Mugs

Ok, time to decide on mugs. To do about 6 of them, I may want to keep the number of screens down to save time because I don't want it to be a multi-week epic. I have been trying to have new screens each week, because time is limited in how long I have access to the equipment. So if there is any aesthetics ideas, remember that 2 or three colours is best, 3-4 colours probably absolute maximum, but 1 seems too easy from the exercise point of view.

As I said before, I am planning to do: Foucault, Nietzsche, Kant, Hegel, Wittgenstein, and Russel. If there are any better suggestion, now is the time to put them forward. Schopenhauer would be good. So would Satre maybe.

Otherwise we need quotes for each. I will hopefully be making the screens next Tuesday.

The other thing is that I will have to charge cost for the mugs, but you have about 9 weeks to decide if you want them because I can do up the prints now, and heat press them when ever.

I'm sure that most people could afford the cost.

Are we going to be able to get a quote on the mug, eg on the opposite side to the image?

Rowan Blyth said...

The plan was to have image on front and quote on back. I estimate blank mugs at about $2 each, though they are very possibly cheaper. The cost isn't the issue at the moment, because I can print the transfers regardless of who actually wants them and when.

What about "I've been mugged" on each, for the quote?

Samuel Douglas said...

Sam B, I think you might get mugged when I see you next. If that is your idea of humor I'm glad I advised you against putting jokes in your essays.

Samuel said...

That wasn't a joke but one of my favourite sadistic tricks.

Extended week on those mugs. And my jugs; I can't afford the surgery yet.

Samuel said...

Now that I think about it, "Slobber on my ugly mug" might be a better slogan.

Better than slobbering on your jugs(ugh).
