Did you know we offer a Bespoke service?

We can produce Bespoke Mugs, so working alongside our in-house designer you can have any design, such as a logo or artwork, that you request on a mug.

There are two methods of production that we use, each has its own attributes so it depends on the complexity of your design as to which method we will use. We can offer either traditional silk screen printing (best for single block colours) or digital printing methods (for full colour designs). We can also print your own backstamp for the base of the mug.

All our mugs are quality fine bone china and we often use our Standard or Large mugs for Bespoke designs, but speak to us for more information on other shapes and sizes we have. Some colours are hard to match exactly due to the ceramic inks we use and the firing process, we do our best to keep any variation to a minimum, please enquire for further information. We can provide paper mock ups free of charge, and fired samples can be sent to you on request.

We offer a low minimum quantity of only 36 mugs per design! Although the more mugs you buy the lower price per mug. We offer a competitive price for Bespoke mugs and an accurate quote will be confirmed on sight of artwork.

Please note that Bespoke Mugs can take a few weeks to sample and perfect, depending on the complexity and your requirements. We will confirm our lead time at the quotation stage, but do let us know in the first instance if you need your order urgently.

If you would like a quotation for Bespoke Mugs please send us a high resolution copy of your artwork/logo and full details of your requirements to: [email protected]

We also offer Bespoke Coasters, Bespoke Magnets and Tea Towels – so if you would like coasters, magnets or tea towels with your place name to compliment your mugs – for example: I’d Rather Be In Sheringham. The minimum quantity is around 100 of each, and an accurate quote is available on request.
