The Crafted Cup Company is a small family business, started in March 2015 with the aim of bringing fine handmade beer mugs and pewter tankards to beer drinkers (and gift buyers!) across the USA and Canada. We love our cups, and the reaction from our customers on Instagram and Facebook shows that they do too.
But there's a problem... we know there's a whole lot of demand for great handmade beer mugs, but how do we reach everyone? After all, like most family businesses we don't have an enormous marketing budget.
