How Ceramic Mugs Are Made

How Ceramic Mugs Are Made

Most people prefer drinking their coffee or tea from ceramic mugs. These containers have been around ever since anyone can remember and remained popular for their classic look and reliability. There is no doubt that these ceramic mugs will continue to be around for a very long time.


The Process of Making Promotional Ceramic Mugs

There are actually two methods which can be used to make mugs: hand building or industrial process. For obvious reasons, the process of creating ceramic mugs manually is time consuming. The resulting mugs will also be unique with each other. On the other hand, you can expect to produce a lot of ceramic mugs in a short time when you have machines to do it fr you. The industrial method also guarantees the ceramic mugs to look identical.

Handcrafted Ceramic Mugs

When it comes to manually making a ceramic mug, everything is dependent on the individual's creativity and skill. Here is a step by step guide:

Step 1: Create a cup on a potter's wheel using clay

Step 2: Bake the finished cup in a kiln

Step 3: Wait for the cup to cool off before checking for cracks or other imperfections.

Step 4: Glaze for a glossy look.

Step 5: Decorate by hand painting the ceramic mug.

Mass Manufacture of Ceramic Mugs

For the industrial process, there are certainly more steps and the process a lot more complicated. Check it out below:


Step 1: Create a prototype of the mug in plastic or plaster. Plastic is preferred as it does not get damaged during the mold casting. This prototype can either be carved or handmade and contains details which are desired for the final product.

Step 2: Create the molds. This is an important step as it is the means to replicate the ceramic mugs. In most cases, several molds are created to increase productivity. They contain four parts: two halves for the body and two halves for the handles.

Step 3: Cast the clay into the mold. There are three kinds of clay material which can be used to make the mugs: stoneware, porcelain or earthenware. The clay is diluted and then cast into the molds.

Step 4: Leave clay to harden. In this step, the plaster mold will be absorbing the moisture from the clay.

Step 5: Remove molds from the hardened clay.

Step 6: Place the hardened mugs into a kiln for the firing process. The industrial kilns are usually capable of holding hundreds of cups and come with plenty of shelves. The temperature will be dependent on the clay material used. For example, porcelain will require 2,600 degrees Fahrenheit. On the other hand, earthenware requires temperatures below 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the kiln size and type, the firing process can take from anywhere between 2 and 12 hours.

Step 7: Apply decals on the ceramic mugs after they have cooled down.

Step 8: Prepare cups for second firing.

Step 9: Remove the ceramic mugs from kiln and allow them to cool down.

The Best Way to Remove Old Coffee Stains from Mugs & Carafes

By lucy yuan 8 years ago 3987 Views No comments

Peek into my cupboards and you'll know I drink coffee — the stubborn brown stains on my mugs prove it. Even worse is the bottom of my Chemex carafe, which builds up an ugly residue that no amount of scrubbing with soap can remove. Luckily, I found a cheap, quick way to clean away old coffee stains without any harsh chemicals or special cleansers.

All it takes is some baking soda. Sprinkle a little baking soda onto the bottom of your stained cup or carafe, add just enough water to form a paste, and scrub. The gentle abrasion of the baking soda scrubs away stains in a matter of minutes.

This method was especially successful for the stains in my Chemex carafe, which no amount of elbow grease or vinegar soaks seemed to budge. As you can see in the photos, there are a couple especially stubborn stains that even several minutes of scrubbing couldn't remove, but the difference is still impressive.

Scrubbing mugs is even easier, and the stains lift off in seconds. If you've started to notice a brown residue on your coffee mugs and carafes, try adding an occasional baking soda scrub to your cleaning rotation. It's easy and it works!

Do you have any tips for cleaning coffee stains out of mugs and coffee carafes?

How Colour Change Mugs Work

By lucy yuan 8 years ago 5838 Views No comments

Colour Change Mugs

How Do They Work?

Colour Change Mugs have a unique thermo-sensitive (heat sensitive) colour coating that reacts under heat with the effect that it turns transparent. This enables any image (photograph or logo) that's printed on the mug to be displayed in all its glory.

When the Colour Change Mug is cold, the thermo-sensitive coating retains its colour and this has the effect of hiding the image. Mugs with dark colour thermo-sensitive coatings hide the image better than light colour coatings. Light colour coatings can be useful for creating a unique colour change effect or if your logo is predominantly of the same colour as the coating. In this latter instance, the logo will be hidden better by the mug that has the same colour coating as your image. (Example - a red logo would be mostly hidden by the red colour change Mug.)

Colour Change Mugs are not intended to hide the image totally when the mug is cold, rather they are designed to provide a colour change effect.

Handling Instructions

Colour Change Mugs are not suitable for dishwasher use. Gentle hand cleaning is recommended. Note that extensive/frequent cleaning over a long period may cause the colour of the thermo-sensitive coating to fade. We supply a range of dishwasher-safe white mugs that are better suited to daily use.
