Scyphus has been manufacturing paper packaging for the food and beverages industry for over a decade now. But over the years, although we have expanded our factory with newer and newer, state of the art Paper Cup Machines, we always outsourced the Printing to our trusted local printers. But, with out ever growing cup business, demand for other packaging products are being placed to, and our customers today want us to provide them with turn key branding solutions. That is not just paper cups, but all possible printed merchandise and branded packaging they require has to come from Scyphus.
Beyond that, there was another problem, we were out growing our printers, and we decided to get a printer unit of our on, inside our factory premises. That would not only solve our print ordering delay handling, it’ll also allow us in providing all sorts of printed packaging solutions to your existing customers and also at the same time, attract new customers and expand our horizons, after all there is no limit to what you want to achieve.
Our journey from a paper cup manufacturer to a turn key printed packaging solution provider has found a mention in the prestigious Print Week on 28th February, 2019.
We are now offering all printed paper merendillase and packaging to our customers, our customers being mostly automotive showrooms, coffee shops, takeaways, delicatessen and exhibitors, their regular print requirements do not limit to paper cups and napkins only, all of them require indoor/outdoor posters, roll up banners and branded envelopes, business cards, flyers of all sorts, folded or flat and all sorts of printed stationary and promotional stuff like branded calendars and diaries. We hope to cater to them all and provide them with an end to end solution.
Scyphus has invested in a five-colour Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 74 perfector to bring printing in-house. What that means to us immense. Right from streamlining the production process by eliminating the uncertainty of an external entity on which we have no control, to having more control over quality of our products. We indeed needed to invest into a top line printer any time soon, so the Board of Directors decided, why not 2019.
A lot had to be done, new space for something as gargantuan as the Speedmaster, new Electricals, new Foundations and Cement Work and everything for a complete print shop. We had to get everything done before the printer arrived in two containers, and the the installation experts arrived.
But all said, this is something we have been excited about recently, and now that we are ready, we definitely expect to provide even better customer satisfaction to our existing customers, and with an expanded product and service range, serve them a much complete range of products and services.
All over the world, hundreds of governments and environment protection organisations are actively pursuing banning of single use plastics. The oceans are practically jam packed with plastic waste, so are the land fills. China and many other countries are now refusing waste dumping on their land, and thus for small island countries like the United Kingdom, plastic waste is becoming a serious concern.
We at Scyphus, have been actively promoting BioBoard ™ based Biodegradable an Compostable Paper Cups and other Packaging Products too. In recent years, the last one year and a little more to be precise, response has been good and customers are increasingly asking for Biodegradable Paper Cups and other Packaging Products.
Now, to clarify, paper packaging that doesn’t need to be heat or water proof are biodegradable naturally, since they don’t need the thin PE plastic coating on their inside, the concern is with packaging that requires plastic lining for water or moisture proofing, that is where the BioBoard ™ comes in. The BioBoard ™ is a biodegradable PLA ( made from corn starch ) Bio Plastic coated paper board of the highest quality. and thus is 100% biodegradable, unlike the PE plastic coated paper that requires separation of the plastic barrier before it can be recycled.
On another note, our products are not just Biodegradable, they are responsible products at several levels. We don’t just print and manufacture your packaging, we ensure that you can showcase your brand as a responsible and green product too. We obtain the papers from FSC and PEFC certified paper mills only. These mills follow sustainable forestry and don’t allow depletion of forest cover by planting special trees that grow quickly and planned lumbering.
You can proudly display, sustainable and biodegradable icons on your products.
Printed Packaging instead of generic boxes and bags, are no more limited to luxury products, they have become a necessity, for brand and product promotion, brand identity and even for providing mandatory product information. But not all printed packaging are born the same, some, indeed are luxury items. Those printed and manufactured at our facility in Little Houghton indeed are.
The best in class paper and ink, the best in top of the line printing press, and skilled and competent printers and technicians, the result is exquisite quality that adds brand value to your products and literally elevates them one or two notches high in product visibility.
