Frequently asked questions

How much is delivery?

Mugs are dispatched all over the UK by Royal Mail using 2nd class post. Please allow 3-5 working days for delivery. International orders are £4.50 for the first item and then £1 for EACH additional item. For bulk orders for business and Corporate customers, delivery is charged by weight and location. An estimate will be advised at quotation stage and charged at cost upon final invoice. Please email for more information. Lead times to delivery depend on volumes ordered, however, as a guide - up to 500 units usually takes 2 weeks from approval of artwork. Larger volumes will take longer due to the production process.

Is it dishwasher and microwave proof?

All mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe.
As with all plastics, it's always better to use neither. We would much rather you used nice warm soapy water and avoid the microwave where possible.
If you must use dishwasher and microwave, we strongly recommend you always remove the grip/sleeve and handwash this to preserve the print wearing.
