Sublimation mugs have become the canvas for personal expression, branding, and gifting. But not all mugs are created equal. What distinguishes a good sublimation mug from the rest? Let's delve into the essential qualities that define the crème de la crème of sublimation mugs.


Quality is King

Quality reigns supreme. A good sublimation mug starts with high-quality materials, ensuring vibrant and long-lasting prints. The surface should be smooth and even, providing an ideal canvas for intricate designs. Many cheaper mugs have pinholes, marks, yellowing of the ceramic or just break very easily under the heat and press of your mug press.


Vibrant Colour

Colour plays a pivotal role. Mugs with a bright white base coat offer the perfect backdrop for vivid colours to pop. Consistency in colour across batches is crucial for maintaining brand integrity.


Packaging

A well-packaged mug not only enhances its appeal but also ensures safe transit, guarding against any potential damage during shipping. Presentation adds value, making it a delight to receive and gift. We use extra strong carton boxes to transport our mugs and whilst couriers can be a bit rough with deliveries, we do everything possible to protect your order on it's way to you. We also have one of the largest stocks of smashproof mailing boxes that you can buy to use to then send your mugs out to your customers safely and saving space and money.


Dishwasher Proof

Durability for dishwashing is non-negotiable. A good sublimation mug should withstand repeated cycles in the dishwasher without fading or peeling. This ensures that the vibrant design remains intact, preserving its aesthetic appeal over time. Our ULTRA A+ mugsare the only independently certified mugs that have been tested up to 3,500 dishwasher cycles.


Price

While quality comes at a cost, it shouldn't be exorbitant. A good sublimation mug offers a balance between quality and affordability, making it accessible to a wide range of consumers and applications. Our white mugs go as low as 88p per mug and even our coloured sublimation mugs are the most competitively priced in the UK. 


In conclusion, a good sublimation mug combines quality materials, vibrant colours, secure packaging, durability for dishwashing, reasonable pricing, and relevant certifications. We're proud to offer some of the best and keenly priced sublimation mugs and drinkware in the country and are sure that we can help you in whatever project you are working on.
