The Benefits of Tin Packaging

Here are some of the top advantages you’ll benefit from tin packaging;

At Can It, we understand the importance of packaging and the value it brings to your brand.

Since 1994, we have been a leading tin manufacturer and supplier of custom tin packaging and collection tins in South Africa. Our vast range of tin packaging, custom tins and tin cans, ointment tins, collection tins and paint cans are available worldwide.

Now that we’ve made our first impression, let’s get to why you actually came here.


1. Custom Branded Tins properly describe the product packaged inside

A perfectly branded tin box or tin can, printed 360° with your custom artwork carries across your desired message and significantly increases the perceived value of your product. Furthermore, it is worth noting that this form of packaging allows for the maximum surface area to be entirely covered with your unique design.

With various options and ways of branding, printing and assembly – tins offer stunning visual appeal and your image will never fade on Can It’s custom tin boxes.

2. It’s a method of Protective Packaging

Lightweight and adaptable, the premium tinplate we use to manufacture bespoke tin cans is easily moulded to best suit the contents, yet robust enough to provide protection.

Looking to elegantly package a fragile product? Tin Packaging is your friend.

Tins provide more strength and protection than most other traditional packaging options. On some tin cans, ribbing is added for strength purposes. Other tins are seamless. Most tin boxes are made using 0.27mm thickness tinplate, ensuring the product packaged inside will be protected – from the moment it is made, to the point of delivery to the customer.

3. Tin Boxes are Kept and Reused.

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.

Even the most ornate cardboard package will be discarded once the product inside is used. But your custom tin packaging, with your company logo and unique design, will be kept around for years and your custom tin boxes will look brand new without any loss in colour years from now. Can It tin boxes are not only very attractive at first sight, but are also likely to become a keepsake or collectible item – or at the very least a storage compartment for what have you!

Whether they keep it in their offices as a stationery holder on their desks, or at home to re-use in the kitchen or bathroom, no other packaging offers better retention value and brand recognition than a branded can that is also useful once opened and constantly driving your message and branding through, subliminally displaying your brand wherever found.

5. Tin Packaging preserves and keeps your product fresh

No other packaging method allows longer shelf life than tin packaging. Preparing for apocalypse or doomsday? Tin Can foods will most likely be on your immediate list. That’s because no other packaging option can store food longer than tin cans. This is due to the technically advanced industry, which has experienced significant advances since its inception. Consumable foods need to undergo preservation processes, which depending on the product, could include adding citric acid, boiling the tins at extreme heat or gas flushing for products such as peanuts.
