We specialise in making named mugs/personalised mugs at Bentham Pottery. We make named mugs for companies, named mugs for fell races, named mugs for special events and commemorative named mugs.
We deal in all quantities of mugs, whether you want only one or one thousand.
All our mugs are hand thrown on a pottery wheel. We create a sprig mold, which involves carving a design into a plaster stamp that can be applied on the side of the mug. We can personalize individual mugs by imprinting individual letters.
If you need named mugs for any occasion then ideally email me a design/motif idea with the required text and I’ll let you know if it is possible. The best designs are usually simple line drawings.
Personalised mugs are available in the following glazes: white, apple green, cobalt blue, Tenmoku (brown/black) and oatmeal.
Named Mugs – Prices
For individual named mugs you really need to contact me with your requirements and I’ll get back to you with a price.
For larger quantities of mugs I charge £35 for the sprig to be carved. This is a one off payment. However if you need the year changing (as a lot of events do in subsequent years), then I charge £10 every year for this update.
After the sprig is made then we charge:
For orders of less than 24 mugs you need to contact me for a price (as there may be other method for smaller quantities)..
For orders of 24 mugs – £8.50 per mug
For orders 25 – 39 mugs – £7.50 per mug
For orders 40+ – £5.30 per mug
