Plastic Cup Size Comparison

Which size do I need?

Are you unsure which size cup to order for your upcoming party, shower, wedding or other event? This guide will help you decide which plastic cup size you need. The images below demonstrate how each cup will hold a 12-oz. beverage, which is the standard size for a can of soda or beer.

Plastic cups are typically measured in ounces. Our sizes range from 5 ounces to 32 ounces. Most plastic cups show a number on the bottom to indicate maximum-ounce capacity.

As a rule, drinkware size is measured to the brim. For example, a 12-oz. cup will hold 12 ounces of liquid, but it will be filled all the way to the top. This leaves no room for ice and would likely cause spillage. If you intend to serve 12-oz. beverages in plastic cups, we recommend using 16-oz. cups or larger.
