Printed paper cup entrepreneur, Terry Fox, founded Cup Print 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 industry’s 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. Cup Print 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.
