The history of our creative company, innovative business processes, and dedicated team!
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.
“Considering the previous ventures I’ve been involved in, which deal with high-quality print packaging in the fastest delivery times, printed cups have been the most rewarding. We feel we genuinely solved a huge market problem and customers love what we do.” – Terry Fox, Founder & CEO

CupPrint’s business model is more about technology, customer service, and fast delivery, rather than mass-volume production that’s only economical at scale. Being located in the heart of the U.S. surrounded by a skilled workforce is essential for sustainability and success.
Made in the USA
Direct from our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in South Bend, Indiana, our printed cups are truly made in the USA.
CupPrint’s manufacturing plant’s presence has been integral to the redevelopment of Downtown South Bend. CupPrint is collaborating with select South Bend-based companies on the renovation of the Renaissance District. This project is redefining a portion of the Rust Belt region. At the heart of this rejuvenation is the redevelopment of the Studebaker plant into a mixed-use technology campus for the next generation of innovators to call home. CupPrint is proud to be a part of this project that’s bringing much-needed manufacturing jobs back to the Midwest.
