Plastic cups can show off your company brand and personality, and they serve as an excellent and cost-effective advertising tool. In situations where glasses and other formal serving pieces aren’t plausible, plastic cups provide an excellent way to serve hot or cold drinks to customers and guests. These cups come in many different styles. Staples® carries a large selection of plastic tableware to choose from, including disposable plates, utensils, and service items.

Serve Beverages at Work and Home With Plastic Cups
Disposable plastic cups are an excellent choice for company break rooms, outdoor gatherings, in classrooms, and in daycare centers for an easy cleanup. They stack easily, so they take up little counter space or room in a storage closet, and they are recyclable, which is ideal for companies who look for ways to reduce waste.

Available Options for Plastic Cups
These disposable cups come in a variety different color options and styles. Choose patterns like florals or bold colors such as blue and red to coordinate with a party or event. Translucent cups allow users to easily see the contents or the amount of liquid inside. Small cups are ideal for children and specialty drinks. Large cups hold soft drinks, tea, and other cold drinks at picnics, barbecues, and other gatherings. Cups with matching lids work well to reduce steam and to keep hot beverages hot. They also reduce the likelihood of spills and accidents. Smooth cups provide an even surface for adding a sticker logo or a line of print, while cups with double sidewall ridges increase the strength and make them easier to hold.

How Many Ounces Do Standard Plastic Cups Hold?
Plastic cups generally range in size from 5 to 16 ounces. A standard break room coffee cup holds around 12 ounces, while cold beverage cups hold around 16 ounces. Small tumblers are ideal for mixed drinks and juice and hold around 5 ounces. Larger cups are also available, in sizes ranging from 32 to 64 ounces.

Are Plastic Cups Sold in Bulk?
Most disposable cups are sold in small packages of around 12 to 24 for birthday parties and small events. They also come in bulk bundles ranging from 200 to 2,000, making it easy and more affordable for restaurants, catering companies, and concessions to stock up.

What Types of Materials Are Used to Make Plastic Cups?
There are two basic cups types: Polypropylene (PP) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). PP cups work well with hot drinks because they have heat resistance of up to 248 degrees Fahrenheit. They feel thin to the touch but are cost effective and lightweight. PET plastic is thicker and more durable. However, it is made for cold beverages. PET feels sturdy and stands up well to refills.

How Is Thermal Conductivity Measured in Plastic Cups?
Thermal conductivity is described in terms of how fast a unit of heat or British Thermal Unit (BTU) travels through one foot of material in one hour at a difference of 1 degree Fahrenheit. The lower the number, the better the substance holds heat. Plastic has a thermal conductivity rating of around 0.35 to 0.69, compared to glass at 1.82. This heat rating makes plastic an excellent choice for serving coffee and hot chocolate.
