My husband is using the cups daily. I have washed them a couple of times already and the print has stayed on and cups look good . Yes the are a not a hard plastic but if you care careful with them they will last for a while.
Amazon didn't have dessert plates for the theme I wanted for my baby shower but luckily partydecorations.com did! Haven't used them yet but they look like they'll hold up for what they're for!
Second year in the row I purchased these for a fall harvest party, along with the matching plates and cocktail napkins. Great quality, beautiful design and prompt service!
