A Lasting Memory of a Great 50th Birthday

The personalised stubby holders our guests loved

It was recently my mum’s 50th birthday; my brother and I wanted to get her a little something funny that she could keep and reflect on down the track to remember the big ‘5-0’. We contemplated a 21st style slide show with speeches and all the usual announcements but thought that’s too boring and generic for this woman. We wanted something that summed my mum up and gave our guests a little bit of a laugh as well – that’s when we decided on personalised printed stubby holders.

Stubby holders are a really affordable way of printing something fun that can be handed out to everyone at the party. We sifted through 50 years of photographs of my mum’s life and chose some of the best – from the crying baby shot to the awful 80s, she was emblazoned in all her glory across surprisingly high quality coolers. We even got to print her birth date and a bit of a sentimental message among the photo collage!

All the guests at the party loved their party gift – a great way to say thank you for sharing in this momentous evening, but most importantly, Mum still uses her at every barbecue and shows it off to everyone who stops in for a cuppa!

History of the Stubby Holder part 1

With the love of our lives, the common stubby cooler, holder or Koozie, we are endevouring to find out more about where this humble item came from. This is part 1 of the adventure as we delve into the murky depths of an ice cold beer. 🙂

Known as the Beer Koozie in the USA, the stubby holder has origins from a company who trademarked the name Koozie in 1979 in Texas. Originally designed as a drink cooler out of styrofoam, over the year stubby holders or koozies have developed into using other materials. The most common material currently is Neoprene, commonly know as wet suit rubber. This rubber, is a synthetic material and as such is able to have ink impregnated into it using a process called heat sublimation. Using specially designed inks, to deal with the temperature change, the result is the ability to print full colour images onto what was original white wet suit rubber.

The idea behind the stubby cooler, is to keep the drink insulated. The first developer saw a niche for a product to be used in warmer climates and as such the koozie is now common in many western countries with warm climates. Because of the simplicity of the design, cylinder with a base, the stubby holder has become a bit of a cult item of most Australian Men. They are found in their favourite drinking locations, be it their local bar or shed out the back, but the real growth has come with companies realising the advertising potential of the space.
