We love hand made goods and love it even more when there is great lettering involved. It just might be time to retire your current hot beverage vessel and get yourself one of these bad boys from Infused Mugs.
When we saw what Infused Mugs were doing, we wanted to know more so we got in touch to find out about their process. They are a team that love calligraphy and want to bring more of it into their everyday lives. Morning coffee and calligraphy, it’s a tough match to beat.
Printing calligraphy on a cylinder is deceptively complex. The challenge is not only printing on curved surface but also ensuring the artwork fits aesthetically with the mug. Extra care was taken in selecting exact quotes and letter counts to create the perfect marriage of artwork and mug.
A big challenge Infused Mugs faced was that their work didn’t look right on mass produced mugs. Rather than settle for a something they weren’t happy with, they chose to design their own shape and produce their own ceramic base. Taking inspiration from metal tourist/camping mugs, a 3D model was created to form the base mould. From pouring the ceramic to screen printing the graphics, the entire process is done by hand.
