And its not just the classic pint glass for beer which can sit for weeks on a wholesale suppliers' shelf -- it's the martini glass, the shot glass, pilsner glass and even the cherished champagne flute! For restaurant, banquet and hospitality equipment buyers, the large wholesale barware catalogs or local wholesale warehouse supply stores are the perfect solution for their glass barware and restaurant equipment needs.
There are many other ways martini glasses, shot glasses, pilsner glasses and glass beer mugs can be used. In the special event industry, which includes both personal, cause-related and corporate events, glass barware is frequently customized. A local craft beer enterprise, for example, may host a special party to showcase a new flavor. A special event professional is hired, a tent is ordered, tablecloths are chosen, live music is arranged. Custom craft beer glasses are personalized for the event as a promotion for this special occasion. An artist designs a logo, perhaps including the name of the new craft beer flavor, adds the date or some other slogan. The design is sized onto the glass, a promotional glass products vendor is selected and the manufacture of the souvenir beer glass or beer mug is in progress.
Local restaurant supply warehouses or online wholesale restaurant supply catalogs cannot do what boutique personalization companies such as ours can do. We create personalized glass barware which can be re-printed over and over again for many years using the same artwork.
A trend is recent years has been the popularity of the craft beer movement. There are thousands of bars and restaurants which feature beer making equipments as part of their restaurant design. We have been to many home brew style restaurants with copper brewing tanks, big ones, right in the middle of the bar or dining area. Many of these enterprises will host special events in the brewing environment: they rent the place out. Custom pilsner glasses, pint glasses, traditional pub glasses or even the small 5-ounce tasting flight glasses can be customized for each special event. The custom bar glasses can be cleaned and presented to the customer as a souvenir of the event.
Charity fundraisers embrace the movement toward working with boutique promotional product companies like ours to create very personalized custom barware. Martini glasses are a big favorite ever since Cosmopolitan martinis and other novelty martinis have entered vogue. Favorite: apple martini or chocolate martini, oh my. Our company can imprint a fundraising logo in one or the more sophisticated 4-color logo onto a standard martini glasses. Party goers scoop these up as take-home souvenirs.
Special event planning companies and wedding planners have seen a spike in the popularity of custom logo champagne flutes. Brides and grooms work very hard on many details when planning a wedding. Custom champagne glasses generally with feature the couple's name and wedding date. Artwork can be added to further enhance the champagne flute's logo design. Our process can print one or four colors on these promotional glasses.
As the overall trend for society trends away from formal and skews to casual, wedding planners have noticed the developing popularity of barn weddings. Barn weddings enable the engaged couples to express themselves outside the convention of a reception hall or banquet facility. We always smile when we receive an order for the "glass can" style or "Mason Jar" style of custom logo glasses. Sometimes referred to as "canning jar glasses", these are jar style barware personalized for the wedding or other casual special event. We offer them in several liquid volumes, so be careful to order the correct liquid volume you need.
