Learn how to go about ordering these promotional gifts and take a closer look at some of our favorite custom wine glasses and personalized beer mugs.

How to select the right custom wine glasses and personalized beer mugs

Now that you’ve decided you want to purchase custom wine glasses and personalized beer mugs to gift to clients or staff members, you should pay attention to which products you’re going to engrave. You want to find a well-made product that they can enjoy for years without worrying about the items breaking or the imprint vanishing after being run through the dishwasher.

Pay attention to quality

Quality is key when ordering your custom wine glasses and personalized beer mugs. Cheaply made glass is more prone to breakage, and while some people prefer plastic glasses to avoid cracks, this material is not quite as elegant. Decide whether or not you’re hoping to give a more refined gift, in which case you should certainly order the products made from glass, or if you’re interested in giving a practical item that can be taken on the go, like plastic glasses or even wine tumblers. Pinnacle Promotions prides itself on offering the best promotional gifts made from the highest quality items, so if you opt to order customized products as gifts this year, you can rest assured that our collection is excellent.

When you order custom glassware with Pinnacle Promotions, you know you’re getting the best quality products because we make sure to use effective imprinting methods that will stay for years to come. Other personalized products may use cheaper methods that are not safe for the dishwasher or begin to wear off after a short period time, but our screen printing method will create a beautiful gift that can be put in the dishwasher without worrying about destroying the design you thoughtfully decided upon. You can also opt for a non-metallic print, which renders many of our top products microwave safe as well.

Select the right design

Custom wine glasses and personalized beer mugs are available in many shapes and sizes. When choosing which glassware to order as your next gifts to give, consider whom you intend to present these items to and what type of design would most appeal to them. In terms of custom wine glasses, you can opt for a classic stemmed glass design or the tasteful stemless option, which prevents spills and gives your barware a unique set of glasses.

Though some people don’t realize that there is a difference between a glass designed for white wine and a glass designed for red, there are slightly altered characteristics that you might want to consider before selecting your custom wine glasses. If the client is more of a white wine drinker, then you should choose our glasses designed for this type of vintage, which tend to be shorter with a smaller bowl area. For clients who prefer a bold red, these glasses are taller and feature a larger or wider bowl, which is intended to accentuate the rich flavors and scents typically associated with red wines.

Personalized beer mugs are also available in a variety of sizes and shapes depending on preference and intended use. For a classic style, you can select the curved shape of the pub glass or the tapered style of the classic ale pint glass. The tall pilsner glass or the unique flare pilsner glasses are good options too. Or consider one of the beer mug options available in sizes that range from 16 ounces to 25 ounces.

Order in advance

Once you’ve decided that custom wine glasses or personalized beer mugs are the gift you want to give this year, you should place your order right away. The customization process can add some time to preparing your order, so always be sure to check the estimated production time listed on each individual product. Most custom glassware items take between five and seven days to create, but we recommend ordering them two to three weeks in advance just to ensure you’ll receive the gift well in advance.
