How Many Quirky, Typography Mugs Does One Woman Need?
As a huge word lover, one of the first things I wanted to do when I started dabbling in print-on-demand designing was to create mugs that say things I find entertaining. That is not to say that others will find them funny. I realize that our senses of humor are unique and what strikes me as humorous might be just plain boring or overdone, to you. Sometimes it's not a funny phrase I want but an encouraging one. But this set is meant to elicit a giggle or two, for the most part.
The thing about mugs on Zazzle is that they can be customized in so many ways. Even if the mugs themselves aren't fully, 100% editable, you can still choose your size and style and often you can even get a different color on the inside. There IS a way to create mugs that you can personalize, and I do that sometimes. This is just not that set. This set is all about the phrases!
I did add an editable field to one of my favorites. It says "I still listen to Mr. Mister / Don't Judge" and it made me deliriously happy the day I designed it. First, I'm a biggole dork and I still love love listening to 80s music. (In fact, that's exactly who I realized I was listening to when the inspiration struck me and it was a good day. Hmmm.) Second, I was really excited to create this design with personalization in mind. The part that says the band's name can be replaced with YOUR guilty pleasure band or musician of choice! How cool is that? (I designed it on a little cotton tote bag, too, just so I could have one of my own, it made me that happy.)
The of the mugs in this set are just graphics created from phrases that I created in Photoshop. Using some of the mild-addiction-driven cool fonts in my collection. But in time I'll be sharing way more with you that do have more editing capabilities. For now, maybe you'll enjoy one of these! Check them out and see...
So You Love Sales???
Oh. I should tell you that although this kind of on-demand merchandise is obviously more expensive than what you'll get in your local discount or even department store, Zazzle is awesome about running sales. So keep an eye out if economy is on your mind. You can sign up for specials and I'm not kidding: they do deliver. On any given day, it's not at all surprising to see that mugs are as much as 40 or 50% off! It's worth mentioning. I sure need the deals, now that I've found this little addiction of mine. Creating my own mug designs means sometimes I simply must have one for my very own! Maybe you'll want one too!
