Suitable for internal and external marketing
The printed cups help companies to profile themselves well. Also for internal branding. This works from the inside-outside principle, whereby you build your brand from the internal organizational structure. A printed cardboard coffee cup helps with this. Coffee is very important for staff in the Netherlands. If this coffee is drunk from a nice cup with the logo of your company, this ultimately translates into greater employee involvement. It works roughly the same for external marketing. For example, at a trade show you can pour your coffee in beautifully printed coffee cups, which will make your coffee cup stand out. When a visitor walks with your coffee cup, this coffee cup will also stand out among other visitors.
