Surprising, but true, since some Paper Cup Printers/Paper Cup Manufacturers in UK have contracted manufacturing facilities somewhere in Southern China!
When you are looking for a native UK cup printer company to print and build your paper cups, you are actually looking at some company in China that ghost produces for the UK company you have relied your business upon.
But unlike in several other industries and trades, where the benefit ( if any ) of lower quality but cheaper products reach the end user, in our industry, it is not exactly that.
But that's easy to understand, you do not get the benfit becuase you are not the customer here.
The cost benefit of producing in low labour cost centers like China doesn't percolate to the end user at all. It actually goes to the company who doesn't have to maintain a manufacturing facility in UK.
But, if a company is importing them at a lower cost than they'd cost if manufactured in UK, why wouldn't an end-customer benefit?
It is contrary to what you think, you are generally paying much more per cup than that you'd have paid if they were manufactured locally, since you are burdened with the cost of transporting the cups on a fast track shipment from China to UK, and all this happens without your knowledge.
All delays at the Manufacturers end, port delays and any other unforeseen events are burdens to the end customer while this entire mode of business that you are generating, is not adding to the British economy much.
Our earnest endeavour from the inception of Scyphus had been to provide a complete end-to-end support to customers in UK and across Europe. That is why we never opted for getting our cups manufactured in China or some other low labour cost country, and have always manufactured in UK, at our Northampton facility.
We are proud to be a 100% UK Manufacturer, and are equally proud of contributing directly to the British economy from the very beginning of our journey.
From our manufacturing unit at Northampton, we manufacture and print your printed paper cup from the highest quality 300 gsm or thicker boards.
We print on them at our precision print unit at the highest printing quality with the best and safest ink available, and then our state of the art cup manufacturing unit makes those beautiful printed paper cups out of these high quality printed sheets.
