What is Coaster and Why We Do Coaster Printing

Posted by Bold Commerce on

Let's get straight to the point...

First thing first,

What is Coaster?

Your drink plate or cover (also know as "alas minuman" in Malay) 😉

Further explanation on the word "coaster":

Coaster origin as a small tray (moving around on wheels) for holding a decanter (wine bottles or jug) etc.

"Coaster" also refers to a person or thing that coasts (where "coast" means a line that forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake) so that's probably how coaster derivation comes from... wait where is this going?!

Basically, coaster is a boundary between your drink & the table.

Are we clear?

And let's not dig deep into "why is a coaster called a coaster" because that's required a whole post already (coming soon *probably*)

And why are drink coasters called coasters? Like roller coaster??

Shouldn't we just call them "plate"?

We should definitely discuss that in a later post (though we already posted about these facts on coaster).


Let's continue!


Moving on from coaster definition...

It's safe to say that synonym for coaster drink is either drink plate or beer mat. Or beverage holder. Though saying it out loud sounds like a lot of words for something that simply hold your drink.

So "coaster" is perfect!


The perfect match to your coffee mug!

If you have personalized mug then the perfect match is personalized coaster! Place your drink on top of your ceramic coaster and worry no more about water stains or ring mark.

Our coaster: made of sand, silt and natural clay.

These are the best drink coaster material since they are more environmental friendly compared to synthetic clay that are harmful to the environment and not suitable for food and beverages product.

Our ceramic coaster is also made using finer particle technology to produce high water absorption and smoother surface coaster.


Saving the surface

Let's talk surface!

The water condensation from your cold drinks either leave behind a watery ring mark or sticky stains from the sugar liquid. Having a coaster as your drink mat will protect your table surface and save you from all the fussy leftover.

Your absorbent drink coasters are also useful when it comes to large party. One less thing to worry about when your guests are all provided with a few beverage coasters.

Spread them around your house. The coffee table, work desk, corner table, basically any places where anyone could landed their beverages!


Stay clean with your drink coaster!

If you're still wondering...

"Are coasters necessary?" or
"Is it important?" or even
"Is there any purpose of coasters?" 

Yes, people. Yes, yes and yes.

Utilized your printed coasters at homes and restaurants.

Useful as a place for beverages to be set down, coaster also helps to prevent damage to the tables from condensation.

Utilized them at your work place as well. Or place one near your working space.

There are also...

Clear glass coasters, plain blank glass coasters, round glass coasters and many other marbles or see-through coasters. Which is irresistible and great...

BUT... There are limitation on printing them.

Translate: you can't really go crazy (and wild) with them precious glass coasters.

Why not?!

Glass coasters or see-through coasters are great for decoration but not really useful in terms of water absorption.

Looks good, feels nice but your dripping cold frappucino is going to stain the table and that is not fully fulfilling a coaster's purpose. And it's fragile too.

You get what it means, right?

Back to ceramic coaster printing!
