What makes products in this section so popular?
Nations were built on the drinking of tea and coffee, so our wholesale mugs are a natural topseller, whether your customers are buying for presents, home décor or simply a souvenir of their favourite holiday moments. With the rise and rise of coffee drinking and tea rooms, mugs are a must buy for retailers and customers alike. With our vast collection of styles and designs in traditional ceramic as well as stainless steel flasks and new-age goblets, from kitsch tropical, gothic and spiritual-themed mugs, to classic cycling designs, seasonal themes, all kinds of animals, and a range of souvenir mugs, we’ve got all types of retailers covered. Suitable for almost any kind of outlet, from museums, historical sites and souvenir shops to card shops and general gift retailers, mugs are a sure-fire item to sell well. We use artists Lisa Parker, Ted Smith, Lauren Billingham, Jan Pashley, Chouko and Midnight Chouko, ensuring all our mug designs use high quality images and give the retailer original and exciting product lines.
Who buys them?
All kinds of customers through a cross-section of age and gender.
What kind of retailers should stock these products?
A key homeware item, mugs fit well into a large range of retail spots. Our wholesale gothic, angel and fairy mugs are particularly well suited for new-age spiritual shops while the wolf and unicorn designs sell well both there and in more mainstream fashion shops, due to increasing demand for these kinds of images in the youth market.
Tourist attractions such as landmarks, historical sites and museum gift shops do particularly well with our souvenir-themed mugs. We also sell a range of animal and tropical designs that are suited to wildlife-themed attractions like zoos, farm parks and garden centres. Alongside these runs our huge range of generalist themes from florals to beach designs, rural scenes, or those depicting popular hobbies like cycling, crafting and baking – these are consistent sellers in virtually any retailer from card shops to lifestyle stores and everything in between.
How well do these products sell?
Mugs make ideal gifts both between friends, colleagues and inter-generationally, so there’s a market for sales all year round. They are some of the most popular products on our site due to their versatility, and sell consistently well across all sectors of retail.
Do you need a certificate to sell any of these products?
No, there is nothing prohibiting sales of mugs generally. We would of course advise supervision of smaller children with hot drinks, but most customers will already be aware of this.
Are these products affected by seasonal sales?
Mugs are a popular item all year round, being a common impulse or opportunistic purchase. Peaks can occur around Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, as well as during the autumn and winter when people are cosying up with more hot drinks, and around Christmas, when they are often purchased as Secret Santa gifts.
How are they packed?
Most of our mugs will come packaged with protective padding to protect from chips and cracks. Some will come in boxes individually or in bulk.
What if my items arrive damaged?
We take care to ensure our packaging protects your order from any damage but we can't prevent every eventuality. If your goods are damaged in transit, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of delivery with your order details and we will arrange returns.
