    Use for mistake mugs

    Hi, I'm new to the group and a newbie to sublimation. I've been selling mugs online for a few months. I've had quite a learning curve so I have a few mugs that are total failures and a few that just didn't come out well due to bleeds. I found the answer to solve that issue on this forum, thank you!

    Has anyone found a way to use those mistake mugs? Can you re-sub over them with a darker design?

    TIA,
    Teresa

    It would make sense to donate them to charity, schools or a care home rather than to throw them, even if they are only used once, but there are pitfalls.

    If you are printing someone elses design there is a limit to what you can do with them for copyright reasons. If you are printing your own designs do you want a load of seconds out there?

    We once donated a load of plates etc. to the local school. Never forget my wife's face when she saw them being used on a stall at the school fair...... As target practice! We thought they were going to sell them not smash them! Haha.

    Maybe donate your mugs to the school :-)

    We tend to use the "White spaces" around the design for colour lesting. Some quite pleasing psychedelic art can result! Then my wife smahes them up for "crocks" in flower pots.

    A long as they are only say a little off centre or something I sell mine on eBay with 100% going to cancer research.

    anything more than that I either bin them or use them to stand the hot mugs on after pressing. A hot mug cools faster on the top of a cold mug ;)

    We give them to people getting married. Its called a Polterabend where the need to smash Porcelain to bring them luck. Usually onto a patio or terrace so it can be swept up afterwards.

    Since starting I have only done 4 errors so not enough to give away to homeless shelters.
    i don’t have problems with mugs really, I have always found it pretty straightforward so the only issue I find is making sure the image is straight on the mug before pressing.
