New Mixed Design Double Wall Paper Cups

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

For the first time we’re able to offer a disposable paper cup with mixed designs in each sleeve. Traditionally paper cups have a single design per case; hence no variety or variation is possible. This is largely down to the way the cups are produced and packaged on the production line.

Our new mixed design “Barista” cups are available exclusively as a double wall insulated cup. The Barista design is centred on coffee shop atmosphere photography, examples of this are included below. The mixed prints provide a lively and more varied alternative to using either a single print or a plain cup.

This range is available from stock straight away in the usual 8oz (small), 12oz (medium / regular) and 16oz (large) sizes. Please get in touch with our sales team for further information, samples are available on request.

Paper Cups for Hot Drinks – Which Do I Choose?

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Paper Cups for Hot Drinks – Which Do I Choose?This is a question we get asked a lot by customers looking to start purchasing paper cups for the first time, we’ve got a sizable range of cups which can sometimes prove bewildering for somebody not familiar with the product.

To many people, all paper cups are created equal, they’re simply a convenient method of serving coffee on the go. There’s actually a lot more to it though; cups can feature extra insulation in the form of a barrier layer or a corrugated outer wrap for example.

The first consideration when choosing a cup is selecting the level of insulation required. The choices can be broken down as follows:

  • Single wall paper cups; the most cost effective type of cup, made from a single layer of PE coated paper. These are a great choice for high volume use, or where you know that black tea / coffee won’t be served (lower temperatures). Even then you can purchase cup sleeves to use with these so customers have the option of adding extra insulation.
  • Double wall paper cups; These paper cups offer an additional layer of insulation, the extra barrier layer traps air between the outer wrap and the cup which makes the cup more comfortable to hold. More expensive than the single wall cups but more cost effective than the ripple cups.
  • Insulated ripple cups; these cups offer the best form of insulation for disposable hot drink cups. A thick corrugated barrier layer offers the greatest insulation against heat, it also has the advantage of keeping your drink hotter for longer.
  • Ultimate triple layer cups; Triple layer cups offer the same advantages as a ripple cup, except with a smooth outer wall. They have the same insulating properties but with an internal wrap rather than external.

Once you’ve selected the most suitable type of cup, you’ll find we offer a large range of different sizes. These break down as follows:

  • Espresso cups; espresso is always served in a small 4oz cup, much shorter and narrower than any other cup type we stock. These are also great for sampling purposes.
  • Small takeaway cups; normally an 8oz serving, this is one of the most common cup sizes we stock. You’ll also find the shorter 6oz size of cup that’s designed for serving the ever popular “flat white”
  • Medium / regular takeaway cups; normally these range from 10-12oz. A standard 12oz cup is the de-facto regular size, but you will also encounter 12oz “squat” cups. These are designed to be shorter to fit under the nozzle of automatic coffee machines.
  • Large / oversize; anything 16oz or larger is considered a large sized portion. We even stock a 20oz (one pint!) cup as an oversize option.

Double Wall Paper Cups

Double wall paper cups

We’ve expanded our already extensive range of hot drink cups with the new range of double wall cups. These offer superior insulation to the common single wall type of cup by offering an additional barrier layer. The advantages of this layer are twofold; it helps the drink retain its temperature for longer whilst also making the cup more comfortable to hold. This is especially beneficial with black Tea / Coffee where the drink is much hotter.

These insulated cups are stocked in the popular Black and White styles in small, medium and large sizes (8oz, 12oz and 16oz). In addition, we’re also offering a new range of printed “Barista” design cups with mixed designs per sleeve. Thanks to the smooth outer wall of the double wall cups, it’s possible to use high quality imagery for maximum impact. The prints in this range are all monochrome coffee-house themed, great for front-of-house commercial usage.
Examples of the prints are shown below, all mixed at random in each pack. Samples are available on request, please get in touch with our friendly sales team for more information.
