Fun graphic mugs | How About Orange

Fun graphic mugs

Awhile back I jumped on a deal that Groupon was offering for Zazzle.com: pay $25 for $50 of credit toward any customized items at Zazzle. And it seemed imperative that I spend this on mugs. Because I like mugs. So I dusted off some designs I'd made ages ago and uploaded them to the site. I was concerned that the big white border Zazzle leaves around the print area might look goofy if I chose a rectangular design, so I kept these flower and city shapes on a white background. The cups arrived last week. Happiness!

I couldn't decide on a color for the city scene, so I did two: girly pink and allover orange.

Okay - these are positively lovely. They turned out wonderful. I have to say I LOVE squirrels and I love that you put them in your design. I am trying to figure out what I can do with your squirrel ribbon because I adore it!

what joy! I love those!

I got one of those Starbucks mugs to draw on and spent all this time sketching out a simple cityscape, like your orange one. Of course the time came to draw and the marker was totally working. Sigh.

beautiful! cute designs... did they leave a white "square" around the edges?? or is just the color printed? very nice decors...

They look great! I especially love the city design, both of them actually.

Jess said...

Thanks, folks. Lisa, just the colored parts are printed.

Larissa said...

Well who wouldn't love those? sheesh, those are ridiculously cute and I'm filled with a desire to go make my own even though my mug collection has taken over an entire cabinet in my kitchen. Must tear eyes away from inspiring mug candy.

Jess said...

I sent png files. But you could send jpgs, too.
