What is a Tin Box?

A tin box is a tinplate container.

Tinplate metal is primarily steel with a very thin tin coating. Tin-free steel is also used. In some cultures, these boxes or cans are referred to as “tin boxes” or sometimes even “tins”. Many “tin boxes” have hinged or removable lids or covers. Some people collect tin boxes as a hobby.

Speciality packaging impacts on the fundamental interaction between your customer and your brand – on the store shelf, where the shape, colour and design of your custom packaging may determine whether or not the consumer puts your product in their shopping cart. Also, consider that custom tin boxes from Can It last for years and neither the gift-giving moment nor your brand will be forgotten any time soon.

This ‘keep-ability’ and reuse factor follows on from the initial appeal of a good looking tin that helps to give brands the wow factor they need to get noticed, extending the visibility of a product long after it has been bought

What is a Metal Hinged Lid?

Hinged Lid Metal Tins

Some types of metal tins or cans have hinged covers; Others cans have removable interference fit covers or lids. These are often known as “flip top cans”. These tinplate cans are often used to package breath mints, throat lozenges, instant coffee, biscuits and holiday treats.

Highly decorated “holiday tins” are sold during the holiday season and are popular gifts, and often contain cookies, candy, or popcorn.

Similar festive containers are used in Europe for sweets, biscuits, cakes and chocolates, mainly during Christmas, rather than in the summer holidays and in countries with British associations, they are usually called “biscuit tins”. In Denmark, butter cookies in tins are produced and sold there and are also exported to other countries.

These types of smaller tin boxes are sometimes reused to store items, or to create kits, such as a survival kit. A hobby involves modifying tin boxes with decorations and embellishments.

What is Embossing and Debossing?2019-01-28T12:41:59+02:00

Sheet Metal Embossing (EMB) and Debossing (DBM) are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials. An embossed pattern is raised against the background, while a debossed pattern is sunken into the surface of the material (but might protrude somewhat on the reverse, back side).

Common Properties

  • Metal embossing is easy, fun, and a great technique for mixed and creative media art; embossed pieces can be used on tin boxes, handmade books, a collage and more.
  • The ability to form ductile metals.
  • Use in medium to high production runs
  • The ability to maintain the same metal thickness before and after embossing.
  • The ability to produce unlimited patterns, depending on the roll dies.
  • The ability to reproduce the product with no variation.
What is BiaxOP branding?2019-01-28T12:43:51+02:00

When glossy film is extruded and stretched in both the machine direction and across machine direction it is called biaxially oriented polypropylene (gloss). Biaxial orientation increases strength and clarity. BiaxOP branding is primarily found in the gifting, resale and retail industries – with the branding process found throughout popular products such biscuit tins, gift tins, mint tins, wine tin boxes and more

Common Properties

  • BiaxOP is resistant to moisture and humidity and is water-resistant
  • It is a very strong and durable plastic material.
  • BiaxOP can be manufactured in a variety of colors, both transparent and solid.
  • Because of the durability of vinyl, products made from this material have a long-life span and is widely used in the packaging industry across the globe.
  • Glossy finish paper has a high gloss coating applied to the paper surface that yields a smooth, shiny finish, vivid colors, vibrant images and excellent reproduction.
  • BiaxOP finished film is typically chosen for its polished texture, flashy appearance and superb color-contrast qualities.
  • BiaxOP is best used on full color designs that have bright solid colors, photographs or bold patterns. Designs that contain prominent headlines, rich colors and tones, lots of imagery and minimal text are well-suited for a glossy finish.
  • Text heavy designs tend to be difficult to read on a glossy finish — we recommend a matte finish for them.

Our Material & Quality

Why choose our tins over others?

Tinplate, thin steel sheet with a coating of tin applied either by dipping in molten metal or by electrolytic deposition; almost all tinplate is now produced by the latter process. Tinplate made by this process is essentially a sandwich in which the central core is strip steel. This core is cleaned in a pickling solution and then fed through tanks containing electrolyte, where tin is deposited on both sides.

There’s More than a few Reasons…

  • Beautiful Appearance

  • Excellent Paint-ability & Print-ability

  • Excellent Form-ability & Strength

  • Excellent Corrosion Resistance

  • Excellent Solder-ability & Weld-ability

What is your design process for creating custom tins?2019-01-28T13:01:00+02:00

1. Conceptualize

The definition of conceptualization is the critical and creative thinking process of envisioning an idea or concept. When you brainstorm about a new product and you come up with the brand guidelines to bring the product to market, this is an example of conceptualization.

Our product designers will assist and guide you every step of the way, in a systematic approach, conceptualizing, evaluating and collaborating new ideas with you, turning them into tangible inventions and successful products for your launch or promotion.

2. Evaluate & Rethink

Evaluate, address and clarify your project’s needs. With the creative process underway, now is the time to clarify the other important factors such as the tin size, order quantity and distribution needs for your project. Engage Can It as the custom tin manufacturer for your tin packaging requirements and we manage everything for you – tin proof samples, mass-manufacturing, packing in export cartons, freight, insurance, customs, duty, logistics and delivery to your doorstep.

Whether in the USA, Britain, South Africa or elsewhere – request and you will receive an ‘all for one’ all-inclusive price per finished item. We do all the work so you can focus on your core business.

3. Talk it and Chalk it

Now that you’ve conceptualized the finished product and clarified the other aspects to your order, it’s time to design your custom tin package from Can It. If you are using your own graphic illustrator or team of designers, please simply request the artwork size from us. In the event that you are using our creative team, please provide a comprehensive artwork brief to us.

Things to consider: colours, logo, brand guidelines, engaging text, legal terms, best before, contact details. The more descriptive brief you provide, the more we will be able to design something which presents your brand and conveys your message. Contact our team to discuss today.

4. Improve & Conclude

Discuss branding methods and the choice of branding material with your Can It expert. Finalize the changes and improvements regarding the design of your tins and conclude your order by providing artwork approval to us. Once we receive your approval, the manufacturing process is underway and there will be no further way to make changes. Ensure you are 100% happy by only providing approval once you are completely satisfied with the design.

Matte – Contrast Film Branding

Unlike BiaxOP film, matte paper produces nice quality prints but does not have that vibrant color finish. Matte paper is not vulnerable to being marred by fingerprints and it produces a non-glare photo.

Common Properties

  • Matte film is not glossy and therefore finger marks or glare from the sun are not a problem.
  • When printing macro shots, portraits or other images that rely in small details, you may be better off using BiaxOp film.
  • Matte finished film is typically chosen for its unique combination of smooth texture, easy readability, and bold contrast qualities. Matte is well known for its versatility and can be used with designs that contain white space, solid colors, photographs or a combination of these elements.
  • Matte finish paper has a dull coating applied to the paper surface that yields a non-shiny, smooth finish that is superior for color contrast and text clarity.
  • The matte finish enhances soft and simple designs such as those with a focus on text, lines or borders while complementing colorful designs like landscapes and illustrations.

BiaxOP – Glossy Film Branding

When glossy film is extruded and stretched in both the machine direction and across machine direction it is called biaxially oriented polypropylene (gloss). Biaxial orientation increases strength and clarity. BiaxOP branding is primarily found in the gifting, resale and retail industries – with the branding process found throughout popular products such biscuit tins, gift tins, mint tins, wine tin boxes and more

GSMP – Gloss Paper Film

The term GSM is far from explanatory, but you can guarantee that it will come up when talking to any printer worth his or her salt. What does GSM mean and what does it mean for your printing? It’s worth noting that the experts here at Can It, SA’s leading tin supplying company, will gladly guide you to the correct decisions.

With BRANDEDTINS.COM, you will notice that branding matters and will keep on popping up ever-increasingly in the business, promotional and gifting sectors. This trend holds true across printed tin boxes, small round tins, branded packaging, company booklets, company gift hampers, mint tins, lip balm tins, company chocolates and pretty much any printed gift product you can think of.

 Common Properties

  • Laser Gloss is a glossy paper that is an ideal choice for flyers, two-sided brochures and similar applications. It is an improved soft gloss with a glossier appearance. The product exists because of customer demand for a glossier brochure paper and was made possible by a more advanced paper manufacturing technique. It most closely resembles high quality magazine paper.
  • Glossy Paper refers to any coated papers designed to present an ultra-smooth to shiny appearance. Applications include brochures, advertising, flyers, one sheets, photographic printing and other presentation documents.

UVV – Ultra Varnish

UV coating, often called liquid lamination, is a highly protective, ultra-shiny gloss coating that we apply over aqueous coating and then cure on a special machine using ultraviolet light.

Common Properties

  • The solvent-free UV coating provides an extremely hard finish that’s chemical and abrasion resistant.
  • It makes details really pop! On deep colors, it results in a stunning, almost wet appearance.
  • Perfect when you want a durable, environmentally-friendly piece with a richer, high-end look and feel.

EMB or DBM – Embossing

Sheet Metal Embossing (EMB) and Debossing (DBM) are the processes of creating either raised or recessed relief images and designs in paper and other materials.
