How We Made Our Picks

To make our picks for the best tumblers, we broke each option down by the following criteria:

  • Features: Aside from double-wall insulation, each tumbler was judged by additional features like included straw, compatibility with cup holders, splash resistance, lid opening style, and miscellaneous perks.
  • Design: To ensure each option looks distinctive and offers versatility, we considered design specifications like available colors, exterior construction, material construction, and unique design elements.
  • Insulation time: All the best tumbler options on this list are double-walled and keep fluids cold for a minimum of several hours — or hot for a minimum of one hour)
  • Capacity: As capacity in itself isn’t an indicator of what makes the best insulated tumbler, we wanted to maintain a diverse range of sizing options, from single serving size to all-day drinkability.

What to Look for in a Tumbler

Features that make for the best tumbler for one person might not make even a good tumbler for another. To help narrow down the options to the one that’s right for you, consider these factors:

  • Size: Capacity is just one part of the equation — it’s also worth considering physical dimensions of the tumbler itself. Some of the larger options can be a bit unwieldy for daily use, while smaller options may not have enough capacity for all-day use.
  • Cost: Though each of these is available only as a bulk custom order, it’s worth considering how the cost per unit will stack up. To keep prices down, consider an option with a lower per-unit price.
  • Minimum Order: Most custom tumbler options are available for a minimum order of 12, but it can be worthwhile to check that the one you choose has a minimum order that aligns with your ordering plans.
  • Design Options: If you plan to include your company logo, and that logo includes distinctive colors, consider picking a tumbler with available color options that align with your branding.

Finding the Best Tumbler for Your Brand

Finding the best tumbler for your particular brand will be a balancing act as you consider all the factors above. You want it to be affordable, but represent your brand effectively; meanwhile you want it to have the features your market cares about while being sensitive to their usual needs.

Not sure you’re sold on a tumbler? Consider a custom water bottle. And to help people keep their fluids as cold (or hot) as possible, consider pairing your branded drinking vessel of choice with a backpack cooler bag.
