5oz Small Clear Plastic Drinking Cups

5oz Squat Plastic Drinking Cups
5oz Squat Plastic Drinking Cups

New in today is our new 5oz water cup – designed primarily for use with water coolers and dispensers in the workplace and in Schools.  We’ve introduced this item an alternative to our ever-popular 7oz tall clear non-vending cups, the smaller capacity allows for a reduced cost-per-unit whilst providing a comfortable and convenient means with which to dispense water. A secondary benefit to using a smaller cup is that it dissuades taking the drink away from the immediate dispensing area – the end result is that cups are disposed in the waste receptacle provided rather than left on desks or thrown on the floor.

Customers can purchase this new item in either a single cellophane wrapped sleeve of 100 cups or as a full case of 2,000 where larger quantities are required. Please enquire if you require pallet quantities.

Our clear 5oz cups are made from flexible Polypropylene – designed to flex rather than crack or break to avoid sharp edges or spilled drinks. The rim is semi-rolled for a comfortable drinking experience.

Dimensions are as follows:

  • Height: 72mm
  • Top diameter: 70mm
  • Base Diameter: 43mm

As with all our water cups, these items are fully recyclable with your regular plastic waste.

For more information, please see our Water Cooler Cups category, or go straight to the 5oz Plastic Drinking Cups. You can also find this product on our sister website (Inn Supplies) at: http://innsupplies.com/5oz-squat-clear-plastic-drinking-cups.html

Tall Translucent Water Cooler Cups – Promotional Prices

We’re offering the larger 9oz size of water cooler cups at the discounted rate of £19.50 while stocks last; these are available on a strictly first-come-first-served basis. We have a finite quantity of cases available at this rate, which is by far and away the lowest you’ll find anywhere in the UK (we’ve checked!).

The most common size of water cup is definitely the 7oz size – these are commonplace in Schools, Universities and especially the workplace. The larger 9oz variant is normally used where offices find employees are taking multiple cups / or simply where a larger serving is required. We personally find that Gyms and Health Clubs are the biggest users of this cup size.

This promotional price means that the 9oz clear cups are only £2.00 more expensive per case than the 7oz size, meaning each cup is £0.001 more expensive despite holding nearly 30% more liquid.

We can supply either full cases or pallet quantities of this product, please get in touch through the normal channels for more information.

Clearance 7oz Water Cooler Cups

We’ve got a limited quantity of clearance 7oz clear water cups, these are “factory seconds” that were rejected due to a slightly discolouration.  We have strictly quality control procedures in place that prevent the sale of these items; as such we’re offering these at a clearance price while stocks last.

For full case quantities, please give our sales team a call on 0844 4995456.

The cups have a slight discolouration, this results in a subtle yellow tint, only really noticeable when the cups are stacked in a full sleeve. Other than this discolouration the cups are identical to our regular stock of non-vending water cups.

Our water cups (non-vending) are great for use with water coolers or cup dispensers, commonly used in schools, offices or as a general purpose water vessel at parties.

Maximum capacity is 227ml with a rim diameter of 70mm. As with our regular non-vending plastic cups these have a weight of 2.5g per item.

Blue Tinted Plastic Water Cups

In addition to our existing white and translucent water cooler cups, we now stock an aquatic blue 7oz tinted cup.  These cups feature an extra-tightly rolled smooth rim so there are no rough edges, this is especially relevant when the cups may be used by younger children. As such, we recommend this cup for use in schools where they may be used unsupervised with water dispensers.

Blue tint Plastic Water Cups are available in sleeved quantities of 100, or full cases containing 2000 cups (20 sleeves of 100). Pallet quantities are available on request; please contact our sales team for more information.

9oz Tall Translucent Water Cups (Non-Vending)

By popular demand, we are now once again stocking the 9oz tall clear water cooler cups. These high quality PP (Polypropylene) plastic cups are ideally suited to use in cup dispensers alongside office water cooler machines.

In addition to re-launching the 9oz size of water cup, we’ve also been able source the items at a more competitive price. In turn we have passed this saving onto our customers. A full case (2,000) cups previously sold for £38.99, thanks to our purchasing team we’re now able to offer the same product at the everyday low price of £29.99 – representing a huge saving of £9 per case.

For customers who prefer to purchase these products in smaller quantities we’ve also reduced the price of a sealed sleeve (100 cups) from £2.10 to £1.75.

The 9oz water cups are available from stock with immediate effect; pallet quantities are also available on request.
