This classic merch product is recognized worldwide–it’s a must when it comes to your product offering. Mugs are trending right now, especially as buyers globally are finding ways to enhance their day-to-day routine working from home. Last season, we saw a 240% increase in mugs being sold compared with last year. Throughout recent months, sales are still growing exponentially. 


Product details

If you’re not featuring mugs in your campaigns, you could be missing out on extra sales. Here’s a rundown of the product specs: 

  • 11 oz ceramic mug
  • Dishwasher friendly, microwave safe
  • The front and back print area dimensions measure 2.943” x 2.553” 
  • White base color 
  • Poly-coated for sublimation print, ensuring vibrant print quality 
  • The mug base cost is $8, we recommend you sell them for $14.99


The perfect complimentary item

Not only do conversion rates on campaigns that include mugs as additional items stay consistently high, we’ve seen the amount of items added to baskets at checkout increase as well when they’re involved. Consider applying your current merch designs to a mug and add it to your current listings. 

Mugs are an affordable option to add to listings in addition to other types of merch. Be sure to enable cross-selling in your storefront settings, so mugs can be suggested when previous buyers are viewing your listings. Also consider creating a promo code to entice your first group of buyers to purchase your newly dropped merch with a reduced price mug included.

    Are all mug handles white? If so, is there a way to have the entire mug colored the same?

      Hello there! Yes, mugs have a white base color. You can use your designs the whole way around the mug 🙂

        Think what we meant was for instance to have a small picture or few words to be placed on the various coloured marks. During preview the handles are white while the rest of the cup are in colours selected eg black, purple. So is it gonna turn up this way as in preview? Other platform would have the entire coour covered.

          Hey! The mugs are white, which means the handle will always be white. You can customize the rest of the mug all the way round with your design.

    About to launch a new store. Busy designing but need advice. Where can I find ALL templates for products for Photoshop? And do you have the heat mugs for our designs? The ones that change from black to reveal the image as I have a great design for this product.
    Also, is it possible to print a Full Wrap around the mug, or is it just front n back only as I have some designs for full mug wraps ready to go.

    Thnks for your help 🙂
