Deluxe Drinkware by Amanda Siska

We believe coffee, tea, beer, and spirits are not meant to be guzzled, but should be savored. These are things that make life enjoyable, and our drinkware enhances these everyday feelings of contentment.

Amanda Siska started Bread and Badger® in 2006 to nourish the soul, and remind you of special events while you sip your favorite beverages. Every new product is tested in our own home before we offer it for sale, so we're confident that it will live up to your expectations.

We offer a wide range of stock designs for different interests which can be purchased as-is on our various drinkware styles, or personalized for special occasions. We specialize in custom animal portraits, from pets to the exotic, and have many years experience turning logos into sandblasting stencils that can be reordered whenever you need client or company gifts.

Stay updated on our newest designs by joining our mailing list, since and you won't want to miss the opportunity to get your new favorite cup.



The term “bread and butter” means to provide a steady income and financial stability. I wanted to be the backbone for my little family, and make sure we were always provided for, even in uncertain times.

"Bread and butter" is also basic sustenance. Our products nourish the soul with designs that make you feel happy, and remind you of special events while you take your meals and sip your favorite beverages. We believe coffee, tea, beer, and spirits are not meant to be guzzled, but should be enjoyed and savored. These are things that make life most enjoyable, and our drinkware is meant to enhance these feelings of contentment.

The word “badger” came into our name because I was inspired by the honey badger. Honey badgers are fearless creatures that will not back down from a fight, and are impervious to venom. Running a small business is never easy, and I’m inspired every day by those tough little animals that can take on so much that other animals fear.

Returns and exchange details
Satisfaction is guaranteed! If you are not completely satisfied with any item that you have ordered, return your purchase within 30 days to receive an exchange, credit or refund (except custom-made, clearance, or personalized items). Please package items the same way we sent them to you, as they are very fragile! We are unable to refund any shipping charges. This includes the actual amount we spent to ship your order, even if you were not charged for shipping.
★ Payments ★
We accept payments through Etsy or Paypal, but you can use all major credit/debit cards or use funds from you bank account. E-Checks (Paypal payments deducted directly from a bank account) take a number of days to clear (3-14 business days), so please plan accordingly if you need shipment immediately.
★ U.S. Orders ★
We usually ship in-stock orders within 1 business day, but with holiday order volumes and some health issues we've had, it may take up to 2 days to ship. There may be unforeseen delivery delays from carriers due to COVID-19 or weather conditions during transit.

Custom and made-to-order items ship within about 1 week, based on the time it takes to create your stencil, get your approval of the final design, and possibly source specialty items.

Most orders will be shipped USPS Priority Mail (1-4 business days) or UPS Ground (2-10 business days).

You'll receive a confirmation email with a tracking number when we're shipping your order. We DO NOT guarantee delivery time for any packages once they have been received by a carrier.

Orders include insurance and Delivery Confirmation when possible. Packages may be left on doorsteps or insecure locations, as the delivery person sees fit. Unfortunately, we have no control over this unless you request and pay for signature confirmation. Shipping items to a work address is often a good idea. We cannot refund shipping charges for UNCLAIMED packages or returns.


★ International Orders ★

I love shipping our handmade products outside the USA, but I wanted to make sure you know that your country will likely charge you extra fees for customs, VAT, duties, and/or handling which could equal or exceed the cost of your order. There isn't any way for us to pay these in advance, or even calculate them accurately for every country that we ship to. Please read our policies outlined below and acknowledge them during purchase before we can ship your order.

If you are having this order shipped to yourself, then your local postal system will notify you when it arrives, and you will be responsible for paying these fees yourself within a reasonable amount of time. If you are having this order shipped as a gift to someone else, then they will be responsible for these fees. PLEASE make sure this person knows to expect the package, and is willing to pay the additional fees, as we cannot legally mark a package as a "gift" on customs forms. 

If the package is not picked up and customs/etc. paid for, then it will be returned to us in about 8 weeks. The actual cost of shipping we'll have to pay (USD $22.80 minimum) will be deducted from any refunds associated with unclaimed packages, so this could be costly to you if you don't collect your package.

International orders travel First Class or Priority Mail, based on weight and size of the package (larger orders travel Priority, which is faster and more expensive).
Additional policies and FAQs
★ Disclaimer ★
We do not manufacture glassware or ceramic items ourselves, so availability of colors and quantities is limited to what we can find.

Some pieces may have minor imperfections on them. We try our best to only use pieces with the least amount of imperfections, but some tiny bubbles in glass and ceramic glazes are unavoidable.

★ Custom Orders ★
Custom orders usually take up to 1-2 weeks with additional charges for design work and stencil creation.

Contact us now for a quote. Please note that we can NOT use art or text that you do not have the rights to reproduce for commercial use such as designs which are copyrighted, trademarked, or belong to any other person or organization, including sports, company, and band logos. We are not responsible for researching copyright ownership of your designs, but retain the right to refuse any custom design request.

We reserve all rights to custom art that we create for you. All custom art is (c) Amanda Siska (unless reproducing art owned by someone else and used with their permission), and may not be used or reproduced without her express written permission. We have the right to use the art we create on our own stock products to sell to other people, unless specifically prearranged.

★ FAQ ★

★ Is Sandblasting Durable/Permanent? ★
Sandblasting is one of the most durable image transfer method out there! Since the sandblasting process removes the top layer of glass or ceramic glaze by cutting into it, the only way to remove the design would be to melt it down in a kiln or sandblast away all the surrounding glaze.

There are a lot of decals or screen printing out there on dishware that looks like etching, but they wear off with time. Our process will never do that! Sandblasting also has a smooth, even finish, unlike laser-etching (which shows a matrix pattern on its etched surface) and acid cream etching which can be splotchy and uneven.

★ Are Your Products Dishwasher- or Microwave-Safe? ★
Yes! All our glassware and ceramics are food-safe, and can be washed in a dishwasher, even sanitized! The design will never fade, wear, stain, or scratch. We recommend hand-washing silicone travel lids in case of warping, but occasional dish-washing on a normal cycle should be fine.

All mugs and bowls are microwave-safe as well, and shouldn't get any hotter than any other microwave-safe cups.

★ Are Your Products Made in USA? ★
We buy blank glass and ceramic items, and sandblast our original artwork onto them by hand in Portland, OR. All our glassware items are made in the USA, but our ceramic mugs are made in China, which is considered "assembled in USA". We will have local American-made products that we can sandblast onto soon!

★ Are Your Products Lead-Free? ★
The glazes used on our mugs meet California’s Proposition 65 strict limits for leaching of lead and cadmium (0.99 ppm lead and 7.92 ppm cadmium). In fact, our glazes are non-detect at testing detection limits well below (< 0.01 ppm for both). This is really fantastic!

★ What is the Life Expectancy of Your Products? ★
Technically, they should be able to last multiple lifetimes. We understand that accidents happen, and our items are definitely fragile, but they aren't any more fragile than most other dishware on the market. We consider them more sturdy than some other brands available, and keep our standards quite high for durability.

To prolong the life of your Bread and Badger cups and avoid breakage, we recommend against nesting (stacking them inside or on top of each other), and avoid storing or washing them in sinks made of concrete, stone, or ceramic.

Some staining of silicone lids is unavoidable on lighter colors, so we recommend choosing darker colored lids if this bothers you. They shouldn't have any odors, but some customers with very sensitive noses have claimed that new lids have a smell, or that old ones retain a smell from scented soaps or beverages.
