Promotional products have stayed around this long for good reason. There are a countless amount of benefits that come from gifting promotional products with your logo on them.

Q. Is porcelain or ceramic better for coffee mugs?
A. Porcelain mugs are thinner and tend to break more easily than ceramic mugs.
Q. How do you clean coffee mugs?
