Customised Biodegradable Single Wall Paper Cups (SW) are ideal for cold drinks and events like festivals, shows, or picnics.

Branded single wall environmentally-friendly paper cups are an excellent way for companies to convey their advertising messages or logo to a broad audience.

SW eco-friendly paper cups have a Single Wall. Therefore, they have the lowest heat insulation, so they are far from perfect for drinking hot tea or coffee. They fit best in all the takeaway setups, like at festivals, picnics, or sports events. Some clients use them at the gym for protein shakes, others for lemonade or smoothies, soft drinks, and some even for cold beer or other drinks at party clubs or festivals.


It is a paper cup that is fully biodegradable. In its production, we use paper coated with a safe for people and the environment water-based barrier instead of PLA, so according to a common understanding of the SUP directive, you do not have to use the “plastic in product” logo, but to be sure, check your latest national regulations.

Low thermal insulation (SW)

It is a Single Wall Paper Cup (SW) whose walls consist of only one layer of paper and, therefore, has the lowest thermal insulation. In the case of hot drinks, they can burn hands, so it is best suited for cold drinks such as juice or water.

Branded biodegradable paper cups customised with individually printed logo: KPI-400SW-BIO (10) Single Wall (SW-BIO) biodegradable ECO paper cup 400-450 ml, 16 oz with customised Logo print, and L90-PS-BL (02) black 90 mm coffee lid (774)

For water and cold drinks

This cup is ideal when you need a water cup for your employees or customers, want to sample your beverages or simply consume large quantities of cups. It is often ordered for beverage vending machines or water dispensers. Its undeniable advantage is the price – both the cost of its production and transport is the lowest.

High-quality print

The print on this cup is outstanding, and the colours are crisp, although not as saturated as on the double wall paper cups. Especially on the large homogeneous surfaces, slight non-uniformities may appear because the waterproof paper absorbs less paint than the smoothed paper used in the outer layer of double-layer paper cups. The print finish is to be chosen based on availability, and each time requires confirmation. Otherwise, it will be random.

KPI-400SW Single Wall Eco-Friendly Paper Cups 400-450 ml / 16 oz with Custom Print

are ideal for a multitude of occasions and venues. These custom-printed, individually designed eco-friendly paper cups are the perfect canvas for showcasing your brand, logo, or personalised message. Crafted with precision and care, these sustainable paper cups are not only practical but also serve as a unique branding opportunity.

The below scenarios showcase the versatility of Rainbowcups single-wall paper cups, making them a valuable asset for various industries and occasions. Whether it’s promoting your brand in the office using eco-friendly paper cups, keeping people refreshed at picnics with custom-printed paper cups, or adding a touch of uniqueness to fitness centres and entertainment venues with environmentally-safe paper cups, Rainbowcups custom-printed paper cups make a statement wherever they’re used.


  1. Office Water with Biodegradable Paper Cups:

    In many office settings, customised single-wall paper cups with your company logo are a good idea for self-serving water, but it is the smaller size 180-200 ml (7 oz) paper cups that fit the best majority of water dispensers. These recyclable paper cups promote hydration while reinforcing your brand identity, making them an excellent addition to offices, waiting rooms, and client meeting areas.


  2. Trade Shows and Expos featuring Custom-Printed Environmentally-Friendly Paper Cups:

    Stand out at trade shows and exhibitions with your individually designed 400-450 ml (16 oz) sustainable single-wall paper cups. These paper cups, featuring your company logo, are the perfect size for serving beverages that keep attendees refreshed throughout the event.


  3. Corporate Conferences and Events with Eco-Friendly Paper Cups:

    Elevate your corporate events with Rainbowcups 400-450 ml (16 oz) custom-branded single-wall paper cups. These perfectly sized environmentally-friendly paper cups are not only practical but also an ideal canvas to showcase your brand, logo, or personalised message.


  4. Outdoor Picnics and Events using Custom-Branded Recyclable Paper Cups:

    Host outdoor picnics and events with style using your 400-450 ml (16 oz) custom-branded paper cups. These paper cups add a personal touch to your gatherings while serving cold beverages like lemonade, iced water, or fruit punch.


  5. Educational Institutions with Environmentally-Safe Paper Cups:

    For educational institutions, Rainbowcups single-wall paper cups are just the right size for events like open houses, fundraisers, and sports days. Serve chilled drinks with your institution’s pride and spirit displayed on each paper cup. For water, we think rather the size 180-200 ml (7 oz) paper cups would better fit the majority of water dispensers.


  6. Kindergartens using Custom-Printed Green Paper Cups:

    Kindergartens are places of creativity, learning, and fun, and your custom-printed paper cups fit perfectly into this environment. These paper cups, featuring delightful designs and perhaps the kindergarten’s logo, are a charming way to serve water and other beverages to young learners. They not only promote hydration but also create a sense of belonging and identity within the kindergarten community, making each cup a memorable part of a child’s day. For kids, we think rather the size 180-200 ml (7 oz) or 200-250 ml (8 oz) paper cups would be more convenient, though.


  7. Healthcare Facilities with Hygienic and Practical Ecologically Sound Paper Cups:

    In clinics and dental offices, Rainbowcups custom-branded single-wall paper cups are hygienic and practical. Patients can stay refreshed while waiting for appointments, and your clinic’s logo on each paper cup adds a professional touch to the environment. In our opinion, though, the size of 400-450 ml (16 oz) paper cups is much too large for such setups.


  8. Fitness Centres and Gyms with Custom-Printed Environment-Friendly Paper Cups:

    Fitness enthusiasts at gyms appreciate your 400-450 ml (16 oz) custom-printed paper cups for their protein shakes and refreshing drinks. These paper cups are the right size for serving beverages to keep gym-goers energized and motivated during their workouts.


  9. Artisan Cafés and Bakeries showcasing Unique Brand with Environmentally-Friendly Paper Cups:

    At artisan cafés and bakeries, where every detail matters, Rainbowcups 400-450 ml (16 oz) custom-printed paper cups shine. Although they’re not suited for hot beverages, they are perfect for showcasing your unique brand while serving cold brews, fruit juices, or smoothies.


  10. Food Trucks and Street Vendors choosing Eco-Friendly Paper Cups for Refreshing Offerings:

    Whether you’re selling chilled desserts, freshly squeezed juices, or iced teas, Rainbowcups custom-printed 400-450 ml (16 oz) paper cups are an excellent choice for mobile food businesses. They’re the perfect size for your refreshing offerings.


  11. Sampling Events with Portable Biodegradable Paper Cups:

    During promotional events, companies often use individualised paper cups to offer samples of their products, such as beverages or snacks. The paper cups are easily portable and allow consumers to try different items. But for such usage, we would instead suggest paper cups of a much smaller capacity, like 80-100 ml (8 oz) or 180-200 ml (7 oz).


  12. Entertainment Venues enhancing experience with Custom-Printed Sustainable Paper Cups:

    For party clubs and festivals, your custom-printed 400-450 ml (16 oz) paper cups offer a stylish way to serve cold beer and other beverages. These paper cups, with your unique design, can enhance the overall experience for patrons at any entertainment event.

The print colours on Single Wall (SW) eco-friendly paper cups have significantly less saturation than in other types of paper cups.

The maximum percentage of the process inks (sum of 4 CMYK components) on matt single wall eco paper cups (SW) is 140%. As a result, the colours are much less saturated than in the case of DW and TW cups. In particular, dark colours are pale, and black becomes grey. This effect is more visible when choosing matte finishing.

When ordering SW paper cups, always confirm the availability of the type of finish (gloss/matte), otherwise it will be produced and delivered randomly.

These biodegradable paper cups are definitely the cheapest custom printed eco paper cups with large volumes.

These environmentally-safe paper cups are available with individual printing, which is available in rainbowcups starting from 1000 pieces (depending on the cups size/capacity). They are perfectly matching with our lids and birchwood stirrers. To see more pictures and videos of this sustainable paper cup and other products, check our portfolio page.

Comparing Single-Wall (SW) and Thermal Double-Wall ECO Paper Cups (TW).

While single-wall eco-friendly paper cups are not designed for hot drinks due to their limited heat insulation, thermal double-wall biodegradable paper cups excel in this area. Thermal double-wall ecological paper cups are ideal for serving hot coffee, tea, or other warm beverages while still offering custom branding opportunities.

These branded Single Wall ECO Paper Cups (SW) insulate heat the least of all types of custom-printed paper cups.

The above-provided delivery times are valid for courier service only (for example, GLS courier parcels). Please read all the remarks below. Please also take into consideration that we cannot start production until the graphic design is finished (on the rainbowcups design template), checked and accepted, so the delivery time is also depending on you.

Delivery time

Delivery time is counted from the moment of acceptance of graphic design on the rainbowcups template and incoming of the prepayment (both conditions have to be fulfilled).

Delivery time will be additionally prolonged by all the holidays or days free of work that occur in the meantime.

If you want us to deliver to Great Britain, Switzerland, Norway, northern Sweden, Finland or any other remote areas or islands, it may take about 1 week more to deliver there on top of what we state. Prices apply only for the European continental part of countries, so do not expect us to deliver, for example, to Greenland, French Guiana or Canary Islands or any other islands using these…

We do not agree on Incoterm EXW (clients’ transport and pick up of goods from our warehouse).

If you want us to deliver by Euro pallet service

For quantities of goods of about one, two euro pallets or more, sometimes it might be cheaper or safer to deliver goods on euro pallets, especially to some main cities. It is not a general rule as for some products or destinations, the package service will always be cheaper, especially in the case of any remote areas.

Please remember that when choosing Euro pallet delivery, there is no bringing the parcel into the premises included nor the help of the driver with the unpacking. If you do not have a warehouse with a ramp, and you need a car with a lift – you need to stress this out.

If you want us to calculate the euro pallets shipment cost, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and provide us with: the quantity of goods ordered, SKUs, destination country, postal code and city so that we can return to you with a quotation the next day. Delivery time might also slightly differ from the above.

Taxes and customs

Please check your company’s VAT number at VIES: https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/, if you are eligible for 0% VAT intra-Community supply of goods within the EU. For deliveries outside Poland but within the EU, VAT does not apply – it is 0%. If you do not have a valid EU VAT number, we must add 23% VAT to your order. For deliveries outside the EU, customers must pay all the additional taxes like VAT, and import customs (we deliver according to GLS “Incoterm 40 DAP, cleared”).

An additional fee applies per each order or shipment (not package) for customs clearance of every separate shipment to the UK, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia or anywhere else outside the EU. Due to customs clearance procedures, it is impossible to send goods directly to customers outside the EU in a no-name fashion (without our invoice inside). In courier service, we deliver according to GLS “Incoterm 40 DAP, cleared” delivery terms, so it means that usually, you also have to pay VAT and import customs if they apply in your home country. In the case of pallet service, depending on the provider, the delivery terms might differ. Customs clearance time, and therefore delivery time, also depends on your efficiency and cooperation with customs officials.


Rainbowcups is responsible for defects in products sold within 6 months of delivery (tested according to ISO 2859, AQL of 2,5 for leaking).
