Pinch-n-Mark / Paper cup

Pinch-n-Mark
Pinch-n-Mark

We need juices and other beverages in picnics, BBQs, and parties, and of course we also need paper cups. Unfortunately, paper cups are bought in bulk and all look the same. So, how can you find your own cup out of a party of 20?

Pinch-n-Mark paper cup have 20 lines marked from 1 to 20 on the outside of the cup. Pick your own number and pinch a crease along that numbered line to identify your cup. Not only that you won’t get your cups mixed up again, that crease actually may make drinking that much easier. Suppose there are more than 20 people, you can always pinch more than once.
