Reviewing How the Printing on Zazzle Mugs Stand the Test of Time

Review of Zazzle Mugs

I was making a coffee the other day and I looked at one of my favourite coffee mugs and was struck by how vibrant it still is as I feel like I've had it forever.  That mug was one that was created on Zazzle and I won it in a competition on a content site that closed down in June 2015.

I can't remember if I received the mug in March of 2013 or 2014, but either way, as you can see from the photo it really is as vibrant today as it was then.   I couldn't tell you how many mugs of coffee or hot chocolate I have enjoyed in this mug during that time (I use a different mug or cup for my tea).  It also survived the year of the mug cake which was delicious, but my waistline didn't appreciate it!

I should note that although the mugs are dishwasher friendly I actually don't have a dishwasher so it has always been hand-washed, even so, many other graphic mugs that we've had over the years don't look nearly as bright and vibrant a decade later.

Zazzle's mugs are available in a number of different designs so whether you need a new mug for yourself or whether you're looking for a gift idea, mugs make great gifts.  Whether you're after a mug for the holidays or another occasion why not check Zazzle out?  You can either go straight to the site and search or you can share the love and check out some of our contributor's stores.

Have you ever brought a Zazzle mug before?  I'd love to hear about your purchase in the comments.

  1. This is a great testimonial to how well Zazzle designs stay on an item used frequently - as coffee cups certainly do daily at my house. Thanks, Louann.

  2. I wanted to let you know that I have several Zazzle mugs over the years, some more than 10 years old and you are right the colors and designs are still as crisp as the day we got them. Also mine do go in the dishwasher regularly. Thanks for including my Zazzle stores in your review.

  3. I love Zazzle! It has been too long since I created anything new there and you have reminded me that I need to do that. I have quite a few Zazzle mugs and have given a lot of them as gifts too. I do wash mine in the dishwasher (one I am using right now has been washed hundreds of times in the dishwasher). The artwork is still just as vibrate and intact as the day I first received it. Zazzle mugs are truly awesome!

  4. There are so many design choices on Zazzle and it’s great to know that the printing on the mugs stands the test of time! Congratulations on your winning design.

  5. I love Zazzle mugs and they make great gifts! There are wonderful choices and designs to suit everyone. I really enjoy creating designs on Zazzle. It is good to know they last so well.

  6. I have to agree with you - I have a mug upstairs I printed in the 1990's and it's still like it was the first day I got it! I hadn't really thought of that until your article
