Printed Drinks Bottles

Printed drinks bottles have become a major player in the promotional scene. They come in all shapes and sizes and a variety of materials. In addition, some have thermal properties to keep drinks cold or hot.

Furthermore, they have the major advantage of being reusable. This is a major factor in their popularity, especially amongst those who care about the environment. Portable and convenient, reusable drinks bottles reduce the need for throwaway plastic ones.

Branded drinks bottles: materials

As previously mentioned, branded drinks bottles are available in a variety of materials. These include: stainless steel, aluminium, recycled PET, plastic variants and also now in bamboo. If you require your bottles to be thermal, then stainless steel, aluminium or bamboo are best. If you simply want an everyday, non-thermal bottles, then recycled PET or plastic may be for you.

Re-fill, re-use

Shops, cafes and businesses will offer free water refill points in every major city and town in England by 2021. The move comes amid growing concern about the effect of plastic waste on the environment. Refill stations and public fountains will be able to be found via an app. Also, window signs will point people in the direction of the nearest one. This is where your printed drinks bottles come in.

The best, most environmentally-friendly way to fill up with free water is to have a re-usable printed drinks bottle. Furthermore, they’re an excellent way of promoting your brand name, corporate identity, school, college, club or event.


There are two main printing methods used to brand drinks bottles. They are screen print and dye sublimation. The former is best for designs and logos comprised of simple spot colours. The latter is the preferred option if your design or logo is multi-coloured. Especially with tints and blends or if they’re photographic in nature.
