Paper Hand Towel Options

Paper Hand Towel Options

There are many options in the UK for Paper Hand Towels, making the right choice will be based on your business type and your budget. If your budget is low and your footfall is high then you would imagine the cheapest case price would be your best choice. However, you should really be thinking about the waste involved and the cost per use per towel.

Things to look out for when costing Paper Hand Towels

I’ll use an example from The current (27th Sept 2018) pricing on 2 towels, C Fold 1ply Green and V Fold 1ply Green. You will see the current case price on both. The C fold is cheaper per case price but if you look into the specification you will see that you get 2080 more towels per case with the V Fold. The costing below shows a price per 100 towels. The saving is based on the amount of towels per case and doesn’t take into account the extra towels used when you have C Fold. To conclude, for us it’s a no brainer! V Fold Hand Towels works out so much better value for money and less waste. The gsm on both towels are the same. There is a difference with the towel size but saying that, C fold hand towels are not very often opened out to a full size towel.

  Pack Size CASE PRICE PRICE per 100
C Fold Green 2520 £11.50 £0.46
V Fold Green 4600 £15.50 £0.34

The first question i need to answer is why these towels are called C Fold? When folded as the image above is you will see 2 flaps, once these are lifted the shape resembles a letter C, there you go, it’s not rocket science! Wait until you see why Z Fold are called by their name! 🙂

C Fold paper hand towels are still our most asked for hand towel and for some reason our best seller. I suppose some people just don’t like change.

3 reasons why we don’t recommend C Fold hand Towels

  1. These towels are folded in on themselves and most users will not open up the towel causing waste.
  2. C Fold tend to be a lower gsm meaning that you need more to dry your hands.
  3. If they are put into a dispenser the wrong way you will struggle to take only one towel causing waste.

20 years ago when we didnt have interleaved towels a standard size would be 230mm x 330mm. A great size towel that would also be 40gsm. As the cost of raw material grew, manufacturers had to make the decision to reduce grammage and towels sizes. Today you can get a C fold towel that is 36gsm and a size of 230mm x 250mm which is 80mm shorter than they used to be. With the towel being folded its not a big issue as we discussed earlier, most people don’t open the towel anyway! Pack sizes have also been reduced to allow more cases per pallet. This of course helps distribution and keeps costs down when transporting goods across then world. You can find C Fold Hand Towels Pallet Deals at of this exact product.

Why are there 3 C Fold colours?

Green, Blue or White are the 3 colour options with our C Fold Hand Towels. Beige or Natural has tried to make it’s mark in the UK hand towel market but has failed to make an impact. Blue is a colour used in the Catering Industry. Schools are also a big user of Blue Hand Towels. Green towels always seem to be the economy, cheap choice but in reality green and blue cost the same. White tissue is available in 1, 2 or 3ply options and mostly associated with being the posh towels. A Pure tissue hand towel in 2 ply or more is usually soft and classed as a luxury product. Of course you recycled is also availble in white towels and often just as soft as pure tissue.
