Are you planning a trail race, Oktoberfest, fundraiser or other event? Make your event stand out from the others with custom mugs from Grey Fox Pottery.
Handmade coffee mugs and beer steins with your custom logo help you make your event one that won't soon be forgotten. Each of our custom mugs is made by a skilled artist, by hand. That means no two mugs are identical. It also means you’re able to offer your attendees a product they won’t get anywhere else.
Our hand made stoneware tankards and mugs are unlike all others. Classy, stylish and affordable, they’re ideal for awards, participation gifts and retail sales. Let us customize your mugs with your logo or event artwork using our Ceramic Scrimshaw process that’s a cut above ordinary decals or screen prints on cheap blanks. Choose from funky two tone glazes or more traditional single colors from our wide selection.
All custom mugs and tankards come with a cork O ring so you can number them at no charge. We recommend hand washing to keep the cork intact. All of our glazes are lead-free and food safe. Minimum order is just 48 pieces. Email us your logo or artwork and we’ll send you a digital proof.
Whether you’re planning a festival, a race, a fundraiser for your favorite local charity or any other special event, Grey Fox Pottery can set you up with a superb selection of custom handmade stoneware. We offer an extensive variety of pottery styles and glaze colors, everything you need to design branded merchandise that will surprise and delight your guests.
Here are just a few types of special events that will truly shine with the incorporation of our stoneware products.
College Campus Events
When you’re planning a campus event to support or celebrate your student group, it’s critical to offer unique and fun incentives to attend. After all, between studying for exams, working part-time jobs to make tuition payments and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life, college students are sorely pressed for time. Games and activities work well, and free food works even better, but the best way to draw college students to your event is by selling or giving away useful merchandise that promotes your cause. Now, you just have to ask yourself one key question: Which branded items should I order?
To answer that, you need to think about which important items college students use every single day. These busy individuals work hard and play hard, and to fuel the fire of this fiercely active lifestyle, most of them need constant access to coffee. And, in order to fully experience the joys of this delicious drink, they need a high-quality coffee mug. So just imagine how successful your campus event will be if you offer gorgeous stoneware mugs (that display the custom artwork of your organization) to the people who attend! Students will flock to your venue in droves, gratefully accept your awesome mugs and fondly remember your brand every morning when they take that first tasty sip of caffeine.
The success of your fundraiser hinges on how effectively you can spread the word about your cause. Offering free or discounted stoneware mugs that sport your logo to your generous donors will endear your brand to them (compelling them to donate again if they can) and provide you with a fantastic source of free advertising. When these patrons proudly present their new coffee cups to coworkers and personally sing your praises, you’ll soon have entire offices and social circles talking about your fundraiser, increasing awareness and drawing in new supporters in the process. Just remember that patrons are much more likely to publicly display your branded mugs if you invest in quality materials (like our durable stoneware) instead of settling for weak and mass-produced cups.
If you want your festival to stand out as a memorable celebration, you need to switch things up. Potential guests will be expecting typical music, activities, food and beverages. These are attractive features, to be sure, but they won’t drive excitement or convince people to choose your event over other festivities that are less predictable. That’s where a touch of creativity and Grey Fox Pottery come into play.
Now, imagine if you partner with one of your city’s local breweries to provide tasty and refreshing alcoholic beverages to your guests. You might even consider creating new types of drinks that are named after or themed around your festival. And, for an incredibly cheap price, you pick up a stylish and classy assortment of handmade stoneware beer steins(that perfectly match the coloring and branding of your event) from Grey Fox to sell or give away to attendees. Suddenly, your vanilla festival becomes a completely unique experience that includes an opportunity for every guest to pick up a fun and practical piece of pottery.
Grey Fox Pottery also offers a unique series of tankard and goblet Renaissance Festival Mugs that can be detailed with intricate artwork and a wide assortment of colors. These are fantastic souvenirs that will sell like wildfire at your next Renaissance festival or fair. Best of all, our minimum order is just 48 mugs, allowing you to choose a range of different styles and looks for your guests without breaking the bank.
Non-Profit Foundation Events
Branded merchandise is one of the best ways to raise money and advertise for your non-profit foundation. That’s why a number of non-profit organizations (like the Smithsonian Institution) set up online stores and gift shops at their museums. Rather than pouring money into expensive marketing campaigns, consider picking up a few sets of stoneware coffee mugs that advocate your foundation and its mission for your next public event. Many of your current supporters and new guests will be more than happy to spend some money on merchandise to support your efforts, especially if they’re getting a trendy stoneware piece out of the deal.
Here at Grey Fox Pottery, we’re fully committed to working with companies of all sizes. So, whether you order 50 mugs or 400 for your non-profit event, we can accommodate your merchandising needs for an affordable price.
Mud Runs/Running Events
If you’re in charge of organizing mud runs, marathons or other running events, you know full well that they’re not for the faint of heart. These are intense athletic trials that require unshakable dedication and skill, and their brave participants deserve more than a generic T-shirt or water bottle to reward their efforts. Ordering custom coffee mugs from Grey Fox is a great way to promote your running event and design prizes for your runners that match their exceptional quality and hardiness. All of our stoneware mugs are made with sturdy and durable clay, ensuring that they won’t chip or wear away in the wash. Last but not least, our minimum order size of 48 pieces will allow you to create different types of mugs (with unique messaging, styles and colors) for participants and audience members!
