3 Great Uses for Printed Coffee Cups

Printed disposable coffee cups are no new thing. They’ve been used by businesses as an offline marketing strategy for years, as well as looking visually appealing to customers. However, there may be more benefits to a printed coffee cups than you realise!

1. As Part of An Effective Branding Strategy

Many companies use customised printed coffee cups to showcase their logo or branding colours. In fact, paper cup advertising is one of the most successful under the radar offline marketing strategies for food businesses. For one, with the British population having an infamous coffee addiction, there’s no better way to spread your brand quickly to the masses.

Secondly, with your customers holding a coffee cup in their hand for the entire period they enjoy their hot drink, they’re less likely to be ignored than brochures or leaflets which can quickly get forgotten about. You also don’t have to be selling hot drinks to benefit from using branded coffee cups. Branded coffee cups can be filled with cold drinks, sweets, crisps, alcoholic beverages, or even ice cream!

Even if you offer a service or a non-edible product, printed coffee cups can still be used as part of your marketing strategy. If you’re targeting a specific audience with your business, why not hand out your personalised coffee cups at a location you’ll know they’ll be, such as a school, co-working space, or networking event? It’s a quick and effective way to get the message out to the right people.
