Features of Our Personalised Mugs

Personalised mugs can be a great gift or an item for increasing brand awareness, whether they are given to friends, customers or employees. If you choose the right type and add an interesting design, people will be lining up to get their hands on your mugs.


Here’s everything you need to know about the features of our personalised mugs to make an informed choice.

Material

Coffee mugs can be made of different materials, each with advantages and disadvantages.

Ceramic

Ceramic coffee mugs are created by combining kaolin clay and various natural minerals with water. Once a mug is formed, it is glazed, dried and fired in an oven at high temperature. Most coffee aficionados agree that ceramic is the best material for coffee mugs.

Pros

  • Affordable
  • Sturdy
  • Relatively good insulator
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Microwave safe

Cons

  • Can chip quite easily
  • Can stain over time
  • Not suitable for travel
  • Can’t be recycled

Glass

Glass coffee mugs are made of treated glass which is stronger and won’t shatter when you add hot liquids. They are super stylish and being able to see the coffee cut through foamed milk adds a bit of a wow factor to them.

Pros

  • Sophisticated
  • Affordable
  • Recyclable 
  • Dishwasher safe 

Cons

  • Fragile
  • Poor insulator
  • Stains easily 
  • Can get cloudy

Enamel

Enamel mugs are never entirely enamel. They are actually metal coffee mugs glazed with enamel to give them a high-gloss finish.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Sturdy
  • Light
  • Ultimate vintage mugs
  • Great for outdoor use

Cons

  • Can chip and then rust
  • Not suitable for the microwave
  • Can get really hot

Stainless steel

Stainless steel mugs are another type of metal coffee mug. When iron is mixed with carbon and chromium, you get stainless steel. Double-walled stainless steel mugs have a vacuum in the middle, which makes a good insulator.

Pros

  • Stylish
  • Durable
  • Retain heat
  • Great travel mugs
  • Stain-resistant 
  • Dishwasher safe

Cons

  • Pricey
  • Not suitable for the microwave
  • Can affect the flavour of the coffee

Bamboo

The latest trend in reusable coffee mugs is mugs made of bamboo, an eco-friendly and sustainable material. At Camaloon, we combine bamboo with stainless steel to get the perfect mug.

Pros

  • Stylish
  • Durable
  • Retain heat
  • Great travel mugs
  • Dishwasher safe

Cons

  • Pricey
  • Not suitable for the microwave
  • Can affect the flavour of the coffee

Care

Most of our ceramic, glass and metal coffee mugs can be washed in a dishwasher. The recommended temperature for dishwasher washing is 30°C.

Some mugs, like our elegant espresso mugs and glitter coffee mugs, must be hand-washed with a soft sponge.
