|I designed these mugs to have a long wrap around design that shows off the birds whether you're left or right handed, drinking or watching someone else drink. I have my morning coffee in one of these every morning. Heck, I see a finch on a mug before I even see a finch in the birdroom!
Why use Cafepress? A company called Cafepress produces all the mugs with my designs. Print on demand they call it. The advantage is, I don't have to stock and send out cups. Easy for me. The advantage for you is that you get the cups sent off quickly, they have a web shopping cart and you can use your credit card for transactions. They guarantee their products and you can mix and match and order as many or as few as you would like. The process they use for printing is also quite interesting. If I were to have these full color cups produced by traditional methods, they would have a heavy screen pattern similar to a comic book. The process they use results in no visible screen pattern and clear vibrant colors. I have been quite pleased with them and have every one of these in my cupboard.
What do I get? $1. That's it. The price is $1 above their cost so that I can track the number of cups that are sold and determine which cups are selling and if I should add other designs. You can't be so cheap as to begrudge me $1, can you?
Mug Care Instructions The mugs can be safely placed in the dishwasher and microwave, however, Cafepress recommends that you handwash these cups so as to avoid fading the colors. This has been reported to me by others who have repeatedly washed their mugs in the dishwasher. Whatever the process is, it doesn't take kindly to high heat. This doesn't mean you can't have a hot cuppa coffee or tea in the thing, just try to avoid the inhumanly hot stuff that microwaves, dishwashers, blow torches or scalding comments from mother-in-laws can cause.
