love drinking hot chocolate out of their very own stylish mug.

Design a Unique Photo Mug

Browse our creative photo mug design options and choose your favorite one, or upload your own pre-made design for a completely original work of art. Once you’ve selected your design, create your own unique mug using our easy-to-use design tool. With the click of a button, you can add your own personal touches to make a meaningful gift. You can choose from two mug styles: Our ceramic mugs are available in an 11-ounce size and a 15-ounce size. Our latte mugs hold 25-ounces and, in addition to beverages, are also the perfect size for cereal, soup, ice cream and more. Using our Custom Color Palette, choose your colors and then personalize your design even further by uploading a special photo and/or adding a favorite quote, name or special message. Whether you choose to create a non-photo design with a personalized quote or inspirational saying, a mug with one photo as the main feature or combination of a photo with a special message or quote, your creation is sure to be a one-of-a-kind gift that will be appreciated and get plenty of use. Your recipient will love sipping their favorite hot beverage in style.
