Make an impact with our heat changing printed business mugs. Unlike traditionally printed drinkware, the outer coating on WoW mugs are heat sensitive, and will change from black to transparent when a hot liquid is added.
Keep your design a secret until the moment that your customer or gift recipient goes for their early morning cup or tea or coffee, and watch as they appreciate the slow reveal. It’s a simple pleasure which never grows old, no matter how many times it is experienced.
Heat change mugs have two elements. The first is a polyester coating on the ceramic surface that is suitable for dye sublimation or printing stunning full colour images. The second is the heat sensitive outer coating, which remains black (though it is slightly transparent).
Branding via a single colour screen print is available on top of the heat sensitive coating, which will always be visible, whether the mug is hot or cold.
WoW mugs should be washed by hand to ensure that the heat sensitive coating does not degrade quickly. On the move? Use personalised travel mugs instead
We’ve seen many unique and wonderful designs using this technique. As the initial layer can be printed full colour, it’s perfect for vibrant imagery, or a collection of photographs. Screen printing ontop of the surface could be used to emulate a signature, as with our Doctor Who mugs, made for the David Tennant years! Blue chip firms have also utilised the effect with clever marketing campaigns to give away to clients and potential new employees. An inexpensive alternative to these would be personalised plastic cups.
