Let's scroll down and make you the best boss by choosing the ideal custom tumblers for your remote employees.

How can Drinkware Encourage Team Work for your Employees working from home?

2020 will go in history as one of the most challenging years for the current workforce. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the workspace environment to our homes, and our ability to maintain work-life balance has been much more difficult. Our challenge now to find ways for people to thrive in their makeshift offices, find purpose in their work, and feel appreciated while they do it.

How to Find the Best Drinkware Option for Your Work from Home Team

A travel mug was the easiest choice when folks had to commute. When you start considering your options now, it is easy to get overwhelmed. To present you with an easier selection process we have created a simple checklist for you.
To create the ideal team member tumbler, let us narrow it down by focusing on the types of materials, colors, design, properties, size, and customization options.

Your Checklist should look something like this:

Drinkware Check List

1. Budget

Budget Ideas for Employee Bottles How much will you be spending on each option? Maybe it's $5, $10, $20, or over $30, the important thing is to start with a budget and stick to it.
Choose the number of items depending on the number of people. Keep in mind that the best number of items for your team is the actual number plus 5-10% extra. If you are purchasing for an event the same rule applies.

2. Types of materials

Best Materials for your Custom Drinkware Not all drinkware is made the same. We aim to find and feature only the best materials in traditional, environmental and innovative categories. Traditional materials include stainless steel, acrylic, plastic, copper, glass, and ceramic. In the Eco-friendly materials category, we have bamboo fiber while carbon fiber is one of the most innovative materials today.

3. Size(in oz):

Promotional Tumbler Sizes Finding the appropriate size of your drinkware item is crucial. Will this tumbler be used in the office, on the go, in the car or does it need to be versatile? We offer a variety of sizes listed in the chart above.

4. Design:

Top Features of Drinkware Gifts When it comes down to your selection, no other feature is as important as the design. You might consider whether the tumbler is double insulated, with or without a handle, does it contain an infuser, and does it require a straw. You might be looking into a specific lid design such as the double lid, spill proof lid, flip-top lid, push-on lid, or a simple push button lid. Also keep in mind the actual shape of the drinkware will determine first impressions. Will it be slim, tumbler, cup, jar, mug or an entirely unique shape?

6. Colors

Best Personalized Tumbler Colors When choosing the color of drinkware for your custom tumbler, consider your company logo or artwork you wish to add. Your brand might best be presented on a solid color tumbler, or one with a color accent, or perhaps on the classic stainless piece, which will be in style forever.

7. Customization

Top Tumbler Personalization options When it comes to the premise of how to make this particular mug/tumbler/bottle yours, the customization options are almost endless. Laser engraving seems to be the most popular choice as it is long-lasting and it adds subtle branding. If you are more into a colorful design, we can help your drinkware pop with the imprint method in any color and as many colors you prefer. Some drinkware items even offer full color imprint.
