Print it out on plain paper or with plain background and black & white text first to check the fit. Then print out using water slide decal paper using the clear paper for white mugs and white paper for colored mugs.  To keep the ink from running, spray the picture with fixative spray, following the manufacturer’s directions. Let dry thoroughly, then cut out the picture, submerge it in water until the paper curls up, and the decal lifts off. Place the decal on the mug, blot it lightly with a cloth or paper towel and let it dry. It is finished now, but to make it last longer & be dishwasher safe, you can seal it with a craft resin, found at most Craft shops.
