    Award Winning Family Business

Over 40 years printing and decorating bespoke products

Our designs are screen printed and the transfers applied by hand before being fired in traditional kilns in Scotland. This gives a much better quality and finish than digital printing.

About our Mugs

Our designs are screen printed and the transfers applied by hand before being fired in traditional kilns in Scotland. This gives a much better quality and finish than digital printing and the sublimation process of decorating mugs. The mugs are packed straight off the kiln and despatched to you. Although we can supply mugs that are manufactured in the UK most are bought in from India and China. We are satisfied with the ethical and environmental audit reports of overseas factories.

Open Our Size Guide Tea pots, jugs and other ware are also available

Timing

Time to delivery is approximately 6-8 weeks from confirmation of order. Depending on circumstances we can usually offer a faster service.

Design and sampling charges

Prices for any design we do in-house and printed samples will be quoted on sight of artwork. mock ups are supplied free of charge.

Care and use of Mclaggan Smith mugs

Due to Health Regulations, lead has been removed from ceramic glazes and our mugs are now more liable to staining. Mugs should be rinsed shortly after use and any stains should be removed with a weak solution of bleach. Some colours are susceptible to fading with repeated dishwasher use.

Prices for any design we do in-house and printed samples will be quoted on sight of artwork. mock ups are supplied free of charge.
