One of the newest and most unique ways to send a message is to use a coaster. Some of the most common times to see this interesting way of sending a message is at special occasions, such as birthdays and weddings. You will commonly see custom coasters used to invite guests. With weddings, this means your “save the date” can be a coaster that ends up on the invitee’s table. For birthdays, the coaster reminds people of the party date and possibly the age of the person having the birthday. What makes the coasters all the more useful is on the day of the actual event, guests can take home the custom coasters to commemorate the occasion.
Custom coasters also make for great advertisements, so you might see the details for a restaurant, tourist site, or an upcoming concert on a coaster. Flyers and ads would deliver the same message but the medium has no use and is lost. Custom coasters, however, can still work for drink glasses.
The most memorable custom coasters you might come across will be humorous. Some coasters that promote holidays have a wealth of jokes that poke fun at the relationship between alcohol and spending time with family. Others simply focus on wine and the ability for people to be happier or more agreeable because they have something in their glass.
Some companies that sell coasters also sell custom coffee sleeves.
