Secret Message / Paper Cup

Secret Message
Secret Message

The idea is to propose a paper cup which prevents people from deforming or altering the shape of their takeout beverage paper cup. Only some areas of the bottom of the cup is coated therefore after drinking the beverage certain parts get stained. Also after drinking the consumer can see the hidden image of a coin. The consumer remembers that the cup is worth money so they return it for recycling and a small refund fee.
