30 Ultra Cool Coaster Designs

September 2, 2014

Coasters are functional tools for marketing your brand; not only do they project tables and keep bar tops dry, they promote your company every time a glass is lifted for a drink. That’s why major breweries routinely market their brands on bar coasters, typically given to bars and restaurants free-of-charge because they know the power of brand repetition. The most iconic coasters, however, are typically printed by establishment owners themselves, and patrons routinely take them home for display or personal use. When you develop a stellar coaster design, your brand power increases exponentially because your drink coasters earn third-party validation and word-of-mouth marketing when customers take them home and show their friends. If you want to print coasters with powerful brand presence, find inspiration in the following 30 ultra cool coaster designs.
