Zazzle offers a great variety of mugs. They have 7 different styles including Travel Mugs, Stiens, Frosted Glass Mugs and now Espresso Mugs. Today I will be reviewing the 11 oz. Ringer Mugs.
As Mother’s Day approached I started to scramble in my yearly quest to find gifts for my mom and my 3 sisters, whom by the way are awesome moms! I figured, why not get them something from my Zazzle shop!
To start off, Zazzle let’s you customize your mugs any which way you’d like so after I decided I liked the Ringer Mugs best, I was off to pick the different colored handles and matching lips for them all. As you can see in the above photo, the colors are pretty close to what you see on Zazzle’s website.
I was a little nervous about buying breakables online but Zazzle packages each individual product with thick bubble wrap so everything was safe. The bubble wrap is so strong that I literally walked on top of a flat sheet of bubble wrap and not one of the bubbles popped. I found this out by playing with my cats. They seemed to enjoy the box and bubble wrap so much that I had to get in on the fun too 🙂
LEFT: SILENT ERA | ROBIN BLUE RIGHT: THE SHIELD OF THETIS MUG
The colors printed out perfectly on the mugs you see above. I think because they were vector images, the crispness and vibrant colors transfered very well on the mugs. The colored handles and lips really bring the design together.
LEFT: TREE SWING MUG RIGHT: LJUBLJANA WEEPING MUG
The mug on the right, Ljubljana Weeping, came out just the way it looks as a print. The detail was right on and the colors, once again, perfect. The detailed illustration on my Tree Swing mug (on the left) seemed to be the only one that had a slight issue.
The black lines within the drawing seemed a little darker and thicker than the original design. This seems to be because the original illustration is much bigger in size so it’s only makes sense that once shrunken down, a little bit of the detail get lost. I was a little bummed out when I noticed a small smudge towards the bottom of the mug. I’m sure that I could’ve exchanged this mug for another one but because I was cutting it close to Mother’s Day, I took my chances with it. I’m VERY happy to report it did go unnoticed and my sister was very happy to have her favorite illustration on a mug. Except for the slight smudge on one of the mugs, everything else was great. Overall I highly recommend these mugs.
