Why Buy Promotional Shot Glasses?

Promotional shot glasses are unique giveaway items that are sure to put your company, brand, or corporate message in a positive light. Consider that most people use shot glasses at bars, parties, or other fun places, so putting your logo on a shot glass will align your company with fun and good times!

Beyond imbuing your company with youthful exuberance, custom shot glasses are good giveaway items for bars and restaurants looking to boost their businesses. They also make great favors for bachelor and bachelorette parties or even at the big day itself! What’s more, you could get some imprinted shot glasses for your graduation party.

Finally, many people also like to collect shot glasses, so a shot glass engraved with your company’s logo could become a collector’s item! How cool is that?

How to Buy Personalized Shot Glasses


Before deciding which customized shot glasses to buy, you should first consider how you plan on your audience using them.

For example, if you operate a bar or restaurant, you may want to go with one of our shot glasses made from glass. On the other hand, if you are planning to use the shot glasses for a bachelor party or wedding reception, one of our plastic shot glasses would be a more cost-effective option. If you are thinking of getting some custom shot glasses for a company function, go with one of shot glasses with an optional halo to bring a touch of class to your next corporate party or fundraiser. We also offer shot glass sets that would be perfect as a corporate gift to your top clients.


While the majority of the shot glasses available from Deluxe are made from glass, we do have a few plastic custom shot glasses for you to choose from.


When it comes to promotional shot glasses, this is perhaps the most important decision. Deluxe carries shot glasses in many shapes in sizes, ranging from 1-ounce capacity up to 4-ounce capacity. Single ounce shot glasses are the most common, so if you want your promotional item to stand among the rest of a collector’s cache of glasses, you may want to go with one of the larger options.


The imprint method varies by the shot glass. Most plastic shot glasses as well as some glass shot glasses are imprinted using silk-screen. If you’re looking for something a little splashier, we also offer shot glasses that can take a full-color imprint through full-color sublimation. While most of our shot glasses only take one color imprints, we do have a few that can take multiple colors, so be sure to check the description of the item you’re interested in to see whether this is a possibility. Finally, you will notice that some of the glass shot glasses are pictured with an optional halo around the brim. There is a small up-charge for this feature, so be aware of that should you decide to include it on your order.


Most customized shot glasses available from Deluxe require minimum orders of at least 100 glasses, but there are some available at slightly lower minimums than that, so be sure to check the description of the item you’re interested in to confirm the minimum quantity.
