How to put a design on a metal cup? Answered

Hey Guys!

So I'm a bit new to this (meaning I'm totally new.) So I'm not sure if this question has been asked before,. If it has, please redirect me to it :)
I'm looking to 'personalise' a metal traveller's mug, and just metal mugs in general and i was wondering what options are available? I want to go through the options before i pick the method that i'll use. What i want to do exactly is to put my design on the cup permanently. I've seen someone use a vinyl decal and a powder coating machine, but that's pretty expensive to get over here. So what are the other ways i can do that? 

I hope someone can shed some light on this for me,
Thanks :)


Put your design on a very very sticky sticker and then attach that sticker on your metal mug. For best results, use a water color paper as the body of your sticker.

I love the designs, I love tea and I love that you shared your tips for how to apply the vinyl to a curved surface!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

Search for "powder coating Mike and Lauren" on Youtube. I think it costed them around $200...

If that's too expensive maybe someone can do if for you?

silkscreen print, etching, engraving, hand painting, stickers...
