Custom mugs – “You’re on mute” for Zoom meetings

Design, News, Print on demand

2020 has been a long year for us all, and most of us have spent an awful lot of time on Zoom meetings. That seems especially strange when you think this time last year many of us hadn’t even heard of it! Most of us have had to tell colleagues and friends “You’re on mute” hundreds of times in some cases, while silently eye rolling, and as the months have rolled by I’d been mulling over 2 things:

1. “Wouldn’t it be easier to just have a custom mug with “You’re on MUTE” printed on it, and …

2. is it ok to day drink if it’s in a mug? Kidding! Although there have been days when it’s been tempting!!

Anyway, I had to scratch the itch, and had also been intending to set up some kind of print on demand shop this year. So I’ve quickly created this custom mug which I will be merrily drinking my tea (see!) out of during Zoom meetings in 2021. Click here if you want to buy one too.

I’ve had a few ideas over the years of things I’d like to get printed, both for myself and also to turn into saleable products, so I’ve been wanting to learn about Print on Demand services for a while. Having just dipped my toe in the water I’m intending to write a blog post about the topic in 2021. For this mug I’ve used Printful.com as after a bit of google searching and some quick test on a couple of websites it was the one that seemed to offer the best and quickest set up experience. I’ve ordered one of my Zoom mugs to test the process, so now I’ll wait for it to arrive….

However I’d really like to find a UK custom mugs supplier so I’ll keep researching to see what I can find. Of course if you can recommend one then let me know!
