    Many of you have seen customized coffee cups. I'm looking for a place where I can get a cup with my WW2\USAAF vet father a cup. I want one with at least an image of the USAAC\F Shoulder Insignia

    Even better if I can personalize it with his name, rank, branch of service, and service dates.

    We have a hat place in our mall, probably hundreds of others that can scan an image and sew up a cap on the spot. If you have the art work I'm sure they can supply the text.

    Also google to see if anyone has a site set up for the group. I have two ship sites that send out ads for cups/hats around Christmas. I'm sure such a site would share their source.

    Sams club / Costco both offer personalization service to lot of items.
    You might have to put the graphic and wordings into a picture.
    I am not a graphic designer or anything but I have played around plenty with it.
    I will be happy to help out with the graphic, just let me know!

    Got the graphic of the insignia. It's a JPEG scan of his discharge certificate. Cafe Press looks good and the price is right. But, it's not customizable. I need to see about Costco.

    Ended up at www.usamm.com. An 11 oz coffee cup came to 21.31 with shipping and handling.

    Checked out My Service Pride today. The site is now a dead one.
