The Positive Instinct's Story

Hello and welcome to Positive Instinct's Etsy shop.

My name is Sarah, I'm 22 years old and I am the sole owner of Positive Instinct. I started Positive Instinct in October 2017 after leaving my business administration job. I left with the aim to have my own business, be my own boss and to make a positive impact on people's lives...no matter how small! Since starting Positive Instinct I have also set up two other businesses: Digital Business Base and The Warwickshire Review where I help small businesses with their online marketing and showcase local businesses in Warwickshire.

Handprinted, ceramic mugs designed with meaningful messages that are delivered all over the world! Designed and handprinted by me, at home in Warwickshire UK using the sublimation printing process.

My design inspiration mainly comes from my own personal recovery journey over the years and my desire to help others who are experiencing troubles in their lives whether it be mental, physical or emotional. My mugs are designed to be gifts (to yourself or others) that just keep on giving, both visually and practically...as they reinforcing their positive messages every time they're used!

I handprint and package each mug myself to ensure only top quality products arrive at your door! I use the sublimation printing method to produce each mug by hand, so each one is ever so slightly different. The process uses high heat and pressure to ensure vibrant, long-lasting prints that are both dishwasher and microwave safe for added practicality. Each mug is shipped to you in a Positive Instinct break-proof box, so no need to worry about your order arriving broken. I try to be as environmentally friendly as possible so you will find virtually no plastic with your order.
P.s. Please reuse or recycle your mug box!

If you can't quite find the mug that you're looking for, you have a corporate request or bulk order please message via Etsy or email me (sarah@positiveinstinct.com) and I will help bring your ideas to life!

💕Thank you for reading my story, I would love to hear what you think of my shop; feel free to drop me a message and connect on social media too!

Kind regards
Positive Instinct

Mugs can be customised/personalised when placing your order by specifying any requests in the customisation box. Please specify the text, colour and position of the personalisation. The position of text can be in any of the following places: horizontal opposite the handle, above/below the original design on one/both sides or instead of the design on one side. Lack of detail may result in me making the decision

Gift wrapping is not available. However you can include a gift message at the checkout which I will personally write by hand on a Positive Instinct notelet at no extra cost.

Wholesale availability

Yes! Please contact me for more information


I print all my ceramic mugs myself at home using the sublimation printing method. Each mug is printed by hand therefore each and everyone is slightly unique.


The environment is very important to Positive Instinct, therefore all mugs are shipped to you in break-proof cardboard boxes that don't require bubble wrap or additional non-environmentally friendly packaging!

Large orders may require a small amount of bubble wrap to avoid the boxes clashing together in transit, but this is kept to an absolute minimum :)

Please try to reuse or recycle your mug box!
