Anthony Brucale, the genius behind TFU.INFO, was at New York Comic Con Friday, taking pictures for us. Because of the amount of pictures, we’re going to post them in batches rather than have you wait for one long post to load up.
Custom Tervis Tumblers
Report by Anthony Brucale
One of the more interesting and interactive booths at NYCC was brought to us by the folks at Tervis. For a moment it seemed out of place, a company that sells tumblers and drinkware; but as made my own Comic Con-themed tumbler, it started to make sense.
What Tervis offered at NYCC was a customizable tumbler, with a number of iconic licenses in their stable, a layout was available for just about any fan; and putting it together was a lot of fun.
The process starts with simply giving your name (either at live events or online in twenty-five color choices), which they print out on your choice of one of three colors of vinyl sticker; after that, you pick out you receive the inner and outer pieces to the tumbler. Then, after receiving the exclusive NYCC internal patch and picking out one of your own (in my case, Batman), you head on over the machine station where they walk you through affixing your sticker and patches before sealing the internal cup to the external cup.
Finally, you pick out a lid and you are all set!
After giving it a wash (it’s dishwasher safe, btw), I decided the other night to give it a test run. The 16 oz.
version holds a can of soda perfectly and the lid features a sliding cover to keep you from spilling. The insulated interior kept the drink cold without the outside sweating.
What makes this different than your average tumbler is the myriad of designs and licenses Tervis carries on their site and in-person. Online, they allow you a number of customization options and if you aren’t up for making your own, they offer a ton of their own designs. Tervis currently has licenses with the big four sports leagues, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Warner Bros., NASCAR, Hallmark, and many more. (Sadly, no Hasbro license at the moment.) So swing by their website, http://www.tervis.com, or store and check them out!
