Employee Engagement and Morale

In our opinion, in any working environment, bespoke staff mugs are a must. They are a low-cost and effective way to enforce brand identity whilst also positively contributing your company culture. A personalised mug can make employees feel valued and appreciated, boosting morale and creating a sense of belonging. Alongside that, if you host team-building events or celebrate employee milestones, creating custom occasion mugs adds a personal touch to the workplace, and feeds into the overall job satisfaction.

Customer Loyalty Programmes

If you run any customer loyalty programmes or are planning to launch one, mugs can easily be added into your strategy. Offering a branded mug as a thank you for for repeat business or a welcome gift can incentivise customers to sign-up and remain active within the programme. As a constant and visual reminder of your business, the freebie branded mug may also lead to extra online social media promotion, as the customer shares a photo of their free gift online, praising your brand.

Limited Edition and Seasonal Releases

Create a sense of exclusivity and urgency by releasing limited edition or seasonal mugs.
