What should I engrave on my YETI?
If you're clueless about the YETI uprising in the drink industry... I urge you to crawl out from under your rock a little more often and join us where the grass is a little greener and beverage temperatures are perfectly maintained for hours beyond what logic says possible. How? You may ask.... Science. Thats how. I'll leave the technical specifics up to the experts of the YETI company. Just trust me. It is just a-ma-zing.
If you've already purchased your YETI cup or cooler then you know the gloriousness of drink evolution at its finest and my words probably won't do it justice.
If you're ready to take it to the next step... make it your own. Or if you've just paid the pretty penny for your very own YETI and want to make sure it stays yours by adding a little engraving customization, there is a few things to keep in mind...
- Design/text options
- Different types of engraving process
Names and monograms are a popular choice for personal use as well as gift giving. Never again have to say the question "Is that my YETI?". It will practically call your name.
A personal logo or company logo is a great way to do double duty and add a little effortless marketing into your day. This is also a good way to promote your company by gifting these coveted cups to your best customers.

The Engraving Process
There are 2 types of engraving machines dominating the YETI market.
1) The Fibermark Laser - Our personal favorite. This machine is strong enough to actually etch into the stainless steel of your YETI. We recommend this because it is a permanent marking on your cup. It will not rub off with use or peel or scratch off. Its there to stay. If you're going to spend the extra money to have your cup personalized, you don't want it to be removable. The Fibermark Laser is capable of grey scale engraving, giving you shades to differentiate between colors. (Think of your colored logo printed in black and white.) The engraving burns the metal to a "bronzy" blackish-brown color, which has a nice contrast.
2) CO2 Laser - The other most common lasering process for YETIs is a CO2 Laser. This is a surface marking made by using a spray before engraving that when hit with the laser adheres to the cup. The excess is wiped clean, leaving only the design. Although the marking is darker than fibermarking, it is not a permanent process, and with use of the cup your design can eventually wear off.
And there you have it! Hopefully this has been informative in helping you choose what and how you would like to engrave your YETI. When you're ready, contact us.
