Single Wall, Ripple & Triple Layer Cups Explained

Our disposable takeaway cups are available in three main varieties, each with different heat insulation properties. These are:

  • Single Wall: The most cost-effective solution for coffee-to-go, single wall cups are ideally suited to warm/hot drinks such as tea and coffee. They can also be used with a paper sleeve to increase insulation where appropriate.
  • Ripple Cups: These feature an integrated ribbed outer sleeve, boasting excellent thermal insulation and heat retention. They are extremely popular with high street coffee chains.
  • Triple Layer: An innovative new style of cup, triple layer cups are designed to have similar heat insulating properties to the ripple cups, but with a smooth outer wall. The actual insulating layer is internal rather than external.

Please take note that all three sizes of cups use the same universal lid.

Custom Printed Coffee Cups

We’re frequently asked if we’re able to produce our popular hot drink cups printed with a customer-supplied design instead of a plain/stock design. We’re able to do this where the quantity exceeds 50,000 units per size. For more information, it’s best to get in touch with our sales team as pricing will depend on the style/size of the cup required, as well as the complexity/colours used on the required print.

Single Wall Paper Cups

We’re commonly asked by customers if they should purchase a single wall or an insulated paper cup. This is a difficult question to answer and predominantly depends on the heat of drink you intend to serve. In terms of sales, single-wall paper cups account for a higher number of sales than their insulated counterparts. For white tea and coffee, these are usual perfectly adequate. However, if in doubt you can always purchase a quantity of cardboard cup sleeves for those that request them.

For customers requiring strong insulating properties and heat retention from the outset though, the best option is to purchase a suitable insulated paper cup. Look for items such as those from our Kraft, Weave or Ultimate brands for cups which perfectly suit your needs.
