Guinness Coaster: Good Things Come from Clever Optics

Here’s a great use of a simple promotional product and a simple optical trick from Guiness. Instead of going with the typical promo beer mug, It’s a custom drink coaster that reveals a message – “Good things come to those who wait.” – reflected in the drinker’s glass. When trying to reach a large audience, as B-to-C companies must, a low cost per impression is a budgetary necessity. Luckily, in a case like this, an inexpensive product can have a big impact. Even something as simple as a disposable coaster can become an interactive promo, or tie in to a larger campaign. Promos like this prove that when it comes to creating a successful promotion creativity can trump budget limitations, and clever imprinting can turn an everyday item into something more than meets the eye.
