Mugs- the difference by trenchmaker Mugs- the difference by trenchmaker
I always wondered how the big mug looks like and what's the actual difference.

So next to the shape of course we're most interested in what fits in it. The measurements on DA are pretty close but if you tend to fill your mug to the brink (and complain later how to transport it) like I do:
It's around 350 and 460 ml.
For me it's really important to know the hard facts since I clock what I drink.

The handle of the smaller one is... normal whereas the big one has a huge handle. and I mean huge. I have normal hands *I think* and for me it took some time to get used to it. It's nice though since you avoid the nasty "skin on hot ceramic" problem when you microwave something in it. I have the handle problem with *real* Jumbo mugs- they normally sport a very tiny handly and I always burn my knuckles. Can't happen with those two above.

Big one is imo good for:
hot chocolate, tasty tea, latte (pumpkin latte.. unggg), soup (if not too thick), water, anything cold
If you tend to drink fast I'd say even normal coffee, otherwise: It might cool down before you reach the bottom.

I'm working on the very last manual illustrations for the very last board game this year. New fancy mug stuff when I'm done. I have some ideas I'd really love to do (and some of those would be even usefull *omg* ).

I hope the information is usefull for anybody. Sorry for the pic quality- the outside light is weird at the moment. We have mostly foggy blurred something and it's not cute at all.

Thanks for this! I dunno if you remember but I got one of your Bao mugs years ago for my mum, had to ask you to re-activate it as a print.. but she recently accidentally broke it. :( She was gutted, it was my dad who told me, so I'm about to purchase a replacement for her birthday! (and some treats for me!) I'd bought her the big one it seems! So long ago, I couldn't remember which!

Yes I remember and sadly the same thing happened to my precious japanese bunny mug some weeks ago and I was devasted because I couldn't find it anywhere. I am truely happy your mum loves the mug and it's really great you get her a new one.
I think you bought the small one last time. Imo the design fits better on the small one but if you're up for a lot of liquid in one mug the bigger one is more comfortable. I tend to drink up to 4 litres a day so the bigger the better. >_<

I can't believe you remember! :D
That's a shame :( I always feel so guilty if things break. :(
I didn't think I'd be able to tbh so REALLY pleased that you still have them up. It was the big one, I remember the big handle and the "oh gosh this is massive" comments. I think because of the delivery being so much I decided oh, I'll get the bigger size because it's not much more XD She uses it at work for a big cup of tea on her lunch (I dunno how she drinks it so quickly!) or for mug snacks! Or did till she bust it washing up.. :( Buuut hopefully the replacement will arrive in time for her birthday! Although it's being delivered to my parents as I move house next saturday! I also bought a few prints of you work for myself. :# My parents are bringing my wardrobe up to which one of your prints someone bought me from my wishlist is still stuck to it :3 All the stuff came to £2 more than the postage did.. so paid almost the same amount for postage! D: But it's worth it. :D I still have my chubbanimals calenders too even though they're out of date. :')

Ich habe heute meine geliebte Kulla Tasse aus versehen zerschmettert. ;_ ; bin am boden zerstört... Scheint sie nicht mehr bei Tokyopop zu geben. /schluchz.

Das sind doch DA-Tassen, oder? Sind die eigentlich Spühlmaschinenfest? @_@ Trau mich irgendwie nicht die bisher in die Maschine tu stecken und spühle alle meine Tassen bisher immer per Hand aber langsam wird es zu viel xDDD

da würde ich jetzt zurückfragen, was fürn Spülersalz ihr benutzt und bei wieviel Grad eure Maschine läuft ^^ Prinzipiell ja- abhängig vom Salz. Einige Sorten greifen die Beschichtung an, wie ich leider feststellen musste >_>

Bisher hatten wir so eine Billigmarke (Gut und Günstig) von Edeka benutzt und bei der Maschine haben wir meist mit Automatik gespühlt (55-65°), aber wir haben da auch noch andere Gänge mit 50° und 45°. Da kann man leicht umsteigen, denke ich :) damit hätte ich keine Probleme, solange die Tassen heil bleiben xD Dasselbe gilt auch bezüglich des Salzes. Das scheint eh nicht so gut zu sein, weil oft Ablagerungen bei Plastik bleiben ... zumindest vermuten wir das, weil da so kleine weiße Flecken bleiben @_@ Kannst du da eines empfehlen? ^^

Automatik sollte vollkommen okay sein von der Temperatur her. Zum Spülersalz:
Du müsstest schauen welches Wasserwerk ihr habt und von dort die Wasserhärte rausfinden. An eurem Spüler ist ein Regler, der ausgehend von der Härte eingestellt werden kann. Je nachdem wie ihr den Regler einstellt, wird dann Klarspüler zugeführt. Eventuell kommen daher die Flecken??? Nicht richtig eingestellt?

Timon meinte gerade Salz/Klarspüler sind an sich okay. Ansonsten verwenden wir Salz/Spüler von Lidl/DM. Spülertabs sind von DM- die sind prima und bei denen habe ich jetzt auch keinen Verlust gemerkt.

Ich hatte mal einen Billigdruck von einem Lokalanbieter, der sah schon vorher mies aus und wurde auch in der Spülmaschine fleckig. Aber da war die Beschichtung einfach Grütze. Das wichtigste ist, dass du die Tassen nicht in direktem Sonnenlicht lagerst. Das macht zumindest bei uns hier viel aus. Meine Kulla-Tasse hing immer schön in der Sonne und bums, war sie gelblich-rosa. Die Rotpigmente geben immer zuerst den Geist auf und ja, auch hier wars der Fall.

UFF, endlich mal Zeit die Messages zu beantworten x_x Tut mir leid, dass ich lang nichts geschrieben hab ;_;

Dankeschön für all die Tips bezüglich der Spühlmaschine!!! Wir werden schauen, was wie wo hier ist und werden uns dann trauen die Tassen auch in die Maschine zu tun ^^ Im übrigen scheint wohl das Salz alle zu sein mittlerweile und ... alles, was Plastik ist, hat keine Flecken mehr etc. oô Scheint wohl doch am Salz gelegen zu haben? ...Chaos xD

Ich finde die größere Tasse irgendwie hübscher von der Form her. Würde die vermutlich wählen, wenn du irgendwann ein Shiba-Inu-Motiv zur Auswahl hast. xD *gibt die Hoffnung nicht auf* Hab nen Tassensammeltick, den ich seit einiger Zeit erfolgreich unterdrücke, aber für dich würd ich ne Ausnahme machen. :D

Unter "groß" hätte ich mir jetzt eher 500ml vorgestellt o.o oder eben mehr Ô_O' Aber ansonsten gefällt mir die Tasse vom Optischen her.

Die Spiele sind seit heute offiziell "durch" insofern jetzt nicht noch irgendwelche Änderungswünsche kommen. Ich hab die letzten Tage an Anleitungsbildern, Layout-Finetuning und Illus für die Anleitungen rumgepopelt. Theoretisch muss ich jetzt "nur" noch 4 Logos machen und dann iss gut. Und dann hab ich auch erstmal die Nase voll.

Aber ich hab bis zum 4.12. wohl keine wirkliche Zeit wegen Arbeit und Uni >_<
3 Referate, eine Schnittkonstruktion + fertiges Prototypkleid, 1 Protokoll und dann noch ein Fragment für eine Bluse. Ab Dezember kann ich dir genauer sagen, wann ich Zeit hätte, da ich dann auch meinen neuen Arbeitsplan für Dez haben werde!
Die Logos schaffst du sicher total fix :) Und dann ist das Jahr ja auch fast vorbei! Erholung! :meow:

Actually those won't fade that fast (same product, different, local company). I know the problem you mention with the ones I have from DA when they still came from Thailand ( ??? O_o;...).
As long as they have an orca coating the should easily survive at least one year. Otherwise you should check what type of dishwasher salt you use. It might be overly aggressive. That's what we found out when we switched the salt.
I think you can't expect anything with life-time quality since that can only be provided with direct printing/off-set and... that's practically impossible on demand.

We bought some last year and they doesn't seem to have faded. And we washed them both by hand and in the diswasher throughout the year. Personally, I think the water being used for washing them is influencing the washing process, but I don't know enough about it to be sure. In anycase, handwashing those is probably the best idea if you really really love your cup :)

Hm... I uploaded the option but since the template isn't that good in height the frog got cropped out. I have no additional space in width in the illustration since it was made for the square format. I hope the compromise is good. It's either really small or all the way around with a part of the whole thing. *scratches head*
