A brief history of the Thermos® Bottle goes back to 1892. The glass vacuum flask was invented by Sir James Dewar of Scotland. It was intended to keep chemical experiments at a constant temperature. William B. Walker obtained the patent rights and founded The American Thermos Bottle Company in 1907. The first bottles in the Brooklyn NY factory were double-glass vacuum bottles and protected by a metal cylinder. Then in 1966, a new design was introduced. The Thermos bottles were made with a double wall of stainless steel. No glass was used. Now you could drop the bottle and not be disappointed with a broken glass insert.
Today, the latest design is a hi-end replacement for the Koozie® sleeve. It holds a soft drink can or a beer bottle, and keeps it cold for much longer.
Active business people spend time at the office, and time driving to appointments. Wherever you are, you want your fresh water to keep yourself healthy and properly hydrated. Thermos® has the ideal water pal for you. It is leakproof, so you don’t ruin your laptop. This Thermos water bottle keeps your water pleasingly cold for up to 12 hours, because of its vacuum technology. Since there is no glass involved, it is unbreakable. Your table and valuable paperwork won’t suffer from bottle sweat, because there is none. For added safety, the top remains closed until you press the button to drink. The large capacity is 18 ounces, and it is designed to fit in most car cup holders.
The thermos bottle was a ground-breaking invention of Sir James Dewar in 1892. He was an Oxford University scientist. His invention was bought in 1907 by three companies around the world. Since then, Thermos has been a household name. The companies have undergone numerous sales and acquisitions, even as late as 1997. One thing has remained constant over the years.. the quality of a useful everyday consumer product. The original Thermos water bottle used a vacuum in a glass insert. Now the vacuum is held by a double wall stainless steel container. Stainless steel is more durable than glass.
Here are 2 Thermos products you might not be aware of.
Promotional mugs come in a wide variety of styles, material, and colors today. When I started in the advertising specialty business 22 years ago, the coffee mug selection was rather boring. Mugs were available in…
Then along came promotional mugs in heavy plastic, stainless steel, rubber non-skid bottoms, vacuum insulated, and fancy non-drip closeable lids. Some are available with a combination of material and colors to match your corporate logo. Some companies, like Starline, rate their insulating abilities so you can compare one vacuum bottle with others. The higher the price, the better insulating ability it has. Of course, price is also determined by the size and the type of material.
Promotional mugs, travel mugs, coffee mugs, water bottles, and vacuum mugs all share these common qualities, which make them so popular.
APPRECIATED by your customers, contacts, and employees.
USEFUL. Mugs are so useful, that you might consider them a necessity.
PERPETUAL. Coffee and travel mugs last forever, unless of course you break one. But how hard is it to break stainless steel, ceramic, or heavy plastic?
A PERMANENT GOODWILL GESTURE. Every recipient remembers who gave them the water bottle or vacuum mug. How could they forget, since your logo is permanently imprinted right on it?
Camo is Cool. The number of Camo-Lovers is constantly increasing. Even people who never go to the woods like the look and feel of owning a camo-imprinted item. This Muskoka Fall™ Vacuum Water Bottle, SV98SS, will fit right into your collection of camo personalized pocket knives, camo backpack, hat, and jacket, multi-tools, and Mag-Lites.
That’s what I love about promotional mugs, and I hope you do, too. The never-ending changes in design and materials keeps this area of promotional advertising alive.
