Decorative Tapered Pails for Popcorn and More

Custom tin packaging for popcorn, snack food and gift baskets.

Custom Design Tapered Pails for Popcorn Tins, Gift Baskets and More

For decades, popcorn tins have been a gift-giving favorite for the holidays. Tins add value and catch the eye of the consumer. They are part of the gift and a lasting advertisement in homes and businesses.

At Independent Can, we have stock availability in an array of beautiful designs - Christmas and all-occasion, as well as solid colored cans. Our larger tapered and straight sided Popcorn Tins are great for potato chips, pretzels, cheese curls and other favorites. Dividers are available for our popcorn tins to allow for two or three snacks in one pail.

Lifting handles for the larger containers are available on larger orders and we also feature smaller half-gallon and gallon snack pails with bail handles, perfect for bite sized snacks and gourmet mixes.

Popcorn Tin Pails - Options and Ordering Details

Given that we can control the manufacturing process of our snack tins from start to finish, we're able to pass this efficiency on to our customers. The lead-time necessary to produce your popcorn order is only 2-3 weeks from receipt of the order, year-round. The minimum order required for purchase is $1,000 and we manufacture in full-pallet quantities per SKU. We also stock all of the accessories that you will need including shrink bands, dividers and individual reship cartons!

Nationwide Distributor Network

For smaller orders and mixed pallets of designs, we partner with packaging experts that sell lower than our minimum quantities at competitive prices (Atlantic Can in New Jersey and Holiday Tins and Containers in Texas). They offer stock availability and superior service.
