What is a Customised Mug?

Personalise mugs to suit your decor. Add photos and text.

Who doesn’t love letting their personality shine through their mugs? For years, #1 MUM or #1 DAD mugs reigned supreme, along with mugs featuring your favourite cartoon characters, movie references, and more. But with Snapfish, it’s easier than ever to make something 100% custom and unique for you or your loved ones.

Choose Your Mug Style

At Snapfish, we offer a wide range of mugs for you to personalise. We have customisable 11 oz white standard and 15 oz. large white coffee mugs. Our 11 oz. white matt coffee mug is a sophisticated and elegant addition to any kitchen, and can be customised to suit your decor or taste.

Personalised latte mugs

You can also create personalised 17 oz. latte mug which gives you even more space for photos and designs (and your coffee)! If you’re looking for something a bit more elevated, you can personalise our 10 oz. white porcelain mug. Looking for something to take on the go? Try our 16 oz. reusable travel mug complete with a screw-on lid.

Customised travek nugs with photo and text

We also have the ever-popular 11 oz. magic mug that appears black at first glance, but once you fill it with a hot drink, your photos or designs are revealed! Lastly, we have our range of coloured custom coffee mugs which showcases a cute pop of colour on the handle and interior of the mug. You can get yours in yellow, red, blue, black, and pink.

Designs we love for personalised Mother's Day gifts!

How To Design Your Personalised Mug

The next step is to choose which photos or design elements you want to use to personalise your mug. Our easy-to-use builder makes is super straightforward. Just upload your photos, select embellishments, add text, and make a mug that is 100% uniquely you.

Are you giving a mug as a gift? We make it easy for you to create personalised sister mugs, best friend mugs, and more. Choose your favourite photo of the two of you together and add it into one of our stunning pre-made designs. No photo? No problem! We have many non-photo design layouts too. This is a gift that’s sure to make your friend or loved one smile!

We want you to love your custom mug, which is why we recommend that you only use high resolution images. This helps ensure the best possible outcome for the printing process and your end product.

Photo and non photo mugs available

What Material are Mugs Made From?

Our standard coffee mug (11 oz.), large coffee mug (15 oz.), and latte mug (17 oz.) are all made from white ceramic. These photo mugs are also microwave and dishwasher safe, which makes them easy to use and easy to clean!

Customised mugs with fun text

The magic coffee mug and matt coffee mug are both also ceramic, but they feature a matt finish. These two are both microwave and dishwasher safe as well. Our coloured mugs are ceramic as well, just featuring your chosen colour inside of the mug and on the handle. These can be safely washed in the dishwasher and put in the microwave too.

The 10 oz. porcelain mug is made from porcelain and is microwave safe and dishwasher safe too. Our 16 oz. travel mug is made of stainless steel with a white enamel finish. It’s lined with insulating plastic and features a spill-proof screw-on cap.

The recommendation for all of our mugs is to use a mild detergent and no bleach to maintain your stunning photo quality. Each of our personalised coffee mugs are durable and gorgeous, especially if you follow our best practices for preserving the image quality. They are also perfect for tea and hot chocolate!
