Take Location Into Account

As we mentioned above, people take their water bottles with them almost everywhere, including:

  • The gym
  • The office
  • School
  • Home
  • Yoga class
  • Outdoor activities
  • Children’s events
  • Sporting events
  • Meetings
  • Conferences
  • Vacations

A basic water bottle will surely make do in any of those settings. You can show some extra thoughtfulness, though, by selecting personalized water bottles that are particularly appropriate for certain places.

For example:

  • Plastic, single-use, easy squeeze or collapsible bottles are perfect for sporting events, conferences and children’s events.

  • Lightweight or collapsible bottles with clips or carabiners are perfect for outdoor activities and vacations.

  • Aesthetically pleasing, eco-friendly and high-quality bottles are perfect for yoga or fitness classes and important meetings.

  • Basic and durable bottles are perfect for general home, school and office use — everyone needs to stay hydrated!

Select the Right Material

As water bottles have become increasingly popular, an ever-growing array of materials has become available. The bottle above, for example, is crafted of both durable BPA-free plastic and glass.

Here, we’ll take a look at all the major material categories. That way, you can select the branded water bottle that’s best for your needs.

Clear plastic water bottle with white logo, blue glass lining, silver screw-on lid and silver base

BPA-Free Plastic

BPA refers to bisphenol A, an industrial material that’s commonly used to manufacture certain types of plastic and resin.

As the health risks of BPA exposure have come to light, a growing number of health-conscious people have begun to seek out BPA-free products. This is especially true when it comes to water bottles.

This doesn’t mean you have to swear off of plastic custom water bottles, however. All of Crestline’s plastic water bottles are BPA-free.

One of the most popular brands of BPA-free plastic is Tritan, which is used in many of our best-selling water bottles.

Tritan plastic doesn’t contain bisphenols of any kind (including BPA), and is:

  • Crystal clear, and won’t dull over time.

  • Durable, shatter-resistant, dent- and ding-proof and designed for repeated washings (even in the dishwasher).

  • Tested by third-party labs to ensure that it’s free of all bisphenols and doesn’t cause any hormonal activity.

  • Stylish, with vibrant colors and a glass-like look and feel.

Even if you don’t choose to purchase water bottles made from Tritan plastic, we offer many other BPA-free options.

Just be aware that some other types of BPA-free plastic:

  • Can be unsuited for hot liquids.
  • Can be dull or become scratched over time.
  • May not be recyclable, depending on the type of plastic they’re made from.


Aluminum is a silver-gray metal that’s the third most abundant element in the earth’s crust.

That abundance makes it incredibly affordable, even though it’s just as durable as many other more expensive metals.

Like all other materials, aluminum water bottles come with both pros and cons.

Pros of aluminum water bottles:

  • Low-cost.
  • Lightweight
  • Rust-proof.
  • 100 percent recyclable.

Cons of aluminum water bottles:

  • Not dishwasher safe.
  • Dents easily.
  • Little to no insulation — this means they’re prone to condensation and aren’t effective at retaining heat or cold.
  • Can make liquid taste metallic.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is a form of steel that’s categorized as a steel alloy. This means that it’s composed of other types of metal in addition to steel.

The most important of these is chromium, which gives stainless steel its resistance to rust, corrosion and tarnishing.

Stainless steel is one of the most popular custom water bottle materials, and for good reason. The pros of stainless steel water bottles include:

  • Durable and resistant to many forms of damage that steel is susceptible to.

  • Dishwasher safe.

  • Won’t pick up and retain flavors or stains, even if they’re filled with coffee, alcohol, tea, smoothies or other flavored or colorful beverages.

  • Provides excellent heat and cold retention when double-layered (insulated).

  • 100 percent recyclable.

Stainless steel water bottles also have some drawbacks, though:

  • More expensive than plastic and aluminum.
  • Heavier than plastic and aluminum.
  • May dent if exposed to enough force.
  • Can make liquid taste metallic.


Glass, whether it’s in your windows or your water bottle, is a hard but breakable inorganic material. It’s created by fusing sand with ingredients like sodium carbonate, calcium carbonate and lime.

Thanks to their sleek, attractive look, glass water bottles have become more popular with time.

The pros of glass water bottles include:

  • Beautiful, clear and glossy, making them perfect for people who want a custom water bottle that’s both functional and elegant.

  • Won’t absorb color, odor or flavor, no matter what type of beverages they’re used for.

  • Won’t alter the taste of liquid.

  • Long-lasting and able to withstand repeated washings.

  • 100 percent recyclable in most cases.

On the other hand, the cons of glass water bottles include:

  • May break if dropped or tipped over.
  • May not be dishwasher safe.
  • More costly than aluminum and plastic.
  • Heavier than aluminum and plastic.


Although most water bottles aren’t comprised entirely of silicone, many feature silicone accents, grips and sleeves.

The pros of silicone water bottles and accents, grips and sleeves include:

  • Flexible and durable.
  • Heat and cold resistant for comfortable handling.
  • Adds an insulating layer to otherwise non-insulated bottles.
  • Offers grip to reduce the chance of drops.
  • Can add fun pops of color.
  • Provides extra protection against dents, dings and breakage.
  • Dishwasher safe.

The cons of silicone water bottles and accents, grips and sleeves include:

  • Can crack or tear over time.
  • May be damaged or scratched if cleaned with abrasive materials.
  • May pick up stains, odors or flavors over time.

The Best Water Bottle Brands

Generic custom water bottles can absolutely work as well as their name-brand counterparts. But, choosing name-brand water bottles can add a sense of prestige and quality.

These are six of the most well-known, trusted and popular water bottle brands:

  • Contigo
  • CamelBak
  • H2GO®
  • Basecamp®
  • Tervis®

Here are three of our favorites:

Going Green

What determines whether personalized water bottles are green or not? Here are some of the most important aspects of eco-friendliness to look at.

Reusability: Bottles So Cool They Won’t Get Tossed

In the now-famous words of author and organizing consultant Marie Kondo, “The best way to choose what to keep and what to throw away is to take each item in one’s hand and ask: ‘Does this spark joy?’ If it does, keep it. If not, dispose of it.”

This principle applies to water bottles just as much as it does to any other household item.

Besides their quality and functionality, the beauty and aesthetic appeal of your custom water bottles will be a crucial factor in determining whether your recipients keep them or not.

Here are some examples of downright pretty bottles that no one will want to throw away:

16 oz Blossom Bottle

The stainless steel 16 oz Blossom Bottle will look just as cute next to a yoga mat as it will in the office. It features vacuum-sealed, double-walled insulation and a leak-proof screw-on lid.

Copper-colored stainless steel water bottle with silver screw-on lid and black logo

16 oz Vigo Woodgrain Stainless Insulated Bottle

The 16 oz Vigo Woodgrain Stainless Insulated Bottle has a gorgeous woodgrain finish that creates an elegant and natural look. Its vacuum-sealed, double-walled insulation will keep drinks hot or cold all day, and its screw-on lid is conveniently leak-resistant.

28 oz Sleek Stainless Water Bottle

The 28 oz Sleek Stainless Water Bottle has a streamlined and seamless aesthetic that will appeal to many people. Its stainless steel screw-on lid is designed to resist spills, too.

Biodegradability: Water Bottles That Return to the Earth

One of the biggest issues with all plastic products is that they can’t biodegrade. This means that they can’t decompose into natural materials after being used.

So, selecting biodegradable custom water bottles is an excellent way to go green.

This way, even if your water bottles do get thrown away, they won’t continue to negatively impact the environment.

Check out these biodegradable water bottles:

20 oz Bio-Bottle

The 20 oz Bio-Bottle is made from biodegradable plastic. It also sports a carabiner clip, flip-open lid and convenient sport spout.

20 oz Value Sport Bottle

The biodegradable 20 oz Value Sport Bottle has a wide mouth lid that makes it easy to add ice or other drink ingredients. It’s also equipped with a flip-top lid for easy sipping.

Resource Renewability: Bottles Made From Sustainable Materials

Some water bottles are made from non-renewable materials such as plastic, which is generally made from fossil fuels. Others, however, feature renewable materials like bamboo and glass.

Take a look at this prime example:

18.5 oz Serenity Bamboo Glass Bottle

The 18.5 oz Serenity Bamboo Glass Bottle is reinforced with a unique canvas sleeve. It boasts a beautiful bamboo lid as well as a convenient carry loop.

What Type of Lid Should You Choose?

24 oz Color Band Bottle - Flip Straw Lid

With such a wide selection of lids, from flip straw lids like the one above to simple screw-on lids, how do you select the one that’s best for your purposes?

Purple plastic water bottle with blue stripes, white logo and blue flip straw lid

Crestline’s director of vendor relations has a few tips:

”You’re either a sipper or a gulper. People don’t generally switch back and forth. Either you sip or you gulp and that’s how you determine what kind of lid you want. For a sipper, buy a bottle with a built-straw, or a push/pull lid. For a gulper, you want a lid that completely unscrews or is just open and free-flowing.”

With that in mind, here are the various types of lids available for you to choose from, plus an example of each:

Flip-top: These lids are flipped open to reveal a narrow opening for drinking. One of our favorites is the 26 oz Tritan Flair Bottle with Drink-Thru Lid. It features durable construction and a rainbow of available colors.

Flip-up spout: These lids feature convenient flip-up spouts that make it easy to drink on the go. One great choice is the 26 oz Tritan Flair Bottle with Flip Straw Lid, which also includes a handy carrying handle.

Push button lid: These lids can be opened at the push of a button, making them ideal for one-handed use. We’re fans of the 24 oz Contigo Madison Bottle. This bottle also comes with a carrying loop for extra portability.

Push/pull lid: These lids have a handy push/pull opening and closing motion that can be operated with either one or two hands. We love the 27 oz Poly-Squeeze Sport Bottle Translucent, which fits in most cup holders and is available in an array of colors.

Screw-on lid: These lids are some of the most basic — just unscrew to access your beverage. We like the 25 oz Hydra Water Bottle. It’s reinforced with a stainless steel base and screw-on lid.

Straw lid: These lids offer the convenience of disposable straws without unnecessary plastic waste. This also makes them perfect for iced drinks. One of our favorites is the 16 oz Thirst Buster Travel Cup, which is equipped with a sturdy O-ring stopper to ensure the straw stays in place.

Thumb slide lid: These lids are similar to normal disposable coffee cups with their sippable opening, but can quickly slide closed to avoid spills. We’re particularly fond of the 11 oz Sherpa Vacuum Tumbler and Insulator. It boasts high-quality insulation and a clear press-on lid and convenient slide closure.

Customization Options

You can, of course, add your own unique logo, slogan or other image to your custom water bottle. Here are some things you can do to tailor your order with Crestline to suit your needs.

Select Your Imprint Area and Type

First, ask yourself if you want your design to be imprinted in full color. If a particular color scheme is an integral part of your branding, you’ll likely find a full-color imprint to be the best option.

For example, check out the vibrant shades on this 17 oz Deluxe Halcyon® Bottle, which is vacuum-insulated and features a twist-off lid:

Gray stainless steel water bottle with rainbow-colored logo and silver screw-on lid

Or, you can simply choose to go with a single color.

Next, think about whether you want your design to wrap around the entire bottle or be located on one side only. This is what the above water bottle looks like with a wrapped design:

White stainless steel water bottle with wrapped design of dinosaurs and a silver screw-on lid

Finally, you’ll need to decide whether you want your design to be printed or engraved. Printed designs can create an appealing and colorful look, and engraved ones can make your custom water bottles look elegant and high quality.

Take a look at how laser engraving reveals the stainless steel base of the 20 oz Tundra Bottle, which includes a sturdy carrying handle:

Blue stainless steel water bottle with black screw-on lid and engraved silver logo

Evaluate Production Time

If you need to have your personalized water bottles by a specific date, it’s essential to plan ahead.

Most of our bottles take five to seven days to customize while some take even longer. So, make sure to give yourself plenty of time to choose from the widest possible selection.

If your time is limited, though, you’re not out of luck: We offer a wide variety of custom water bottles with 24-hour service, including some of our most popular styles.

These are some of our favorites:

Additional Options to Consider

Here are some other ways you can ensure that your water bottles meet your requirements:

Determine the Right Capacity

Our bottles range from 8 oz to 40 oz, and top-selling styles run the gamut of sizes.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing which capacity of custom water bottle to go with:

  • Portability: It goes without saying that the smaller the water bottle, the more portable it is. If you want your recipients to be able to fit their water bottles in their bag, think about choosing a smaller capacity.

  • Car cup holders: If you want your recipients to take their water bottle with them everywhere, try to pick water bottles which can easily fit in standard car cup holders.

  • Bike cup holders: Many bike cup holders can only hold bottles of specific sizes. Be sure to take this into account if you plan on distributing your water bottles at an outdoor biking event, or if you know that your recipients are avid bikers.

  • All-day hydration: If you’re looking to give your recipients water bottles that offer all-day hydration, you’ll want to go with a larger capacity.

Choose Between Imported or USA-Made

If you’d prefer to purchase water bottles that are made in the USA and support U.S. jobs, you’re in luck: We offer a wide selection of water bottles made in the USA.

Some fantastic options include the:

Think About Ease of Cleaning

Depending on the material they’re made from, some water bottles are easier to clean than others. For example, most stainless steel water bottles are dishwasher safe. By contrast, most aluminum water bottles are not.

Additionally, some imprints are dishwasher safe, while others are not.

The size and shape of your custom water bottles will also affect their ease of cleaning:

  • Bottles with narrow openings may need to be cleaned with a bottle brush. But, some unscrew lower down on the bottle to accommodate washing.

  • Bottles with wide openings can be washed with a normal dish sponge, making them the easiest to clean.

  • Bottles with straws or spouts will need a more detailed cleaning — a bottle brush will come in handy here, too.

If you’re looking for water bottles that are the easiest to clean, choose one with a wide mouth, such as the:

Special Features

Our custom water bottles are available with a slew of extra features. Depending on your purpose, you can custom-pick the features you want to suit your needs.

Here are some other special features you can opt to include, plus our favorite example of each one:

Infusers: Infusers are designed to steep fresh fruit in beverages for delicious flavor, without allowing ingredients to float around freely. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy some refreshing cucumber-infused water during a strenuous workout? One of our favorite choices is the 28 oz Infusing Fruit Sports Bottle, which is made from shatterproof plastic and features a built-in basket for fresh fruit.

Collapsible/foldable: For maximum portability, some water bottles are collapsible, while others can be folded completely flat. These bottles are ideal for trips or corporate retreats. A fantastic option is the 28 oz Collapsible Water Bottle, which includes a metal carabiner and push/pull cap.

Color-changing: Color-changing water bottles have the fun of a mood ring and the practicality of on-the-go hydration. We’re big fans of the 16 oz Evolve Tumbler Mood Straw, which sports a clear double-walled tumbler and color-changing straw.

Vacuum-sealed/insulated: Vacuum sealed and insulated water bottles are ideal for retaining the temperature of both hot and cold beverages. That way, coffee stays piping hot and water stays refreshingly cool. You can’t go wrong with the 22 oz Juna Copper Insulated Bottle, which is lined with copper and features a screw-on, spill-resistant lid.

Dome covers: Dome covers are fantastic for preventing spills during beach days or outdoor activities. Plus, they can also help keep bottles sanitary. One of our top choices is the 12 oz Race Day Water Bottle, which is equipped with an attached dome cover and push/pull lid.

Blender bottles: Blender bottles are perfect for mixing smoothies and protein drinks on the go. One perfect option is the Fuel Up Fitness Tumbler with Mixing Ball, which has a built-in measurement scale and a screw-on wide-mouth lid.

Bluetooth/wireless/speakers: These high-tech bottles are sure to impress your recipients. We love the Sporty Bluetooth™ Speaker Bottle, which has a non-slip bottom, screw-on lid and carrying handle.

Copper-plated: Copper-plated water bottles aren’t just beautiful. They also have natural antimicrobial properties that keep beverages pure and clean. We’re especially partial to the 12 oz Cosmo Mini Copper Insulated Bottle, which features a screw-on lid, silicone carrying strap and wide-mouth opening.

Light-up: For a water bottle your recipients won’t soon forget, try a bold light-up water bottle. One eye-catching example is the 22 oz Cool Gear® POP Light Up Bottle, which has a push-button flip cap and extra-long carrying strap.

Pill compartments: Water bottles with built-in pill compartments are perfect for storing supplements or medications. We recommend the 23 oz Flip Top Water Bottle with Medicine Reminder, which is outfitted with a wide spout and fold-down carrying handle.

Clips and carabiners: Water bottles with clips and carabiners are perfect for on-the-go use, from fun runs and cycling races to outdoor events and work trips. One popular option is the 26 oz Vivid Aluminum Sports Bottle, which is available in a variety of colors and includes a mini carabiner.

Jugs and growlers: Built to hold a large amount of liquid, jugs and growlers are a great option for long events and all-day hydration. We have a penchant for the 64 oz Tundra Growler, which is lined with copper and features an insulated lid.

Flasks: For bottles designed for after-hours fun, try either a full-sized or portable hip flask. One excellent option is the 25 oz Insulated Wine Flask, which is crafted from stainless steel and holds a full bottle of wine.

Water Bottle Trends

As water bottles have grown in popularity, a few notable trends have emerged.

If you’ve ever seen someone on social media with a picture of a beautiful water bottle positioned next to their exercise equipment, you know what we’re talking about. This Twitter post from Contigo is a perfect example:

Here are some of the most trendy water bottles right now:

Bottles with carabiners: Fitness junkies and jet setters alike are fans of these ultra-portable water bottles — just clip them onto a bag and go. One of our favorites is the 26 oz Carabiner Bottle, which includes a handy flip-top lid.

Speaker bottles: With their inconspicuous built-in speakers, these water bottles can play music anywhere. One standout example is the 22 oz Stainless Steel Audio Water Bottle, which features double-wall insulation, copper lining and LED lights.

Prestige bottles: With their recognizable brands and premium quality, prestige bottles are highly sought-after. We’re fans of the 16 oz Contigo Byron Vacuum Insulated Bottle, which is double-walled and equipped with a textured grip.

Iridescent: With their eye-catching iridescent exteriors, these water bottles are definitely social media worthy. We can’t get enough of the 17 oz Iridescent Copper Lined Insulated Bottle, which boasts vacuum-sealed insulation, copper plating and a leak-proof screw-on lid.

Glass core: Glass core water bottles combine the pure taste of glass bottles with the durability of other materials. One terrific option is the 17 oz See-Through Tritan™ Glass-Lined Water Bottle, which also includes removable silicone rings and a paracord carrying handle.

Bamboo accent: Bamboo accents are sustainable, eco-friendly and stunningly beautiful to boot. One standout option is the 10 oz Celeste Bamboo Bottle, which is crafted from ceramic and bamboo and features a wide-mouth opening.

Opalescent: Opalescent bottles feature a gorgeous multi-colored finish that’s unique and subtle. We’re big admirers of the 20 oz Opalescent Himalayan Tumbler, which is double-walled and is equipped with a non-slip bottom and spill-resistant lid.

Ombre and gradient: Ombre water bottles are both sleek and on-trend. One of our favorite choices is the 21 oz Chrome Bottle, which has a wide-mouth opening and plastic carrying handle.

Woodgrain and marble: Woodgrain and marble-pattern water bottles have a luxe appearance that won’t go unnoticed. One gorgeous example is the 17 oz Marble Look Copper Lined Bottle, which sports copper lining, double-walled insulation and a screw-on lid.

Silicone grips: Silicone grips don’t just provide additional durability and temperature retention, they can also add a fun pop of color. We’re fond of the 16 oz Daily Commute Tumbler with Silicone Wrap, which also features double-wall insulation and copper lining.

Textured finish: Metal water bottles with textured finishes are more attention-grabbing than their non-textured counterparts. One well-loved example is the 17 oz Flake Ice Gully Stainless Tumbler, which is double-wall insulated and closes with a screw-on lid.

Skinny: Skinny jeans may be going out of style, but skinny and milk bottle-style water bottles are an undeniably hot trend. We’re fans of the Skinny Insulated Water Bottle, which is equipped with copper lining, an easy-grip lid and a built-in carrying strap.

Not everyone uses pens or paperweights on a regular basis, but everyone drinks water daily. That’s why a custom water bottle can be one of the best types of promotional products to send to employees, customers and event participants.

No matter which option you choose, you’re sure to make a meaningful and lasting impression.

After all, analysis from Transparency Market Research found that the global reusable water bottles market will exceed $10 billion by 2025.

Next time you’re sponsoring an outdoor event, hosting a work trip or planning an employee appreciation gathering, make an impact and get valuable exposure with a water bottle your recipients will love.
