    Thanks so much for the warning. I was going to get some plastic sports bottles too...just figured plastic would be lighter than the stainless steel ones for transporting. Thanks again!

      Thanks for the head's up. The mugs are such a great deal from there that I think all of us were thinking of it at one point or another. I wonder if you ordered plain mugs and got someone local that you trusted to put on the silkscreen. Just an idea!

        That SUCKS Heidi b/c the personalization double the prices of the mugs! Thanks for wanrning everyone.

        I also got super cool mugs from discount mugs and then I had stickers printed through Vistaprint - the kinds that stores put on the outside of their windows. It was cheaper that way - the personalization is so expensive and this way I got unlimited colors! I cut each design out of the large sticker and applied to each mug.

          just wondering...

          which will keep drinks colder? We're looking for something with a lid and it seems everything with a lid has stainless steal on the inside. does anyone know if that will keep the drinks cool at all.

          I've been to Cuba during July and brought a travel mug with steel on the inside and found it didn't keep my drink cool long. It was a cheap mug from walmart, but I worried these will do the same with these ones.

              We purchased ours from Discountmugs and had no issues with the screening. Perhaps it was just the type of mug that Heidi used - note also that her original post is not recent. It's quite possible they have fixed the problem since then.

              Regarding the temperature - any two-walled mug design (whether it's interior is plastic or stainless) with a lid will keep a drink colder than a one-wall mug design. That being said, when it's almost 100 degrees outside, even the two-walled design can only do so much. The drinks will eventually warm up. The main reason we purchased the mugs for our guests was not so much for keeping the drinks cold (even though that's what we all put on our tags!), but for the size. A lot of AIs pour their drinks in small, disposable plastic glasses which means the drinks get warm really quickly, and they don't hold much, so you're making more trips to the bar! At Dreams they used glass instead of plastic, but our mugs were bigger so they obviously held more of the good stuff!

              If I have any complaint, it's not about the logo rubbing off, but the sand scratching the shiny surface. However, this didn't bug me (or anyone else). I still use mine to hold my coffee every morning as I commute to work. My sister uses hers to hold drinks around her pool every summer. They were definitely worth the cost and trouble.

              Here's a picture of ours:

                Hi Thomasjsgirl,
                Can you tell me what style you ordered? They have so many and they are all starting to look the same to me, lol.

                  Hi Renee! We used this style (#DM59):

                  I used a plain starfish instead of our monogram so that it wasn't too personalized. From our experience, our group of friends preferred that.

                  Here's the starfish clipart:
