Where would the best place to have custom swizzle sticks made be? I was thinking of molded plastic ones like the ones Trader Vics has, except with my own figure and bar name on them.

We used Label Industries for the custom Hukilau swizzles. They got us a minimum ordere of 10,000. Thee place that does TV swizzles does a better job, but require an order of 100,000. Hale Tiki used them and the stick looks great. But 100,000 swizzles would fill a palette about 4-5 feet tall.

That site is great. They have a good one or two you can get at just 2,500 per order. A good choice.

Also, after your first order of a custom swizzle, the price goes down. The molding cost isn't there. That should be considered as well.

Thanks everyone.

One more thing, Does anybody know where I can purchase large, irridescent, clamshell bowls? I asked this question once before, but I can't seem to find the thread in a search.

The frankoma bowls can be found on ebay for around $15, you can really sink money into it and buy sculptural ones at import stores, or there's always cheap ass plastic ones from Oriental Trading Co.

Actually at Halé Tiki we ended up using a company called Royer Industries. You can do a search and find their Web site. They have a larger min. order but it comes out to be a really good price.
