I’ll Tumble 4 Ya- An Open Letter to My Tervis Tumblers

By Libby Esterle, Senior Account Executive

Dear RMC and Owl Tervis Tumblers,

Thank you for being there for me every day. Like Old Faithful, I know when it’s time to steep my Irish or English Breakfast Tea and get on the road, one of you is always ready to be my morning companion. No longer must I wait until the dishwasher is done as your tag team approach and willingness to alternate days makes for the perfect partnership.

Tervis #1- You were a complete surprise. Everyone at our Cincinnati-based marketing and communications agency received one of you from our agency owner as a holiday gift- a 10 oz tumbler featuring the Rasor Marketing Communications logo and personalized with our first name (no mix ups at staff meetings for this motley crew!). You were the perfect gift- thoughtful and yet uber-practical and a great way to subtlety promote our agency.

Tervis #2- As my admiration for Tervis #1 grew stronger each day, I knew I HAD TO get a companion- one Tervis is just not enough. So, I made a special trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond and plucked you from the shelves of your buddies. And while I DID have a 20% coupon in hand, I honestly think I would have paid full price for you if necessary. This, coming from a very frugal someone who has finally changed her way of thinking thanks to striking out with every cheap, leaky, poor-performing $3-$5 lidded coffee mug from Big Lots. You get what you pay for and you are worth it. Your 10 oz. worth of sassy-winking, sleeping, cranky, cross-and-googley-eyed and colorful owls reflect how I feel at any given time and put me in a good mood (well, most of the time. I mean, let’s be honest here- you are a tumbler, not a magician.)

To the both of you: stay true to who you are. Stay the perfect size for my cup holder. Stay dishwasher safe. Stay virtually indestructible and condensation-free.


Your Appreciative Owner
