Printed Paper Cups: Single vs Double vs Ripple

Promotional Paper Cups - StarbucksThe best type of custom disposable coffee cups for you to use will depend on what you’re using it for.

Typically if you’re looking to use the cup for cold drinks, a single wall cup will suffice.  When looking at using the cups for hot beverages, double wall and ripple wall cups offer greater insulation from the heat of the drink.  For hot drinks whether you go with a double wall cup or a ripple wall cup will come down to the look that you’re after and the price point that you want to pay – ripple wall paper cups are traditionally a little higher in price than the double wall cups.  We are also of the opinion that any branding on double wall cups is much easier to view on the smooth surface of the double wall cup than the corrugated surface of the ripple wall cups.

How do you tell the difference between single wall coffee cups and double wall coffee cups? Run your finger down the side of the cup and if at the bottom of the cup there is an indentation – that’s a double wall cup.
