Retro Floppy Disk Silicone Drink Coasters – will hold up to 1.44MB of beverages

Retro Floppy Disk Silicone Drink Coasters

Remember back in the early 2000’s when the cool, hip way to transport data was on brightly colored floppy disks? Oh how times have changed! But you can still hold on to a bit of the past with Retro Floppy Disk Silicone Drink Coasters.

These brightly colored coasters are modeled off of the 3.5 diskettes that were used for everything. Now of course, the only time you see them referenced is when you need to save a file. Or if you happen to work in a variety of industries that for whatever reasons haven’t updated their systems in well over a decade.

These diskettes are dishwasher safe and can be used to rest cups, spoons or just about anything else you don’t want to leave a stain on your table. Alternatively, you’ve probably got a box of these things lying around in a basement or attic somewhere and at this point, they’re probably only fit for life as a cup rest anyway. If you want to remember when you had to carry ten of these around for all your data needs, the Retro Floppy Disk Silicone Drink Coasters are $15.99 for a six pack.


  • Floppies are only known to many ‘youngsters’ as the “save document” button in spreadsheet or word-processing software.

    Fun exercise: Calculate how many pallets of floppy disks you would need to store the amount of data that we can store on a modern USB memory stick or in our mobile phone.

    • I think about that all the time. Whenever I’m moving a big file around like it’s nothing I think, “When I was 16 this would have been impossible. Teenagers today don’t know the struggle.”
