Custom Guidelines

For over 200 years tin packaging has added value to products!

Give your product the distinctive look it deserves with a custom designed package. You can attract new customers or generate repeat business with a permanent reminder of your product and your company.

Our professional staff will work closely with you to provide an exclusively designed metal container for your every packaging need. No matter what you are packaging- stationery items, candy, cosmetics, puzzles, or trading cards -- we have something for everyone.

Many new fancy shapes and deep embossing have been developed to make your package unique. In addition to everyday packaging, custom tins can also be a great idea for:

  • Special Anniversaries
  • Promotions
  • Gifts with Purchase
  • Marketing New Products

Contact us for pricing on a NEW shape/design or request one of our many stock designs and shapes.

Custom Guidelines

Tin Measurements: We measure all of our cans by the outside dimension with the lid off. Our base dimensions are set unless new tooling is produced. The height of the tins is adjustable from 7/8" to 12" high. Tins lower than 7/8" require a drawn (no seam) base and special tooling.

Production Quantities: The average minimum run is 12,000 pieces per shape. For smaller size tins the minimums increase to 24,000 pieces. Small pill type boxes might have higher production run.

Combination Litho Runs: We can do combination litho runs enabling the small customer to maximize their custom order. We can run up to 3 designs for the same shaped can order. Note the order must be run in 4-color process without any additional special colors.

Proofing: Our standard procedure is to provide a paper proof approximately 2-3 weeks after we receive artwork from the customer. Once the paper proof is approved, we can set an accurate production schedule. We can also run metal proofs for orders over 100,000 pieces. Please note this adds 2-4 weeks time to project.

Production Lead Time: Our standard lead time is 120 days (4 months) once the paper proof is approved by the customer. In this schedule, we have added 30 days for shipping from the factory to our warehouse in New York. For orders shipped from Hong Kong direct to the customer, order would be 90 days (3 months). Please note that during off peak production the lead time can be reduced to 60 days.
