    Does anyone have any experience of buying stuff to sell, like coffee mugs, and getting a logo put on the mug? Has anyone got a business like this that they could recommend? Have any idea of prices? I'd appreciate some help on this as I've never been involved in anything like this before, thanks

    A number of years ago I assisted in getting a frosted type lettering applied to crystal. We used a stencil of the lettering taped tightly to the crystal and then sand blasted the cutout of the stencil resulting in a nice frosted finish to the lettering on the glass.

    I'm a buyer for a major computer s/w solutions company and we buy this stuff for marketing all the time.

    If you'd care to PM me, I'll try to get you pointed in the right direction for you.
    There may be something local, or you may use internet people. We do both.

    Try Cafepress.com. It's super easy to use, and they do the printing, sales, and shipping for you. All you do is upload your images and design your site. I've got the advanced site (a few bucks a month) and it's pretty nice. http://www.cafeshops.com/remner

    This was a long time ago, but I used to help an organization get coffee mugs and t-shirts. The same place did them both. The cost depended on which mugs you bought, color, etc. We would take in our art-work, they charged a one-time set up fee ($35 back then), the so much per mug.

    If you have a screenprinter in your local area, they can probably help you.

    heh, guess I'll chime in here also.

    My business is dye sublimation (logo's on coffee cups, tiles, shirts, etc) and custom machine embroidery (logo's on shirts, towels, etc) maybe I can help also.

    email me at:
    sales@stayyellow.com if you want to chat.

    Hi Again.

    Well, we lost the soccer game but the kids sure had a good time :)

    here are some quick samples based on your email. They are stock embroidery
    designs to give you some inspiration.

    I can convert any drawn image or likeness to enable embroidering and dye
    sublimation.
    let me know what you come up with and maybe I can be of some more help.
    please disregard any lines you see in the images. they are trim refferences
    is all and will not show on the final product. Also, each image can be
    edited to reflect just part of the image. ie: without the sayings.
    Colors can be changed and images combined.

    thanks for contacting me, I sure do appreciate it :)
