For a little over two years now, Xplorer Maps Co-Founder and President Greg Robitaille has worked diligently with numerous industry partners in the hopes of sourcing a new manufacturer for our 16 OZ. ceramic coffee mugs. Xplorer Maps was primarily looking for enhanced custom color; the addition of original artwork inside the mug; classy branding accents; and superior print quality that would help ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
This exhaustive search has involved more than a handful of dedicated team members and resulted in "production" samples from more than a dozen different factories; both domestic and overseas. Our graphic design team has put in literally hundreds of hours tweaking and perfecting each and every individual map mug design to best "represent" the specific national park, state and/or travel destination featured.
Due to a growing number of requests over the past few years from both our wholesale partners and retail customers, Xplorer Maps decided the time was right to also introduce a new line of matching espresso shot glasses. Each shot glass showcases our unique, hand-drawn, original map art that translates amazingly well to this product.
Not surprisingly, our customer feedback was absolutely spot on and the time is now officially upon us to roll out more than 35 new mug and shot designs. We are excited to share these new products with our 500+ accounts nationwide as well as our retail customers from around the world. Additionally, there will be 10+ new designs coming out later this summer to complete the roll out.
We are so excited and proud to add these new products to our growing line of map-themed gifts for travel and outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. A huge "THANK YOU" to everyone that has played a part and contributed to this process of collaboration. The wait is well worth it!!
