This was a decal that was printed and
fired on the mug by us. Some of the
detail was hand-painted into the design.
The mugs were used by one of the
squadrons at the local Air Force Base
where we lived.

When Ray and I owned our home
business, one of the things we made was
ceramic decals. We were hired by a lot of
clients to make decals for them to fire
onto coffee mugs, or to make the mugs
for them, too. Here are some examples

We liked the ceramic decal printing business
so much that we decided to ,make some of
our own artwork and make cups for
ourselves. Each of these was designed by us.
The photo with the group of three cups is

designed so that people could order their
favorite verse and have their name on the
opposite side. Many people used them to
give as Christmas gifts for friends and family
One really favorite idea that we did was to
have people submit designs their child had
drawn, convert the design to a decal and fire
it onto a cup. We had several Scout troops
do this as gifts for Father’s Day or
Christmas. That way a parent had a
keepsake that would last for years.

purchase of their instant coffee.
