It's a truth universally acknowledged that - and we're not sure if we're quoting Jane Austen word-for-word here - you can't go wrong with a good mug.
Total Merchandise has a huge range of branded mugs, with designs ranging from our classic Cambridge all the way through to our eco-friendly Bamboo Coffee Cup (which is perfect for coffee on-the-go, FYI).
Why Do Branded Mugs Make Great Promotional Giveaways?
According to research shared by the BPMA, promotional mugs are giveaway items with sticking power: with 89% of desks across the UK featuring at least one promotional item, 20% of the items are mugs.
And it's no surprise! As a nation, Brits love hot drinks, and a classic porcelain mug is a perfect way to enjoy your favourite warm beverage. According to the UK Tea & Infusions Association, we drink upwards of 100 million cups of tea daily; this infographic also suggests we imbibe 65 million cups of coffee each day, too. Impressive figures, no?
With all that in mind, it's little surprise that promotional mugs are one of the most popular items for a business to invest in. Without further ado, we've rounded up 10 of our most popular branded mugs and printed travel mugs - perfect for spreading awareness for your business and for keeping your customers caffeinated at the same time. We'll drink to that...
#1 Cambridge Promotional Mugs
Available in white by default (or in nine additional colours - price on application), our printed Cambridge mugs are one of our customers' absolute favourites when it comes to traditional branded mugs.
Ideal for effortlessly promoting your corporate message, these chunky mugs are perfectly sized for enjoying a cuppa, whether at home or in the office. Your logo can be printed in up to four colours; for a slightly different take on this classic style, you might want to consider our duo-coloured Durham mugs.
#2 Thermo Travel Mugs
Available in your choice of 14 colours, our Thermo Travel Mugs are something of a godsend when it comes to the early morning commute. Sure, your business can't control the weather or the traffic - but why not make things slightly more tolerable by giving your customers the option to have their favourite hot drink to-hand?
