Minimum volume of purchase order for paper cups

The minimum purchase order for paper cups with a custom print is 500 units / size.
For orders up to 5000 units cups are printed in CMYK technology. For orders of 5000 units and more we use CMYK or PANTONE.

For orders up to 1000 units we use digital print technology. For orders of 1000 units and more we use offset print.

For orders of 5000 units and more (CMYK) customers can order more than one graphic version, e.g. 2500 cups DL-CG_250 with graphic version 1 + 2500 cups DLCG_250 with graphic version 2. The maximum number of graphic versions depends on the cup volume and is presented in the table below.
