Coffee mugs are used in a comfortable environment; they aren't served in fancy restaurants. Many formal dining establishments serve teacups, and if they are serving coffee, then the teacup is adequately referred to as a "coffee cup". Typically made out of ceramic, coffee cups can also be made out of Pyrex, and thermal type plastics for use by people in the workplace. Coffee mugs may also be made out of porcelain, marble, glass, copper, stainless steel, chrome, acrylic, and stoneware. Coffee mugs vary in size as well. For instance, you can purchase coffee mugs ranging in sizes such as 11 ounces, 15 ounces, and 21 ounces. You can also purchase a stein, which is a taller, slender form of a mug. These come in various sizes as well. Steins are typically made for beer and hold about a pint of liquid, but they are very common and popular for coffee too. Coffee mugs have become a staple in American culture. Many people often collect various coffee mugs. Coffee mugs may be decorated with any type of image imaginable. Many businesses will imprint their company logos on coffee mugs and give them to their employees. These types of coffee mugs are a form of advertising and are usually purchased with a company's marketing dollars.
Not only are coffee mugs a practical way to store and drink coffee, especially when a person is mobile, say driving in a car, walking down the street, or even in the workplace, coffee mugs also make great gifts.
When choosing coffee mugs as gifts there are many different styles, themes, and designs that a person can choose from. Coffee mugs can also be personally designed by adding photos, and other personalized pictures. Now with the development of digital cameras and digitalized technology, creating personalized coffee mugs is much easier than it used to be. To have a coffee mug personalized, you will need to contact a professional.
