05/09 Today its all about cups!

As the title suggests our blog today is all about cups.  We like cups!  They’re useful, really useful and these days everyone seems to be using them as a marketing tool.  From chain store coffee outlets, you know the ones that don’t cost-a-lot or offer the stars-for-a-buck, to a simple plastic number that has some space on it for a logo.  Well this got me thinking why?  Why would a company offer their product to be put on a cup?  I think the answer is straightforward.  We always have a drink on the go and even when you’ve finished it there is a retention value to reusable cups, so it makes sense to put your company logo on it and advertise yourself.

Our clients have told us they have really benefitted from having their company logo on a mug that their staff take off site with them or on the train for the morning and evening commute.  Many have seen the benefits of having this carry-round advertising billboard and have added them to their regular orders with us for their other promotional merchandising, not only for their staff to use but also as a giveaway gift for clients and customers.

That is why we have come up with three new styles to complement our existing range of travel cups.  In typical coffee shop style they are; the Americano, The Stadium Cup & The Smart Mug
