With the new 12mm extra-wide straw being popular to our already huge variety of straw sizes and widths, we would take this opportunity to explain how to ensure you end up with the perfect paper straw for your requirements.

How wide should your paper straw be?

4.5mm or 5mm are the smallest straws we produce. They are usually used for smaller cocktails.

6mm are widely used and referred to as Classic straws,

8mm are used to receiving with our soft drinks in bars and restaurants.

10mm or the smoothie straw as they are sometimes called, are obviously more suitable for the thicker drinks such as smoothies, thick milkshakes, freshly squeezed juices and frappes.

12mm straws are the only ones wide enough for the tapioca boba for Bubble tea to pass through. Bubble tea is a delicious treat that is growing in popularity globally. The drinks are infused with sweet, thick tapioca pearls and are difficult to consume without an extra wide paper straw.

How long should your paper straw be?

Our paper straws length can be customized.

135mm or 140mm is the Sip straw. This length is available in the 4.5mm, 5mm and 6mm widths

200mm is the standard length and will work with most drinks. These are available in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm widths.

260mm is the longest length we produce, and these are great for the very tallest refreshments. These are available in 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm widths.
