Printed Cup Company doubles capacity with the addition of a new machine

Printed Cup Company is proud to be the fastest manufacturer of printed paper cups in the UK with speedy lead times as fast as 24 hours. Customer service, quality products and a quick response to our customers needs are of up most importance to us and we are always striving to go above and beyond for our customers. That is why we are proud to announce that we have recently acquired a new screen printing machine that enables us to double our production capacity and decrease lead times of screen printed products within the Printed Cup Company.


During peak times where demand is at its highest, the Printed Cup Company finds that production capability is almost at capacity leaving little room for last minute jobs that require a speedy turnaround. The new screen printer, known as the IDF Conical Printer enables us to produce double the amount of screen printed products than our previous capacity or if our customers require, extremely fast lead times. We have specifically designed this machine to enable us to set up and changeover designs in a much shorter space of time giving us a decrease in production time with increased flexibility and a greater capacity to meet and exceed our customers needs.

What is screen printing?

Screen printing is used to transfer an image or logo from a stencil onto the surface you want to print on, in this case, paper or plastic cups. The stencil is made in the form of a ‘screen’ that is then covered in ink. The cup is then placed on a specialised roller that moves the cup evenly across the screen in a rolling motion, causing the brand, logo or design from the stencil to be printed on the cup in the chosen colour of ink. The ink then needs to dry for 24 hours and voila! It’s as simple as that! One of the main benefits of this printing method is that the screen can be used over and over again making re-prints a simple and cost effective process.
