SKU: orcacoateddurham Category:

Orca Coated Durham Style 10 oz* Blank Mugs for Dye Sublimation Printing. Dishwasher Proof. Case of 36 Mugs.

Please Note: Price Increase.

The current container shortage has (hopefully temporarily) significantly increased the costs of these mugs and many other products.  The increased price is purely a reflection of our new cost price of the mugs, and we’re hopeful that the price will drop down again in the not too distant future.

Delivery just £3.48 per case! (When purchased in multiples of 2).

Please Note – we now supply the “plain” Orca Durham mugs. It is the exact same mug, and the exact same coating, but without the Orca stamp on the bottom.  

We have been using and supplying the Orca coated Durham mugs for several years.

The coating is a high quality dishwasher proof coating, the ceramic is white & the mug has a high quality gloss finish.

The edges are about as perfectly straight as you’re going to get with a ceramic mug (if you put a ruler to the edge of the mug you’ll see that the difference between the top and bottom is around 0.5mm which is very good), and there is not a tapering off at the bottom of the mug that you will see with some blank mugs.

Delivery (mainland UK) is £6.95 + VAT per 2 cases of mugs, for next working day delivery, within mainland UK. So when ordering in multiples of 2, this works out at just £3.48 per case. Please see the delivery info page for delivery pricing outside of mainland UK.

*10oz or 11oz?

What is classed as a 10z or 11oz mug is a bit of a grey area, and we recommend that you actually go by the dimensions rather than the capacity.

Going back several years, popular UK made mugs, namely the Tams Durham mugs (which were a very popular blank dye sublimation mug throughout the 90s and into the early noughties) were what most people regarded as a 10 ounce mug, and at the time blank mugs being imported into the UK were often a few mm taller and slightly wider, and this is what was initially classed as 11oz. So printers seeking a smaller more British looking Durham mug after the demise of the Tams mug, would seek “10 oz” mugs rather than the taller and slightly wider “11 oz” mugs.

These mugs are very similar in dimension to the Tams Durham mugs, and for that reason they’re better regarded as 10oz, but the actual capacity of the mug would depend on exactly where you measure up to, and there is no EU guidance (that we have been able to find) which provides this information, so we cannot state exactly what capacity the mugs arel. For this reason we recommend that you look at the height and diameter of the mug rather than capacity.

Damages in Transit:

Please note, it is the customer’s responsibility to check the goods for breakages at the time of delivery.  If there are breakages, you need to tell the driver that you would like for the goods to be signed for as damaged. You will not be able to sign for them yourself as damaged, but you can tell the courier to mark them as damaged when signing for them. 

If the driver will not wait while you check, we would advise that you ask the driver to sign for the goods as “unchecked”.

If you allow the driver to leave without telling them to mark the goods as unchecked or damaged, and you later find breakages – we are unable to refund or replace broken goods.

Also, if there are damages, as well as being signed for as damaged or unchecked, we must be notified within 48 hours. 

Please note that if the above isn’t done, we cannot refund for breakages, as we cannot put a claim in with the courier.

We’re trying to make this as clear as possible, as we’re occasionally being asked to refund for a small number of damages (often one or two mugs on the bottom row) several days, weeks or even months after delivery, for goods that have been signed for as received in good condition. 

This information is also on the delivery info page, but we’re putting it here on the product page to ensure that customers are aware of this policy re breakages.
