Tin can packaging can be printed perfectly. You can choose for digital printing (see: Hildering Colour Can) or for offset printing. With offset printing the minimal order has to be 500 sheets per decor. The number of cans that can be printed from one sheet, depends on the capacity of your can. For example: from a can of 1 litre, 18 cans can be printed out of one sheet. So 500 sheets means 9.000 tin can packaging. (see table). From the total order smaller quantities can be called. In consultation we can keep a part of the order in stock, and we guarantee a delivery within some days (from your advance order). The complete order has to be called down within 12 months.
