Are your cups dishwasher-safe? Microwave-safe?
All products are dishwasher safe but top shelf recommended. We do not recommend any of these products be used in the microwave.
Can your products be frozen?
It is not recommended that any of our products be frozen due to possible cracking.
Are other professional sports or college teams available?
We are often asked why we do not offer certain colleges, NBA teams, NASCAR drivers or other sports properties. Our decision to add new teams is a complicated process that involves the analysis of a given market, the ability of our customers to sell the teams across the country and the costs associated with additional licensing. We collect requests over the course of the year and our product development team meets annually to conduct the analysis and make additional licensing decisions.
We can’t make any promises but as a general rule of thumb, the more requests we receive, the better the chance of us adding the team. If you would like to make a request, please contact our Customer Care team through our website or call 888-825-9339.
