There are many printing methods for lidded cups, and different printing methods have different printing characteristics.

Offset printing is based on the principle of mutual repulsion between oil and water. The film propaganda paper cup is divided into lipophilic and water-resistant, and the blank part is hydrophilic and oil-resistant, and the graphics and text are transferred to the substrate through the blanket roller.

The advantage of offset printing paper cups is that the pattern is full, bright and high in definition. Whether it is a gradient or a small and fine line, it can be better displayed, making the appearance of the paper cup more beautiful and attracting the attention of customers. But offset printing is not suitable for printing edible paper cups, because offset printing ink is not very good.

Screen printing has great flexibility and applicability due to its soft and elastic layout. It is not only suitable for printing on soft items such as paper and cloth, but also for printing on hard items, and is not affected by the surface shape and area of ​​the lidded cup.

However, the advantages of screen printing paper cups cannot be fully reflected, and screen printing has great shortcomings in the reproduction of images and texts, and it is difficult to deal with gradients and reproduce image accuracy.

Flexo printing is called green printing due to the use of water-based inks. Now many companies' product packaging is developing in the direction of flexo printing.

Due to the relatively simple structure of the flexo printing machine, the flexo printing machine is thin compared to the bulky body and expensive material cost of the offset printing machine. In terms of cost, the equipment investment of a flexo printing machine is lower than that of an offset printing machine of the same scale, which can generally save as much as 30% to 40%. The small production investment attracts small printing enterprises to join.
