    Hi there! We are not going to put labels on our cups so people can re-use them. 

    I personally think they will be more likely to take them to work, etc... if they don't have our names/wedding date on them, just my opinion but we got bubba kegs so we really want people to use them again.

    We're going to attach tags that can be ripped off. 

     

    Just my two cents! :)

So I was thinking of leaving them plain, but now I am having second thoughts. My girlfriend said that this way people are more likely to use it again. Thoughts? I was going to put their name on each cup using a labeller. Your thoughts are appreciated:)

      I think what we might do is make tags on the computer, laminate them, and then attach them to the handle of the mugs with ribbon in our colours.  For yours, to do red ribbon on the turquoise mugs and turquoise ribbon on the red would be awesome.  Then people can take the tags off when they get home.

        Great idea! The tags I used were not laminated so they got soaked at the pool and didn't last long. I think this would work very well!!!

          Just my two cents... I love that so many ppl want to join us in Jamaica for our weddind and I think they all are just as excited as we are. We chose to put our logo on all the mugs so that when we use them again everyone will remember what an amazing time we had (are going to have!).

           

          Now are mugs are actually red (bought by our TA by the way) but you get the idea. We bought them from Etsy seller DavetDesigns, she was great to work with and the stickers cam pretty quickly from shipping from the states. They are like a plastic material and I've all ready put it through the dishwasher and it didn't fade or come off!

          We also got our Bubba Mugs engraved at "Things Engraved" Not too sure if I love them yet (although they are a great souviner) The wording is hard to read, it has our nicknames on it too. I will probably use the Red ones eveyone will be using, FI will use his BIG Bubba!

            Hmm that is to bad they won't go on the cup straight - if they are like J and G's below, I think they look great! My writing is a little curved on the cups to, but I don't think people will really notice.  I think it is nice to put people's name on them - the laminated tags might be the way to go!

             

            The label maker would also work to - I think as long as it looks pretty, and not like office labeling :)

              If anyone is looking for bags still, BTR has some good ones on sale, ranging in price from 2.99-8.99. The make is "envirosax". Here are  some of the bags. There are at least 50 different designs for sale

                My mugs from Factory 21 arrived last week! I'll post a pic soon. They turned out great. Duty was expensive though, so beware for those of you who are thinking of buying. Make sure you factor in duty! For 75 mugs, with shipping, tax and duty, I paid about $260.

                      Hey Ladies quick question!

                       

                      I am looking for little tube bottles of either Advil or Tylenol. I found them at Dollarama for $2, but I was wondering if anyone found them for cheaper in the states at either Walmart or an American drugstore? I'll be heading across the boarder just before x-mas when I go home to visit my parents, so if I can get them cheaper in the states I will wait, if not I'll just buy them now!

                       

                      Thanks :)
