Printing on Mugs

Profit from printing on cups and mugs

Do you have a favourite mug? Coffee mugs and teacups might be small, but they're things we use throughout the day, meaning they have big potential for businesses. Decorated with promotional slogans, gorgeous pattern designs or personal messages, mugs can have substantial value – and it's easy to get started with Roland Texart dye-sublimation printers.

Choose dye-sublimation for durable printed mugs

Mugs need to be able to withstand dishwashers and microwaves, so printed graphics must be durable. Roland Texart printers use special dye-sublimation inks that penetrate the surface of ceramics, heat-transferred via a heat press machine. This creates graphics that last, perfect for gifts with personal designs.

Buy mug blanks to unleash your creativity

It's easy to find poly-coated blank coffee mugs, teacups and travel cups at affordable wholesale prices. Start with a blank and see where your creativity takes you, or print unique designs ordered by your customers. The potential profits on personalised products are considerable.
