Get a little sticker shock on the shipping charges for your last order of promotional mugs? As common as they are in the promotional arena, it’s interesting to note that promotional mugs have some serious shipping issues and costs you need to be aware of. This video explains:
- Plan for Higher Shipping Costs on Promo Mugs. Because of their dimensions, your shipment could be divided into several large boxes. And if you’re ordering those made of plastic material, the lighter weight plus the larger box dimensions could mean additional freight charges. For ceramic or glass drinkware, there could be additional repacking fees which cover the cost of packing your order in protective materials to help prevent breaking in transit. Get a freight quote from your distributor so you can build the cost into your budget.
- Plan for Storage. Since you may have several large boxes of the mugs coming your way, plan in advance where you will store them prior to use.
- Choose More Compact Printed Cups for Events. For casual events in particular, choose promo cups that nest together (as shown in the video). You’ll save money on shipping and storage. As well, shipping less boxes is more eco friendly, too. Click here to shop for printed cups for your next event.
