What is College Town Maps Drinkware?

College Town Maps Drinkware is an expansion of our Maps Barware product line. Our goal is to bring intricately designed maps of your favorite college towns to your bar top on a classic pint glass. We are starting with 60 iconic U.S. college towns, ranging from the quaint to the colossal. Each town will come as a pair of glasses with each glass printed in one of the two colors of the home town team.  We’ve partnered with a brand new crowd funding site (similar to Kickstarter) to raise the initial funding we need to bring this product to life.  The funds will allow us to create the print screens, secure raw glasses, and place the first production order of boxes for packaging. Our project will be live on June 16th and run for 45 days, so we hope you will support us and spread the news to all of your family and friends!

A bit about us!

Our founder, Brian Johnson, started theUncommonGreen in 2009 to make everyday products that meld artistry with functionality, practicality with wit, and style with sustainability. Drawing inspiration from his background in mechanical engineering and industrial product development, Brian started looking for ways to incorporate high-performance industrial materials into designs for the home. Among his earliest creations was an end table made with “flotsam”, a composite used on the decks of U.S. Navy Destroyers and deep sea applications for buoyancy control. Another was the Pi Bottle Opener, a piece of pure steel that relentlessly cracks open beers while paying homage to our favorite irrational constant. As new designs piled up in his apartment, it became clear that they were ready to be shared, and thus the UCG was born.

Along the way, Brian’s college buddies Dave and Neil came on board to help propel the UCG vision that great design really can make the world a better place to live. Then, because why not have a more friends along for the ride, Colin joined to bring his creative mindset into the mix.  Ever since, we’ve been committed to building our company on five essential qualities—creativity, ingenuity, craftsmanship, honesty, and pride.
