Upscale Disposable Tableware, A Blog

    Catersource 2019, here we come!

    Catering to Catersource New Orleans 2019








    Certain times of the year Fineline Settings supports different industry venues to showcase packaging products and disposable table settings. As a manufacturer of all things catering, packaging, tableware, and cutlery, we work to highlight and celebrate YOUR style.

    February 24-27, Fineline Settings will be at Catersource New Orleans 2019 kicking off Mardi Gras in style with a look at how we can help bring a little extra energy to your sales. Come to our booth and look for the colorful Quenchers line of products to fit your Mardi Gras themed event. In fact, we have cater trays for those King Cakes and lids to accommodate the baby and beads for easy transportation. OR get really fancy and make “Personal” King Cakes and package in our tiny domes or tiny trays & lids (you know for the teeny tiny baby and the itty bitty beads 😊).

    Be on the LOOKOUT – We will be displaying our new sturdy paper straws for any beverage and compostable cutlery in bone, white, and black. ALSO we have new PETE lids for the bagasse products in the Conserveware category of packaging. In true Fineline approach, the straws and cutlery come individually uncovered for container handling or wrapped for sanitation and public access. (BTW the cutlery has a compostable stamp on the product for authenticity.) The lids for the bagasse products come dome or flat. If artistic flare is what you are looking for some lids have a scalloped edges helping set the tone for your creations. Those are just some of the new products we are launching for 2019.

    At Fineline we believe our greatest asset is our workforce – so come meet us! We send our national sales team to facilitate, inform, & demo our products while learning and collaborating with chefs from around the world to keep up-to-date on new food trends and styles. We feel this united approach of learning and supplying is the one-stop-shop variety that helps fulfill your packaging vision for today and anticipate your packaging desires for tomorrow. Shows like Catersource New Orleans 2019 give you every opportunity to touch and see first-hand all the great new products available and reacquaint yourself with our most popular products.

    Coming soon - Fineline Settings will be helping National Restaurant Association (NRA) Chicago 2019 celebrate 100 years May 18-21, 2019 at McCormick Place downtown Chicago, Il. Come over and network with Fineline Settings national sales team and celebrate in style at our booth.

    We would love to see how YOU use Fineline Settings to CELEBRATE with STYLE. Always remember to tag us @finelinesettings

    Resolution reboot



    2019 New Year resolutions are opportunities of change and times of thanksgiving. But a few weeks into the 2019 do you find yourself sluggish, discouraged, or maybe even baffled about your transformation or the lack of transformation. Sometimes after a couple of weeks trying to incorporate my New Year’s resolution I get confused why I am not as successful as I had anticipated.

    Typical resolutions involve changing a habit, refreshing an appearance, or reviving concept. Have you ever heard the saying “old habits die hard”. Well it doesn’t have to ring true for you. Sometimes motivation and incentive to keep a resolution is as simple as a change in appearance or improved packaging of product. Old habits may die hard but I am finding when I ask for help with my resolution – I am much more successful.

    Don’t let your fresh appearance or new product/habit fail or limp along: let Fineline help you continue 2019 with a successful resolution. Fineline product line is the kind of help that keeps inspiration and transformation fresh. 

    In fact, Fineline Settings has been busy working to help you reboot your resolution by launching a new improved website. We listened to our customers and have changed our website to better align with your needs.

    We are making new items easier to find by showcasing them on the landing page. The items are categorized by product AND for those purists who are looking for continuity of appearance we kept the ability to search by collection. More pictures, detailed descriptions and straightforward ordering were some of the principal changes considered for the new website.

    Fineline Settings is dedicated to help you be more efficient and effective by streamlining our processes to match the accuracy and urgency you need. As in typical Fineline fashion, we strive to help you celebrate in style.

    A NEW Eco-Friendly Product Line - Introducing... CONSERVEWARE!

    As a response to the food service industry’s ever growing demand for compostable products, Fineline Settings introduces the Conserveware collection! Conserveware is a natural molded fiber material made from sugarcane pulp called bagasse. Operators who have built their brand on appealing to Earth conscious consumers will find the Conserveware product line to be the perfect solution for all of their packaging needs. The molded fiber material can handle the heat of hot foods, is microwavable, freezable and will compost within BPI standards.


    What makes our introduction truly unique is the innovation we are adding to the Conserveware line. Fineline has introduced square, oval and rectangle bowls, as well as the traditional round plates and hinge containers that are most commonly used. Not only have we created new shapes and sizes, but most products can be equipped with clear recyclable PETE lids. The ability for Fineline to add innovation to this material is what separates us from the crowd. Fineline will continue to create new designs and shapes in the bagasse material that will help any operator create the perfect take-out vehicle for their business.

    The Conserveware line if the perfect compliment to Fineline’s product offering. With the addition of bagasse products, Fineline has created a full comprehensive catering product selection in the industry. Fineline now produces products in every available food service material to allow you to create the perfect packaging solution. We hope you will allow Fineline Settings to be your one stop packaging solution provider from your initial champagne toast to your take home family meal.
