Hi, I'm Benjy with Pinnacle Promotions and this guy is the Fred Friends Wake Up Mug. Now, I don't know about you but until I've had my coffee in the morning I kind of look like this too. Very droopy, very sluggish. But this 11 oz porcelain mug feels the same way about coffee as I do. All you do is you fill this mug up
with a hot beverage and the eyes turn from sleepy. to wide awake! due to the heat sensitive inks on the mug. Your 2 by 2 logo can be imprinted on the other side of the mug and these would be a really great giveaway for cafes or coffee shops or even for corporate breakroom to show that awesome sense humor that your company's got.These are the Fred Friends Wake Up Mugs and you can find them at PinnaclePromotions
