Innovation for your business.

The history of our innovative business processes, revolutionary printing strategy, and dedicated team!

Printed paper cup entrepreneur, Terry Fox, founded CupPrint in 2009. With a background in high-speed commercial printing and packaging, he noticed something wrong with the way the printed paper cup industry operated – a disconnect between the capabilities of the mainstream printed paper cup business’ equipment and the market it served.

The industry’s equipment provided economical options to very large cafe and coffee shop chains. But when it came to the majority of the market, which is made up of independent cafes and small chain coffee shops, things weren’t so economically-friendly.

In particular, the standard high-volume order requirements and long lead times marked by the mainstream equipment, put these smaller businesses at a competitive disadvantage. CupPrint set out to solve these problems by leaning on the latest technologies, innovations never before used in this industry – including 3D digital design preview capabilities.

Considering the previous ventures I’ve been involved in, which deal with high-quality print packaging in the fastest delivery times, printed cups have been the most rewarding. We feel we genuinely solved a huge market problem and customers love what we do.” – Terry Fox, Founder & CEO

Our Mission

Bring the opportunity to brand through printed paper cups to a more diverse segment.

CupPrint took paper cup printing’s traditional business model and turned it upside down and inside out, making it more flexible for other markets. By leaning on top-notch technology and attention to the importance of customer service, CupPrint redefined the abilities of the custom paper cup printing industry – less unit order minimum, faster delivery time, and, well, with our focus on customer service, more attention to detail.

This is our promise to you. This is the CupPrint advantage.

Innovation for your business

Our promise to customers.

Innovation for your business.

In a study completed by the Dortmund Institute for Marketing Consulting, a branded paper cup was proven to create up to 34 new contacts for a single business. The study also found that 70% of people can actually recall and describe the branding on a cup long after seeing it. No wonder large coffee chains have branded cups.
