Short and Tall Mugs
Ripped from Upload Screen
This template is simply the overlay shown when uploading a mug to Redbubble. The only markings on it are the lines between short mugs and tall mugs.
And then there’s Redbubble’s offical mug template, which includes the dimensions for each mug type. That can be downloaded from this Redbubble blog post.
My mug template was made to do several things that Redbubble’s template didn’t do.
- Allow easier centring of art
- Clearly show which side of the mug, and how much of that side, will show in product photos
The most crucial aspects of a mug template, at least for me, are to allow precise centering of your artwork, and to know exactly what part of the artwork will be visible in product photos. The old templates didn’t do this – but my ones do.I’ve drawn in a line so you can centre things manually, or in the .PSD version there are guides that your art can snap to.
My template has the side that shows in the main preview photo – the right side – clearly labelled with text and a blue tint.
The left side of the mug is tinted pink.
And the remaining area, not visible in left view or right view, is coloured in dark grey.
When you use this template, the images you see in the upload screen may not look centered. But they will be centred on the published product photos, so don’t worry.
Examples in Use
Using this template, I was able to make this Weeping Moon design mug have a interesting feature – drips would appear on the top and bottom edges of the tall mug, but not the short mug. What other creative things could you do with this template?
