Exciting Coffee Cups

By Connie Parker

Everyone always likes complimentary giveaways of just about any type. Anyone would be excited to see that someone is giving away free coffee cups. Your display will be king as all your clients and potential clients tell other clients where they got the coffee cups that they're carrying around, using them to hold all the other junk they got from the other guys. Who wants a key ring or a pen when they can get a coffee cup instead?

How Coffee Cups Are Better

Think back to when you used to go trick or treating, even if that was just last October. Liken key rings and calenders to the little orange and black candies that no one actually likes. Coffee cups are like the candy bars of promotional items. Remember all the kids telling each other where to get "the good stuff"? That's what clients will be doing, referring to your coffee cups. And when it comes to any type of promotional item, size is everything. You can't ignore something as big as a coffee cup, especially in comparison to flimsy pieces of plastic. There's no particular season or time period that people use or don't use coffee cups; they're just always around. People drink coffee, or something, in the winter, fall, spring, and summer. Calenders will last four seasons, but that's it. After those initial four seasons, they're landfill bound.

Use Coffee Cups As Gifts

During the Christmas season, coffee cups make especially good promotional gifts. Consider; coming in from a cold winter's night to a hot cup of coffee in a coffee mug with your company's logo on it. They're easy to pack and ship and, unlike shirts or other clothing with your company logo, coffee cups are one size fits all. Give someone a shirt that's too big, or even one that's too small, and you'll be wishing you went with the coffee cups.

Choosing Coffee Cups

What should you put on those coffee mugs, though? Just the logo, or something fancier and more involved? The first thing you want to think about is the type of material you're going to use.

Choosing a Material

There's plenty of different types to choose from with coffee cups being made out of everything from plastic to crockery. The end product should reflect your business's main purpose. For a company that wants to say "We're Powerful!", nothing beats metal cups. A company named Rose's Roses would look rather silly with their logo on a stark metal coffee cup. Rose would probably prefer ceramic since a ceramic cup would be a bit more affectionate and personal. As ceramic is used in arts and crafts, motherly types tend to be drawn toward it. Plastic cups will show that your business is off limits to no one; anyone can benefit from being your client, regardless of their financial power. - 31805
