Some women find markings make cleaning harder as blood can collect in the writing and is hard to clean out. Some of the markings on a cup give measuring details so that you can calculate the amount of your flow.
Diva – Brand name and “made in Canada” printed in raised letters inside the cup, also raised measuring lines in both mls and oz inside. Outside is smooth except for lines for gripping the bottom of the cup.
Femmecup – “www.femmecup.com” on inside of rim in raised letters. 2 measuring lines inside marking 15mls and 7.5mls. Flat bottom inside with no size marking. Outside the cup has a spiral starting at the base (forming ridges for gripping), that continue down the stem.
Keeper - Brand name and “made in USA” printed in raised letters inside the cup, also raised (measuring ?) lines around the inside of the cup. No markings outside the cup. No ridges for gripping on base of the cup.
Lady Cup – No writing or measuring lines at all, completely smooth inside and out, except small slightly raised bumps around the base of the cup on the outside for gripping the bottom of the cup.

Measuring your flow
Some of the cups have measuring lines on the cup to help you measure your flow.
Diva – 2 lines with markings in mls on one side of the cup and 2 lines with markings in Oz on the other side. Both inside the cup.
Femmecup – 2 lines on one side of the cup, marked 7.5mls and 15mls
Keeper – Has 2 lines running around the entire inside of the cup which could be measuring lines.
Lady Cup – No measuring lines
Lunette – 2 very slightly raised lines on the outside of the cup. No marking
Mooncup (UK) – 2 lines with no markings on one side of the cup and 2 lines with markings in mls on the other. Both inside the cup. When I measured this, the markings were not the same as the amount of water I’d tested it with. Not sure why.
Mooncup (USA) – Unknown, suspect the same as Keeper.
