Decorating Plastic Mugs

I bought some 32 oz. plastic travel mugs with the intent of decorating them. But I am coming to realize they may be difficult to decorate. Can anybody reccomend a painting technique that would be dishwasher durable or other craft technique that would be dishwasher durable that I could use to decorate them? I am not hugely artistic, but could do rudimentary stencils or lettering. The ability to apply paper art with a clear plastic/polyurethane covering would be fabulous.

You could use Sharpie Permanent Markers to write names, draw school mascots or inspirational quotes on the mugs. Sharpies come in a rainbow of colors now, so that should boost the creativity level.

Did you use "oil based sharpies?" The regular ones won't work.
