Custom Drink Coaster Types and Buying Guide

Add to that are their unique looks, shade, and texture, which can channel a mood, a place or themed inspiration, and interesting pattern to your tables. Shop confidently with this quick rundown of the custom drink coasters types and buying guide to aid you in shopping:
Personalized Glass CoastersHow they quickly accentuate tabletops with an air of sophistication makes personalized glass coasters a popular pick for weddings, favors, drink mats in fine table settings, and personalized gifts for all occasions. Here on GlassCoasterStore.com, there are at least three (3) types of glass that you can use for your custom glass coasters and these are transparent glass, frosted glass, and colored glass. All of which can be painted or etched with your design and is available in classic shapes, like round, square, and heart.
As drink mats, it helps to remember that glass is a non-absorbent material and resistant to thermal shock and mechanical shock to a certain extent only. Add to that, glass coasters are best to use with stemware or drinks that do not sweat a lot, like wine. However, when using them for sweaty drinks, like beer, we highly recommend having table napkins to wipe at hand to avoid drenching their surface with moisture, which may cause your glass coaster to stick to the bottom of the glass and inadvertently drop and break on the table. Alternatively, you can pick up the more absorbent types of drink coasters, instead, like the cork or natural stone coasters.
Personalized Paper Coasters
Due to their abundance, environment-friendly material, and usually low absorbency, personalized paper coasters are your cost-savvy answer to drink coasters that will have to be used for one or a few uses, although select varieties, like the premium cardboard types, are strong enough to handle repeated uses. As paper can be cut so easily and designed in so many ways, like with a painting, scribble, or glued embellishment, personalized paper coasters can be found in a wide array of shapes and offer myriad design possibilities.
Custom Pulp Board Coasters
The classic choice for beer mats, custom pulp board coasters are highly popular in bars, pubs, and restaurants as they are easy to customize, durable, firm, and reusable. For your beer party, they are the best pick for giving your home or cocktail bar a beer pub feel.
Personalized Sandstone Coasters
Gifted with excellent absorbency, personalized sandstone coasters can hold about 1/4 cup of liquid and as liquids naturally evaporate from them, they can dry on their own their and stay functional for years with minimum maintenance. Typically heavy, custom-painted, and backed with cork for added absorbency, they are an investment-worthy choice for gifts, for your home, office, party, and business. Having them around, you can always rest on the fact that you can enjoy a drink without the after-task of cleaning your drink coaster.
Personalized Slate Coasters
Made of natural stone, personalized slate coasters are easily recognized for their smooth, uneven surface and jagged edges. Highly resistant to sudden temperature changes, they are ideal for protecting tabletops and fragile counters from the hot temperature and liquid stain of hot and cold drinks, respectively. They can be painted or engraved and can channel an earthen, modern or rustic look to a tabletop. Keep your personalized slate coasters' natural color in tip-top condition with a regular polish of a mineral oil.
Personalized Cork Coasters
A popular match for wine glasses, personalized cork coasters are found in varying thickness and this, in addition to the component of natural cork in their material, dictates their ability to absorb the liquid spills and moisture from your drink. For added strength and to protect their edges from flaking off, you can glue your personalized cork coasters to a board or tile. Cleaning them also requires just wiping the liquid off their surface with a damp cloth and then following the latter with a wipe using a dry cloth.
Customized Rubber Coasters
Basically, like rubber mats, customized rubber coasters, including silicone rubber coasters, are bendable and thick, thus they can act like a soft cushion for your fragile tabletop and drinkware simultaneously. Non-slip, resistant to oils and greases, waterproof, easy to wash and dry, and heat-resistant, certain customized rubber coasters can even withstand high temperatures of up to 230°C or 450°F.
Personalized Stone Coasters
Typically made of the same materials that used for countertops, like marble, slate, and granite, personalized stone coasters are a great tool for extending the awesome looks of your stone countertop to your dinner tables. Great for hot and cold drinks, they are also durable, easy to clean, highly resistant to shock and breakage caused by sudden changes in temperature, and can be painted or engraved with your custom design. As they merely inherit the porosity of their natural stone material, certain stone coaster types are, thus, more absorbent than the others, with granite and sandstone coasters as the least and most absorbent types, respectively.
Personalized Ceramic/Tile Coasters
Personalized ceramic coasters are basically a product of ceramic tiles that are used as medium for crafts and sublimation printing. As drink coasters, they are non-absorbent but because they are heavy, they do not pose the same danger of glass coasters being lifted by the drinking glass once drenched with moisture. While ideal for hot and cold drinks, ceramic tile coasters have medium resistance to high heat. They are an ideal match to your ceramic drinkware and can be wiped or washed easy to clean.
Personalized Leather Coasters
Durable, versatile, waterproof, and heat-resistant, personalized leather coasters are a great pick for at least three (3) reasons: They can serve as the stylish complement to your table's leather chair, they are the perfect personalized coaster gift for men and women with sophisticated taste, and the ultimate drink coaster type that demonstrates your taste for class and luxury. Personalized leather drink coasters are usually expensive and may have their design printed, embossed, or engraved on their natural or faux material.

Wood coasters can be made from different types of wood such as maple, cherry, walnut, olive, oak and many more. They can be a natural and durable drink coaster to use at home and even at your office. These wood coasters can withstand hot or cold beverages. The problem with wood material is that they can get burn easily and can be infested by insects.
Custom Printed Plastic Coasters

Personalized plastic coasters can be colorful and fun giveaways that you can share with your guests and friends. You can have your designs printed on the plastic coasters.

1. You have to decide on a theme so will you know what to buy and what to do.
2. Choose the kind of material that you want to make as your coasters. There are lots to choose from such as felt fabric, cork board or tiles/ceramics. The first two mentioned materials are quite easy to use since it can be cut by scissors alone and so easy to find in many craft stores.

3. After choosing your material, you need to know how many drink coasters that you need to make.
4. Decide on what shape you want. You will need craft knife and cutting mat. For rectangle shaped coasters you need to use a straight edge ruler to guide you in making one. While for the round shape, you may use a compass, or any round cylindrical object such as mouth of the cup or glass or even the roll of a tape to guide you in making a round shape on your material.
5. After cutting all the coasters into your desired shape, you may use acrylic paint to decorate your cork board coaster or you may sew some beautiful designs into your felt material.
6. If you want to make your personalized drink coasters more attractive and unique, you may cover your chosen material with a top that is waterproof and can be cut into a shape flat enough to balance the glass on it. It will be nice to use a material that is washable since it is likely to spill some drinks sometimes over into it.
7. You can also have a Coaster top made of cardboard or fiber material as long as you have to make them waterproof for a better drink coaster favor.
8. You also have a choice to cover them with varnish or shellac for a thicker coat and better protection of your coaster against spillage.
9. For more personalized design you may have your pictures instead of painting it. All you have to do is to cut the picture according to the shape of your drink coasters then use a glue to stick the picture on it. Let it dry before laminating it.

10. You may also use ceramics or clay instead of cork board or fabric felt. They are also good to make coasters.
