You have your choice of stainless steel along with six vinyl-wrapped colors: black, gray, dark blue, light blue, pink, or teal.
Personalize this tumbler with your friend’s or loved one’s name, along with the quote of your choice; perhaps something like:

A portrait is a beautiful way to honor your special public servant at retirement, a promotion or preserve a memory.
