Our Story

In an ever-changing world, our journey evolves alongside it. We proudly unveil our new brand and website. The ownership remains the same. Yet, our offerings have expanded, encompassing a treasure trove of products that extend beyond our previous scope. The fusion of Retail Mugs and MugHeads marks a milestone—unified they stand as a singular brand! Our selection in retail branded drinkware is enriched beyond compare, featuring a variety of items that will captivate and delight. Among them, we present with pride our exclusive line of private-label MugHeads brand tumblers—each one bestowed with impeccably laser-engraved designs.

Thank you for joining us on our journey. We are glad you are here.

Our History

2019 - Present

MugHeads

In 2019, we unveiled an exciting range of high-quality, novelty drinkware exclusively on Amazon, marking the debut of our MugHeads Drinkware brand. This move was met with such enthusiasm that by November 2023, we had combined RetailMugs.com with MugHeads.com, creating a unified shopping destination under the same trusted corporate umbrella of Effective Media, Inc.

2015 - 2023

Retail Mugs

While "Coffee Shop Promos" perfectly captured our essence, it never struck a chord with me. Acquiring RetailMugs.com back in 2011 opened a new chapter, but it wasn't until the fall of 2015 that we fully embraced our new identity. This pivot sharpened our presence in the coffee realm and ignited a steady climb in our sales.

2006 - 2015

Coffee Shop Promos

On a Saturday morning drive to a coffee shop rendezvous, I mused, "Surely a quaint shop's budget for promos must be just as petite." Yet, amidst our chat, inspiration struck. That epiphany catapulted me back to the office, where I birthed Coffee Shop Promos - the go-to source for custom-branded mugs for America's coffee nooks.

2002 - Present

Effective Media Inc

In February 2002, I traded the corporate world for entrepreneurial adventure, founding Effective Media on the iconic date of 02/22/2002. My journey began in Minneapolis in the realms of printing and mailing, but as I ventured independently, brokering print and web design became my forte. The venture took an exciting turn when a client's simple request for t-shirt printing marked the inception of our promotional products division.
