Mug Swap

Join us for AIGA NWA Mug Swap! What exactly is a mug swap? It’s a fun way to connect with fellow creatives and swap a cool mug. It’s simple, click the sign up link to fill out a short questionnaire, and we’ll match you with another swapper. Then, find or make the perfect mug for your new friend and send it via snail mail. You will also receive a mug specially chosen for you from another local creative. Anyone is welcome to participate!
