Default custom coasters

Anyone have a good way to print custom coasters with your logo on it?

I think the biggest problem will be the inability of most printers to handle coast-weight stock. It would probably be easier to print on stickies.

I found that website as well. Of course you have to buy a min. of 500. I just wanted around 25. The best option is to probably "borrow" some coasters from your local pub, print your logo on sticker paper, and attach your logo over the real coaster.

I've had some made with pictures at Shutterfly. If you have your logo as a jpeg file they could probably do it. Kinda pricey though......

Print them on high quality paper and then stick them to suitably sized fiberboard. Use some Envirotex or similar product to varnish them, then affix a piece of cork to the bottom.

I had coasters made from this company: http://www.myownlabels.com/ML119.asp?fnColumns=4&AreaID=12

You can get 24 personalized coasters for $25 if you use one of their designs. You have to pay an extra fee (I think it is another $25) to use your own logo. Still a pretty good deal though compared to other places.

Those are cool...I might look into that.
