Custom Printed Hot Cups – Recyclable ReCups

The ReCup offers the same strength and insulation as our custom double-walled hot cups, with the added feature of being recyclable! Perfect for your hot or cold to-go beverages, ReCups make a big statement with photo-quality, full coverage print. And you can skip the sleeves!

These double-walled cups are made with EarthCoating®  on the inside, an innovative coating that reduces the plastic content in the cup by as much as 51%, making the cup recyclable through select recycling programs. Check with your local recycling program about ReCup collection in your area.

ReCup recycling is not available everywhere (but the demand is growing!). The EarthCoating® reduces the amount of plastic in the interior by as much as 51%, which allows the paper content of the cup to be pulped and converted into recycled paper.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is full bleed printing available for custom recyclable ReCups?

Yes! With the exception of the unprinted area at the base of the cup, where the outer wall is attached, our Custom Recyclable ReCups can be printed with full ink coverage. Your design can completely wrap around the cup. The only caveat is with a design element that wraps around--like a line or a bar--we cannot guarantee that it will perfectly align with itself at the seam on the cup.

Will I get to see a proof before you produce my order?

Yes! For new artwork, we will email you a digital proof of your cup design for approval. Production lead time begins after proof approval and payment are received.

When will I receive my order?

Current estimated lead time for this product is 16 weeks after proof approval and receipt of payment. Lead time is not guaranteed, and does not include transit time. Actual lead times may vary due to material availability.
