Packaging specialist, 4 Aces is on course to double the production of its bespoke, printed products by the end of the year following a general increase in requirement for branded cups.

The company has recorded a surge in the demand for bespoke, environmentally-friendly products, with the supplier’s latest compostable, PLA hot cups proving popular for those who want to associate their brand with a green alternative. Available in 8oz, 12oz and 16oz sizes, the cups are sold alongside compostable sip lids to complement the offering.

Along with the biodegradable range, 4 Aces also reports an increase in bespoke paper receptacles for the water cooler market, with some operators opting to replace plastic cups with paper as part of their overall housekeeping review.

David Blake, sales director of 4 Aces, confirms the company’s plans to further drive sales of printed items: “It’s a fairly obvious initiative as, like any typical commercial concern, we are driven by customer demand. Branded cups, in particular, are very much on trend at the moment as these cups provide a fast and effective way of getting your name out there and provide one of the cheapest forms of advertising and promotion.”
