Info - Decorating Mugs and Plates
Depending how permanent you want your project, try the following options (in order of cost):
1. Vinyl - cheap vinyl is intended for indoor use, and the adhesive is meant for removable projects. There are other grades of vinyl for more permanent applications (but probably won't withstand dishwasher or hot water washing).

2. Waterslide/Decal paper is a relatively cheap method of decorating items eg. model trains, candles, plates, guitars
See papers to use with laser or inkjet printers here
3. Heat Transfer material can be used on products that can withstand 160° for approx 15sec. You would need a mug press to transfer these materials.
See many different types of Heat Transfer materials here
4. Sublimation methods allow for more permanent results, but this requires your project (mug, plate, etc) to be treated for sublimation. This can be costly and generally requires specialised equipment.

As per our T&Cs, we only suggest various options for your creative experimentation - it remains your responsibility to test and find the solutions for your project applications.
