The Ubiquitous Custom Coffee Travel Mug

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Promotional Travel Mugs–Including the Best Ones to Put Your Name On

Custom coffee travel mugs are the norm in every car, truck, classroom, and conference room. These days, most sport a logo of some sort (could be yours) and the latest in colors, temperature control, and easy-access lids. Bulk travel coffee mugs are often used to celebrate new customers and special events, offered as a gift with purchase, or as a fundraising incentive. New employees and students love a promotional travel mug as they start a new job or new semester.

What Is a Travel Mug?

Travel mugs are usually metal, and most often designed to keep hot beverages, like coffee and tea, covered and at temperature while you go about your day. A tumbler, on the other hand, tends to focus as much on cold drinks as hot, and is made of plastic as often as metal, and may have a lid, no lid, and sometimes a straw. A travel mug might have a handle, whereas a tumbler won’t. Often the terms “travel mugs” and “tumblers” are used interchangeably.

When you’re looking to put your name on a bulk travel coffee mug, you’re most likely on the lookout for good quality, good price, and a trendy aesthetic that’ll keep your customers filling and refilling your promotional travel mug, ensuring your name stays in hand, top of mind, and visible to a large audience.
