About Size, Specification -

Can you cut roll to different sizes of sheets as we want? Or there has some standard size for sheets?

We always cut the suitable size for customers as they want, so it's no standard size, because standard size may have a lot of waste.

Can you tell me the exact dimension of the paper (width * length)?

Different cup moulds, paper size is different, we produce paper in exact size to be very suitable to your cups (to be min waste, reduce cost).

What is the optimum gram for hot drinks and for cold drinks?

First, for hot drinks, the single PE coated paper is better choice. For cold drinks with ice, the double PE coated paper is better choice. Choosing gram is most depended on your cup size and your market.

How many cup bottom are needed for the 1ton cutting & printed paper (cup body)?

As usual, the proportion is about 1:0.2 (means 1ton paper need about 0.2tons bottom paper, just for reference!). Certainly, different cup size, different gram, it's different. Please inquiry details!


About Printing -

Can you produce the cutting & printed Single side PE coated paper?

Yes, we can do flexographic or offset printing, and Auto-cutting to the shapes you need, such as paper cup blanks.

Can you print our address & telephone number in small size at the edge of paper? Can I suggest a specific design to be printed on the cup-fan-wall?

Yes we can, also put your logo on the cups as you like. we can offer designs to you if needed.

What's the difference of flexographic printing & offset printing? What is the best printing method? How many colors can you print on a paper cup?

1. Flexographic printing required paper in roll. Offset printing required paper in sheet
2. Design mould different: flexographic plate is made of polymer material, it's expensive; but Offset required a normal plate (like PET material). It's cheaper.
3. The ink of flexographic printing is water based , blend by water , clear by water; so it's no pollution, ink is food grade . But generally, the ink of Offset printing is gas/oil based, blend by oil, clean by gas/oil, so it's pollution, not Food grade. Certainly, there has food grade ink for offset, but high price than Flexographic.
