Homecoming pint glasses are here

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a new pint glass design, but our latest one has arrived just in time for this weekend’s Homecoming festivities!

Dave created a football and Homecoming-themed design with batches in crimson and blue, especially for all our Jayhawk fans and friends who might be returning home this weekend for a visit.

As always, pint glasses are $3 each. And, you can bring one in every Thursday for $2.50 tropical drink refills! Doesn’t get better than that.

Graduation pint glasses are here!

Dear Class of 20Sandbar 2014 Graduation Pints | www.thesandbar.com14 members, our latest graduation pint glasses are here!

The much-anticipated items finally arrived today. They’re available with red and blue designs, and you can pick one up (or as many as you want, really) for the low, low price of just $3.

Thursdays are our popular tropical drink night, when you can buy a tropical drink and pint glass combo, then bring your pint glass back for refills any Thursday for just $2.50 per drink.

We ordered two batches of these glasses, so we *should* have enough for all of you. But if not, we can always order more…


Graduation 2014 pint glasses on the way

Good news, graduates-to-be!

We’ve had a few questions about our graduation 2014 commemorative pint glasses, and we’re happy to tell you that these popular items will be here soon.

We don’t have an exact date yet, but as soon as they arrive, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Here’s a look at this year’s design:

No, it’s not totally unique; you may recognize this design from 2011. But it’s good enough to recycle, don’t you think?

We’ve ordered these in both red and blue. So, if you’re still looking for a gift for the graduate on your list, stop by and pick one up!

Design a Sandbar pint glass

We’re amazed by the continued popularity of our pint glasses, and we know lots of you collect them.

It’s hard work coming up with new designs all the time! And often, our most popular pint glasses are the ones designed by customers.

It’s been awhile since we put out the call for designs, but it’s time. We aren’t looking for a specific holiday design this time (but if you have one, send it to us anyway!), but instead we want to start a new series of pint glasses with a special design for each of our tropical drinks.

So, creative types, start thinking. Our rules are simple:

  • Single color, please
  • No licensed trademarks, like a Jayhawk
  • Keep it simple; the design is small

No need to incorporate the Sandbar logo, because that’s on the front of the glass.

We’re looking for designs for the Bahama Mama, Shark Attack, Pink Flamingo, Rum Runner and Dino-Mite for now, but if you have ideas for other designs we definitely want to see them.

If your design is chosen, you’ll get a super-cool Sandbar prize pack with T-shirts, pint glasses and other fun stuff. Plus, you’ll be famous and you can brag about it to your friends.

Email us at sandbar@thesandbar.com with your ideas.

New graduation pint glasses are here!

Congratulations, Class of 2013!

Your commemorative graduation pint glasses have arrived, just in time for Tropical Thursday and $2.50 tropical drinks.

Here's the design on the glass:

Graduation 2013
We've got them in both red and blue, and the Sandbar logo is on the back of the glass.

For the first time ever in the history of crowdsourcing pint glass designs, we didn't get a single submission from you guys, so we made it up ourselves.

The glasses are $3 each, and you can bring them back every Thursday for $2.50 refills on tropical drinks. Or you can add to your collection at home. They make great drinkware for the post-college apartment.

Graduation pint glasses wanted!

We can't believe it's already April, and that means Commencement isn't far behind. Which might be music to the ears of those of you graduating! Or maybe not, if you're not quite ready to leave college.

Anyway, it's time for a new pint glass design to commemorate the occasion!

Graduation pint glasses are a huge thing for us every year. They make great gifts, and they're the perfect inexpensive souvenir for students leaving Lawrence.

And this year, we've got another option for you: we have boxes to pack them in, so we'll be selling four-packs. More info on those to come later.

For now, though, we need a design. And that's where you come in!

If you've got a great idea for a graduation glass, we'd love to see it. A few rules:

  • No licensed marks, like a Jayhawk
  • Must be a single-color design
  • Simple line art without complicated shading

Otherwise, we're pretty open to ideas! Draw it up, use clip art, whatever you need to do, and email it to us at sandbar@thesandbar.com. If your design is chosen, we'll give you a pack of glasses and a T-shirt, and you'll get the satisfaction of knowing hundreds of 2013 graduates are drinking out of your glass.

Also, we'll feature you on our blog so you can get another five minutes of fame.

We also realized that we never featured the designer of this year's Valentine's Day glass, so look for her profile coming soon!
