When and Where: The Mug


 
Advertising,Website Promotion,Business
The mug has been around long that we forget when and where did it originate. The mug as we know of it today has been a formidable addition to the corporate gift item go-to list with its usefulness and wide logo area which are both good signs of good brand recall when it comes to gift items. Today, we take a trip down memory lane and learn where this very useful device first came about. The Clay Mug

The earliest records or a mug being used was during the time around 6500-3000 BCE with the invention of the potter's wheel. Although there are other usage of the same style dating earlier, the first "real" mug was made of clay, it had the handle and everything generated by the potter's wheel because it was very easy to create. The only setback for these clay mugs was that they had a very wide rim which were unfit to any mouth.

The Metal Mug

With the evolution of metalwork, man soon refined the clay mug and made the rims thinner so that it could be used by everyone. But with the steady development of metal work, soon fostering in a new age. The clay mug was eventually abandoned and the metal mug was born. The earliest one was made of bronze and then later on silver and gold.

The Porcelain Mug

Still valued up to today, while the West enjoyed their metal mugs, China had other things in mind, with their discovery of porcelain they have devised a mug that had a thinner rim and can be used with both hot and cold drinks. This was brought to the known world's attention by Chinese seafaring traders that roamed the known world bringing in their goods and exchanging them for goods from other countries.

The Travel Mug

It can be said that during the early days, people didn't have the luxury of bringing a filled mug wherever they went because back then they supposedly didn't have any lids to close the mug and the beverage in. Wouldn't it be bad if you wanted to drink a hot drink while for example, climbing a mountain but you couldn't without stopping and sitting down for a drink? The travel mug did that when it was first introduced in the 1980s and from that time on it was used by anyone who was on the move and suddenly felt thirsty, mountain climbers, joggers, even the military uses travel mugs. But nonetheless, the travel mug was only an addition to the history because today in present time it coexists with this one...

The Ceramic Mug

Wouldn't it be awkward if you had to use a travel mug early in the morning just to have your fix of coffee? it would be. Hence, the old design is still intact and it comes in the form of the ceramic mug. Using modern materials, a ceramic mug can hold both hot and cold drinks and has a "just-right" rim to make sure that anyone could drink from it. With an unlimited number of customization options for the ceramic mug, it stretches as far as the imagination.

These custom gifts exhibit the extensive changes that the mug has been through from its early formations as clay earthenware to the ceramic creative device that it is today. It can come with the face of a cat, a dog, some even have cookie holders! So the mug has come a long way from being just a simple means to consume hot beverages to a trendy gift item. a perfect corporate gift.
