  6. Basically there are 2 different processes to put an image on a mug. Abin Joseph above provides a great description of the sublimation process however there is another, more durable option that provides a better quality result.
    Sublimation is a widely used, but relatively low quality product. The image is transferred to special paper, applied to the mug and heat sealed at around 200C or 400F. Sublimation is not durable and will eventually chip and fade with use.
    Another option is having the photo printed as a digital ceramic decal. In this case you would send your photograph to a digital decal printing service who would then print your image using a digital decal printing machine. The mineral toners in the printer render practically any image as a waterslide ceramic decal. The decal is wetted to release from the paper backing, applied to the mug, and kiln fired at approximately 770C or 1450F. Kiln fired images last forever and produce a durable, high quality product.

    Photo Mugs are most of people lije to give as a gifts.
    A coffee cup with a nice picture on it to commemorate a member of the family, a great vacation or a beloved family home…or anything else that can fit in front of a camera.
    For that,
    You should first select a plane mug for Photo Printed Mugs.
    then select photo you want to print on Mugs. keep size as per the mug design.
    Use a specialized paper product allows for image transfer onto hard surfaces. Those who are experienced with these materials call them “transfer paper” or “decal paper.”
    The paper that you buy should have specific instructions on how to transfer the image from the paper to the surface of the photo mugs.
    to seal the image onto the mug, so that it will not wash off during cleaning. Two popular methods involve either heating the mug to seal the image, or using a clear resin to coat the mug and seal in the picture. Either way, you should have a mug that will stand the test of time.
