How cool is this? You can now customize your own Sigg Bottle over at CafePress. Love it.
(thank you larissa)
Saw this awhile ago and love it.
My wife works for Meals on Wheels and with an older guy that his doctor told him to drink more water. So we were going to make one of these up for him that said like “Jim is the best!” on it or something so he’s have a water bottle around with him all the time.
Now they just need to expand. larger printing area, different color bottles, etc.
We did this for a our Fuzzy Math 2009 holidays gifts and it went over great. Affordable, a bit stylish, and green.
Agree with Josh that the print area is a tad small but our logo still looked great.
I wonder if this would fit on a Sigg water bottle:
Sigg boasted that its proprietary plastic liner didn’t leach BPA into liquid like other bottles did. What it neglected to divulge was that the bottles contained the substance at all. While there’s no evidence that the first-generation SIGGs did in fact leach BPA, there’s still plenty of grumbling at the company’s lack of disclosure. The news is especially troubling since the company internally acknowledged the chemical’s questionable safety record as early as 2006, when it quietly decided to formulate a new, BPA-free liner. (The new liner is used in bottles made after Aug 2008)
“SIGG was one of the companies that profited from all the bad publicity over BPA,” says Elaine Shannon, editor in chief of the Environmental Working Group, an environmental science research and advocacy group in Washington. Shannon’s group urged SIGG last month to offer customers full refunds; SIGG declined.

I’ve been wanting a Sigg bottle for the longest time. Now that they’re customizable, I’m even more likely to get one. This will get me more ready to bring with my bikerides once the weather gets nicer
Wow, awesome! It’s good to know if my water bottle gets destroyed or lost I can replace it with a custom one!
Hmm, I want one ^^
Cool, but it still doesn’t change the fact that they knowingly misled their customers for years about the presence of BPA in their liner.
I agree with BWJ.
SIGG profited from the bad publicity about BPA in plastic water bottles, marketing their bottles as a healthy alternative. In 2006 they internally acknowledged that in face their own bottles contained BPA, but kept selling it until late 2008.
