We’ve been providing you with our customized stoneware mugs and steins for 20 years this year. Now though, we’re taking our connection with you to the next level through Sunset Hill Stoneware’s online store.
Our online store allows you to order mugs for yourself and your friends and family—finally! We have several mugs in our latest glaze colors available in the store to commemorate our 20th anniversary, but that’s only the beginning of what you’ll find on tap in this convenient webstore. Here’s a look at what Sunset Hill Stoneware’s webstore will have to offer, plus a look at what it took for us to get the site up and running.
Process of Reopening the Online Store
The reopening of our online store went off without a hitch. Everything was working perfectly from the moment the store went live.
Or, at least, we wish we could say that.
In reality, there were a lot of adjustments we had to make after the online store made its big debut. A few issues arose with our shipping calculator—among other things, it was incorrectly charging anyone who tried to order multiple mugs.
It took a few rounds of repairs from our IT department, but we finally resolved all of our shipping troubles and compensated anyone who had problems with the calculator. Now, the ordering process should go smoothly whenever you order from Sunset Hill Stoneware’s online store.
There were other issues early on, too—everybody loves closeups, but few people want to see photos of their mugs magnified 1,000 times.
As anyone in web development can attest, major website changes like these rarely go smoothly. But, we’ve resolved any issues we had with our website, and you should be able to order any of your favorite mugs or mug packs without difficulties from now on.
Limited Edition Logo Mugs
We’ve brought back some customer favorites that can only be found on our online store. This summer, members of Packers Nation will be delighted to learn that the football-shaped mug featuring Vince Lombardi on the front medallion is available. It makes a great kickoff to the morning on game day. But, that’s just the beginning. In the future, we’ll have even more limited edition runs that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
One of those pieces is already coming soon. In a matter of weeks, we will be offering a spooky special edition mug with the famous Buffalo Nickel. Only 100 of these mugs are available, so watch our online store for updates on when you can get this piece straight from the minds at Sunset Hill Stoneware.
We made these products available on our web store because we’ve been listening. You’ve been asking for individually sold mugs. While being able to customize individual mugs with your artwork is still a ways away, these are just a taste of what we have to offer. Now, you can start your morning with a custom coffee mug straight from Sunset Hill Stoneware. There is a handful styles currently available on our website as individual orders, with more to come in the future so you can find a unique mug or stein to support your favorite glaze color or cause.
Buying Mugs by the Dozen
Looking to buy mugs for your family reunion or as a thank-you gift for your team at work? Sunset Hill Stoneware’s online store now has you covered. We have 12 packs in three unique styles—the Potbelly, Wide Mouth and Renaissance Voyager—and four of our most popular glaze colors. These packs let you and the people you care about celebrate any occasion with handmade style that will last for decades.
These packages can come with your custom artwork or logo thanks to our graphic design team. Or, if you don’t have your own artwork yet, we’ll be happy to design graphics for you!
Offering small batches of promotional mugs on our website felt like the perfect way for us to celebrate 20 years of creating handcrafted pottery. We’re one of the only potteries in the industry offering 12-packs in our online store in addition to our pre-designed options, which allows you to have your custom designs on high-quality mugs without having to order twice as many as you may need.
Groomsmen Gifts and More to Come
After our anniversary celebrations draw to a close, we’ll still have new exclusive products for our online store.
Coming soon, we’ll also offer mug sets with wedding stock art. Since the mugs have pre-made art of your choice on the medallion, you won’t pay as much to commemorate your special day. These sleek mugs with your wedding dates and you and your spouse’s names make perfect groomsmen gifts or mementos for the bride and groom’s families.
If you love our stoneware mugs and want individual mugs for yourself without custom artwork or medallions, you’ll soon be able to order those from our online store, too. You’ll still feel the same quality as soon as the mug is in your hands, but at a more affordable price.
The Sunset Hill Stoneware online store is perfect for mug collectors, craft brewers looking to supply beer in custom nanobrewery mugs or small-batch roasters looking for promotional coffee mugs and everyone in between. All of these new products will be announced through our blog, email announcements and social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.
