Personalised Mug Project

Why does tea and coffee always taste better out of your favourite mug?

Drinking tea or coffee is often a very ritualistic exercise and people become quiet addicted to the way they make it. Black, no sugar. Weak, lots of milk. Honey instead of sugar. Herbal, decaf and never instant - only filter. Whichever way you make it, you genuinely think it tastes better out of a particular cup.

So why not have the perfect cup?

All you need is some plain white cups and a porcelain pen which you can buy here for a few euro.

Just draw or write your desired image (you can wipe it clean if you're not happy with the first attempt).

Let the mugs sit for 24 hours. Then place them in an oven at 300 degrees and bake for 35 minutes.

Once they are done, let them cool and they should be dishwasher safe.

There are a some more ideas and tips to be found over at Design Mom where you can create your very own Monogrammed Mugs

So pick up a porcelain pen, put your thinking cap on and get scribbling.
