About theMugHermit

Sales 27,113
On Etsy since 2015

A photographer, graphic designer, musician, vintage Volkswagen owner and perfectionist who doesn't enjoy working for people!

So I took the easy decision to work for myself and design the things I love.

How did the Mug Hermit begin?

Printing mugs was my summer job in between lecturing at a Further Education college. I was so busy selling mugs I didn't devote enough time going out and doing the fun things in life. I was branded the mug hermit. Locked away designing and printing mugs day and night.

From there I used the same techniques to produce a wide range of products mainly sold in gift shops around the UK.

I take great pride in all of my products, researching every detail and buying the best materials to deliver a great product. I hope you enjoy them, love your mug!

Care instructions

My current mugs are certified dishwasher proof and microwave safe.

It is good practice to use a lower dishwasher temperature and use a small amount of detergent on all types of printed kitchenware to preserve the image quality.

I would suggest hand washing and use occasionally in the dishwasher to remove tea and coffee stains. A thick paste of baking soda and water, scrubbed lightly with a scouring pad will remove stubborn tea stains.

I need this for Friday, will it arrive on time?

We don't deliver your mail, nor have do we have any control over the postal system. Expect delays due to regional lockdown measures and the massive volumes of mail during peak times from Halloween to Christmas.

Allow sufficient time for your parcel to arrive. We are unable to accommodate rush orders. Sorry, but your order may be cancelled if a deadline is imposed on us. Please review processing times and delivery estimates before ordering. Tracked services are prioritised and will improve delivery speeds.

Can I change the delivery day if I won't be at home?

Royal Mail Tracked services allow you to choose a different delivery day if you won't be at home. You may also choose a safe place to leave your parcel such a porch, or with a neighbour.
To choose a delivery option, click on the Royal Mail tracking link in your depatch email or Etsy orders page to change these options. Your order is sent by Tracked 48.
