Are you looking for a promotional canteen? One that you can put your branding on but that can actually be used for real life expeditions? If so, you likely already have discovered that they’re not at all easy to find. That’s why our Aluminum Canteen is so special. Continue reading
When planning a project, it can be daunting to decide your bottle logos should look like. Should you use your company logo? Design something new? How do you maximize the imprint area and make your message stand out? Did you know that we have a selection of bottles with the capability for a seamless, full color wrap?
Many of our clients have expressed the desire to make their bottle logos fully wrap around. Up until now, the only option was a wrapped design with a gap, usually about ¾”, to avoid smearing and lessen the appearance of slight misalignment. The technology just wasn’t there to craft full wraps with perfect precision. Until now. Continue reading
Did you plan 2019 budgets around the possibility of skyrocketing tariffs? Nope, we didn’t think so. Nonetheless, here we are, midway through the year, with tariffs rocking Chinese imports and driving prices up.
Planning a wedding can be utterly overwhelming. There are an infinite number of teeny details to cover—flowers, cake, guest seating…the list can be daunting. So pause for a sec and let’s talk about something fun: wedding favors!
You can provide your loved ones at the wedding with a special token of your big day without spending oodles of money (but feel free to spend oodles—I’m sure the gifts will be well received!). How much money you spend on wedding favors is up to you, but make sure they’re useful and appealing to a wide range of guests.
From a glass and a Tritan water bottle to custom reusable bags to sunscreen beyond, here are 10 wedding favor gift ideas for even YOUR budget:
Looking for a beautiful bottle with a high perceived value and a modern update? Look no further than our Glass Tumbler with Bamboo Lid. Our sales administrator, Deborah, spent some time using this bottle and had plenty to talk about!
Custom glass tumblers are classic and beautiful. They come in a wide range of styles, and often use silicone protectors to add a pop of color. Deborah loved that this bottle takes that one step further, carrying the color of the silicone sleeve through to the straw hole and the lid’s gasket. And speaking of straws—there’s a stopper on this one. It may not seem like a big deal, but the stopper keeps the Tritan (read: durable!) straw from falling out of the tumbler accidentally!

You know how some corporations and municipalities have banned (or are thinking about banning) disposable plastic straws? Yeah, so…about those straw bans. There is definitely more than one side of the story to consider.
Ok, so there’s plastic pollution. That’s a fact. Straws are plastic, and they’re certainly turning up in oceans, lakes, and other waterways. So, for people who want to see humans consume less plastic, straws are a pretty easy target.
Estimates vary as to how much plastic straw pollution is out there. One report suggests they make up more than 7% of the plastics found in the U.S. by piece. There’s also a stat floating around about how Americans use over 500 million plastic straws a day. Know where this came from? A 9-year-old boy’s telephone poll (from 2011). It goes without saying that there’s major scientific uncertainty over THAT number! Continue reading
Here at Bulletin Bottle we really do hand-pick our items before putting them on the site. Sometimes, a bottle (or tumbler) comes along that we unanimously love SO much that we can’t stop talking about it. In the case of our Rubberized Insulated Sports Bottle, we went so far as to do a small run with OUR logo on it. We love it that much! Then Deborah graciously offered to write a staff review, so we’re sharing what she (well, what we ALL) think!
Deborah said, “This is the perfect bottle for business travelers or campers alike!” This bottle is kind of a hybrid, as it can be referred to as either a tumbler or a bottle. Either way, it’s got a classy, sleek design, which is universally appealing. Continue reading
Recently, I had the awesome opportunity to tour Eimskip, a major transportation company that serves the Northern Atlantic. I was very interested to see how Portland, Maine (our home turf!) has become an integral part of international trade and learn more about how Bulletin Bottle is impacted by businesses like Eimskip.
Eimskip was founded in 1914 and runs a network of 63 offices in 20 countries and operates a fleet of 22 vessels. Not too shabby! Their presence in Portland is large and proud. Continue reading
Have you seen our newest category of custom tumblers? They take buying wholesale water bottles to a whole new level. Gone are the days of only having bike bottles and squeeze bottles to choose from when considering a bulk water bottle purchase. There’s still a very definite place for those type of bottles, but options have grown a lot over the years to include high end, retail inspired designs.
A great addition to that category is our classically designed Stainless Insulated Tumbler with Straw. We think this is going to be (one of) this year’s hottest items. As recently as Monday night, we saw two celebrities using this same style to drink from during a popular television show! Continue reading
Here’s the low-down on one of our most often asked questions, and we sure do wish the answer was better: We don’t sell them because they just don’t exist.
It’s true. On a regular basis, we scour our sources and turn over every rock for one–just ONE!–USA made stainless steel water bottle. Every lead ends in China.
We dream about the day that we can shout from the rooftops that we’ve hit gold and found a USA made stainless bottle. But, the logistics and costs involved with manufacturing a stainless bottle here in America are seemingly too high for factories to overcome. So, we might actually never see the day. Continue reading
