DIY Photo Mugs

Isn’t great to have a personalized mug to have some coffee on a lazy Sunday afternoon? Well, a personalized photo mug is also ideal for gifts in the holidays. It’s quite cheap to have it from stores but you can make one too! If you have an inkjet printer in your house, you can make a personalized photo mug that you can use as gifts for wedding occasions, birthday celebrations, and holidays. With the simple use of inkjet printer, waterslide inkjet deal paper, transfer solution, scissors, hair dryer, and bowl with water, you can have the best photo mug you can ever have or give to your special someone.

The procedure is simple and very easy to follow:

1. With the use of any photo editor software, design an image for the mug.
2. After you achieved your desired design, print the image on the glossy side of the decal paper using the inkjet paper.
3. Apply the printed sheet evenly with a transferring solution and let it dry completely. You can also use the hairdryer if you want faster results.
4. Cut out the image from the decal paper with the use of scissors.
5. Put the image into a bowl of water for a minute and remove the thin decal film as it slips along the paper.
6. After that, you can place your design in the desired position on the mug. You can use a clean damp cloth to wipe off the excess water and remove bubbles that may appear on the design.
7. Let it dry completely – do not use the hairspray on this one. It may take hours to completely dry so you can speed it up by placing it in a hot place.
8. When the image is dry, you can use an acrylic varnish if you want the decorated item free from scratches, moisture, or fading away.

does it fade in the long run? i have been designing some mugs for some wedding evenets and i find some of my customer says that the design fades as they use it. is there a better way to print mugs other than using decal paper?
