we're a graphic design studio in Tulsa, OK area - we are launching a clothing line centered around street rod and kustom kulture art, and would like to do some mugs to give away as promotions at car shows - we have 3 designs drawn up so far, and are looking to have the first one sculpted and a silicone and plaster mold made for short runs

please contact me if interested at and we can look at pricing / services available, etc.

i thought about that - but we want to have control over the production - the design fee of $250 - $500 is fine, but we don't want to have to order 1000 units for their minimum. also, looking around the forums, we really dig some of the artists on here and would love to have their interpretation of our sketches

There are plenty of mug makers on here to seek out and ask about producing a run of mugs for you.Many don't really post on here as much anymore so it may be more beneficial for you to find them online and email them

Not sure of prices or if they would want/have the ability to make mugs for you but some mug makers you may want to reach out to:
Eekum Bookum - John Mulder
Bosko
TikiDiablo
Bowana
MP
Tobunga- Eric October
Squid - Dave Cohen
Babalu
Tiki Tony

and there are a bunch more--just check the Other Crafts thread and start emailing.

Good luck!

Squid and Eekum Bookum should be top of the list.

It sounds like the perfect job for Eekum Bookum - John Mulder

I'm really limited on time since I'm a weekend mug maker. Plus I have my own projects to work on. talk to John, I know he has been offering a great deal on sculpting and short runs. Although you say "giveaways"... I don't think you'll be giving away any of our mugs as they will run you $30-$40 minimum unless you are ordering large quantities. Good Luck!

thanks for all the replies and direction! got some emails out and hope to hear back

MauiTiki - thanks for letting me know - you do amazing work!

we're just looking for a master sculpt made, and we'll make the mugs here - our customers want to give these away instead of spending the same or more on a custom trophy - they thought this would fit the theme of their clothing line a little more
