Single wall cups are for cold and warm drinks. Double wall cups provide the insulation needed for hot drinks, without the need for a sleeve.

Print processes include digital CMYK, from quantities as low as 5000 cups and ead times can be measured in days.

The best value is achieved with litho factory prints (1-6 colour) (50k minimum). Litho-printed cups can usually be delivered within six weeks.

Paper cups are not actually paper at all, but white card (fibreboard) traditionally laminated with plastic, making them a mixed material and therefore difficult to recycle. While it is true that some companies pay for their plastic-lined cups to be recycled, the vast majority end up in land-fill because it is not economically viable to recycle these cups outside of a dedicated scheme. 

There are now three board types to chose from:

PE lined: Most cups are still fibreboard laminated with polyethylene. These cups can be recycled, but usually only within a dedicated cup recycling scheme. Please ask for advice.

PLA lined: Plastic laminated fibreboard again. PLA is plant derived plastic marketed as 'biodegradable' but it will not biodegrade in the natural environment. Check with local scheme for recycling compatibility.

Liner-free: No laminate but a spray on hydrophobic barrier, often marketed as 'aqueous', 'water-based', 'latex'. These barrier-based boards have no liner and should be recycled with paper and card.

Along with the plastic laminate, plastic lids are another let-down for paper cups. This is fast changing though and since mid-2021 we have been able to offer plastic-free sip lids made from the same plastic-free board as our liner-free cups. 

Nominal cup sizes: 4oz, 10oz, 12oz, 16oz, 20oz.
