“A great coffee mug with high quality printing“
Hey gang – Joe Robert here! Excited to bring you this review of the “Panoramic Mug” from SPOD!
*Note – we did not pay for this item, it was sent free of charge for us to review!
Ninja Star Ratings are based on 5 key categories defining an items quality and perceived value.
- Shipping/Fulfillment Time
- Design/Product Match
Check out SPOD and get more information on their website here.
Price: 4/5 Ninja Stars
Panoramic Mug: $7.69
We did some research and found other mugs similar to this from other suppliers that were cheaper, and we also found some that were more expensive.
For that reason we gave 4/5 Ninja Stars as a rating for this product for it’s pricing.
Shipping/Fulfillment Time: 5/5 Ninja Stars
Shipping for this item is $4.50 and including production time it took us only 3 days to receive it.
As with most products from SPOD they arrive super fast. We received it in 3 days.
They even state on their website that they’ve got the fastest turnaround time in the industry.
When it comes to print on demand items your profit margin and ability to offer free shipping is super important.
With shipping costs of almost $5, your all in cost for this mug is $12.19. You will need to charge your customers shipping to make this item profitable for you.
That means at my recommended retail price of $17.95 plus shipping of $4.50 your customers will be paying about $22 total for this mug.
While I think the shipping price is high I could not justify not giving them a 5/5 Ninja Star rating on the shipping due to the incredible speed in which I received the item.
Design/Product Match: 5/5 Ninja Stars
Upside: The template for this product was easy to use and the free design elements within the product creation tool are great!
SPOD has a fully customizable product creation tool. They even have tons of artwork you can add to the mug and you can even add custom text right inside of the app.
This is a game changer for those who do not have access to design software or who are not designers by nature. The possibilities you could have with this mug in terms of customization are endless.
I thought this was super unique and something that I haven’t seen replicated to this level before. Printful has something similar but it is not nearly as advanced as this tool found on the SPOD app.
Quality: 5/5 Ninja Stars
The mug has a great weight to it – which is good because sometimes print on demand mugs feel cheap.
This mug does not feel cheap – it feels like a premium mug that will make your customers happy.
Mockups: 1/5 Ninja Stars
I played around with the app and used some of the free design elements available inside of the SPOD app.
While this is super cool that they have tons of ways for you to create your own mug right inside of the app – the mockups are lackluster.
Shown to the side is the mockup that generates for your item. While it does represent what the mug will look like by showing the panoramic print of the mug – it is likely to raise some questions from buyers.
For this reason we gave them 1/5 stars for this category.
4 Ninja Stars
Upside: Awesome product and feels like a premium mug. The print quality is awesome and the fact that you can use some of the custom features right inside the app is a definite plus for people who don’t have access to design software to make their own products.
Downside: This product lost points in two categories. The first was price, and the second was mockups. The price is okay for a mug of this quality and is somewhat better than some apps and somewhat worse than others.
Additionally, they lost points for the lack of mockups available to you. They only have one and it doesn’t do a great job at showing the product.
