Customized Promotional Giveaways Since 1979

Promotional Water Bottles, Custom Sports Bottles

The popularity of promotional water bottles (also referred to as "sports bottles") has grown significantly over the last decade. They're convenient, inexpensive, and users like the idea of not purchasing bottled water (and adding to bottled water waste). Promotional water bottles aren't just for sports lovers, but make great giveaways to a wide variety of people and age groups. Plus, they are relatively inexpensive and make an excellent entry-level advertising gift.

Here at, we carry more than 400 different custom sports bottles, providing advertisers with lots of options to choose from.  Generally speaking, our promotional water bottles can largely be divided into two types: plastic and metal.

Plastic promotional sports water bottles are typically less expensive.  However, plastic can vary greatly because there are so many different types, so there can be significant price differences between different plastic custom sports bottles. HDPE is one of the most common and least expensive types of plastic.  Art Promos carries numerous HDPE bottles.  HDPE is highly flexible and can be recycled in most regions.

Other plastics, such as polycarbonate, are much harder and stronger types of plastics.  They tend to be easier to clean and less prone to absorbing tastes and odors.  They're also more expensive than HDPE plastics, and they may not be recyclable in some areas.  They have great consumer appeal because of their aesthetic appearance and they're also quite durable. also carries dozens of metal promotional water bottles.  The two main types of metal bottles we stock are aluminum and stainless steel.  Both stainless steel and aluminum custom sports bottles are more expensive than plastic ones, generally speaking.  They have great aesthetic appeal with consumers, and metals are less prone to absorbing tastes and odors than plastics.  Stainless steel is non-corrosive, non-porous, will resist rusting and is easy to clean.  It is also harder than aluminum.

Aluminum is typically less costly than stainless steel.  Aluminum is softer and more porous than stainless steel.  This may make it harder to clean than stainless steel.  However, it is durable and has aesthetic appeal, and because it usually costs less than stainless steel it may be more accessible to smaller advertisers with tighter budgets.

It is important to note that some plastics cannot be washed in the dishwasher.  The heat may cause them to melt or to leach.  Stainless steel and aluminum promotional water bottles can usually be washed in the dishwasher.  Some designs may be made from a combination of metal and plastic, and different washing instructions may apply to different parts.  It is always crucial that you read the manufacturer's instructions regarding any bottles washability no matter what it is made of.  All of Art Promos' custom sports bottles, whether plastic or metal, can be imprinted and in most cases they will accept any color of ink.
