"I used to love ordering coffee mugs from Shutterfly. Theirs were the best because they centered the photos correctly leaving a small border above each photo and an equal sized border below each photos. Recently I've been ordering a number of coffee mugs from companies other than Shutterfly because this year Shutterfy made it impossible for me to order what some of the other companies call a "simple wrap around mug" I like to create my own design using Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I used to order a lot of mugs from Shutterfly but now the only plain mugs they sell are for three photos. I can no longer get my single photo wrapped around a mug. The only mugs I can order now from Shutterfly are copies of old designs from 2013 because they won't let me upload a single new photo and put it on a plain mug. The 15 oz mugs from other companies had the photos printed too high with too large of a white border below the photos. The 11oz mugs had the photos cropped unevenly"

We LOVE these photo coffee mugs!
"Again, Shutterfly, I'm so impressed by the amazing products you offer and help me create. This photo coffee mug I just received is gorgeous! Crystal-clear photo quality and color. I've became a shutterfly-addict this past year, and never have been disappointed. My photos have been transformed into amazing pieces of art, books, magnets, posters, cups, pillows, the ideas are endless with all the options. And they make fabulous gifts to give, always great quality and yet so personal & meaningful. I ordered this cup in standard white, using the collage layout. It looks so nice and has quickly became the favorite coffee cup to grab at home or work. I'm intrigued to try the colored mugs as well, to really give them that extra pop for some holiday gifts. Love it!"

"I was thrilled to enjoy my cup of coffee in my mug this morning! The photos turned out great and the quality is wonderful. It was shipped nicely and arrived in one piece! I will most definitely consider this for gift ideas in the future! Just wish I would have gone with the black mug instead of white. However, its perfect and I love it! The best part was when my little one recognized herself on the mug! Too cute!"

Ways to Decorate Gift Mugs
Brown mugs are a neutral backdrop that go with many photos and ceramic coffee mug gifts. When you are putting together a coffee mug gift set, here are a few simple ways to dress it up. These make great gifts for birthdays, graduations and holidays.
Sometimes you try to fit so much stuff into a coffee mug gift set that it is overflowing. You could reduce the number and size of treats in the mug, or find a way to keep it from spilling everywhere. Take some clear or colored wrap, place it under the mug and tie with a ribbon over the top. This not only lets you put more items in the mug, but also looks very nice.
Confetti and Strips of Paper
Before you put candy, coffee or tea bags in brown mugs, put a layer of confetti or colorful paper. Pull a small corner of the paper out to hang over the edge of the cup to dress it up. This extra decoration means you can get away without wrapping this awkward shape.
Tie a Ribbon Around It
Give a coffee mug as a gift with a cute ribbon tied around it. You can use a color that matches, coordinates or contrasts with the color of the coffee mug. Any kind of bow looks great on a coffee mug so use a thin or thick ribbon with a simple or large chunky bow.
Customizing a coffee mug to give as a gift is fun and easy with our online tools. Choose from a variety of templates and colors to create a gift that is perfect for the friend of family member you are giving it to. Before you give the gift, take some time to decorate it with confetti, a ribbon or clear wrap. Get some sticky labels to add the name for the recipient.
