Lets look at why drinkware should be top of your list of products to consider for your next branding merchandise campaign:
Mobile Branding: Unlike many promotional products, the custom printed drink bottle is a "mobile" branding solutions, your logo travels with the recipient literally as they move around, be it for a morning walk or jog, commute to work or in the car, be it a hot or cold drink. A literal mobile billboard for your brand as the user interacts with people during the day, ideal for building and maintaining brand or logo awareness.
Positive Brand Image - Brand image is critical to every business, the drink bottle branding campaign gives your brand the opportunity to align with being healthy and also socially responsible by promoting the use of re usable drink bottles, hence reducing the use of single user water bottles.
Eco Friendly: The vast majority of Drinkware options are Eco Friendly! Made from either recycled, sustainable, recyclable or biodegradable materials like Stainless Steel, Glass, Wood, Cork and even trendy Rice Husk / Wheat Straw Biodegradable plastic options. By promoting these materials, your brand sends a message you do care for the environment and the future.
Durability - Long lasting and highly durable drinkware options give your brand a long life cycle and return on investment. Vacuum insulated drink bottles, can be used for hot and cold liquid thus further increasing their effectiveness as they can be used by more people more often.
Cost: Affordable to even the smallest marketing budget. The variety of materials you can use starting from plastic and moving to higher features like vacuum insulated bottles, and premium bottles. In addition the high durability mentioned above affords your campaign a good relative cost over life cycle of product.
Perceived Value: Most drink bottle styles have a mid to high perceived value, as they are re usable products. Also higher end options made from wood, glass, stainless steel and vacuum insulated score well for perceived value vs cost of purchase.
Integrated into Daily Life: Drink bottles, coffee cups, sports shakers, all are products we use every day of the week, be it at work, after work activities like exercise, gym, kids sports etc. By seamlessly integrating into people lifestyles your marketing tool increases the ability of your brand to be seen, and ultimately assists you getting "bang for your buck".
Employee Gift: The new working norm is here to stay, with people like Bill Gates predicting over 30% of workers will work from home even in the predicted years post Covid. So what part does a humble coffee cup with your logo play in employee motivation you ask ?
Some stats on this to note:

CD/DVD Replication ( Pressed or Manufactured Disc)
Often called a "Pressed" disc , this is the Manufacturing Process that creates a "Glass Master" of your original CD Master Disc. This Glass Master is used to generate a metal stamper which plays a similar role in the process to the old photo "negatives" or printing "plates". This Metal Stamper is then used to "press" multiple copies of each CD.
In the case of DVD-9 - 2 metal Stampers, which are used to then "press" multiple copies of your DVD.
Acceptable Formats are:

The Optimal process to produce your CD or DVD is to use the Replication process, especially if your project is distributed in a retail Environment or your are replicating quantites over 1000 in number. If you dont require so many discs ( and most production runs are under 1000 units ), then I recommend the duplication process, and it will save you having hundred of CD or DVD drink coasters as well!
