The custom heat changing mugs made with your photos turns your daily cup of joe into an event.

Made from strong, solid ceramic in either blue or black, our heat and reveal mugs make a wonderfully unique gift. Kids will love the magic and your other half will love to see a sweet nothing appear on his morning cup of coffee. Due to the fact that you may be able to see part of the design through the coating, we would advise choosing lighter colors where possible. A heat sensitive mug, custom made, will make that first sip in the morning taste even better.

What Will My Heat Sensitive Mug Actually Look Like?

Well, it arrives cold so all you’ll see at first glance is a dark surface – either blue or black depending on your base color choice. You will also be able to see the outline of the design underneath. The heat activation occurs on the body of the personalized mug, so your handles will remain either blue or black. Just put the coffee pot on, fill your mug with hot water, and the black or blue base color will disappear, revealing your personalized design underneath. Tada!

Who Would Love a Heat Sensitive Mug Personalized for them?

Girlfriends, fiancés, dads, children...we think the color changing mug is for everybody. They make a great Mother’s Day gift when personalized with a golden oldie photograph of an old-school grinning face dug out from the attic. Or for grandparents, customize with a photo collage to put a smile on their face.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images on just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 3.93". There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Heat reactive

We print your images or text onto a special layer that reacts to the hot liquid inside the heat photo mug, changing from the base color to white, which reveals your design. Your heat sensitive mug, custom handmade to order, is all done by our printing experts.

Please note: Depending on your design, you may be able to see part of the image show through the coating on your custom heat changing mugs. We have shown this within the images.

Photo wrapping

Your chosen photos or design wrap around the body of the mug all the way to the handle, and cover the full height, leaving almost no white space, so this is great for full impact designs. If you’re looking to print a special message, remember to start it from the bottom, as the photo reveal begins here.

It’s time to get creative and let your imagination run free! Personalized heat sensitive mugs make brilliant baby shower favors as you can keep the sex of the baby a secret until the final moment when you pour your guests a cup of tea! Simply print your message in reverse order to reveal your big news, i.e. ‘Girl A It’s’ or ‘Boy A It’s’ so the message starts at the bottom of your custom-made heat change mug. This idea also works for moms-to-be; break the wonderful pregnancy news to your partner in a cute and unique way by printing the baby scan or a sweet message. The heat sensitive mug, custom designed by you, can be anything you want it to be.

Our custom heat changing mugs are so clever and help you tell something in a bespoke way. For a truly unique wedding proposal, print the big question onto a heat sensitive mug for a cup of coffee that won’t ever be forgotten!
