Latte macchiato, cappuccino or cold beverages to go in personalised drinking cups: Customers who want to have their own logo printed on cardboard cups can now order them at the online print shop onlineprinters.com. The minimum order is 1,000 cups which are custom printed in short production times from 16 to 18 days. This is new in the printing industry where many other suppliers require a minimum order of around 50,000 cups at an average delivery time of 8 to 10 weeks. The product development department of Onlineprinters GmbH has added the trendy cardboard cups with custom printed design to its range of gastronomy products. "The popular drinking cup in personalised design is now also available for smaller events. A niche product until recently, the cardboard cup is now widely available: to small cafés or bistros, large coffeehouse chains, advertising agencies, catering services and many other companies that want to showcase their brand during tradeshows and events", Heiko Wiederer from the product development of Onlineprinters GmbH is glad to announce.
The cardboard cup: economically priced, practical and eco-friendly
The cardboard cups are printed in customary high-grade offset quality with four-colour print on the outside using food-safe colours that are neutral to taste and smell. The environmental aspect is of great importance during the production of the cardboard cups. "We only use food-certified cardboard and paints for producing the cups", Heiko Wiederer explains. Cold on the outside, hot inside: Coffee to go is absolutely trendy. The quick coffee treat is rapidly gaining popularity. "Most bakeries or fast-food chains now offer their customers the popular hot beverage to go. Printing their own logo on the cups had not been economical for many enterprises due to the high costs and the large minimum order quantities. Thanks to our small minimum orders, the cardboard cup has become an interesting product not only for the gastronomy sector", Walter Meyer, CEO of Onlineprinters GmbH, explains. The cardboard cups from onlineprinters.com have a double-wall outer shell which protects the hand against the hot content while providing excellent stability. Cups with personalised prints are thus perfectly suited for beverages to go and promotional use: The advertising message reaches consumers while they are enjoying their drink.
New gastronomy products for customised advertisement at the point of sale
The trendsetting double-wall cardboard cup is the latest product in the gastronomy range of the onlineprinters.com print portal. The drinking cups are available in the sizes 200 ml (8 oz) and 300 ml (12 oz). They are ideal for standard servings of cappuccino, latte macchiato or cold beverages. The fitting plastic lids are optionally available in black or white. But the gastronomy product range of Onlineprinters has other highlights to offer: Durable advertising material, such as beer mats, table displays, bottleneck sleeves and bottle tags as well as door hangers were especially developed for the needs of the catering and brewery market and the hotel and event sector. Especially the 3-D-displays with their novel multidimensional shapes have proven to be elegant eye-catchers in the event industry and at the point of sale. The advertising products offered by Onlineprinters GmbH all have the following advantages: They are custom printable, they can be ordered in small quantities at favourable prices, and they quickly arrive at the point of sale owing to short delivery times.
