Does anyone know of a way to remove the advertizer's logo imprint on a coffee cup? I have 2 cups, and love the base colors, but would like to get rid of the company logos on them. Would naval petroleum jelly work? I've tried a scratch pad, and citrus stain remover but no luck. Thanks for any ideas to try.
If the logos are under the glaze they will never come off.
We had several mugs with logos on them and we were able to remove them with nail-polish remover and some scrubbing. Hope that works for you, too.
I agree that they won't come off if they're under the glaze, but how about painting over the logos with a food safe paint? Worth a shot...
Or you could just make a fabric "wrap around" that just fits around the mug and obscures the logos...
Or you could make a virtue out of necessity and collect _only_ logo mugs. It would almost become a conversation starter that way!
You might contact a ceramic class. The teacher might have a decal you can put right over the logo and then fire it again to set the decal into the glaze. It's worth a try.
Soak it in clr for an hour, this scrape off with a razor. Works like magic.
I heard of 2 great ways: nail polish remover (if logo was printed on top of glaze, or glaze is ultra thin).
If glaze is over logo and a bit thicker, use a drimmel tool to sand off the glaze/ logo. :)
Use Paint stripper. sold at lowes
I receive a good number of promotional mugs and have found that scratching the logo off with the side of my letter opener does it just fine.
was this with the glaze on ?
We have several branded mugs, and the logos start to fading after a while, they are printed over the glaze, so I'm also going to try some nailpolish remove and paint stripper, as suggested. We have about 24 cups, so I'm also looking for a product that can remove the printed logos.
In some cases a dishwasher could also help, but it may take time. My cups has been hand washed at the office, for about 2 years now, and the logo's are fading so it does not take a lot to get some logo print off.
