CupPrint was founded in 2009 by printed paper cup entrepreneur Terry Fox. 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 printed paper cup industry equipment and the market it served.
This type of equipment catered to very large cafe and coffee shop chains in the most economical way. But when it came to the majority of the market, which is made up of independent cafes and small chain coffee shops, there were too many barriers to enter the branded cup game.
The standard high-volume runs and long lead times didn’t suit these smaller busineses. CupPrint 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.
