Aluminum Cup Price or Cost

When you want to create a custom design aluminum cup, you should know how much it costs to manufacture a cup and what can affect the cost?

The aluminum cups cost can be very different depending on your custom parts design and the order quantities.

1. Material cost: aluminum

For example, product design cost will begin when you set up the project even if it does not start production; your material cost is often given per g. It’s important to know there would be a material waste at the beginning of each production, which means your order quantities are bigger. The average waste of raw material for each product is less.

If you choose stainless steel material, the cost will be more expensive than aluminum. Because stainless steel is more expensive and heavy than aluminum.

2. Size or capacity

It is obvious that a small aluminum cup is much cheaper than a large aluminum cup. So when you choose the aluminum cups, you should choose the suitable capacity, the 10 oz to 20 oz aluminum cups are mostly used aluminum cups in the market.

3. The cost of different order quantities

The order quantities have a big impact on production manufacturing costs. The more quantities you order, the more price you can save.

The cost saving is mainly on the production process, the more quantity you order, the timing for adjusting the toolings/machines is saving, and also the work process will be highly effective.

Also, you can save shipment costs a lot by different quantities. For a standard size 16 or 17oz/500ml aluminum cup, you can choose shipment as follow:

  • less than 100pcs; Express or air shipment, fast but quite expensive
  • 100~3000 pcs; sea shipment slow and expensive
  • 20000 pcs; sea shipment FCL 20″ GP container, slow and cheap
  • 40000 pcs; sea shipment FCL 40″ GP container, slow and very cheap

4. The timing of your order

When your aluminum cup order quantities are small or only one-time orders, and the delivery time is urgent, the prices would be higher than usual.

5. cost of different surface finish

We can do different custom surface treatments for your aluminum cups depending on your design needs.

There’s no plate charge when you only want to apply different Pantone colors with painting or anodized. However anodized prices are always more expensive than spray painting.

It would have a plate fee cost when you want to have different graphic decorations for your custom design cup with different techniques, such as logo printing, logo embossing, heat transfer printing, silk printing, offset printing, pad printing, etc. Also like heat transfer printing, offset or pad printing costs are always more expensive than silk printing or logo embossing.

The plate charge cost will start from $30 to $600, sample lead time from 7 days to 15 days.

6. Labour cost

The labor cost does keep increasing year by year. We need to think of the labor cost from the cup design to reduce the product unit cost by the useless hand-made manufacturing process.

7. Additional cost

Packaging cost; with some unique products which need a custom design packaging will cause an additional cost. The more premium packaging it looks, the more expensive it costs.


After being used, an aluminum cup can be recycled and returned as a new cup or can in just 60 days after being used. It can also be recycled to take on a new life as a car, laptop, or bicycle.
