Using collectible drink coasters doesn't just have to be about preventing a ring of boozy liquid from being left on the top of your beautiful oak dining table. They can function as an ice breaker, getting the room to engage in conversation about how kitschy your mug mats are. Or they can show off a bit of your own personal taste, telling all your guests how much you adore Star Wars without having to go into great detail about it.

Good collectible drink coasters are able to get a reaction from the crowd. For instance if you were to use the Terada Naoki pop-up paper coasters on your table at your next dinner undoubtedly your friends would gasp at how creative they are. They would marvel at the craftsmanship and the positioning of the little character cutouts circling their sudsy beverages.
