A promotional product that is hardwearing and durable will ensure that your branding remains prominent for a considerable length of time. Melamine coasters are an ideal product to fit into that product specification. These would normally be described as a more traditional type of promotional idea and not one that immediately springs to mind when looking at the next marketing campaign. But when you consider that with only a little care and attention melamine coasters (and indeed place mats) can last for many years, protecting your desktop and promoting your company or service, then it is not such a traditional product to consider. Melamine coasters come as standard in either round or square at 100mm in size. In addition there is a rectangular 115 x 90mm coaster. Bespoke shapes can be created to order, making this a very versatile promotional product. Melamine is a very hardwearing and durable surface and is able to withstand temperatures of 140 degress. It is easily wiped clean, but must not be put in the dishwasher to maintain its long lifetime! As well as the versatility in shape of the melamine coasters, multiple print methods can be used such as screen, litho or digital.  These promotional coasters are either backed with cork or baize (felt like material) again providing the consumer with plenty of choice. There are plenty of other finished products other than the melamine coasters that are produced. These include place mats, trays, cheese boards, wipe clean boards to name a few. All of these are ideal for either the promotional, souvenir or catering markets and with good print areas on each and every product; there are possibilities of adding company details, products or services as well as your logo. So do you still see melamine coasters as a traditional promotional product. Well considering the bespoke shape possibility, the selection of print methods as well as a choice of backing available, is this really the case or should the word “traditional” be dropped and melamine coasters just be described as promotional products.]]>
