At Christmas or any other time, photo mugs can be great gifts. There's nothing like a coffee cup with a nice picture on it to commemorate a member of the family, a great vacation or a beloved family home.or anything else that can fit in front of a camera. Some simple steps will help anyone who wants to make photo mugs for gifts, or any other occasions.
1, Select mugs. For the best photo mugs, think about how the color of the mug will handle the superimposed picture. You'll also want to look at the best and simplest ceramic mugs that will support image transfer to make the rest of the process easier.
2, Find your picture. In order to transfer an image onto photo mugs, you'll need a right-sized photo that you can print out. Sift through available pictures and find the ones that will help you fashion the best mugs.
3, Print photos on transfer paper. A specialized paper product allows for image transfer onto hard surfaces. Those who are experienced with these materials call them "transfer paper" or "decal paper."
4, Fix the image to the mug surface. Often, this includes applying moisture to the decal paper. The paper that you buy should have specific instructions on how to transfer the image from the paper to the surface of the photo mugs.
5, Seal the image. One of the last steps for getting these gifts ready to go is to seal the image onto the mug, so that it will not wash off during cleaning. Two popular methods involve either heating the mug to seal the image, or using a clear resin to coat the mug and seal in the picture. Either way, you should have a mug that will stand the test of time.
Price mug-making services. Some third parties can provide great photo mugs at a low cost. This can help customers avoid the trouble of getting all of the special materials and going through the process of creating their own photo mugs.
If heating photo mugs, always follow all instructions for fire safety. Some materials may be flammable, and without following the particular guidelines of vendors, some fire risks could result. Be careful not to mistakenly leave excessive paper or flammables in the oven or other heater during the heating process, and always monitor the process to make sure it is safe.
