It is no secret that I love my coffee. I also like personalized cups and have a few more than the average person (I cycle them through as water cups at work). After seeing a custom Starbucks cup on Pinterest, I knew that I needed to make myself my own personalized Starbucks cup.
Custom Starbucks Cup
I started with a clear acrylic tumbler and the logo SVG file from Cut by Connie. The font for the name is Aharoni. The Silhouette School Blog features a great tutorial on how to curve text. This is how you will fit your name into the shape. Size the shape to about 3.5″ in diameter.
When I was creating the shape, I found that it was helpful to color the design so that I could make sure that I removed all the unnecessary points. When I originally started working on the design, some of the shapes had extra lines (like the words – they were double outlined).
For the vinyl, I used the dark green from this assortment. Make sure that you use permanent vinyl so that it stays on even through the dishwasher.
I love how this cup turned out. It would work great on a hot coffee cup as well, but I have a bunch of the cold tumblers already. I’ve already taken it to work for the cup of the month (I keep making more cups and just cycle them through). What do you think? What would you put on a cup?
This post is provided for personal use only. It is no way affiliated with Starbucks. I had fun making this personalized Starbucks cup for myself and thought that some others would enjoy seeing it as well.
