If you have just opened a new business and are looking for ways to promote it, you might like to consider promotional mugs. Mugs are available in several popular materials such as ceramic earthenware, bone china, plastic, glass and aluminum. Most people in the UK drink tea or coffee in the morning and during the work day so by giving your target customers promotional printed mugs there is a good chance you pick up some business. Think about it, your target customers will see your logo and details on a daily basis.
It is little wonder, therefore, that promotional mugs are such a popular promotional item. What you are trying to accomplish and who you are trying to target will feature strongly on which mugs style you choose. Following is a list of three things to contemplate when considering these very useful promotional items.
1.) Print area: Most mugs have a very large print area. In fact the majority can be printed around the entire circumference of the mug allowing you to print your logo and design in a brilliant, eye catching way! Before you choose the style you like, confirm with your promotional gift supplier that the print area on your chosen mug is large enough for your design.
2.) Material: Earthenware mugs are seen in offices around the UK most often. They are not expensive and great for drinking tea and coffee indoors and outdoors. If your customers travel a lot, you might like to send them one of the many popular metal travel mugs. Plastic and glass mugs are available in many different styles and are definitely worth looking in to. Bone china mugs are the top of the range, high quality and an excellent gift. The choice is yours.
3.) Shipping: How are you going to give the mugs to your customers? One negative truth about many mugs is that they break easily in the post. If you are considering sending breakable mugs through the post, please ensure that they are well protected or consider sending non-breakable mugs such as a plastic or aluminum travel mugs. If you have your heart set on one of the popular but breakable earthenware mugs, ask your promotional gifts supplier about the special padded box packaging that is available at additional cost for sending mugs through the -post. Breakable earthenware mugs and bone china mugs are best handed out at exhibitions or when possible handed to your customer at their office.
Please do not hesitate to contact your promotional gifts supplier about all of the types of corporate mugs available to promote your company. They should be more than happy to send you prices and samples of the different mugs that meet your individual requirements.
