displaying my digiart

aug-12-(1)

I’d been wondering how to display my digiart pieces with the Dr Seuss quotes.  Then I received an e-mail alert of a 48 hour special on printed mugs from the online photo printer that I use (Photoshop) and I had an accidental smashing time with some of my mugs.

So I ordered 5 mugs using the images in the colours that match my decor.  The picture space is narrower than the pieces so I had to crop.  With the brown one I divided the quote across two mugs.

I’m really pleased with the mugs.  The colour and print quality is good and it is such a fun way to have my digiart displayed and used.

I will definitely be using my own art the next time I need to buy some mugs. 

Have use had any photos or art printed onto mugs?

Wonderful idea - so much more durable and interesting than a photo. Hope they survive as these really are SMASHING!

This is a brilliant idea! Perfect for Dr Seuss, but I'm thinking of the other possibilities now too. You could bring out a whole range!

These are super! I think the artwork and style really fit the size/style of mugs.

What a fabulous idea Helena. I've not done this but my SiL does with her art. I have a mug and matching coaster of hers on my desk.

Oh my gosh, Helena, this is such a great idea! I love that you used your own art on these mugs, and I love that the art has quotes that are meaningful to you. These are great!!!
