Just finished these mugs for the USS Renegade (Youngstown Star Trek Club) to sell at the Steel City Comic Con this weekend. They aren’t quite as professional as those made commercially but they are handmade and hand-painted. The club is only permitted to sell things that we make ourselves and these definitely qualify. I hope that they sell, despite the fact that no Star Trek actors will be at the show this time.
- “TEA. EARL GREY. HOT.” Picard (includes an Earl Grey tea bag)
- “COFFEE FIRST!” Janeway (includes a coffee bag)
- SERIES MUG: The Original Series, Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine, Enterprise, The Animated Series, Discovery (starts in January)
- RAKTAJINO Klingon coffee mug (includes recipe–it’s a thick mocha coffee)
There were two more styles that didn’t turn out but may be salvageable for later. First is QUARK’S, a tall stein with the bar logo; Second is the 5oth Anniversary, a large mug in black satin glaze with spatters (stars) and the logo in gold.
We also had a large coffee mug similar to the one Kirk used in the new movie BEYOND which was given as a prize at our annual picnic on Tuesday. (forgot to take a picture)
Not a Trekkie? This gives you an idea of what you can do with plain mugs. Perhaps you like Star Wars, or Harry Potter. What a thoughtful gift for a family member with a certain passion. Also, when you make it yourself you can put the person’s name on the other side.
Where having Fun is why we come!
Live long and prosper!
P.S. Just a note on yesterday’s post:
Jim says he is definitely more than 17″ tall, more like 6′ LOL
