CD Tins, as they are known, are manufactured from tinplate and are available for packaging CDs, DVDs and other media. They come in a number of basic designs which can be customised by printing and / or embossing. Styles A, B, C, D and DVD will all take CDs or DVDs; the DVD Tin is specifically designed to hold an Amaray case inside. They make a real impact if you are running a high profile publicity campaign or creating a collectable item.

In addition to the items shown below, it is also possible to supply a business card sized hinged lid tin and and a pastel tin for taking memory sticks.

Other tins not related to the disc packaging range are also available, including an over sized A4 document presentation case, pencil cases, and a variety of rectangular and cylindrical tins.

Embossing

Embossing is a two stage process. First the embossing tool is made which incurs a one off set-up cost (we normally supply sample tins at this stage for approval). Then either existing tins are embossed, or the embossing takes place as the tins are formed during the manufacturing process (normally for large runs with longer lead times, or where litho printing is required). Embossing can be combined with silk screen print or litho print.

'Film Can' Style Embossing. If you would like either Tin A or Tin C embossing in the style of a 'Film Can', as in the picture above, this can be arranged using existing tools, avoiding the cost of creating a new embossing tool (ie. you only pay the unit cost for embossing).

Tin Printing

Silk Screen Printing

Smaller quantities can be screen printed onto tins 'off the shelf', using 1 colour on round tins*, and up to 5 colours on other tins, with either inks or tinted varnish. Screen print can only be applied to flat areas of the tin (normally the lid), so when combining screen print with embossing, print must be kept clear of the embossed areas. 

Prices below are for printing the outside of either the lid or the base. If you require the outside of both the lid and base printing, please double the costs. It is not possible to print base of Tin D.

3000+ £0.59 £1.03 £1.49 £1.96

* We can now print 2 colours on round tins, but with an additional supplement of £0.12 to cover the extra time for correct registration.

Litho Printing

Full colour high resolution litho print can be used on larger runs. The metal is litho printed prior to formation of the tins (known as print through manufacture), which has the advantage that the tin can be printed on all surfaces, including embossed areas, and the sides. However, lead times are generally longer as we cannot litho print pre-formed tins 'off the shelf'. 

Prices and further information is available on request.

Alternative Finishes

Other finishes are available on larger runs, including gold coloured lacquer. Please contact us with your specific requirements.

Insert Printing

We can arrange the printing of inserts to go with the various styles of tins. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

CD & DVD Replication

We offer a full disc service for disc replication. Please refer to the main CD & DVD comparison page for further information on discs and prices.

Packing & Delivery

Packing and delivery costs are quoted on a by job basis, and will be affected by number of steps involved in packing and the weight and distance for deliveries.

Lead Times

Basic tins are normally available from stock for immediate despatch.
Screen printing and / or embossing normally require 1 to 4 weeks. 
Lead times for litho print and / or embossing through manufacture are quoted on a job by job basis.
