About Mugworks Mugs


Our Standard Durham Mug


Our core product and 90% of everything we make. This standard "Wycombe Rhino Coated" mug has a capacity of 330ml, height of 920mm, diameter 80mm and circumference 240mm, weight around 295g.  It is sometimes called a 10ox mug because it holds 10oz of liquid rather than weighs 10oz !!!




Based on the classic "Durham" shape it is an earthenware product, popular with clubs and as a promotional product. Popular in football shops, offices and in the home.


While the standard mug is and always has been “dishwasher safe”, we have recently introduced a further option of guaranteed dishwasher proof Duraglaze mugs with a 25p supplement. And within the Duraglaze range we can also offer “Two Tone” mugs with a coloured inner and handle which adds £1-00 to the standard price – with a choice of 12 colours in the range.



Red, Antique Pink, Orange, Bordeaux Red (Burgundy), Cambridge Blue, Cobalt Blue

Golden Yellow, Yellow, Light Green, Green, Black, Light Blue

We also have a really nice Porcelain China mug (which we call a "Sandhurst") also adding £1-00 to our standard price.   

The "Sandhurst" Porcelain Mug

The Sandhurst is a Porcelain China mug which is also Rhino Coated. It has a capacity of 280ml, a weight of approx 266 grams.  It's height is about 102mm and a diameter of 70mm / circumference 220mm of which we can print on around 165mm x 90mm height.

Our picture shows the contrast in size between the standard mug (left) and the Sandhurst Porcelain Mug which is 10mm taller, but with a smaller circumference by 4cm.




It is very much a general purpose mug and is certainly robust - but adds that touch of class that comes with a china product.  Many say it is really nice to drink tea from. 



This mug is not really suitable for printing with a "full sleeve" ... in other words with a solid colour from top to bottom. We do undertake it occasionally when asked, but the print near the lip and at the bottom can mottle a little - although customers have always appeared happy, we never feel it is the perfect finish. 


What's in a name?

Confusingly our supplier calls this mug a "Windsor Rhino Coated", so that's what you will see printed on the side of the box when it is delivered! However, we've always known this shape as a Sandhurst, so will continue to market it as such.  

Dishwasher Proof Duraglaze Mugs

As we headline in the lead to this page, Spring 2017 see's us introduce the Duraglaze Mug.  Looking exactly the same as the standard mug, it costs just 25p more per mug, but it has the added advantage of being a guaranteed dishwasher proof product.


The standard mug is and always has been “dishwasher safe”, which really means that it is pretty good in the dishwasher and is resistant to wiping the design from the mug even if dishwashed hundreds of times - indeed we test regularly and have domestically dishwashed some of our mugs for years without any adverse effects - but Duraglaze is guaranteed dishwasher proof so is ideal as a mug used in a cafe, as a club room mug where a dishwasher is used or where a supplier wants to offer their customers that little bit extra.  There is even a small stamp on the bottom of the mugs stating that it really is dishwasher proof.


Is there a point in putting up a photo, as on the surface it looks just like any of our other mugs but to prove the point ...   here is a pair of Duraglaze mugs we did for Fathers Day.



... and our ACCESSORIES range

Our growing range of accessories augment the mug supply with the obvious COASTER for putting the mugs on and we also supply unrelated products of KEY RINGS, MOUSE MATS and FRIDGE MAGNETS;
