About Your Custom Travel Mugs
Stop buying expensive coffee to go every morning and instead design custom travel mugs. These handy mugs are perfect for those busy mornings where you do not have time to sit and enjoy your necessary coffee or tea. Design your own travel mug and we will print your artwork around the body of the mug, creating a one of a kind every day essential that you will not be able to live without. Made from durable and shatterproof plastic, your travel coffee mugs are fitted with a secure black lid that features a slide opening. This will prevent your beverage from spilling and will also help keep the warmth in. The full colour, lasting print will show off your designs beautifully, while the shape of the mug allows it to fit into any standard car cup holder.

How Your Custom Travel Mugs Are Made
Your travel coffee mugs are expertly handmade to order at the Contrado studio in London. Once your designs are submitted our print technicians carefully check it before printing it onto your custom travel mug. Our specialist print technology means that the inks penetrate the face of the glossy plastic, creating a long-lasting and vibrant finish that will not rub off or peel away. Available in a travel mug design which although isn't thermal, the durable plastic body and the secure lid will help keep your drink warm long enough for you to enjoy it, or a thermal flask option with no handle, which is lined to keep your drink warmer for longer. The matt black lid is added to create a secure finish to your bespoke travel mug.
In order to keep your mug looking its best at all times, we recommend cleaning it by hand using warm, soapy water. Please refrain from cleaning your mug in a washing machine. Please note that the lid is very secure but it is not fully waterproof, so please do not tip your mug upside down, or it may leak.
Your designs are printed onto the main body of your travel mug. We wrap them around the circumference of the mug, creating a continual design. There is a small gap left blank where the handle is on the travel mug, so please be aware that your artwork will have a beginning and an end. The thermal flask is rounded with no handle, and you can customise the front left and right with either the same image or different designs. You can ensure that it looks perfect by playing with your design in our online interface. The surface area is quite large and is the perfect space for repeat patterns and bold and vibrant prints.

Frequently asked questions:

The lid on your new mug fits very securely onto the body of the mug. It has a rubber sealant that helps keep the lid secure and also prevents leaks. The opening on the lid however is not waterproof, and if the mug is held upside down, it might leak slightly.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
