I make left and right handed mugs by
canting the handle. Most commercially
made mugs are 'neutral' but decorations
outside presuming the mug is held
in the right hand.

I don't think there's anything 'right'
is.

Hi Terrance,

The image would have to appear on both sides of the Mug, in order to
anticipate the possibility of either a left handed or right handed person
holding it.

I am right handed, and, I also often hold a Mug in my left Hand, which if
any guide, helps complicate matters.

So, it is not easy to resolve, whether the image is for the person drinking=
,
or, for others who may be present.

A text which says "Stop staring at my MUG!" might be one to consider, in
order to help train people not to be looking at the image or text at all,
which would resolve the matter even better.

One nice thing about a lowish wideish Tumbler, or, a Mug of sorts which has
no Handle, is the manner of it being held, is with one's fingers and thumb
wrapped around it, covering any image or text fairly well.

These could say "Do not cover me with your Fingers please", but, we do not
know if anyone would bother reading it...especially once holding it.

Hey Terrance,

As far as my experience making Braille mugs is concerned, mugs which
feature Braille and raised letters, I find that people like the image to be
facing THEM when they use it.

take care
