    All our mugs are in from discount mugs and there was no problem...they look even better than we thought they would and the logo is printed on really well. It is a bit raised and feels almost baked on...not like something that is going to rub off the first time people handle it with wet hands.

    Sorry I missed the earlier question about shipping...was competely reasonable...but watch - the catch was the brokerage fee. It still was not bad and our mugs came in with a way cheaper price than everywhere else...just so you budget. Mine ended up being $63 for 60 mugs....so my total cost per mug was $5.51 or so....within a few cents, I will have to check an old post or my invoice which is at home right now. The mugs are super quality and the ones here at Elite and similar stores are all overr $15 with out set up fees.

      Raykel...can I ask which mugs you went with on Discountmugs? Did you just use one colour for your logo?

        We ordered ST-33 in royal blue and had our logo done in white (just the one colour). I can't upload a photo from work, but I will try do it when I get home in the morning for you.

            Wow that's a really nice mug!! It looks even better than the image that I did up for ours! Now I wonder if I should have their art department make my image instead :) I'm surprised that your mug could have such a large size imprint as well! Mine is only 2x2" so nothing on it is too big. The hard part was that we wanted our names on it but not too big so that no one would use them after the trip - is that what you had in mind with yours too?

                That mug turned out very cute! I was kinda interested in getting some of those colour changing stadium cups...I saw a thread on them not long ago. I thought since most of the drinks are going to be cold drinks those would work great and they were cheap too! I love getting everyones ideas!

                    My mugs arrives from 4imprint.ca and they are great! The logo size is quite big too, which we are super happy with. I would recommend 4imprint for sure!

                      We did not want our names to be huge afterwards because we wanted people to use them after the trip - same reason we went with a higher quality mug.....trying to be a bit environmental....hopefully not everyone tosses them -lol!

                      I made up a draft of our logo but could not get that bottom line to wrap right side up :s So a good friend I grew up with is a graphic arts designer and I sent it to him....he logged onto the site and looked at what they needed and changed all my fonts to what he said would be cleaner and easier to read once printed. He told me to stay away from the fun fonts like "Ma Sexy" because they tend to blur when done on small areas. He also sent me an email set up specifically the way they asked for it, so I just forwarded that to them. The logo looks way bigger on the mug than we thought it would too - which may be because my friend changed all the fonts and it is all clean lines. I don't know - just love them

                      When you go to make your....pull the ruler function up on your document. Then you can see if it is all fitting in there properly. You can phone discountmugs (that is what i did), order over the phone, and then they give you the email address to send everything to plus your reference number. That way things don't get lost and the art department gets it right away. You could do that and send what you have with a request for them to change something you aren't getting just the way you like it? I am sure they would help you out and then would have a good idea of what you are loooking for. I feel better when I get to talk to a person, so that is why I went this route.
