If you are looking for some inspiration for your beer mat design it is worth taking a look at our Beer Mat Gallery
to see some of the campaigns that our beer mats have been used for. You can also get a feel for the vast array of businesses, organisations and agencies that have used beer mats as part of their marketing mix.
Our standard beer mats are 94mm square with rounded corners or 94mm diameter (rounds) so this is a good starting point. We have provided some Artwork Specifications
, as well as Design Templates
to get you started.
Of course, depending on the type of product, service or message you want to deliver, you may want to consider other options such as; non-standard sizes, custom shapes
, spot colours or perhaps a little hot foil stamping. The options are there and each should be considered based on merit versus cost. To provide you with some insight, we have produced beer mats in the shape of apples and pears for a cider company; a non-standard sized beer mats for breweries (and others) and a print enhanced with hot foil for a special wedding anniversaries. Every designer will have their own ideas and expectations and our aim is to place some of the options available to you.
We can print our beer mat board in sizes up to B1. So if you want a something more robust (1.2mm fibre board) for a show or presentation, then let us know by using our Quotation Request Form
. Or perhaps bespoke placemats for a restaurant or conference?
Taking account of all these options, it is worth noting that more than 90% of the beer mats we manufacture are 94mm square or round and the impact is generated by a stunning design and, of course, the quality of the print and board! Therefore, we encourage our customers to engage with us at each step of the process, after all, it is also in our interest to see your campaign succeed. We have 20 years experience in producing beer mats, so we can offer a little guidance and reassurance as and when required.
There are two sides to a beer mat (of course!) which means that you can have two different designs, front and reverse. This affords you the opportunity to, for example, have one side explaining your proposition and the other as a meaningful call to action. Alternative, one side can include the wow factor and the other the detail. Just remember, War & Peace doesn’t really cut it on a beer mat. As suggested above, it is worth taking a look at our Artwork Specifications
before you get started.
The bottom line is we love a challenge and the more creative a design or design concept, the more excited we get. So don’t let practicalities get in the way of your design, speak to us first and we will advise you on the best way to achieve your objective. Even if your ideas are a little off the wall, we will work with you to find a solution or workable compromise.
