I'm thinking of getting new mugs for Piano World.

Thought we might go with travel mugs this time (so you can take them with you when you travel to Piano Forums Parties :-)

However, some folks prefer a regular mug, as they don't really use the travel mugs they have now. So... We'll put it all to a vote.


These will probably sell for around $7.95
Likely have the PW logo on one side, and either www.PianoWorld.com on the other, or World Famous Piano Forums.

# 1


# 2


# 3


# 4 is a Regular Ceramic Coffee Mug



And don't forget, you can still get your official Piano Forums Lapel Pins here...



PWPF Lapel Pins

And the official PWPF 2-CD piano solo set...

It's possible, but I have to order 144 each minimum. Then there is the $45.00 set up fee, and $105.00 shipping on the ceramic mugs.

Bottom line, it cost a lot of money to get them (particularly if we don't sell enough to cover expenses).

Just curious, could it say "World-Famous Piano Forums" and[/b] "www.PianoWorld.com" on the back of the mug? (I suppose there's there's limit to the number of characters that can be printed.)

Why do people see any need for "travel mugs"? Why the need to drink and drive? I see travel mugs as a driving distraction, as potentially distracting as cell phones; people need to drive with both hands on the steering wheel, not staring out the sunroof as they try to drain the last drop from their travel mug.

Regards,

Some people (e.g., my hubby) actually WALK to work and like to bring coffee with them. ;\)

...but I voted for the ceramic mug myself. We already have enough travel mugs, most of which leak around the lid.

Are you going to tally all the travel mug votes together? I see that ceramic beats any individual travel mug, but overall, slightly more people seem to want travel mugs more than ceramic.

I seem to lose my travel mug, so I always need a new one. I am beginning to think my ceramic mugs reproduce in my kitchen cabinet when the door is shut!

Hi Frank,

Mugs are a great idea! Now, if I may make a small suggestion . . .

I believe your poll has a design flaw, because you offer three choices for travel mugs and only one choice for a ceramic mug.

In the total votes to date, more people have chosen travel mugs than have chosen the ceramic mug. This strongly suggests that the travel mug is the preferred type of mug. But unfortunately the votes of the travel-mug fans are spread over three styles, so on a pure majority-vote basis, they'll lose to the ceramic mug fans.

It would be better if you first asked which type people preferred (travel or ceramic), and then, once that vote is cast, asked the voters to choose a style.

Carol

PS: I would like a travel mug ever so much.
