Custom Tervis Tumbler DIY. Yesterday I shared an Amazing Shake Recipe in custom Tervis Tumblers. Within a few minutes of sharing the recipe images on social media, I had messages asking how I made custom Tervis Tumblers. It is so simple!
My son wanted to use his own pictures of himself and his sweetie, and we could have simply uploaded them to Tervis.com and used any of there many pre-made designs. But, my son is an artist and wanted the cups to be a little more custom.
We took the photos he liked, and opened them in Photoshop. Then, we created a text or a shape layer. I used a comic style font for the text, and a heart shape for the shape layer. Next, I made a clipping mask. There are lots of great tutorials (This is one of the ones I referred to while working on the images) online for this, but I did take a few screen shots of the process. I saved the image for the web as a PNG file, and uploaded it to the Tervis.com site.
Tervis offers so many different customization options, so, picking just one was nearly impossible! My son liked the wood grain looking background with red hearts. We chose not to add text to this cup design, just hearts with pictures of my son, his girlfriend, and the two of them together. I made the hearts the same way I made the text images in PS.
For the second cup, we chose the pink heart background. I uploaded each text image to the cup design and moved them around until I liked their placement.
I added a few cup lids, and finished up my order. In about a week I had two awesome custom cups, perfect for anyone!
Add an amazing milkshake and you have one pretty awesome gift!
