Why Promotional Coffee Mugs Are Popular GiftsThese days, coffee-drinking is “hot” – pun intended – since it is both a societal trend and it offers a hot beverage to soothe stress. With the proliferation of gourmet coffee shops, hot coffee drinks such as lattes as well as iced coffee drinks are even making their way onto the menu boards of fast-food restaurants and bakeries.
Perhaps one reason why coffee is so popular today is that workers seem to have more work to do than ever given the workforce reductions companies have undertaken in the last several years as a result of the recession and globalization. People need a way to recharge and re-energize – and coffee seems to be fitting the bill.
So what better way to take advantage of this trend than to offer promotional coffee mugs to customers and employees? Not only will they appreciate your giving them a free coffee mug, you will enjoy multiple advertising impressions every time customers and employees use your custom coffee mugs in front of others.
Custom Coffee Mugs Offer Years of Impressions
Imprinted with your company logo and contact details, these custom coffee mugs make
the perfect promotional medium that is both effective for your company and useful for the receiver. The imprint area on a coffee mug is fairly large – offering a nice-size in which to imprint your company/organization logo and even a campaign message or cause call-to-action.
Consider also that a custom ceramic coffee mug offers permanency. Since it is so durable, its lifespan covers years, even decades, offering countless advertising impressions every time it is used. People collect coffee mugs as keepsakes and memorabilia of previous experiences in which they participated. For this reason, people handle custom coffee mugs with care – to preserve their memories associated with the mug.
Personalized Mugs Have Many Uses For the Office and Home
Aside from the obvious use for customized coffee mugs – drinking coffee – there are many other uses for personalized coffee mugs. You will often see employees using custom coffee mugs as holders for office accessories such as pens, paper clips and scissors.
You can also use personalized coffee mugs as planters for seedlings and candle holders for tea candles and other smaller-size candles.
Promotional mugs are a great way to package a variety of components for kits – such as a “get well” kit (including a thermometer, packet of instant chicken soup and mini-pack of facial tissues) or a “new hire” kit (including pens, sticky notes or note pad, and a business card holder).
The uses for promotional mugs are only limited by your creativity!
