Custom Mugs for College Bookstores

Sign up for a free catalog of our custom handmade logo mugs. Perfect for your College Bookstore!

Marketing a College Bookstore can be fun, and be a way for you to demonstrate your bookstores association with quality. Not only can parents have a mug to remind them of their kids, students can use them to stoke school spirit and are great for reminding your customers of your college bookstore.

  • Our customers love that our Handmade pottery mugs are made here smack dab in heart of the Midwest USA.
  •  We were stared back in 1972 – over 40 years ago!
  • Over 24 pairs of hands touch each mug through the production process.
  • Although amazingly uniform, no two mugs are exactly the same–each piece is as unique as your college bookstore.

Meet our Happy College Bookstore Customers


We love seeing the awesome photos of happy College Bookstore customers who show off their mugs on instagram and often share them with us because they are excited about them.

Maybe they love them because they are handmade in the USA, or perhaps it is a growing appreciation for  quality craftsmanship. If you run a college bookstore, we invite you to be part of this unique opportunity.

Deneen Pottery + College Bookstores = American Handmade Love


We’ll work with you to create something amazing. We’ve been family owned and operated for over 40 years! And in that time we’ve learned that customer service is important to our business, as we understand it is to your hub of school spirit.

Whether you’re trying to get the word out about your College Bookstore, or just offer another excellent product in your store, we believe that our Custom Logo Mugs for College Bookstores will help you do both. You don’t have to just take our word for it – here are some great comments from our customers.

“ So happy to have found you guys! ”

“You make such a great product! Your mugs are so durable, I love the fact that I don’t have to worry about our school seal wearing off because of a dishwasher. For a handmade mug the price isn’t outragous, and I am down to only 3 mugs from my first order my so they are selling very well!”

“ Handmade in the USA ”

I have to say that Deneen Pottery is just incredible to work with – great customer service and straight forward ordering with on time deliveries. The ‘Handmade in the USA’ is a great selling feature and the ability to do small batches of 24 with custom art for specific departments definitely make Deneen Pottery a wonderful partner. The craftsmanship and beauty of their work is just outstanding. We also enjoy sharing the story of their legacy as they are a second generation family business that was started right here in Minnesota over 40 years ago.

“ In a league of it's own ”

“I have a litmus test for new items; any item that sells right out of the box will be popular – and the Deneen Pottery mugs have done just that. Everyone has a mug, but they are all the same – what you produce is just so different and unique. The mugs that you have made for us truly stand alone because of their quality.”

Carleen Thurnblad, Carleton College

We're looking forward to connecting with you personally!
