Why Use Printed Travel Mugs

They’re universally appealing

Printed travel mugs can be used on the morning commute or to transport liquids to a picnic or outdoor event. They make ideal gifts for people who spend most of their time in their car and are perfect to take on long walks. They are especially popular with those who love the outdoors. If you’re looking for a product that appeals to everyone you could be onto a winner. So why use printed travel mugs? Simply, because they are universally appealing and a great fit for any type of business.

They’re an effective way to promote your business

If you’re asking yourself the question ‘why use promotional travel mugs?’ it might be because you want to reward loyal customers for their business or you’re promoting an event or competition. These products are designed to last and certainly gain the attention of a crowd if deemed, ‘free’ at an event or exhibition. Businesses promote themselves with pens or pencils before moving onto something ‘different.’ If you’re looking to buy, our top tip is to buy in bulk. Sometimes this is more cost effective than buying in lower quantities and re-stocking every few months. This ensures you have plenty of materials to use during the year and prevents the high express charges from last minute orders.

They’re environmentally-friendly

Reusable travel mugs are the solution to the ever-growing plastic cup epidemic. Many have the best intentions of separating the plastic lid from the cardboard cup on their commute to work but this often doesn’t happen. Smart business can utilise the opportunity by branding take away cups with their company details, logo or message. Wherever your client takes their coffee cup, people will notice the stylish mug and instantly recognise your brand.

In today’s climate, promotional travel mugs are one of the best gifts for companies looking to increase their brand reputation. They are the best ethical choice and marketing choice for advertising gifts this winter.

They’re made to last

Why use printed travel mugs? Because unlike traditional mugs that are easily chipped and smashed, they’re designed for the wear and tear of travelling. If you’re looking to buy there are plenty of options available. Send them in the post or hand them out at exhibitions or events.

The best marketing practice is testing different strategies. You could spend months analysing which product may suit your business, but thinking is no substitute for actually getting out there and trying different products. With that in mind, why not place your order with Redbows today?

How do they retain heat?

Double walled Travel Mugs function similarly to a thermos or flask, with walls constructed out of stainless steel, with a reflecting layer between to conduct and retain heat. When sealed the warmth will be kept within the mug, by the inner and outer walls. Double walled mugs are not vacuum treated.

Warm beverages lose heat through evaporation, even a thin plastic lid serves a vital role in keeping the drink hot. They are designed with no handles as they are easier to grab when on the move and in many cases have a narrower base to fit stably into a wide range of mug holders. They are usually well-insulated and completely enclosed with a spill proof lid to prevent leaking.


The terms are thrown around constantly, but do you understand what they mean? All you’re looking for is a cup that most importantly, retains heat. Whatever your preference we’re here to clarify and make your life easier. Looking for furhter information? Visit

Travel Mugs

Not all travel mugs are thermal and not all thermal mugs are designed to fit in drinks machines or cup holders. A travel mug is designed to transport liquids. A thermal mug is designed to keep liquids warm. Both terms can be used but it is important to look for certain features such as whether the mug has insulation or not.

Thermal Cups

A thermal cup is a general term for any cup or mug that keeps your drink piping hot or ice cold. It provides thermal insulation.

Vacuum Cups

Vacuum cups rely on a space almost completely rid of air to provide insulation. The vacuum chambers are coated with a reflective material, like silver, to prevent heat loss by radiation. Molecules inside the chambers transfer heat by conduction.

Insulation Cups

Also known as double wall cups, insulation cups house an inner and outer wall to maintain the drinks temperature. The inner wall is usually stainless steel while the outer wall can be anything from stainless steel to plastic, ceramic, glass or any other kind of proprietary materials. Suitable for those who dislike the metallic taste when drinking coffee from a metal cup.
