Coffee Cup

Paper cups, takeaway cups, disposable cups - paper cups with logos have many different uses as they are known by different names.

 

Cold drinks

If you intend to use the paper cups for cold drinks, then the single wall option is perfect for this situation. For cold drinks, the thickness of the paper is not so important as the printed cups do not need to be insulated. Single-walled cups offer a simple and clear expression on the outside and are also an inexpensive option for serving drinks.

Hot drinks

Most of our customers use paper cups with logos to serve hot beverages such as coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

 

When buying paper cups for hot drinks, you should consider the heat of the drink, as single-walled cups are often not hot enough to handle the heat. Single-walled cups can become so hot that they are almost impossible to hold until the drink starts to cool.

 

In this case, you should consider whether double-walled paper cups are more suitable as they prevent customers from burning their fingers and help keep the contents warm.

Popcorn

We have customers who use their custom designed paper cups as popcorn buckets as these are a cheaper solution and you can still serve good quality popcorn if you choose a 12 or 16 ounce paper cup. In this case, the clever thing about the paper cups is that their rounded appearance gives them a coherent look rather than the typical four-square look.

As paper cups are a very simple container, we also have customers who use them to serve snacks such as yoghurt, fruit salad, chips and jacket potatoes. The different paper cups sizes give you the opportunity to adjust the serving size to the portion you want. Shangrao Ecopak also offers you the possibility to customise the printed presentation in 8 colours.

Alcohol and fat

Some of our customers use paper cups to serve alcoholic beverages such as Baileys coffee and other similar drinks. You may be inclined to believe that a simple paper cup can hold almost anything, but there are actually some things that a simple paper cup can still cope with.

 

Alcohol and fat are just a few examples. Most paper cups are not actually designed to manage high levels of alcohol or fat. For alcohol levels below 5% or low fat percentages this will rarely be a problem. But anything higher can greatly affect the durability of a standard paper cup.

This can be solved as many manufacturers are able to reinforce the cup material (especially at the bottom) so that they don't start leaking. Alcohol and fat are not common ingredients in paper cups, so remember to ask your cup supplier if you want to serve strong alcoholic drinks or drinks with a very high fat content in cups with a logo.

 

If you are unsure that the food you want to serve may not be suitable for paper cups, you are always welcome to call or email us for more information on the various types of paper cups we can offer.

 

In general, paper cups can be used for a number of different purposes, including many not listed above. It is surprising how many different ways a simple object like a paper cup can be used. That said, it is still important to consider the printing and size of the cup according to the purpose for which you plan to use it. Feel free to email us and discuss with us whether a paper cup is suitable for your setup.
