What type of metals does World Tin use?
Decorated tins are made with electrolytic tinplate and tin-free steel, which are the same materials used in many canned foods.
What is metal lithography?
Metal is decorated via an offset printing process utilizing CMYK colors (4-Color Process). The process of printing is done on large, flat metal sheets on which the image to be printed is ink-receptive and the blank areas ink-repellent. Once printed, the sheets are “punched” and “bent” into “can” form.
Are decorated tins suitable for food storage?
Yes. We use all lead-free inks and food grade lacquers and varnishes are used in the lithographic process to ensure the tins are non-toxic and suitable for food storage. In addition, our tins are environmental friendly and 100% recyclable.
What is the estimated lead-time for production?
Lead-time is approximately 30- 45 days from approval of pre-production sample.
What is the MOQ (Minimum order quantity) for a tin order?
Minimum order quantity is approximately 3,000pcs – 5,000pcs per order depending on tin size.
Do you have a standard price list?
Due to the custom nature of each project, we do not have a standard price list. Projects are quoted based on size, shape, material, quantity and printing specifications.
