Paper cups are an economical choice for selling beverages. They are lightweight, inexpensive, and easy to dispose of. However, if you are like most restaurant owners, you may have heard some of these negative myths about using custom printed paper cups. If this is the case, then I would like to explain why it is beneficial to purchase and use printed cups and what specific benefits you will enjoy.:
Myth #1: Using printed cups is expensive.Reality: Using printed cups is cheaper than using plastic or metal cups. That’s because you only pay for the cups you actually sell. Also, because printed cups are made from post-consumer recycled paper, they are actually cheaper than buying new paper cups.
Myth #2: Printed cups do not last as long as plastic or metal cups. Reality: Actually, printed cups last longer than either plastic or metal cups. This is because the ink used to print the cup does not wear off as easily as the plastic or metal components of a container. In fact, many cups purchased by consumers have a life expectancy of 10 years or more. This means you will get at least nine years of service out of every 12-pack of cups you purchase.
Myth #3: Printed cups do not stand up well to hot drinks. Reality: Hot beverages cause more problems for printed cups than any other type of cup. The primary reason is that hot liquids expand and, when they return to their normal size and shape, they push the cup walls back away from each other, creating an opening through which air can escape.
Over time, this allows the liquid to dry out, become stale, and ultimately go bad. However, this problem can be minimized by keeping your cups in a refrigerator (or some other cold place) immediately after use.
Myth #4: Printed cups do not have a very attractive appearance. Printed cups have a much more appealing appearance than plastic or metal cups. This is because the printed designs are created using high-quality ink, and the paper they are printed on is a much more natural-looking material than either plastic or metal. In fact, many of the most popular printed designs look almost like they were hand-painted. This is especially true of the newer, more advanced printing techniques.
Myth #5: Printed cups do not provide good traction for removing them from a cup holder. Reality: Printed cups do have a very effective gripe. This is true because the ink used to create the print on the cup surface also acts as a non-stick coating. This allows the cup to be easily removed from a cup holder, even if the holder has been previously coated with grease or other sticky substances.
Myth #6: Printed cups do not provide good protection against dust, dirt, and grease. This is one of the main reasons why printed cups are used instead of plastic or metal ones. The ink coating on the paper helps prevent dust, dirt, and grease from sticking to the surface. This, in turn, helps maintain the fresh appearance of the printed designs.
