If you haven’t considered as part of your marketing mix to advertise your business, event or product, then you really are missing an opportunity. Without doubt, the beer mat is the most cost effective marketing tool there is taking account of it's appeal, longevity, impact and low unit cost. But, don’t just take our word for it, take a quick rummage around our Beer Mat Gallery
and you will get a feel for the type of businesses and organisations that have embraced our beer mats as part of their campaigns.
Look at any market sector and there is every chance our beer mats have featured in a campaign. Sports is one example; we have manufactured and printed beer mats directly, or on behalf of third parties for; rugby clubs, national football teams, golf clubs, tennis and squash clubs, rowing clubs, diving clubs, test matches, football fixtures, through to product sales of sporting equipment and accessories. This list of endorsements for beer mat advertising is too comprehensive to recount here but, this is an indication into how beer mats have become a part of the marketing mix and arguably, a part of the advertising media landscape!
Unlike flyers which are invariably discarded without even being read, real beer mats are functional and serve a useful purpose. Added to which, an attractive design and punch message will virtually guarantee that your message is read and your mats retained. It is worth reiterating that with a beer mat, because you can have a different design on the front and reverse sides, meaning you have the opportunity to deliver your message on the one side and include a call to action on the other. Versatility doen't even descrive it!
Our beer mats are litho printed, which means it is possible to create the most stunning designs, in full colour, where visual impact is virtually guaranteed. Even the early doubters have had to accept that beer mats are innexpensive, practical and, more likely than not, one of the few pieces of printed media that is retained for any period of time. We are delighted to confirm that the majority of the early sceptics have actually become Thirstys 'regulars' and they wouldn’t consider running any campaign if it was not supported in part by our beer mats.
It is impossible to define what a typical beer mat customer is or which sector they come from because our own market is so diverse as evidenced by the beer mats contained in our image gallery
. We have manufacturered on behalf of individuals seeking a few beer mats for a Birthday party, through to a pizza company branding their product and even a coach company looking to use a long term media device for delivering their bus timetables. To sum up, for less than the cost 20 printed mugs, you could have bought 1,000 beer mats printed on both sides. And...35 printed mugs would be the equal to around 10,000 beer mats. This provides a clear insight as to why so many organisations are using beer mats as part of thier advertising or marketing campaign.

Our beer mat board is sourced from suppliers that adhere to the sustainable forest programme. For every tree that is felled, at least one seedling is planted in it’s place.
We use vegetable based printing inks rather than the cheaper conventional petroleum based ink. Much lower emissions during the drying process and simplifies the recycling process.
Our beer mats are 100% recyclable and can be placed in the paper or cardboard waste bin. We practice what we preach by recycling all our board skeletons and related waste.
