Hi guys.

My mums birthday is coming up and I thought this year instead of buying a mug from a store, I would take a picture of our pets and put it on a mug.

I came across Vistaprint, which I think allows me to do this, however was wondering if other people have any history buying from them, or anybody else. What was your experience like?

Thanks!

I bought some business cards from them once and had no complaints.

If you've got a bit of time they often have discount promotions.  You should also be able to find a local copy or photographic shop that does this if you prefer to see the final result before you pay.

Ordered business cards and flyers from them. No complaints on quality but:
- Their website is a bit clunky and I somehow ended up with a previous version of my business card (still not sure to this day if I messed up or they did)
- Goods take a while to arrive (I think they come over from OZ)

Apart from that, pretty hard to beat them on price, I think

There's a few options:

Vistaprint (as you mentioned) 
Snapfish  (currently have a sale on)

Diamond Photo same sort of thing

Photobox

Lots of options

There are almost always specials on these at at least one online retailer, especially via the online deal websites. For example,  there's currently a deal for mugs from Diamond Photo on Grabone (2 for $17) - see http://new.grabone.co.nz/services/photography-service/p/diamond-photo-3900  (They also offer a creepy version whereby the image appears only when there's something hot in the mug!)

We've used a similar voucher deal from Diamond Photo in the past - the mug's are actually ok quality, and have stood up to frequent use by our two boys. At that time we were limited to only using the iOS (or Android?) app to order which was pretty basic in terms of controls, so I had to do any image alterations, text etc in an imaging program before uploading it. It doesn't look like there are such limiations on this now (plus now the image can wrap around the whole cup, whereas we were limited to the same image replicated on both sides).

Alright guys, help me out here with Snapfish.

Im creating a collage mug, pictures of a cat.

Anyway, I uploaded some images, decided I would edit them first to get rid of the background stuff. Now I cannot delete the originals, nor can I add more photos or another album.

I know I need glasses, but I cant find any option that says "add album" "Uploads pictures" etc etc

Im stuck with the original 5 I uploaded currently.

Edit: NVM. There it is right there on the home page. Found it odd they didnt have the option to upload more images when you are creating your own masterpiece.
