Want to know more about Paper Plates

Paper plates in bulk supplies for all occasions

Most workplaces need disposable paper plates along with bulk plastic cups and disposable utensils to host a variety of events for employees, including in-house luncheons, seasonal or holiday gatherings, and birthday and retirement celebrations. These bulk supplies minimize pre-event prep time and cleaning up afterward, also lessening employee downtime. Companies can also use the plates to go green since most of them come from plant-based, renewable materials or 100 percent pre- or post-consumer content. They are either biodegradable or compostable. Many bulk paper plates are available in convenient self-dispensing containers.

Bulk paper plates aren’t just for the office. Many events, like wedding showers, baby showers, birthday parties, weddings, and holiday gatherings take place away from the workplace. There is a great deal of preparation for these events, so no one wants to spend hours on clean up. This is when paper plates come in handy. When planning such events, don’t forget about the disposable serving dishes, bowls, cups and lids, and cutlery.

The versatility of disposable paper plates

Companies should keep a variety of bulk paper plates on hand. Meals and snacks may include dry foods and dishes with sauces or cold and hot entrees. Paper plates in bulk quantities are available in sizes and weights for all food types. Use 9- and 10-inch heavyweight plates for serving hearty, hot entrees that require food service supplies like disposable knives and forks.

Give employees 8.5-inch medium-weight disposable paper plates for lunchtime sandwiches or salads. Use smaller, 5- to 6-inch medium-weight products for birthday cake or snacks. Many disposable varieties also come with compartmentalized sections to separate saucy foods from dry, and most have clay or polymer coating to resist bleed-through of sauces, creams, or gravies.

Designs, colors, and patterns of paper plates in bulk

Many all-white options are available for everyday meals. Some have decorative floral or vine patterns on the rims and platters to add a touch of style to the break room. Many disposable paper plates have festive designs to coordinate them with birthday and holiday parties. Others have sports-themed designs or come in plaid, gingham, or zebra designs. You can also get products in just about any color, from green, yellow, and red to black, pink, and purple. You can find round, square, or oval selections, or special areca leaf paper plates you heat-press into any shape.

Some matching cups are available to go with colored or special-design plates. Whether you incorporate them with the rest of the tableware or position them near the food and drinks, matching cups and plates look attractive at events. With a wedding or bridal shower, using paper plates and paper cups that match the wedding colors is an idea. The cups could be one color and the plates could reflect the other color of the event decor scheme. There are so many designs in paper plates you are almost sure to find just what you’re looking for.

Cutlery to complement paper plates

Single-use or rewashable serving utensils and cutlery are also helpful when hosting formal or casual events. In most cases, disposable cutlery should match the paper plates. For wedding banquets or executive dinner parties, utensils in gold and silver options go with embellished paper plates for a sophisticated look. Bright-colored cutlery paired with paper plates in bold and charming designs bring fun and enjoyment to kid's birthday parties, potlucks, and backyard barbecues. If no matching cutlery is available, complement the plates with a clear, white, or black set. 

Leading disposable plate manufacturers

Plates come from the leading manufacturers of disposable paper products and cutlery that accompany other office break room supplies:

  • Dixie®
  • Chinet®
  • Solo®
  • Creative Converting™
  • Amscan®

Paper plates available in bulk

Whether catering to a large or small crowd, it's best to plan ahead for stress-free entertaining. Quill carries a broad selection of disposable plates, cups, and cutlery to accommodate extravagant wedding receptions, as well as intimate celebrations with only a few family members around. Keep extra paper plates and other supplies on hand in case of a bigger turnout. This means there's plenty to spare for unexpected guests and visitors. 

For flexibility, options range from 10 to 1,000 pieces of paper plates per pack. This makes it easy to keep kitchen cupboards and supply cabinets fully stocked for daily use or special occasions. The plates stack in compact batches to maximize tight storage spaces at home. For the office, make the smart choice of stocking multipackage cartons of different weights and sizes to prepare for any event. Disposable plates in sealed plastic containers and secure boxes also prevent dust buildup to maintain their sanitary condition prior to use.
