What Material are Mugs Made From?

Our standard photo coffee mug, available in 11 oz., 15 oz., and 20 oz. sizes, as well as black and white colors, are ceramic. Our photo mugs are also microwave and dishwasher safe, which makes them easy to use and easy to clean! The magic coffee mug is also ceramic but should not be microwaved or put in the dishwasher, as it will ruin the magical effect!

Customised mugs with fun text

The grande coffee mug with lid is also made with a heavyweight ceramic, featuring a matte finish, but is not recommended for dishwashing or microwaving. Handwashing is preferred for this mug style.

Our enamel campfire mug is made from stainless steel with an enamel finish and should also only be handwashed to preserve the vibrancy of your photos.

The insulated coffee mug is 4.5 inches tall and made from double-insulated stainless steel with a snap-on acrylic lid. Again, handwashing is recommended for this mug style.

Each of our coffee mugs are durable and gorgeous, especially if you follow our best practices for preserving the image quality.
