The interest and creativity on our campus for designing custom 11oz mugs has been amazing.  We have placed two templates in WebCRD where you can add your design and send it off for printing on our dye-sublimation equipment.  As the semester winds down, consider creating a design to thank a roommate, professor, staff, family or friend.  $6.99 per mug. 

Log in to your WebCRD account and choose the IC Office Catalog> Center for Print Production Items>IC Inventory Items.  There are two options for the photo mugs.  A two sided design and a continuous design.  The dimensions the design needs to meet are listed.

We have samples to display at the graduation fair next week that will include bandannas for you and your favorite dog, flip flops, football shaped key ring and a card caddy that you can attach to your cell phone.  All customizable by you!
