Q. What kind of lids do you have for the tumblers and cups?

A. We offer travel lids with a large opening that will also accommodate a straw. We also offer a plastic straw lid.

 

Q. What is the advantage of Signature insulated tumblers over acrylic cups or tumblers that are insulated?

A. Acrylic tumblers and cups are not dishwasher sturdy and will break if dropped. Signature insulated tumblers are made of polycarbonate and are guaranteed for life not to break. 18oz coffee mugs have a handle twice as wide. Also, Signature tumblers can be returned to our store and exchanged on the spot, without having to pay for freight and going to the trouble of shipping.

 

Q. Will Signature tumblers be hot to the touch if holding a hot beverage?

A. No. Because of the double wall insulation, you can hold the cup against your hand.

 

Q. Will these glasses break easy? Will they shatter?

A. Signature tumblers are guaranteed for life not to break. They are made of a high quality polycarbonate, the same material used to make fighter jet canopies. No need to worry about dropping on the floor, patio, or boat deck.

B. Yes, Signature tumblers are shatter proof. Great for boats, decks, and of course, kitchens.

 

Q. Do Signature tumblers sweat like a conventional glass?

A. Absolutely not. Because they are double walled tumblers, they reduce condensation greatly. Mostly, they don’t sweat unless the humidity is very high.

 

Q. Do Signature tumblers keep hot drinks hot longer? How much longer?

A. Signature tumblers do keep hot drinks hot longer because of the double walled insulation. Using a lid will insulate it up to 3 times longer than conventional coffee cups or drink ware. They are also dishwasher and microwave safe.

 

Q. Does ice keep in a Signature tumbler longer than conventional drink ware?

A. Ice keeps much longer in a Signature tumbler and does not sweat like a glass. In fact, depending on the beverages acidity, ice can keep for as long as 6 hours.

 

Q. How do these compare with Tervis Tumblers?

A. Both Signature tumblers and Tervis Tumblers are guaranteed for life, dishwasher safe, microwave safe, reduce condensation, and made in the USA. However, there are several advantages of owning a Signature tumbler. Signature’s 16oz traveler is slightly taller and a true 16oz. Signature’s 18oz coffee mugs have a handle twice as wide. Also, Signature tumblers can be returned to our store and exchanged on the spot, without having to pay for freight and going to the trouble of shipping.

 

Q. Can I special order sorority tumblers to match my school/college colors?

A. Of course. We just have to get permission from the Sorority. For example, the University of South Carolina chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma ordered a large quantity in their school colors.

A. Very simple and the process can be expedited fairly quickly. See the corporate loge link for information on sizes, colors, designs, etc. We also do not charge a set up fee as most do.

History of the Greek Alphabet

The Greek alphabet emerged in the late 9th century BC or early 8th century BC Another, unrelated writing system, Linear B, had been in use to write the Greek language during the earlier Mycenean period, but the two systems are separated from each other by a hiatus of several centuries, the so-called Greek Dark Ages. The Greeks adopted the alphabet from the earlier Phoenician alphabet, a member of the family of closely related West Semitic scripts. The most notable change made in adapting the Phoenician system to Greek was the introduction of vowel letters. According to a definition used by some modern authors, this feature makes Greek the first "alphabet" in the narrow sense, as distinguished from the purely consonantal alphabets of the Semitic type, which according to this terminology are called "abjads".

Greek initially took over all of the 22 letters of Phoenician. Five of them were reassigned to denote vowel sounds: the glide consonants /j/ (yodh) and /w/ (waw) were used for [i] (Ι, iota) and [u] (Υ, upsilon) respectively; the glottal stop consonant /ʔ/ ('aleph) was used for [a] (Α, alpha); the pharyngeal /ʕ/ (ʿayin) was turned into [o] (Ο, omicron); and the letter for /h/ (he) was turned into [e] (Ε, epsilon). A doublet of waw was also borrowed as a consonant for [w] (Ϝ, digamma). In addition, the Phoenician letter for the emphatic glottal /ħ/ (heth) was borrowed in two different functions by different dialects of Greek: as a letter for /h/ (Η, heta) by those dialects that had such a sound, and as an additional vowel letter for the long /ɛː/ (Η, eta) by those dialects that lacked the consonant. Eventually, a seventh vowel letter for the long /ɔː/ (Ω, omega) was introduced.

Greek also introduced three new consonant letters for its aspirated plosive sounds and consonant clusters: Φ (phi) for /pʰ/, Χ (chi) for /kʰ/ and Ψ (psi) for /ps/. In western Greek variants, Χ was instead used for /ks/ and Ψ for /kʰ/ The origin of these letters is a matter of some debate.
