Metal Tins & Cans
Looking for an alternative to plastic or glass packaging? Consider using metal containers and closures for a unique look! Our new metal tins and cans may enhance and innovate your products in a matter of seconds. When you select a tin container to package your product, not only are you selecting one of the most recycled and environmentally friendly packaging options available, but also its unique look will differentiate you from the rest of your competitors. Tin containers have become a popular way to package a variety of products from food and cosmetics to paints and solvents.
At SKS we offer a variety of metal tins and cans such as flat metal tins, deep dish metal tins, clear top tins, hinge top tins, F style cans, and round paint style cans. Tins are available with slipcover tops, lids with see-through windows, hinged tops, and twist tops. Choose the most appropriate metal tin can and cover that will best suit your product.
Our metal tins with clear view top slipcover lids allow for a closed container with a clear view enabling the contents of the package to be seen. If your product is colorful, has an interesting texture or looks delicious, a clear view top container is a great way to show these items off. Try filling these containers with specialty candies or assorted nuts, candles, bath salts or potpourris. Enhance your clever package with a fancy ribbon or bow and you have an elegantly packaged gift!
Your product is sure to stand out when you use our gold metal tins! Available in three sizes, these deep gold metal tins could be a great choice for packaging bath salts, candles, food items, wedding favors and more.
