       You would use a diecutting machine - there are several at different price points.  I bought this one:

       

      http://www.amazon.co...04624543&sr=8-1

       

      Then you buy craft vinyl.  I got mine here:

       

      http://www.craftvinyl.com

       

      Unless you want to use the font that comes with the machine, you either have to buy additional font cartridges or buy the Sure Cuts A Lot software (which will let you use almost any font):

      The software has an excellent webpage with lots of how-to videos.

       

      Here's a video that shows how to use the machine to make vinyl lettering:

      It seems like a lot, but once you figure it out, it's really quite easy.

          I have been seeing them for about $4 or so at places like Marshals, Ross, and TJ Maxx.

            Would the vinyl come off once someone washes the cup?

              No - you can even run it through the dishwasher!  If you want to remove it, you can, but it will leave a sticky residue you can wash off with a scrubbie sponge.
