A blog all about ‘Beer Mats’

All about beermats, dripmats and coasters!

Beermats Help the Aged

Beermats were used in a campaign to raise awareness of the plight of old people living on their own at Christmas, on behalf of UK charity, Help the Aged. The hard-hitting campaign used a colourful beermat design to draw attention to the beermats and offered up a story of an old age pensioner living in isolation on the reverse of the mat.

 

Apart from these heart rendering stories, there was also a call to action for readers of the beermats. This called for them to use their mobile phone to send a ‘reverse-billed’ text which would result in a donation of £3 for the charity Help the Aged.

 

This was a prime example of beermats being used to deliver a serious messages as well as a tool to raise funds for a worthy cause. It further demonstrated the use of a beermat to encourage a call to action from the reader.

Beermats used to target under-age drinkers

Leominster and Area Drugs and Alcohol Forum used beermats in their campaign to tackle underage drinking and anti social behaviour. They produced a series of beermats which featured young people who were drunk. These beermats were subsequently distributed to off-licenses and alcohol retailers.

 

The forum intended that the beermats would have a practical use as well as delivering a serious message to potential under-age drinkers. The forum is run by the Herefordshire Community Safety and Drugs Partnership.

 

Once again beermats are proven to be an excellent medium for delivering messages to a targeted audience. There are several manufacturers of beermats in the UK who can design, manufacture and print bespoke campaign messages.
