Ever Cups: The Missing Manual
over 1 year ago – Wed, Dec 06, 2017 at 12:13:34 AM

Ever Cups are arriving around the globe! 

Gonna level with you: while it's truly exciting to hear some of the positive feedback that's been coming through, we also recognize that we made a major error of omission. A manual!

For everyone that's been confused or has opened the box to frustration rather than elation, I want to apologize up front. We have been so close to this project for so long that we didn't realize there were opportunities for confusion in how to take the lids off, open and close them, and protect the cups from breakage.

I also apologize to everyone whose cups arrived cracked! We took special care to package the cups securely and pad them well, but glass is glass... and while it might have been unavoidable, we hate the idea that a single one of you opened your box to find something broken inside. Send me a message or email hello@gir.co if there's something wrong with your cup. We'll fix it.

And now, the manual!

The lid fit on these cups is SNUG. Hook your fingers or thumbs under the lid tab to pry the lid off at an angle. Press down with even pressure to put it back on.

The lid is really tight in order to prevent leaks and sloshing. If it's tight, it's doing its job! But when fully inverted, it is possible for liquids to drip out of the drink hole. Don't do that.

The outer lid should spin around the inner lid to hide or reveal the drink hole. When the glass rim is wet, it's possible for the inner lid to spin around a bit. If that happens, just push down on the lid tab to hold the inner lid in place as you open/close.

The double lid design is clever, but comes with one major caveat: since it fits quite tightly on the glass, spinning the outer lid quickly and forcing it past the tab can cause unexpected breakage. Please take care to rotate the lids carefully and never, ever try to force rotate the outer lid over the tab.

Hope this helps you get to know your Ever Cup a little better. As always, if there's anything we can help with please don't hesitate to shoot us a note at hello@gir.co. Happy Sipping!

Cheers,
The GIR Team
