Coaster Buy Guide by Perkal

Some people will have a set of keys that they need to have with them at all times when they are doing their job. This allows them to open up the office or do other things that are necessary. Promotional lanyards can be a great promotional product for these people.

Keys are something that can get set down and forgotten about when someone is rushing around working. This can cause the keys to be locked inside of the office in some cases. It can be very frustrating when this happens.

Using a lanyard, people can put their keys on it and have these with them at all times. This way they are not getting set down anywhere and forgotten. Some work uniforms do not have pockets either so that would not be an option.

Mug coasters are perfect giveaways for companies as they are cheaper than other giveaway products such as pens, umbrellas and other merchandise that companies often give away during special events. What makes them more ideal is the fact that companies can customize these items by adding their logos or brand names in the coasters. Coasters are especially useful for companies that have major clients in the food industry. That being said, these mats can also be used for offices and even for homes.

Choosing the Perfect Coaster

Coaster mats can come in different varieties and choosing the best material will not only work to the company's advantage in terms of cost, it would also make a profound impact to the client and to their clients as well.

Paper mats might be ideal for those who are on a tight budget and looking for a short-term advertisement of their products or services. As mats made from paper easily gets ripped, warped or distorted from liquids, they are generally disposable and often used for one-time or short-term events. For companies that are promoting a new product or services but have limited budget, then choosing paper coasters is ideal.

For companies that have a bigger budget and want to give away merchandise that is reusable, coasters made of cork or bamboo materials are ideal. Cork or bamboo mats are reusable as they are easy to clean and often resistant to liquids or stains. Using these materials is also environmentally friendly as they can be recycled and one can reuse them several times.

For a more expensive coaster mat, ceramics are the best and often preferred by multi-national companies as they are perfect gifts for important clients. Ceramic mats are perfect as they are easy to clean and resistant to heat and designs are more prominently displayed than other mat materials.

How to Buy Your Coaster Mugs

Choosing the best coaster mat for your company depends on the budget allocated by your company and the purpose of the merchandise to be given away. If your company is sponsoring a one-time event, then opting for a paper mat is ideal as it is cheaper and you will be left with little to no leftovers. If, on the other hand, your company is thinking of sending gifts to long-term clients as a thank you for their continuous loyalty, choosing ceramics is the best choice. Designs can be done in a classic or timeless fashion so buying by bulk or wholesale can save your company a lot while ensuring that the other pieces can still be given to other clients in the future.
