    Hi everyone

    Just wondering where other Canadian brides got their travel mugs from. Did you order them online or did you get them at a store?

    We've been doing some searching in the stores thinking we might get a great end of summer deal and so far we've been disappointed. Wondering if online is the way to go.

    Thanks for any input you might have :)

          I was just going to write a post on this subject, but decided to do a search and this thread came up, but it is not helping me.

           

          I see TONS of ads where US brides got their personalized travel mugs and I have tried those sites (ebay, discount mugs, weddingfavours, etc.) but the shipping kills me, so I definitely cannot order from there.

           

          Does anyone know of any place (online or otherwise) in Canada where I can purchase koozies and travel mugs for my OOT bags?

           

          Thanks so much!

            Hi Sarah,

             

            There's a lot of other threads on the same topic but it takes a while searching through them.  Some helpful info you'll find in some of the brides planning threads so you really gotta dig for information.  Another good thread is 'where to shop for OOT bags in Canada' or something similar, I'm going through the same thing, debating on going through discountmugs or a local business.  Ironically the Canadian prices are a bit higher and I've read in other threads that one Canadian company orders from discountmugs so might as well cut out the middle man.  Ship to a US address if you can, it cuts the costs significantly!!!

             

            I need to order a lot of things for my OOT bag too so that's why I wanna be sure I'm going to get the best price possible for everything.

            Here's a site that I've recently gotten a quote from, they're in the GTA (Brampton):

            Hope it helps!  Good luck!!

              Hi... i completely understand the search for travel mugs.... all of the canadian sites charge 5 dollars a mug and if you see them for less you have to buy 500 min.. really frustrating!!

              I just purchased mine from orientaltrading.com .. it is an american site but the price was so much better than i have seen that i didnt mind the 27.00 in duty and shipping... They came to 5.24 for 6... I got the color your own and i am just going to take out the paper insert they come with and add nice paper and then make stickers, with our names and wedding date on the front, and maybe even one for the back that says "to have and to hold... and to keep your drink cold:) I will get the stickers from vistaprint (ill wait till i get a offer for free ones:)so i think they will look nice... hope this helps...and i will try to remember to post pics when i get it all together

                  I did the exact same thing, it was the best deal I could find.  I got these, the hibiscus bags and lanyards, coozies and even with shipping and duty it worked out to about $1.10 a piece. I think it was about $120 all in for 36 of everything.

                      Just ordered them. I'm just going to print out a design with out names and such.  Either take them to stapes to get printed, or just use pretty paper and my inkjet. Will post pics once I get them.
