Style Of the Takeaway Cup Holder
Different types of styles for takeaway cup holders can be used. These cup holders are not only used to provide customers with a beverage but can also be used to carry cups at the back by using a dispenser style with a lower opening and taking out one cup after another.
Another style that can be adopted is the display style. It’s like a big tray with multiple inserts to place different cups inside.
Besides that, you can make the holder seal end or tuck the end at the bottom as well.
There are a lot of shapes that could be inducted for takeaway cup holders. It can be square, rectangular, triangular, star, or even circular as a brand desires.
As a cup carrier mostly gable shapes are used because of their attractiveness. It depends on the brand, that how the brand wants it.
Designing – An Important Factor
Having a design is very important. Café brands and bakeries who want to use these cup holders must have a specific design for their business that may be a logo. Design is very important and should not be ignored as it is the way to source and market your business.
The design also helps the customer to keep them reminded about the café or bakery from where they took the beverage from. So, it is highly encouraged to have a design that is product and brand-specific.
Printing should be given importance. It really matters where you print your logo.
Before confirming printing make sure to have the printed elements at a place where it is easy for the customer to see and remember the place from where they got the beverage from.
Cup-holders are just to hold the cups and sometimes like for example for paper pulp there is no need to have proper finishing because that is a tray and the buyer will not take it too far from the café or bakery that he or she needs to remember the name.
But in the case of cardboard and other materials which act as a form of a carrier that can be taken far from the initial source should have proper finishing. The reason is that now your brand’s beverages are taken away from the place. And there might be others who are enjoying the same beverage. So, they can see your café or bakery name. Even the person who took the beverage can remember the place because of the smooth touch.
Rough touch and texture will not work at all.
Add-ons can play an important role. And in the case of takeaway cup holders, they are necessary to be used. Your takeaway cup holders can have multiple partitions, inserts, handles, and carriers. All these are add-ons that play a very important role in attracting the product to the customer either he buys or views it.
