About Your Silver Tin

    Your silver tin box is perfectly sized for keeping in your pocket, bag or desk drawer. Printing directly onto the metal surface of the lid creates an authentic effect where your design looks etched or engraved. No white ink is printed, resulting in a silver, metallic finish. You could use your silver tin as a sleek way to present business cards to clients, or decorate with a vintage pattern for quirky wedding favours.

How your Silver Tin is Printed & Made

Your silver tin box is made from silver metal featuring a tightly secured lift off lid. We use a dye sublimation process so the ink fuses to the surface, creating a long lasting print. Please be aware that your design is printed directly onto the metal without a white ink base coat, so images will naturally have silvery undertones with a metallic finish. This adds authenticity to your bespoke tin, as designs look 'etched' or engraved.



Care Instructions

The silver tin is easily wiped clean, as the specialist printing process impregnates the ink to the metal so your design won't peel away. 

  • Hand Wash

Design Tips

Vibrant designs really pop against the silver base tone, so choose patterns and pictures that are full of colour. We only print on the flat area of the lid, so please note that your design isn't wrapped around the sides. Customise your silver tin box with your company credentials and logo for a smart and stylish way to present business cards. Print an abstract pattern or a piece of your own original artwork and showcase your creative talents.

Frequently asked questions:

Are these food safe?

Your metal tins are food safe, but the compact pocket size makes them more suitable for mints, very small sweets, chewing gums or even sugar cubes for your afternoon tea.

Can I use a design with white in it?

We print directly onto the silver tins, creating a more 'etched' or 'engraved' look, you can use white in your design but it will be unprinted, and appear silver.

Where is my design printed?

We print your designs onto the flat area of the lid only, leaving the rest of the body either classic silver or the contemporary white base. The print is long-lasting and won't crack or peel.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)

  • GSM ICON

    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).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    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.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    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.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    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.

  • print label option icon

    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.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    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.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
