Straws Product Categories Straw Lengths Colors and applications Wrapped vs. Unwrapped Film Wrap vs. Paper Wrap Printed Wrappers
Straws: Product Categories Slim – milk, stirrers & sippers. Jumbo – most common. Sodas, fruit juices and drinks with little or no thickness. Super Jumbo – slightly thicker drinks such as tomato juice. Giant – thick shakes and malts or slush drinks. Spoon straw – specialty straw for slush drinks
Straws: Lengths Range from 5 inches up to 16 inches or more. Dictated by the depth of the cup. As straw lengths get longer (over 10 inches), the straw diameter is bigger, i.e. Super Jumbo or Giant. Longer straws are usually wrapped.
Straws: Colors/Applications White with red stripe – white was the color of paper straws. Made for easy transition to plastic. Red stripe visual helped differentiate plastic from paper. Clear – the reason there are crazy straws. Kids like to see the flow of liquids. Red/Black/Green – used to help differentiate between drinks, i.e. diet vs. regular, alcoholic vs. non-alcoholic, malt vs. shake and so on.
Straws: Wrapped vs. Unwrapped Wrapped straws provide a clean, dust free and sanitary straw for customers Wrapped straws can be customized with printing Unwrapped straws are more cost effective and used in dispenser application Unwrapped straws provide convenience and speed in a “fast-serve” environment.
Film Wrap vs. Paper Wrap Subjective evaluation – some like it and some don’t like it. Film Wrap will not absorb water like paper wraps. Film Wrap will not smudge like paper wrap. Film Wrap is not easily seen on the floor leading to slip hazard and jam-ups with vacuuming equipment. Some mistake a film wrapped straw for an unwrapped straw until it is in their drink. Paper Wrap is better for highlighting print.
Straws: Printed Wrappers Low cost. Name recognition and advertising. Up to 2 color print available. Easy way to customize a product and lock up a customer’s straw business.
Straws: Summary Available in Slim, Jumbo, Super Jumbo, Giant and Spoon straw Available in lengths of 5 inches up to 16 inches (wrapped) or longer (unwrapped). Available in standard white with red stripe and translucent or red, black, blue, etc. Available in wrapped and unwrapped. Available with printed paper wrappers.
