The Many Styles of Paper Coffee Cups

Paper Coffee Cups

Branding your paper cups is a visually appealing way to promote your business and a fraction of the cost of other forms of branded packaging. We offer a comprehensive range of paper cups with different feature and functions, including double wall, ripple and compostable. Our paper cups are available from as little as 1,000 units.

Different Types

Single Wall

Single Wall cups are created using single layer paperboard. These cups are best suited to cold drinks, but they can also be used for hot beverages. When using with hot beverages, we recommend providing customers with additional sleeves.

Double Wall

A Double Wall structured cup incorporates two layers of paperboard to provide additional insulation. Opting for a double wall cup reduces the need for a sleeve when serving customers their hot drinks – hence why these are the most popular and cost-efficient form of paper cup.


A ripple paper cup offers a high level of insulation, which keeps drink hot for a long period of time. The outer ripple layer of cardboard also ensures that fingers are not scolded when the drink is being consumed. The ripple (heatwave) style is becoming an increasingly popular choice.

Double PE

Double PE cups have a PE coating on the inside and out which gives a glossy finish to the outside. These cups are best suited to cold beverages as normally with cold drinks, condensation will form, making the cup soft from all the moisture. The internal PE coating prevents liquid soaking through the wall, whilst the glossy external coating prevents condensation from making the outside of the cup moist.


With more brands striving to be environmentally conscious, the compostable cup is without doubt the right choice for you. These paper coffee cups are manufactured in either single or double wall and lined with PLA, meaning that they are completely compostable/recyclable. It is often thought that standard paper coffee cups can be recycled but due to their PE lining this is not the case, in fact they can only be recycled by specialized facilities.

Sleeves are another application that can be branded and use in conjunction with plain paper cups, allowing businesses to have a range of advertising or promotions to suit their needs.
