Screen Printing Your Foam Cups

Foam cups provide an economical and efficient way to offer custom branding for your customers. It can take up to 12 brand exposures for your customers to recognize you. So give yourself the tools to help build your customer’s brand recognition.

Printing foam cups is one of the most popular entry points for printers to get into when beginning a promotional business. One of the reasons is the demand and ease of printing. You may use solvent or UV inks. Since the cups are disposable, you don't have to concern yourself with pretreatment. UV inks offer instant curing while solvent based inks may take a few minutes prior to completely curing.

Foam cups may be air dried for curing, put through forced hot air or IR treatment if solvent based inks are being used. The quickest option for printing your cups is UV as the cure is instant, which also makes it ideal for multi-color printing.
