Knowing which custom double wall tumbler is most effective at insulating beverages can be tough. Every day new drinkware promising to maintain a liquid’s temperature for hours enters the market. To assist you in finding cups that help keep drinks hot or cold, we’ll show you how different types of insulated tumblers work and what to look for in custom drinkware.


Types of Insulation Available for Insulated Tumblers and Personalized Mugs

Insulation is one of the most important things to look for when selecting a cup to help keep liquid at its ideal temperature. Several types are available in custom drinkware, each with varying abilities to help keep liquids at temperature.

  • Air insulation: Good—helps keep drinks cool or hot for an extended period of time.
  • Vacuum insulation: Better—helps keep drinks cool or hot longer than air insulation.
  • Copper insulation: Best—helps keep drinks cool or hot for the longest time.

Help Keep Drinks Hot or Cold with Double-wall Tumblers

A personalized mug or custom tumbler with dual walls serves an important purpose: It uses air insulation to help keep the ambient air temperature away from your drink. This assists in keeping a drink hot on frigid days or cool during a scorcher.

Here’s a winning option with proven performance: the Contigo® West Loop Travel Tumbler in black. Constructed with a double-wall system, this imprinted travel tumbler has a stylish tapered look for easy grabbing on the go. Auto-seal technology provides spill-proof, leak-proof drinking. Best of all, the matte-black finish complements any company logo color.
