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.

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 →
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 →

The booth WAS pretty sweet. From smoothies to high-fives, robotic sketch artists to topiaries…it was full of mega-fun stuff. But Android’s custom water bottle promotion was a big deal at the show. Visitors could create a print and have it painted onto one of 5000 water bottles. Everyone wanted one!

You may have seen recent blogs discussing our different bottle materials. Time and again, we refer to a Tritan water bottle as a quality alternative to an aluminum, glass, or other BPA-free plastic bottle. Does it seem like we just love Tritan? Well…we do! Here’s why the recipients of your water bottle project will too.
1. Dishwasher safe. BOOM. Really, do you need any other reason? For longevity of the imprint on the bottle, we do suggest hand-washing your water bottles in warm soapy water. But, a Tritan water bottle is very happy on the top shelf of your dishwasher, next to your glass water bottles. No other material should ever be washed in this manner. But all water bottles should be washed in SOME manner. Because gross. Continue reading →
