"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"
"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!"
"Was absolutely thrilled over my travel mug. All my pictures practically pop & it's very durable & I have all ready been asked where did I make such a wonderful mug. I had a 20$ credit & have always wanted a mug w/me & my children on it but it would've been worth the full price too."
"Received the mug within a week that it was ordered. Upon opening I viewed the mug and was floored by the clarity of the pictures on the mug. It really made a dear friend happy with a great gift that will last a long time. Thank You Shutterfly!"
"I ordered this mug for a darling friend who is a new mother as a Christmas present and I absolutely love it. It is so neat and looks awesome. I can't wait to give it to her!! The picture's printed perfectly and look great!"
Travel mugs make a great gift for teachers, grandparents, friends, significant others and anyone who enjoys drinking hot beverages on the go. At Shutterfly, you can personalize these mugs and other personalized gifts with pictures, cute sayings and so much more. To make the mug an even more unique gift, you could consider turning it into a gift basket of sorts.
Gift baskets do not have to be large and imposing. Instead, you can use the travel mug as a place to store other savory treats. Do you know the recipient’s favorite hot beverage? Whether it is green tea, peppermint tea, dark roasted coffee or gourmet hot chocolate, you can stuff the 11oz mug full of the appropriate leaves, beans or mix. If you do not know his or her preferred beverage, you could give the gift of choice by including a gift card to a local coffee shop instead.
Maybe you would rather turn your photo masterpiece into a vase for a candy bouquet? That is an option too. You can choose to use candy already on a stick, such as suckers, or put candy bars on a stick. Then use a small bit of foam to give your edible arrangement some stability. You can even make this a little more homemade by using treats you made yourself.
Perhaps food and drink is not the way to go for your recipient. Instead, you could give them more necessary essentials for cold weather. Put gloves and a hat in the mug and use a scarf as a bow. This is a great way to give a photo gift along with some cold-weather staples.
If you want to give an item that is too big to fit into the mug, you can create an actual gift basket that includes the mug instead. A gift of travel mugs, a new coffee maker and some high quality coffee could be the perfect present for a pair of new parents, a college grad or a coffee aficionado.
