Are you looking for biodegradable paper cups, which can be used for the most purposes? And that at the same time showcase your business in a professional and welcoming manner? Then Limepack’s single-wall paper cups with print are the best solution.
Single-wall paper cups are mostly used to serve lukewarm/room temperature or cold drinks and they are often used for cappuccino, soda and other soft and fizzy drinks. Thanks to the single-wall paper cups you do no longer have to worry about getting your hands and fingers burned when bringing those types of drinks on the go.
Biodegradable, recyclable and plastic-free
Our paper cups are produced in biodegradable and recyclable materials only. This means that we exchange the plastic on the inside of the cup with water-based coating. The main resource of plastic-free paper cups is pulp from trees. The water-based coating is made by mixing chemicals with the pulp that then are put into a water fuse together to form a thin layer. When the water is dried off the layer that is sticking to the pulp will then form a barrier that is able to contain liquids.
The clear advantage of the plastic-free paper cups is the low CO2-emission during the production in comparison to the production of ordinary paper cups. Furthermore, no oil is used during the production of cups. So not only it is helping reduce plastic waste and single-use paper cups which end up in landfills and not in recycling facilities, but it other than helping the environment, coffee, restaurant and fast-food chains can save a lot on waste charges, as the containers are recyclable.
The paper cups are therefore biodegradable and compostable. However, this does not mean that we encourage throwing the paper cups in nature – they should instead be recycled in the paper and cardboard recycling facilities.
Labelling of BIO paper cups
On the 3rd of July the SUP-directive will be enforced, this means that all drinking cups that contains plastic or materials that has same effect as plastic, will need to be marked with a label that says, “contains plastic”. Our BIO paper cups does not contain plastic, but since the law is very unspecific, we are not able to determine whether our plastic-free paper cups should be marked with this label or not. Which is why we would put the label on these plastic-free paper cups, but if you do not wish this label on the cups, then we can produce the paper cups without the label but at your risk.
Single-wall paper cups with print
When producing single-wall paper cups we use the so-called ‘offset-print’ as printing method in order to deliver the highest quality possible at both large and small quantities. Further to your advantage, we use CMYK-colours, which allows us to use a wide selection of colours but the best part is that, when using full-colour print, you do not have to count the colours in your design – you can use as many colours as you like and even completely free-of-charge!
Enjoy limitless freedom in your creative and promote your brand just the way you like. You can choose a stylish and very simplistic design style. Or maybe go with a bright, colourful and eye-catching design. Regardless of which approach you to have for the design of your single-wall paper cups, we can do it – and without any additional cost.
