Pimp out your Starbucks Travel Mug with an 痛ンブラー

30 Mar

Many of you are familiar with 痛車 (itasha), the cars that are decked out with anime decals. While most folks aren’t quite “hardcore” enough to turn their car into an itasha, most any anime fan can easily get away with pimping out their travel mug. Thus we have the 痛ンブラー (itanburaa) which is a combination of 痛 (ita) and タンブラー (tumbler). There’s lots of doujin tumblers and even officially licensed tumblers that you can get ahold of, but you can actually just bypass all that and get yourself a really great custom artwork insert for your clear tumbler by checking out the 痛ンブラー and タンブラー tags on pixiv. (The former will yield more results, but it’s worth it to check out both!)

Just in case you needed a reason to love Starbucks... (art by Easycrew)

I’ll get you started with some great designs I found while perusing the aforementioned tags!

Amazon.co.jp Box Design

12oz insert by King Kazuma

This faux Amazon.co.jp box design insert is by King Kazuma, who has quite a few really awesome tumbler designs, so you should check out his entire gallery. Among them are a fake Canon DSLR lens, some classy Starbucks designs, Burberry check pattern and a few really great Summer Wars inserts, to boot!

Looks pretty sweet, right?

NERV

I have to admit I’m pretty fond of this clever NERV design by fallthing. “M-2 Portable Drink Temperature Retainer”? Yes, please.

Penguin's Coffee

12oz insert by Hiropon

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a little bit obsessed with Mawaru Penguindrum right now. It probably helps that I’ve always loved penguins!

Starbucks Template

by Hazuki

Want to just design your own Starbucks logo? I’ll let you do that, too! This blank is by Hazuki.

If you can’t find what you want, it’s actually pretty easy to create your own insert. All you have to do is Google “Starbucks Tumbler Template” and you should be able to find a PSD or JPG file of whatever tumbler size you’re looking for. If you’re feeling lazy (and who can blame you if you haven’t had any coffee yet?), here’s an 8oz template, a 12oz template and a 16oz template that you can play around with. Doujin circle Chocolate Shop also has a tutorial on creating your tumbler here, and it includes a PSD template. (Psst, you can even get Choco’s own awesome tumbler designs here!)

Now that you’re armed and ready to go, whip up your own custom tumbler! When you’re done, I’d love to see photos of it, so feel free to post a comment with an image link or tweet me at @ladyriven! Have fun!
