    I work at a print shop and truthfully for something that is going to have cold drinks with condensation sitting on top of it, I’d go with letterpress. It’ll cost more but I think the text on the coaster would last longer.

    When it comes to water proofing if you are going to have these printed on paper, you can put them in photo frame coasters. Another way is using a pouring resin on the paper (i.e. Epoxy Resin). Or there is a process called UV Coating that some print shops may be able to do. We use it for business cards, but I’m sure you’re going to want to use a thicker paper. I’d just call around your local Print shops and ask them if they have any ideas on what you want and ask for quotes. I know you want to DIY these but if you send camera ready art, most of the time they won’t charge a Type setting fee.

    Hope one of the options helps! Good luck!
