    Morgan, I love the cups. I have been trying to find something to write on mine with and so far nothing has worked. I will definitely give this a try. Thanks!!

      That is awesome! You have pretty handwriting for the personalized ones. Thanks for including directions on the DIY rub ons. I was thinking of buying printed cups but, may give this a shot. How many times can you use one rub on?

        thanks. my handwritting normally is terrible, but I manage to make the cups look nice. I did them without the scrolls for the last event I made them for & I liked that better.

        I've been using all of my leftover cups when I throw baby showers. each guest gets one with their name. I ran out of rub ons so I just used stickers last time. it was so much easier, but it wont hold up as well. still, it's just for the shower.

        rub ons are a one time use thing like a sitcker. they come in sheets with many of them.

          woohoo thanks for the advice...the paint pens worked really well. I haven't tried them in the dishwasher but at least they didn't rub off when I had washed them. Thanks!!!

            Those do look really good, if you've got the time it's definitely possible to make some good looking DIY personalized cups. Some good tips on how to print out the images. I think that's pretty much how the companies do it. The only problems is that if you don't leave the transparencies to bond long enough that they'll come off in the heat of the dishwasher, so like Morgan said make sure you practice on a few.

            Very awesome thread

                Hey all! Just found SUPER cheap cups at Superstore (sorry to my neighbors to the south-- I'm sure they'd have something similar at Target)

                They are a pack of four 16oz plastic cups (no handle) and each pack goes for $1.99.

                Also-- I was visiting Montana during Mother's Day weekend, and saw that Dollar Tree also had four packs of plastic cups going for $0.99!
