A Durham Mug template size is 22cm x 9cm (approx).  Manufacturers of mugs vary the sizes slighly, but if you create a template at this size and the printing requires that the size is adjusted, it will only be slightly and un-noticeable.

22cm at the standard screen resolution of 72dpi is 625 pixels
9cm at the standard screen resolution of 72dpi is 255 pixels


So your image will need to be: 625 x 255 pixels

If you would like to make your template a much higher resolution use multiples of the ratio to make the image larger.  This way the image stays in propotion when the printer makes it fit the Mug.
1250 x 510 pixels
2500 x 1020 pixels

Open Microsoft Paint and click file>new or press (Ctrl+N)

Now select  Resize from the toolbar and a popup window will appear called "Resize and Skew".

Select the radio button for pixels.

De-select Maintain Aspect Ratio.

In the Horizontal box type:  625
In the vertical box type:  255

Click OK


Now you have a blank canvas or template the correct size for creating your mug design.

Its all too common these days (2017) to want to use images that have been profile images on social media websites such as Facebook.  Have you noticed though that most phones are rectangle and social media images are square?

We have experienced over the years and it still happens a lot, customers who choose to use an image that is not suitable for a phone case. 

There are many reasons:

  • They just like the image.
  • Square / rectangle - whats the difference?
  • OMG , I've gotta have this image!

Problem images:

You want to send a high quality image from your high end device that takes high end images, so why is it so awkward to do?

For some reason Apple seem to make this fairly difficult to do on most of its devices, fortunatelly Apple seem to be "sort of" listening to its users and making it a bit easier with the latest devices.

We here at Giftphoto do not understand why the phone has got a good camera at all if it is so difficult to share the original image?  We mean, uploading to facebook reduces the size of the original, sneding emails by default reduces the size of the original and so does other methods of sharing.

On the latest devices their is either a popup just before you are ready to send the email or on the bottom right there is a select option that pops up the option.


On older devices the method is still not difficult but its a few more steps.

  1. Go to your Gallery.
  2. Select the image you want to send by holding your finger on it until the copy option pops up.
    To select more images just tap the next ones.
  3. Select copy.
  4. Press the Home button.
  5. Open the email App.
  6. Press your finger on the blank area until the paste option pops up.
  7. Select paste.
  8. Fill in the rest of the email and send.
