If you’re shopping for an outdoor enthusiast this holiday season, it’s hard to go wrong with rugged stainless steel YETI ‘Rambler’ drinkware. And what’s better than a YETI mug? A customized YETI mug. Or a customized tumbler or bottle — even a rugged insulated wine tumbler.
For the text option, which has some terms and conditions around copyrighted material, you can choose from eight fonts.
The easy online ordering system does limit you by line length, giving you up to five lines to complete your text. The different font choices also impact how many words will fit on a line. You might be able to fit somewhere around 45 words on one side, but for best results and readability, you’ll want to choose a relatively short amount of text.
For monograms, you can choose from six styles — just be aware that three-initial monogram styles place your last name initial in the middle in a larger size to indicate that it’s the most important. If you want to avoid the conventional three-initial monogram style, the monograms also work well with two initials. Try the hexagram outline option with just two initials — it turns out pretty cool.
YETI is non-specific about the time it will take to customize your drinkware but does indicate that its custom production rolls on a first-ordered, first-served model.
One of the ways YETI has expanded its line of products is by developing rich color options, as well as seasonal and limited-edition colors. Apple made this practice mainstream for major brands and high-end products, and YETI’s doing it as well — and probably better than — most everyone else these days.
Unfortunately, YETI excludes its special designs and custom logos from this promotion. For example, National Parks images will cost an extra $10 while Hunting or Fishing images will set you back $5.
YETI also will let you upload your own logo if you have one, but that includes a $10 logo setup charge and then $5 per usage.
YETI also offers MLB, NHL, NASCAR, and collegiate sports logo options if you’re shopping for a hardcore fan — just be sure to scroll down to find the custom collection you want on YETI’s Custom Drinkware page.
Meanwhile, if you like the idea of a YETI gift, consider the YETI Roadie 24 — it’s a rugged and super-efficient do-it-all road-tripping cooler that’s now available in a bunch of sweet colors. Read our YETI Roadie 24 Review to learn more.
