How to Write on Glass Coffee Mugs

Adding a personalized message or design to a glass coffee mug is a great way to create a unique and fun gift for a friend or family member! Here are some tips on how to write on glass coffee mugs.

Step 1: Choose Your Mug

Choose a glass coffee mug that is clear or lightly tinted. Avoid using mugs with painted designs as you won’t be able to write on them.

Step 2: Gather Your Supplies

You will need:

  • Glass coffee mug
  • Permanent marker
  • Paper towels and rubbing alcohol
  • Thin paintbrush
  • Glass paint

Step 3: Clean the Mug

Clean the mug with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel to remove any dirt and oils.

Step 4: Write with a Permanent Marker

Using a permanent marker, write your message or design on the mug. Allow the ink to dry for a few minutes. If the ink runs or is not to your satisfaction, gently wipe it away with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel.

Step 5: Add Details with Glass Paint

For an added level of detail to your message, use a thin paintbrush to paint with glass paint. Allow the paint to dry and cure for 24 hours.

Step 6: Bake the Mug

Once painted, bake the mug in an oven preheated to 350°F for 30 minutes. Allow the mug to cool in the oven.

Step 7: Clean and Enjoy

Finally, clean the mug with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol and it’s ready to use!

Creating a personalized glass coffee mug is a great way to show someone how much you care. Just follow these steps for creating a unique and fun gift!
