We set up our business as Quickfire Tableware Ltd in 2001 with the aim of giving customers the opportunity to use custom printed crockery and glassware with no minimum order quantities. We wanted our customers to order the exact quantity they needed, when they needed it.
In order to offer this great service, we invested in the latest kiln technology and built up deep stocks of all our advertised products. Since these beginnings we have expanded our range and now stock the widest selection of coffee cups available in the UK. We set up our website - coffeecups.co.uk - to showcase our products and get our message out there.
In 2005, we purpose built our factory and offices in Sheffield. This has enabled us to increase our production capacity and our stock holding, further improving the speed of our no minimum order quantity service.
The company is still owned and managed by the founders; Kate and Simon Martin. Our expert team are always on hand to deal with your enquiry, whether you are searching for cups to start a coffee shop, or wanting to place a repeat order. Continuity is our watchword - continuity of product design, quality and service.
We are unique in the market for offering no minimum order quantities on custom printed logo applications and plain crockery items, and our ability to offer split boxes gives our customers the opportunity to not only get short runs on different items or ranges, but also to mix and match colours within a range.
All of our stock is available for purchase individually, however we can also provide discounts for bulk orders upon request.
Our logo printing service is the jewel in our crown. Aside from holding large numbers of stock in our custom-built warehouse, we also have our own on-site silk screen printing workshop where our experienced printers create our logo decals to order. We also hold an archive of logos so we can send you your reorders quickly.
All of our printed logo decals are applied to the crockery and glassware by hand, by the team of dedicated Decorators and then sent to our on-site set of kilns to be fired. This process fires the logo decals deep into the crockery glaze, ensuring a durable and high quality finish.
