Branded travel mug

An effective way to increase the visibility of your brand is to print the logo on a personalized thermal mug. A thermal mug is a heat insulating container with or without a handle. Due to the heat-insulating component materials, this container can keep the temperature of the interior liquid constant for a long time.

SHORT HISTORY OF THE TRAVEL MUG

The travel mug (thermos or thermal mug) is a modern object, although the travel mug was invented in 1892 by the Scottish chemist James Dewar, called vacuum flask. The thermos came later, in 1904, when two German manufactures noticed that Dewar’s container could keep the temperature constant inside. Discovering its commercial opportunities, he renamed it “thermos” and made it accessible to everyone by selling it as a household item.

In 1909, the Germans gave up their trademark rights to three independent companies in New York, Tottenham, and Montreal. They all had the name Thermos. Shortly after, the travel mug has become a very sought after product, especially after being used in various famous expeditions of the time. The thermos reached the South Pole, in Africa, on the Wright Brothers` plane and even in Count Zeppelin’s balloon.

Today’s modern look, ease of personalization and proven utility make the customized thermal mug a highly requested promotional product regardless of business. Thermos / thermal mug name was generalized beyond the products of the three starting companies.

We can differentiate a thermos as referring to thermal mugs with capacities below 1 liter.

At work, at home or while traveling, customers will remember your company thanks to this useful customizable object.

BRANDED THERMAL MUG – HOW TO CHOOSE IT?

The insulating capacity of a thermal mug is the first characteristic feature you need to keep in mind.

You can choose a mug with vacuum insulation technology, technology capable of keeping heat for 2 hours and low temperature between 4-12 hours. You can also select double-wall models with a heat insulating material.

The cup`s material: the interior is recommended to be of glass or stainless steel. These materials, besides resistance, are better suited to keeping food content.

Capacity/volume – here the choice is according to your needs. Existing capacities can vary from 200 ml up to 1.5 l. It would help to keep in mind that insulating materials and double walls will increase the weight of the object compared to a cup or a single wall bottle. The larger the volume of the liquid, the higher the weight of the product will grow exponentially.

The accessories of a customized thermos are also significant. The thermos can have a pouch with a strap to facilitate transport. The design of a thermos can also include a lid with a cup function.

Design is an essential element in choosing a thermal mug. Variants are multiple, with or without handle, with additional silicone lid or grip, anti-slip coating on the bottom, etc.

Even if it’s a common object, a personalized thermos can attract more with a spectacular design. On the market of promotional products, there are enough models to draw your attention, for any budget level. Let’s not forget that the designs are always improved due to the tendency to have the most ergonomic objects, so be constantly aware of the latest developments in the field.

More and more often, companies’ demands on thermal mug models are focused on products made from materials not only certified for their use in food, but also from environmentally friendly materials.

Various functionalities are increasingly sought after for this kind of promotional items. Anti-drip, anti-condensation, anti-slip function or grip for easy handling, here are just a few of the most important. The possibility of cleaning it in the dishwasher is relevant, but if you want to preserve the properties of the component materials, we recommend the models that require manual washing.

Budget is also necessary for choosing the suitable products for your marketing campaign. The cost is higher for a quality thermos with vacuum insulation technology and the guarantee of keeping the temperature within a specified time range. There are also medium-cost alternatives with high quality and certified materials.

PERSONALIZATION METHODS

For a thermal mug, personalization depends on the mug`s outside material. The most used technique is laser engraving because the outer material is frequently metallic. Another new customization is to create a luminous logo with the engraving, which generates a special effect.

Personalization can also be done by pad printing, in a specific available number of colors. An interesting method of customization is doming. This technique can be used by customizing the thermal mug lid, depending on its material.

Another customization is by making a digital label applied to the lid or body of the thermal mug.
