The Good: Convenient drink-through lid, spacious 14 oz. capacity.
The Bad: Not dishwasher or microwave safe, only available with black lid/handle.
The Bottom Line: Great for employees and students that commute, the customized Stainless Steel Trip Mug is a fantastic and economical way to promote your logo.
Design (9.5/10): (top)
The personalized Stainless Steel Trip Mug has a design that’s practical and stylish, which gives it a wide appeal. The curvy body allows the bottom to fit into a standard cup holder without sacrificing capacity. The imprint is crisp and clear on the side of the travel mug, and even thin lines reproduce very well. Scratching against it with a fingernail won’t even chip it slightly. The item has multiple uses, most obviously as a travel mug but can also hold other promotional items for distribution at trade shows, conventions, and grand openings.
Features (8/10): (top)
Benefits of the imprinted Stainless Steel Trip Mug include a drink-through lid which provides coverage of the mouth of the mug while still allowing you to sip your morning coffee and a foam non-skid bottom so you won’t scrape up your desk. When half-full or more, heavy sloshing will cause liquid to spill out the top. Basically, don’t fill this thing with scalding hot coffee and then run a marathon. A few drawbacks include the fact that the Stainless Steel Trip Mug is not safe for either the microwave or the dishwasher, which adds a little extra work for warming beverages in the container or washing it. Also, the unit is only available in stainless steel with a black lid and handle.
Price (9/10): (top)
In terms of pricing, the Stainless Steel Trip Mug ranks in the lower end, but it still comes out on top in terms of quality. While they only cost a few dollars each, that can add up quickly when you have a wide base of customers or potential clients. But if you choose the recipients carefully, you should have no problem bringing the Stainless Steel Trip Mug to the doorsteps that matter most.
Because the Stainless Steel Trip Mug is a daily use item and not just decorative, it’s much more likely to be seen by a wide audience. Although it probably doesn’t have a strong appeal to children, it will appeal to most other clients. Even child focused campaigns can succeed if they appeal to thirsty parents. Overall, this item can bring a lot of attention to your logo.
