Nowadays, there are a lot of ways for you to advertise your products.

For restaurants and take out food joints, the best advertising vehicle is to customize the plastic cups they use for the drinks to go with the food.

People will be walking around bringing along the cups with your logo on it.  Think about this as a walking advertisement as surely, people who see the cup will get curious as to what the logo stands for. 

For those who prefer to give durable and reusable plastic cups, brand retention will be easily achieved. It would be easier for your clients to remember you and your company because they would be seeing the logo every time that the cup is used. The association between the logo and the product should be very strong so as to have the user think about your product every time they see the logo on the cup.

These cups are fairly inexpensive and some even already include the cost of the printing of the logo with the low price that they offer.  Also, it is easy to get discounts as you would most probably order and purchase this in bulk.
