Promotional mugs come in many different types. By far the most popular is the Durham mug. So called because of the popularity of earthenware pots amongst the earliest inhabitants of the City of Durham. The Durham mug is a traditional mug design. As such it is also the most cost effective mug to use for your promotion, starting at around £1. Other popular choices are the far more modern insulated travel mugs which come in aluminium or plastic. If you want something different then try the frosty mug. This is a hollow plastic mug filled with coolant liquid. Keep it in the freezer. Then pour in your iced tea for a drink that will stay cool in hot weather. Another temperature related mug is the WoWMug which has a heat sensitive coating that reveals a hidden picture when the mug is hot.
Certainly check out how the lid fits in the travel mug. The most customary way that travel mug lids secure to the mug is a plastic insert with rubber gaskets. The gaskets help hold the lid on and thwart coffee from splashing out. If you drop your mug, one of these types of lids may come off. The least likely to come off lids are screw on. They still call for some sort of gasket to thwart leaks, but the lid itself will stay put. You may have to do some intense shopping around to find a stainless steel mug with a screw on lid, but they are out there.
Nearly all thermal mugs are made of plastic or stainless steel, although there are glass and ceramic thermal mugs available. For travel though, it's best to stick with the first two types. Plastic mugs are generally less expensive, but have some drawbacks. Plastic tends to retain the flavor of whatever you have in it, so if you use your coffee mug for a different beverage, it may give it a bit of a coffee taste. Stainless steel doesn't have this problem (at least if you clean your mug regularly!), so if you plan on using your thermal mug for more than one type of beverage, stainless steel is the way to go. Plastic is difficult to break, but overall isn't as durable as stainless steel, so a plastic mug may not last as long. Although usually a bit more expensive, stainless steel thermal mugs are generally best. One exception to this is if you tend to lose your mug. In this case, a cheaper plastic mug is probably the best choice!
