Promotional mugs are the second most popular promotional gift available in the UK. They are only second to promotional pens. If you are thinking of using promotional mugs to promote your brand, it is a good idea to know what is available to you. In this article I will show you 5 mugs that are popular in the UK for promoting your business.
1.) Plastic mugs are a relatively new addition to the promotional gift industry. They are available in many different colours and styles. Plastic promotional mugs are light weight and last a long time. The print life is slightly shorter than that of ceramic earthenware mugs because they are not fire cured but they should still last a long time. Logo printed plastic mugs are perfect for outdoor promotions and organizations.
2.) Promotional earthenware mugs are the most popular mug on the market. These are available in many different fashionable styles and colours. At CompuGift we would be happy to send you samples of the most popular styles available such as the new etched mugs and latte mugs. Have your logo etched into the side of a mug and it will stay there for the lifetime of the mug. The print life for screen printed mugs is long and will last much longer if they are washed by hand as they often are in offices. Logo printed earthenware mugs are very versatile and can be Pantone colour matched, screen printed and even printed in full colour.
3.) China mugs are available to those who want something a little more classy than the standard earthenware mug. When you purchase promotional china mugs, you do not have as large of a colour selection and the shapes are limited but they feel like the top quality mug they are. Normally, china mugs are screen printed but they can also be etched and even photo printed.
4.) Glass mugs look a lot like the plastic mugs and are also available in quite a few different colours. They are normally transparent and work fantastic as promotional tools. They are much heavier that the plastic mugs and should definitely be considered if you like the look of the plastic mugs but want something a little more substantial.
5.) The useful travel mug is definitely becoming more popular. Promotional travel mugs are usually made out of aluminum with a plastic non-spill lid. They are perfect for drinking your morning coffee or tea in the car, train or tube. The aluminum base and plastic inner helps keep the drink hot while the non-spill lid helps ensure you arrive to work in the same state you were when you left the house.
