Custom Tin Packaging

Make your product stand out on the shelf with custom tin designs. Minimum order quantities for custom tins begins at 5,000 cans.

Custom Tins for Promotions and Overall Shelf Appeal

Major brands choose specialty tin packaging to draw attention to their brand's milestones and new product launches with limited edition, collectible tins. You too can buy custom metal packaging from a US manufacturer that ensures timely delivery, high quality and safety.

Seconds count when it comes to catching the eye of the consumer. Tin packaging with vibrant graphics, reflectivity or embossing is hard to pass by. The superior look and feel of custom cookie and popcorn tins give the impression of quality. The collectability helps to sell the product inside and brings customer delight to a brand's loyal customers.

Custom decorative tins are a great way to stand out in the marketplace. Custom specialty metal packaging has a look and feel that is not only pleasing but adds perceived value. Collectible anniversary tins promote your brand long after the original purchase and commemorative tins are often displayed in homes and businesses.

Specialty Finishes

In addition to custom graphics, embossment and even perforation, we offer specialty finishes. Embossed Tins get attention. Gloss, matte, textured and satin varnishes top off high definition graphics with added flair. Spot varnish can draw attention to selected areas of a logo or design, giving it an up-scale look. Custom graphics can be used to accent single or multi-level embossing.

Unique custom closures can cap a tin container with a decorative touch that adds to the collectability of the package. Decorative metal snap lids can be used as closures for hermetically sealed coffee and peanut cans after the container is opened.

Custom Printing Capabilities

Our custom printing capabilities produce eye appealing images and graphics that may also be enhanced. Specialty varnishes including textured, gloss, matte and crystalline can be added, either as a spot or overall finish, to achieve even more impact and interest.

The reflective beauty of custom tin packaging can be made to show through transparent inks and coatings. Since foils and laminates are not needed, tins are superior sustainable packages. Embossing a logo or design can produce a distinctive high-end look with or without printed graphics for more appeal.
