Custom Logo Water Bottles: How To Choose The Best Type For Your Brand

May 18, 2023 | Custom Drinkware

Just about every marketing or HR professional knows that custom logo water bottles are one of the most popular swag items there is. Everyone seems to own at least one promotional water bottle and according to a recent study, promotional drinkware is one of the top 10 promotional products.  On average,  it’s kept by recipients for at least one year!  But with so many options available so you must select carefully.

To help you choose the best water bottle match for your brand and promotion we’ve put together this quick guide.

1. Promotional Plastic Water Bottles

Promotional plastic water bottles are the classic choice that never goes out of style. Lightweight and economical, they are available in a multitude of styles and colors.  They are a good choice for outdoor activities such as sports events and cause walks and bike rides.  Their large wrap-around imprint area allows you to display your brand message and spread it effectively without breaking the bank. However, they might not appeal to everyone due to the ongoing concerns about plastic use. But they are reusable, which is good for the environment, and many are made of recycled materials.


  • Cost-effective 
  • Lightweight and durable
  • Wide range of colors
  • Large print area


  • Lower perceived value compared to stainless steel or glass bottles.
  • Can raise concerns about plastic use

2. Logo Stainless Steel Water Bottles

When you’re looking for a higher-end look, branded stainless steel water bottles are your best bet. They offer excellent insulation, keeping drinks cold for extended periods. They are long-lasting and sleek-looking. They do cost more than their plastic counterparts, and customization is more limited, but their premium feel makes up for that. They are a great choice as welcome gifts for new hires, employee appreciation gifts, and new client gifts, among other occasions.


  • Excellent insulation
  • Premium feel
  • Durable and long-lasting 


  • Higher cost 
  • Limited customization options compared to plastic bottles

3. Custom Glass Water Bottles

For those who prefer a purer taste, branded glass water bottles are a preferred choice. Glass is the safest reusable water bottle material because it’s chemical-free.  It’s made from natural materials that won’t leach harmful chemicals into your water. They’re not as resilient as plastic or steel and more prone to breakage, but there is nothing better when it comes to purity of taste and hygiene. And there are some styles that come with rubbery or neoprene holders that help protect from breakage. 


  • Purity of taste 
  • Chemical free
  • Eco-friendly
  • Easier to keep clean


  • Must be handled with care.
  • Higher cost compared to other types of water bottles
  • Fewer color options

4. Promotional Aluminum Water Bottles

Aluminum can be recycled over and over. Water bottles made of this material are lightweight, durable, and available in a variety of colors.  Promotional aluminum water bottles are a hit among active audiences because they are easy to carry. The only caveat? They react to acidic liquids and they might give a slight metallic taste to the water.


  • Lightweight and durable
  • Wide range of styles and color options 
  • Water chills quickly


  • Potential for metallic taste 
  • Reacts to certain liquids
