The 20 Best Free Designs You Can Use on This Mug

A mug is a classic giveaway item, whether as an employee welcome present, trade show freebie, or customer appreciation gift. And if you want to get your brand out there in vibrant full color—or commemorate a special season or event—our Design Wrap 11 oz. Ceramic Mug could be the perfect swag solution for you. 

What is Design Wrap?

“Design wrap” means that your chosen design wraps around the whole mug for maximum visibility, with a dedicated area for your custom logo, business name, and contact information. Many promotional coffee cups typically feature your design just on the front, so design wrap is a more vibrant, eye-catching option.  

Ready to start designing? Read on to discover the best free options for this design wrap mug, organized by these categories: 

  • New & Trending
  • Thank You Messages
  • Holidays & Special Occasions
  • Industry-Specific
  • Nature-Inspired
