Thread: Laserable Mugs

  1. #1

    Laserable Mugs

    Hi everyone,
    Just had a chance to try the laserable mugs from JDS. They come out real nice. Not sure if they can be a huge seller due to the price as I final cost would be 10 ish per mug, but as a gift from me to family, friends and co-workers, it might just be good. Has anyone else tried these? I did just the red and it looks sharp. I will post picture later.

    Also due to just white engraving, not sure the market as you can get multi colored sublimated mugs for pretty cheap. Just thought I would throw it out there.
    Thanks

    I ordered a couple of the black ones as a sample.
    They came out so nice that I put them on display.
    I would say within a week I have sold about 4-5 of them at 12.00 each.
    I also spoke to the local coffee shop and got them to order 1 case at $7.00 each. Didn't make much profit on them but I got them sold nonetheless. I'll post some pictures tomorrow morning.
    One thing to keep in mind about these is you need to place something underneath them to keep them from rocking on the laser. They may be square but just rounded enough to not stay steady.

    Thats great David,
    What kind of logos or such are people asking for? Do you do just 1 side and charge more for 2 sides? As you saw, they come out crisp and very nice. May throw on my website or bring to a show.

    Being right beside the army base, I used the same artwork for my decals on the mugs, so art setup was not a problem.
    I have been doing the artwork on both sides.
    As for the coffee shop. I just took the logo and made it grayscale and burned it on no problem. With my laser 25w. It takes approx 2-3 minutes per side (Thats if only doing 1 at a time). But when I do the case order for them im just going to line 12 mugs up and burn them all at once, should be pretty quick. I am actually really pleased with these mugs. I highly recommend them if your looking for something to add to your point of sale. I put these on my display case right beside the door and everyone that comes in is very impressed. I forsee many sales to come.
    I'll have some pictures in the morning.

    Good evening...

    I've tried these. The engraving was excellent. However, there is a plug in the bottom that failed (in the dishwasher) so the inner cavity in the mug filled up with water (not the place where you put coffee...but between the place where you put coffee and the outer square wall.

    I contacted JDS to alert them.

    I nice product...however I think must be able to withstand a dishwasher.

    I ordered a sample pack today and look forward to trying them out. I couldn't find them on the JDS website either, so just called them. Thanks for the alert about the plug in the bottom. Perhaps you could put a dome of epoxy over the plug?

    I believe they are new, probably within the mast month or so. If you get on the JDS mailing list you'll get their email fliers for new and discounted/sale items.

    I haven't worked on the sample they sent.

    Those look nice!

    Dave, you mentioned you do decals on mugs.
    Do you mind sharing?

    Are the water slide, or bulk buy and fired, or the dye sub decal material?

    Do you spray coat to protect them? I contacted Krylon and they don't
    make a food safe cover coat.

    Maybe we could convince them to make tiles

    I meant to say I use the same artwork for my decals for the mugs.
    Sorry about the confusion.

    Experience is a wonderful thing.
    It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

    I did these a couple of weeks ago for a customer to take to deer camp ( Mildred is his 10 year old daughter). When she seen how "cool" they were, she wanted one too. Very easy to set up and engrave.
