We suggest heeding the advice of our special contributors, and trying out some of these oft overlooked uses for water bottles. You also may use them at your discretion for ROI justification on your custom bottle project: Continue reading →
Let’s face the hard reality: Some day you may have to get rid of some water bottles. Maybe you’re moving and need to lighten your load. Perhaps they’ve come to the end of their life span. Or—gasp—you just don’t like a certain water bottle and want to ditch it.
Wait! Don’t throw away your unwanted custom printed bottles. Find out how or if they can be recycled. Yes, you can likely recycle those poor bottles, furthering their sole purpose of decreasing plastics waste (you know, the reason you first switched to reusable bottles in the first place).
So how do you figure this out? Easy…just use the SPI’s resin ID coding system. Huh? What the…? Let us explain: Continue reading →
Choosing a USA bottle for your promotional needs is not a monumental task. Thanks to technology and readily available plastics manufacturers in our country, finding bottles made here is rather easy. Not so simple to find, though, are USA bottles made from metal (though we do offer one!) because of the costs and lack of available resources.
From cheap bike bottles to high-value Tritan, we offer a wide selection of custom printed USA bottles to fit your marketing goals. Here are 5 reasons why selecting one makes great sense: Continue reading →
OK, real estate agents. Winter used to be the slow time, but does that even really exist anymore? In this market, houses are still selling and buyers are still on the lookout—especially in areas with low inventory and high demand. So let’s talk about closing gifts for realtors.
Your buyers and sellers probably aren’t making 30-year loan commitments just for the closing swag (but if they are, let us know what you hand out because we might want in on that!). That doesn’t mean you can’t offer a lovely thank you for their business when they’re done passing keys across the table.
Did you just start a new business? Want to increase awareness about your nonprofit? Hoping to encourage employees to be more healthful? There are lots of ways in which custom water bottles in bulk can make your brand more appealing. Here are five ways we love: Continue reading →
We have lots and lots of clients involved in our future’s higher education. In looking at trends and popular items over the last week, we discovered that a few of our water bottles have a disproportionate following with our college clients!

So, in no particular order, here are the top six water bottles for college students from our website! Continue reading →
The only differences between custom glass water bottles are price and features, right? Wrong! Surprised? Believe it or not, not all glass is created equal, which means that there ARE material differences to consider when shopping for the best custom glass water bottles for your project.
Glass is seen by many as the purest way to drink water. After all, glass is a non-porous surface, which means that it won’t absorb odors or tastes. Glass is the only widely-used packaging material considered “GRAS” or “generally recognized as safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It’s also 100% recyclable and can be reused endlessly with no loss in quality or purity, according to the Glass Packaging Institute. Glass water bottles can withstand high temperatures without melting, so you can feel free to put your glass bottles in the dishwasher without incident. (the same may not be true for add-ons like silicone sleeves or plastic lids). Continue reading →
