Pulpboard Coasters: What You Should Know

Regardless of your business, custom drink coasters are a perfect way to advertise your brand’s name. When we talk about coasters—also known as coaster board or a beermat—most only have a basic understanding of the product. If you are looking to buy promotional pulpboard coasters for your company, special event, and festival or even for a wedding, here are basics to know about.

Differing Quality of Pulpboard Coasters

Specifically designed for heavy restaurant and bar use, we source our pulpboard material from authentic European spruce trees. This makes them extremely durable and highly absorbent. Introducing moisture to low quality coasters will cause them to warp easily and fall apart rather quickly. Additionally, laminated or coated coaster types don’t have absorption capacity at all. Don’t let lesser imitations fool you.

Thickness of Pulpboard Coasters

Of the many things to consider is thickness. When deciding on the thickness for your promotional drink coasters, there are some questions you should ask:

  • Who will be using them?
  • What are their intended uses?
  • Where will they be used?
  • How long will you need them?
  • What type of graphics will be used?

The thicker the coasters, the more moisture they will absorb and the longer they will last. Hence, you should choose accordingly. No matter what you choose, we offer the opportunity to order full color products with any graphics of your choice.

Size and Shape

The standard sizes in America for promotional bar or restaurant coasters are 3.5 and 4 inch, with the latter being the most common. Beyond the standard circle or square shaped coaster, we manufacture all kinds of custom shapes and sizes. They have the ability to ignite a conversation when used as cross promotional medium for product launches, especially drinks, menu items and any group parties.


After choosing the size and shape, you need to decide on the quantity of drink coasters you will need. As a rule of thumb, the larger the drink coaster order, the lower the cost per coaster.
