Which lids do I choose for my paper cups?

group lidsWith our ever increasing range of paper cups we’ve also picked up several new types of sip through lids on the way, as a result there is quite a large range of lids available on our store. At a glance, this can appear somewhat overwhelming if you’re just trying to buy the correct lid for your cups.

The safest way to ensure you buy the correct lid is to find the paper cups on our site and look in the “related items”, we always list the appropriate lid for that product as a related item to make them easier to find.

In terms of types of lid, we offer the following:

  • 4oz – 63mm rim diameter
    Designed to fit 4oz espresso cups (plastic and compostable options)
  • 6oz – 73mm rim diameter
    Fits only the 6oz flat white paper cups (plastic)
  • 8oz – 80mm rim diameter
    Designed for all regular 8oz paper cups (black or white / compostable or plastic)
  • 10-20oz – 90mm rim diameter
    Designed for all regular 10-20oz paper cups (black or white / compostable or plastic)
  • Ultimate – 86mm rim diameter
    Fits triple wall “ultimate” cups only (black or white / compostable or plastic)
  • 9oz vending – 73mm rim diameter
    Only for 9oz or 7oz squat vending paper cups (plastic)
  • 7oz vending: 70mm rim diameter
    Only for 7oz tall vending paper cups (plastic)

As you can see we offer various options on these lid sizes. A lot of our lids are available as either a black or white lid to suit you individual requirements, most are also available as a compostable alternative too now to suit our biodegradable paper cups. The regular plastic lids are made from Polypropylene and are completely recyclable. The compostable alternative lids are made from cPLA, a cornstarch based natural alternative to plastic. These are biodegradable and can be composted too.

cPLA Biodegradable Lids for 4oz Paper Cups

4oz-CPLA-BIO-Lid webWe’ve always supplied a small travel lid for our range of takeaway espresso cups, however these are made from PP (Polypropylene) plastic.  With a sizable number of our customers moving to biodegradable alternatives we’re now stocking a biodegradable cPLA lid to fit these cups, as with the rest of our cup range. The cPLA lids are made from a cornstarch base, they’re completely biodegradable so a great match for our small 4oz biodegradable espresso cups.

Unlike many other 4oz plastic lids on the market, ours are a sip through traveler lid rather than a flat sealing lid. They’re designed for espresso consumption on the go.

You can find these listed in our sip through lids category and alongside the rest of our 4oz paper cups.

New Black Coloured Compostable cPLA Lids

CPLA Black bio lids groupWe’ve expanded our range of plastic lids to include a Black version of the popular white biodegradable / compostable lids. These are made from the exact same cornstarch-based raw material as the white lids; this means they’re 100% biodegradable and compostable.

As so many of our items now have a biodegradable option it made sense to cater for customers who prefer a black coloured cup lid over the white version which we’ve been stocking for some time now. We’ve seen a huge surge in popularity of the compostable product lines we offer – especially biodegradable paper coffee cups. Many coffee shops and retail outlets have been phasing in the biodegradable PLA paper cups as they become available, the cPLA cornstarch lids sell alongside these to customers looking to move to biodegradable disposables.

These are available from stock straight away, you can find them in any of the paper cup categories on the site, or directly in the sip through coffee cup lids category:https://innsupplies.com/disposable/paper-cups/domed-sip-lids-for-paper-cups
