Becky W. (Mar 2019): Let me tell you the story about these stainless steel, stemless, etched wine glasses. I placed the order and with shipping and the etching it was about $9.50 a glass. Which may be a bit pricey for some kennels. Specially when you have to order 50 at a time. But this company went above and beyond. When out first set had a flaw, they owned up to their mistake and shipped us a whole new case of glasses. They’re a good size (normal sized apple for scale) and I believe they can hold 1/4-1/2 bottle of wine. And if you knew the No Balls girls, this selling point was very important. Anyway, if you’re looking for new hab, check these guys out.
Titless (June 2015): We ordered the 22oz red mugs from Custom Ink, and they looked awesome. However, the print quality was sub-par, and the design rubbed off with almost no effort. We tried the nail polish trick, but it didn’t really work. The silver lining though was with Custom Ink’s customer service. They let us keep the original order of 250 mugs and replaced them with another 250. They said they had ID’d an error in their production and that they had fixed it. So we were able to do a buy one get one free deal in the Hab, which worked out really well. They even gave us a $75 voucher as an apology. We would definitely use them again.
Elephant Tight Ass (Apr 2018): I found an amazing lady that makes customized vessels with lids! I got my husband and I’s patch images put on yeti style tumblers. Here is her link. These are 14 ounce tumblers cost us $60 ish for the two with shipping.
Anita R. (Jun 2019): Ordered some 25oz aluminum water bottles from discountmugs.com with an engraved image. The engraving is a bit more than printing but the thought was it would be better suited for the vast amount of bug spray, beer and sunscreen we wear. They had a decent coupon special going so we got the for just under $15 a piece for 25. The whole process was exhausting and underwhelming. The art set up was buggy (art department was very good however), then they provided a shipping arrival date with the ability to live track. The live track said it was on time for delivery even up to a week after the date had passed. Had to contact them twice about when it would actually be ready. Then they ‘rushed it’ which was a week and half after the original date. Then they arrived and the proof showed the engraving higher and larger than the actual product. The engraving is good, but a bit hard to see on the silver bottle (that wasn’t super surprising). After contacting them a handful of times they did refund me almost 1/3 of the cost. The bottles are good quality, good capable and don’t leak, and worth what we ended up paying for them. But I would not recommend this company. (I do recomend 4imprint.com they are stellar all around).
Whitney M. (Aug 2018): Received 30 of these custom metal mugs in less than 7 business days. Free shipping. They were about $7 each. The service was great and they look just like my design. The design was super easy to make on their site. They have tons of other vessels too. There have been tales of them falling apart, but the screws seem pretty tight. They don’t wiggle at all. We will see in the future how they hold up. Although I don’t think they are dishwasher safe by lookin at the print.
Glitz Hasher. (Dec 2017): I use Gimmees to order 14 oz. vessels (plastic steins) for Humpin H3 in San Diego CA. Other kennels in San Diego also use them. Gimmees is easy to work with. They send you proofs of the item that is perfectly produced. I received the vessels 10 days after proof approval. 200 minimum order. $1.64 each including shipping.
Triple Nipple (May 2017): I hash with a horn in my hand! Yes I do, and have been asked countless times where I acquired this lovely vessel! (It’s supposed to be for coffee). It comes in a four colors.
Now I will say it is a little pricy (12oz – $34.50, 16oz – $36.50), but I have been hashing with this vessel for almost two years now and it has been through hell and back with me. Some kennels have purchased it for drawings at events, while others just for personal use. I have slung this over my body on every trail, through shiggy, water crossings, storm drains, up mountains, and falling down mountains…. It has never failed me.
I am able to close the lid and throw it down for hash-calisthenics and not a drop spills! And as it is meant for coffee, it will keep your beverage pretty cold for about 30-45 mins (but what half mind has a beer that long?). One drawback I have found… wash this thing out after the hash as it is not easy cleaning the very bottom of the inside and wretched beer taste will follow the next time it is used because it does seal that well!
J. PI D. (Sep 2017): Island Enterprise is where I purchased our mug order of 35 mugs. They are quickly responsive and professional. This will be my 3rd mug received from them (first one retired after 5 years of campouts) but the first order I have placed.
Cheryl R.(Feb 2018): We order our wooden mugs from Island Enterprises. The quality is amazing and the customer service is top-notch. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for wood mugs.
Nichole B. (Dec 2017): Personalized down down cups (or anything that he can sandblast for that matter) brought to you by Legacy Blasting, LLC. Quick turnaround, great pricing. I have another yeti cup from him and I’ve put it in the dishwasher and it never loses the etching, which is something that is hard to find. 5 Stars company!
David B. (June 2018): This specific one came from MyFancyCraft.com, supposedly you can special order customized ones, and even if not, it’s oak so getting engravings or burnings won’t be hard to do just have to do them separately …all I gotta say is these handles are fantastic so many different gripping positions and SOOO comfortable. Real wood, stainless liners, they’re fantastic!
OneTrick Dick (July 2017): Everyone loves plastic mugs for events .. but these guys were great when we ordered the Utica Better Than Nothing mugs. They were great at putting a not great logo onto the mug and getting a preview picture. Even better, they had 22 oz mugs instead of the 16 oz kind.
Prices were reasonable and they were super responsive. Pricing ends up being highly variable based on what features you want and size. These were 231 total for 100 – 1.62 per mug plus a $40 set up fee plus $29 shipping. Other options were cheaper and more expensive on the site and they do run promotions from time to time.
Pamela M. (May 2017): We ordered a 1L barrel mug (VESSEL) through Red Head Barrels. They seemed to have the fastest turn around (1-2 days shipped), other barrel vessel websites had a 8-10 days shipped.We were really happy with the quality of this vessel. They are a bit more expensive ($70ish all in) but it was a specialty vessel for our Tyrant! We ordered this for our beloved tyrant of LH3 who recently hit 100 hares for the group while haring on his birthday! Our hash is only 6 or 7 years old and we only meet once every other week. First hasher to do so in Louisville’s kennel!
Pamela M. (May 2017):Unbreakable vessels for your drinking pleasure! Can be customized for your kennel/event. A variety of sizes and colors: pints, half pints, shot glasses, tumbler.
Silipint has been on of our favorites. Hashers like the fact that they are light weight and flexible, squishy-will survive being in a back pack (this has been tested) Non-breakable. BPA free, dishwasher/microwave safe (I have never tried though).The order process is easy, ask for a hash discount.When I placed my first order, the minimum quantity was lower. A little bit disappointed that they increased the minimum quantity, however we have plans to order some more for the kennel. They offer a variety of colors and sizes.
The order process was easy and the sales staff were great to work with and they responded quickly to any questions that I had. The website states that they can be used for hot drinks as well, I did not like the taste of my tea, the hubby said he didn’t notice any taste difference for his coffee. I recommend to use for cold drinks.My first order was shot glasses for our camp out last year and we gave away at our tent for the shot stop.
Tegan J. (Dec 2017): I wanted to do a shout-out to Silipint and specifically their Glow in the Dark vessels. We used them a few years back for our summer event give away, they were super easy to work with and there’s a discount for hashers. We ended up doing a mixed order of I think 50 pints total made up of three different glow colored vessels (at the time pink, blue, and green were our options, it looks like there is now a yellow). They’ve since added some really neat looking color options for non-glow too.
The pint glasses look great, have held up great over the years, and actually glow the color of the silicone (rather than all glowing a generic green). They also glow bright and don’t take much to charge… they’re quite bright when they’re left out on the kitchen counter and we’re stumbling around at 3 in the morning :-).
Great folks, easy to work with, super happy with the product. I will also note that I have seen hashers drill/cut a small hole near the top of their silipint and hook a carabiner through it to really good success for extended use. Actually, I have to state a correction, b/c I looked at the emails. We did an order of 36. Minimum 12 of each color since we wanted all three at the time glow colors. Unfortunately I can’t get a good photo of it glowing (and I’m not sure where my spouse stashed our green one) – but here is the Blue glow vessel, 16 oz, normal lighting.
Becky W. (Feb 2018):Hello! Yep, I ordered for the No Balls kennel. They were a great company to work with. One drawback is that you have to order so many(72) as a minimum. Thankfully, I sweet talked them into doing a half order. It would be a decade for us to sell 72 silipints. We still have a dozen, and we ordered them (36) 3 years ago.
Emily L. (Feb 2018): Yes!! I’d recommend getting them as hab for a weekend or event. We had a lot of interest but it’s been hard to sell the 70 that weren’t pre-ordered. The main complaint was there is no handle. They’re super easy to deal with, we get a pretty good deal cause they’re familiar with hashers, and there are lids now!
Alex D. (Feb 2018): We bought the 12 oz ones that look sort of like rocks glasses. They’re cool, but it’s kind of a pita to fit a whole can of beer in one. If I did it again, I’d go with the pint glass. Then again: most people have more vessels than they know what to do with. It could be a tough sell for hab, without a good gimmick.
Kristi S. (Feb 2018): Ive got them for a campout gimmie, and we did an analversary gimmie of their shot glasses for our largest local hash. Great company to work with, the guy I dealt with is a hasher, excellent product. And the glow in the dark works really well!
