This week the featured product on BrandSLAMS is the 10 oz Lowball Viking Tumbler.  This amazing tumbler is is a double wall vacuum sealed tumbler that is sure to keep the hot drinks hot for hours and the cold drinks cold for…well…days.  It’s amazing.  And this size drink works extremely well for the having hot coffee at the office or a cold drink by the pool.

16 oz Persona Tower Travel Mug

We have all seen the cheap tumblers in the promo industry.  They are fine, but they don’t really do the job of keeping coffee hot.  What does that mean?  It means your customers won’t really use them, so your marketing dollars are wasted.  The Persona will become your clients favorite coffee mug.  It keeps coffee hot for over 5 hours…so when you are on the road you want this mug!  This is the mug that will give you marketing impact when you give the gift…and for all the miles down the road!  These tremendous tumblers are on special for $13.89 (setup $55) right now.
