The mug is available in both 11 and 15 oz sizes, and is both microwave and dishwasher safe. Delivery time varies depending on the selected shipping option. Expedited shipping is available upon request. If this is a gift, let me know and I can include a gift message. :)

This in an amazing seller. My package got lost with UPS and she reimbursed me for the shipping and then sent the item again without charging me. An incredibly generous and integer person. Customer satisfaction is her top priority. The customized cup was beautiful and the seller had wrapped it very well to avoid breakage.

I am happy to customize any design or create something special for you. The possibilities are endless! When ordering a customized product, I will send you a preview of the design for you to approve before I make it.

For non-gift orders, I will use up-cycled packaging when possible. I believe very strongly in reusing and minimizing waste. I hope it warms your soul to know that your package will have more than one life :)
Occasionally we will receive orders before we are able to update our availability. If this happens, we will email you immediately and offer three options: 1) the mug can be printed on a different color mug (same size), 2) if a different size mug in the same color is available we can switch the size and refund the difference in price (if applicable), or 3) we can cancel and refund the order. If we don't hear back from you before your selected shipping window about what your preference is, we will send you a mug in the closest color option (same size you ordered).
Although we package our products very carefully, occasionally a mug will arrive broken. Please contact us as soon as possible and send a few pictures of the broken mug. We will resend a new mug free of charge as soon as we can.
