About your Round Metal Tins
Made from strong silver metal, these food storage tins are built to last. We print your designs onto matt, sticker paper using dye sublimation, which is then applied to the lid and wrapped around the body. Highly adhesive and easy to wipe clean, the printed paper is a durable component and displays your designs wonderfully. It has an almost fabric texture to it, similar to quality wallpaper.
Perfect for carrying large cakes and keeping baked treats fresh. The lid is removable and has a tight, secure close.

How we Print & Make Round Tins with Lids
We print your bespoke designs onto our special lightly textured matte paper using dye sublimation. This impregnates the ink deep into the paper fibres creating a long-lasting print. It's then cut to size and applied to the tin and lid using a strong adhesive. The paper is only applied to the completely flat area of the lid, leaving the sides plain metal. We overlap the paper slightly where the two ends meet, to guarantee there's no gap.
The printed paper applied to your round metal tins can be wipe cleaned. Do not put your storage tins in the dishwasher as this could damage the paper and print.
Only 1cm or so is used to create the overlap, but to be on the safe side, we advise to not put any important details, text or information at the edges as they may be hidden due to the overlap. Landscape designs work best for the body of your round metal tins, as it needs to cover the width. If you use a portrait orientated image, this will automatically be sized to fill the area.
Vintage country inspired designs look fabulous, especially on the textured paper that has a rustic quality. If you own a bakery or boutique cake shop, print your logo on the lid and match the body with complementary branding colours. Another idea is to use these as premium presentation round metal tins for your home baking or community events.

Frequently asked questions:
What is fabric textured paper?
The super thick, durable, adhesive paper we use is reminiscent of wallpaper, with a distinct textured surface.
How much can it hold?
Your food-safe round tin has a 5 litre capacity, making it ideal for storing your homemade cakes, biscuits and other sweet treats.
Are they easy to clean?
Whilst they are not dishwasher safe as this could ruin the print and paper, the textured paper can easily be wiped clean with a cloth.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
