Differences Between 1 and 2-ply Napkins

When selecting napkins, be sure to consider the product’s ply, or thickness. Cibowares offers a wide variety of disposable napkins available in both 1-ply and 2-ply options. With this simple guide, you can be sure to buy the perfect product to suit your establishment’s needs.

Both dinner napkins and beverage napkins are available in 1 or 2-ply styles. We also offer the even more absorbent Airlaid Napkins and Airlaid Guest Towels. It is important to remember how the ply of a napkin affects the product’s absorbency, durability, and cost, and to consider the differences between the two options.

1-Ply Napkins
A cost-effective choice, these lightweight napkins are ideal for sanitation or grab-and-go applications. We recommend using them with light finger foods or as beverage napkins.

2-Ply Napkins
Thicker and more durable than 1-ply napkins, these products are ideal for use as dinner napkins and are absorbent enough to clean up even the toughest messes and spills. Airlaid Guest Towels & Napkins
These products are even more absorbent and durable than standard 2-ply napkins. With the stylish appearance and soft linen-like texture, they are an elegant and functional option for a wide variety of events.

Whether your business requires napkins, plates, or other high-quality disposables, finding the ideal product is easy with Cibowares’ wide selection of restaurant supplies.
