Major Brands Make Their Statement With Steel

Celebrating more than 90 years as a domestic manufacturer of distinctive, decorative tin packaging, our broad range of market-tested shapes, sizes provide packaging solutions for products and promotions. Corporate initiatives throughout the world involve the pursuit of packaging that doesn’t just have an extended life cycle on the way to the landfill.  Tin-plated steel packaging projects quality, stability and corporate responsibility. 

Packaging is the face of your company and product in the marketplace.  Consumer engagement with an eye-catching package is enhance by its compatibility with the company’s commitment to the environment.

Most packaging is temporary. It is part of the disposable economy. The process of recycling some of the newer packaging innovations takes the convenience out of the process and requires more consumer education. Tin-plated steel is curb-side recyclable and always has been.  It is the only material that can be separated from other items in the waste stream by magnet.  Impurities are burned off in the recycling process, including the inks and coatings.  


Steel Packaging is the Most Sustainable Choice

Tins add value and shelf appeal. You can rely on our top quality custom printing and standout service. Because tins are collectable and part of the gift, they are rarely thrown away. The beauty and durability of the tin eliminates the need for secondary packaging, which is easier on the environment and your budget.  A tin container is 100% infinitely recyclable without loss of quality. Steel is recycled more than paper, plastic, glass and aluminum combined! We make the case in our video >>>
