    We ordered fantastic personalized travel mugs from Discountmugs.com. They looked fabulous. Everyone loved them. Everyone was happy.

    Of course, we bought them so people could enjoy their beverages on the beach. So here's my WARNING!!!!

    The personalized part of the mug will rub off when they're in the sun. I don't know if it's the combo of sunscreen & direct sunlight or what, but those EXPENSIVE personalization rubbed right off!

    If I did it all again, I would NOT have paid the extra couple $$s to get each personalized. I'd definitely bring travel mugs - everybody loved them - but just plain ones that would've saved us lots of $$$$.

    So there's my warning. Just buy the plain travel mugs!

        aww! that's a bummer Heidi! I'd be pretty irritated about that. But I guess it's good we know that now for future brides!

        Heidi - which mug did you end up buying? I'm wondering if the paint sticks better to some than to others.

          I was considering getting mugs from there.

          Has anyone else had a similar problem? If not, which mugs did you order?

            Thanks for the heads up! I agree with Abbie, contact the company. Maybe they can give you a partial refund.

              Thanks for the info. I think we may just attach personalized tags to the mugs with rafia or ribbon when we give them out.

                or you can just personalize them with a paint pen. I even tested it in the dishwasher & it doesn't come off.

                  Do you think it would be better to get the mugs with the handle?
