Back in stock – Black Paper Banquet Rolls – Great for Halloween

black-Banquet-paperWe’ve just taken a fresh shipment of our Black coloured paper banquet rolls, just in time for Halloween parties and themed events.

Halloween is now officially the 3rd biggest occasion in the UK events calendar (https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-3286170/Halloween-overtakes-Valentine-s-Day-biggest-retail-event.html), just behind Christmas and Easter. This follows a similar trend seen in America where the occasion has steadily gained popularity over the years. This has resulted in larger scale celebrations, and in particular more home parties and themed events in bars / nightclubs.

Paper tablecloths and banquet rolls are great products to use at such events; they provide a temporary and easily replaceable table covering.  They’re available in a variety of colours, one of the most popular of which is Black. These can be used to protect tables from spillages or just as themed decoration.

Our steam embossed paper tablecloths are made from heavyweight 45gsm paper, much thicker than the majority of other alternatives on the market. They also feature no plastic coating so can be put straight into your paper waste and recycled.

New lower price on black paper straws

Fblack-paper-straws-webrom 5th October we’ve got a new lower special offer price on the black paper drinking straws, reduced by a huge margin from £99.00 to £65.00 for a full box of 5,000. Smaller boxes of 200 straws are also reduced from £7.00 to £5.00 per box.

These are a great replacement for the ever popular black 5/6mm plastic drinking straws, ideal for bars, pubs and other venues looking to replace their disposable plastics. It’s also a good solution for venues that have a biodegradable mandate imposed which stipulates the use of compostable products. It means you can continue to provide customers with straws where required.

These items are available immediately from stock, with next day delivery available on orders placed before 1pm.

Compostable Kraft Ripple Cups – Product Launch

bio ripple groupAs part of our new 2018 biodegradable range of cups, we’ve added an alternative to the popular brown ripple cups. This new Biodegradable version looks and feels, for all intents and purposes, the same as the regular brown insulated cups. The key difference (other than the INGEO biodegradable branding round the base) is that it has a PLA corn starch lining rather than the usual PE plastic inner lining, this means it is completely biodegradable and eco-friendly.

For maximum flexibility the cups have the same 80mm (8oz) and 90mm (12,16oz) rim diameters as the rest of our cup range. This means you can use the regular white or black lids if required, or use the compostable lids for a completely biodegradable solution.

For café’s and other commercial users the appearance has been kept intentionally similar to the regular brown ripple cups, this means making the switch to biodegradable items should seamlessly fit into any front of house environment.

Samples are available on request, please see our compostable paper cups section for more information: https://innsupplies.com/biodegradable/biodegradable-paper-cups

 

New Double Wall Biodegradable / PLA Coated Paper Cups

double-wall-groupWe’ve expanded our increasingly popular range of biodegradable paper cups with a line of double wall insulated cups with a PLA (Polylactic Acid) compostable lining. These feature the same great heat insulation as the disposable PE coated double wall cups, but use a PLA lining instead.

We’ve seen a strong market swing towards biodegradable items through 2018, as such our already strong range of eco-friendly products has been significantly expanded to encompass insulated cups, lids, straws and plastic glasses.

Our double wall biodegradable cups are available in the usual sizes; 8oz (small), 12oz (medium) and 16oz (large). These accept the same lid sizes as the rest of our cups range, 80mm for the 8oz cups and 90mm for the 12 and 16oz sizes.

Samples are available on request, you can see our full range of biodegradable paper cups at: https://innsupplies.com/biodegradable/biodegradable-paper-cups

 

Branded Paper Cups

printed paper cupsDid you know that we can brand / custom print any design you like on our paper cups? We stock a variety of off-the-shelf prints and plain designs for our disposable cups, but for larger quantities we’re able to print your logo or other artwork on a customised cup.

Custom print runs start from as little as 10,000 units (as few as 10 cases of cups), no need to commit to huge quantities. In addition to having your own bespoke artwork on the cup, you can also mix and match attributes to create a cup combination we don’t supply as a stock line. For example we could produce a 4oz double wall biodegradable paper cup if required. Cups are available in the following types:

Cup size; 4oz, 6oz, 8oz, 10oz, 12oz, 12oz squat, 16oz, 20oz

Insulation types; single wall, double wall, ripple, ultimate / triple later

Lining; PE, PLA (biodegradable)

Generally, custom prints take between 12-14 weeks from the point of artwork approval. Once they arrive, we ship these out to your chosen delivery location in a single consignment. There’s no additional delivery charge for this, the price on the custom printed page is the price you pay – no additional origination fees.

You can find a full selection of blank templates on our site if you want to complete your own artwork, these are at: https://innsupplies.com/custom-printed-templates

Catering Supplies – Going Biodegradable?

soup-containers-groupAt Inn Supplies we’ve always stocked a wide range of specific biodegradable products or compostable alternatives to traditional items. Over the past year we’ve worked hard at expanding this range, there’s now more choice than ever before for customers that specifically require biodegradable items.

Moving towards biodegradable alternatives is a topic that has attracted huge media focus over the past 6 months in particular, the aim being to reduce landfill waste and litter from discarded packaging.

Our range of compostable and biodegradable catering products currently includes the following:

  • Round Biodegradable Plates
  • Square Biodegradable Plates
  • Biodegradable Bowls
  • Biodegradable Food Boxes
  • Biodegradable Paper Cups
  • Biodegradable Soup Cups
  • Biodegradable Plastic Cutlery

In addition to these, many other items from our catalogue are inherently biodegradable due to being made from 100% recycled paper:

  • Paper Tablecloths
  • Paper Napkins
  • Cup Sleeves

Products can be classed as biodegradable for several reasons, for our range this boils down to:

  • Made from 100% paper; this will degradable naturally and completely as it contains no other additives or coating.
  • Produced from an alternative material that doesn’t require a coating. Sugarcane / Bagasse is a good example of this. These are made from sugarcane pulp which is 100% biodegradable.
  • Featuring a coating that is designed to be biodegradable / compostable. Our biodegradable paper cups use a PLA corn starch coating instead of the more common Polyethylene plastic coating.
  • Items using an additive. Our biodegradable cutlery uses an additive called Addiflex which makes the plastic compostable.

As an ethical supplier of catering disposables we’re always keen to offer environmentally friendly options to customers. We also have a strict policy for sourcing disposables than are ethically produced and from sustainable resources.

Reusable Plastic Glasses and Barware

hiball plastic glassesWe’ve got a huge range of disposable paper and plastic products for most occasions; however we also stock an extensive range of hard plastic reusable items. There are several reasons why you might want to consider a reusable plastic product over a cheaper disposable alternative, such as:

  • Strength
    If you’re catering for a function that specifically requires more substantial glasses, our hard plastic reusable tumblers might be preferable.
  • Potential reuse
    This needs to be calculated on a case-by-case basis, but if it’s possible that the glasses might be reused there’s a point where it becomes more economical to use a reusable glass over a disposable type.
  • Specific style of glass
    Unfortunately not all glass shapes are possible or commonly available in disposable plastic. This can be for a variety of reasons, often because the shape would potentially be too weak for a disposable glass and too prone to breakage. Reusable glasses are available in a much wider variety of styles and have huge inherent strength.
  • Commercial use
    This is the most common reason for using a hard plastic reusable glass; commercial venues are often required to offer an alternative to glassware for after-hours or outdoor usage. This can be a council licencing stipulation, these are rigidly enforced for safety reasons. Polycarbonate reusable glasses are virtually unbreakable making them much safer than glassware in pubs, bars and clubs.

We stock reusable plastic glasses in 2 main material types. A standard hard plastic ‘light use’ type (ECON) which is made from crystal Polystyrene, and a harder plastic virtually unbreakable type (ELITE) made from Polycarbonate. The most suitable type is completely dependent on the intended usage; Polycarbonate glasses tend to be the go-to choice for commercial environments, however Polystyrene glasses are more popular for home or occasional usage. For all intents and purposes they look very similar; the Polycarbonate glasses are thicker and heavier however.
