Sleeve Sizes

Sleeve SizesWe offer a variety of sleeves sizes to choose from depending on your needs (some sizes incur a surcharge due to needing to change over equipment). Below are our most common sizes, however we do have the ability to custom make sleeves for almost all cups. We do have custom dies for smoothie and and cold cups as well.

  • 12oz – 20oz – (Minimum 1250 order) Sleeves fit standard 12oz, 16oz and 20oz cups. This is the most common sleeve size used. Please note each size of cup (12, 16 and 20oz) has a different tapered edge and so the sleeve will not fit all cup sizes the same
  • 10oz – 12oz – (Minimum 3750 order) Most commonly ordered when using 10oz cups (Sucharge applies)
  • 8oz – (Minimum 3750 order) For use with only with 8oz cups. We offer two slightly different 8oz sleeves to best fit your cup (Sucharge applies)

PLEASE NOTE : Our cup sleeves are meant to be used with single wall hot cups and will not fit double walled cups. In addition, our sleeves will fit industry standard size cups, however not all manufactured cups are the same and so the fit can vary. 


Sleeve Sizes

Our thick 23pt CCNB paper, crafted from 100% recycled fiber, offers superior print quality with a semi-gloss finish on the printing side and recycled newsprint backside. Depending upon your preference, you can choose either a glossy or matte coating to be applied to the sleeves for maximum color vibrancy or subtlety respectively.


Instead of actually printing on Kraft paper, we print a simulated Kraft background on white paper and apply a matte coating. This way, light colors will stay vibrant and attractive without looking dull or murky like they would when printed directly onto Kraft!


Our coffee sleeves come with a checkerboard embossed texture, aiding in providing extra grip to reduce heat transfer. However, if you order 2500 or more of our paper cup holders, you have the option to upgrade and select a smooth version without an embossed pattern – which has become popular among many people!
