I’m not sure this is the right place to ask this question, so please excuse if not!
I’m thinking of making cards and mugs using some of my artwork, and would love to hear if anyone has done this, can recommend a company to use (or to avoid!), and any tips or advice.
Thanks!September 9, 2018 at 11:52 am
i don’t know if you are in the US, but I use VistaPrint for cards, postcards, business cards and posters. They do print mugs and other things. I have not had any issues, their prices are great and they have sales constantly. They are online. Hope this helps

Thanks, Karen! I am in the US and I will check this company out 🙂September 9, 2018 at 3:40 pm
I am in the USA and use MOO for my cards.
IF I were going to make anything in the USA, and buy en masse for sales, I think I would pay the little bit extra and work locally (unless you have no local print person) because when you are gettign started the sheer numbers of questions and changes might be daunting.
One thing that you can also do is go to RedBubble or some such place and test your item on an actual mug. the price to you is less than the price to others.September 9, 2018 at 4:09 pm
I always support local businesses when possible, but it’s not an option this time. Thanks for the suggestions – I’ll check out both MOO and RedBubble!March 3, 2020 at 1:19 am

- People love cards. I sell more cards than anything else. I print mine at home on a heavy cardstock, however it requires a good quality printer, and extra time to cut, fold and package. But cards are definitely worth the time and expense.
