  • Pressitin™

    Our innovative and patented concept: Pressitin™

    These silver tins are ideal for holding everything from gifts to nuts and pills to boxer shorts, but more commonly confectionery. This tin is sealed using bare hands and is then opened from the top using a ring pull mechanism, giving the product a unique novelty value. Other popular uses for the Pressitin™ include marketing campaigns and limited edition products.

    The Pressitin™ is coated in a food safe lacquer. Please note, it is not recommended for use with tobacco, pressurised or liquid fillings - we have other options available to accommodate these.

  • Packaging: The Visual Identity of the Brand

    Packaging is often thought of as the visual identity of the brand. It’s what differentiates one brand from another. It helps a brand and product stand out and projects not only the quality of the product but also the brand values of a company.

  • Are You Influencing Consumer Behaviour with the Colour of Your Packaging?

    Brands use colour associations to establish recognition among competitors in a sea of products.

    But psychologists and marketing professionals have also linked a strong connection between colour associations against consumer buying behaviour and the message they interpret from the brand. When using colour correctly, it could noticeably boost sales and maintain a consistent brand image. But when used incorrectly, you could hinder the product’s success.

    Have you ever wanted the ultimate tamper-evident solution for your product - that only a sealed tin can provide - but you don’t have the means to seal a tin? And you do not have access to the empty tin cans anyway?
    Well now you can can. Yes, you can buy open tins – baked bean size, off the shelf. You can buy the special press in closures and off you go. The product name is PRESSITIN and they are available now. Whether it is a few dozen tins or many thousands you can purchase the tins from Tinware Direct and you are in the tin business.
    You can use the tins for packing almost anything: from boxer shorts to a box of chocolates; from drugs to poisons; from a bottle of whiskey to a bottle of perfume; from a cuddly toy to a high explosive. They can all be safely and securely stored in a tin. “The uses are endless” said inventor Guy Grumbridge “What people like is that it looks like a normal tin can, complete with a standard aluminium ring-pull opening.
    The cans are only available from Tinware Direct Limited and are stocked at their Bedford warehouse for distribution worldwide.

  • Pressitin™

    On the 25th July 2012 the Intellectual Property Office granted a patent for the amazing invention of the manual sealing tin can. It is 5 years since inventor Guy Grumbridge hit on the idea of sealing a can with a simple but ingenious push-on closure.

    In the past cans have all been closed with a cumbersome and expensive seaming machine that literally spun the can and bent the closing end over the tin to form the conventional tin can end. At last, this can now be done by hand in one simple movement.

    Owners of the patent, Tinware Direct Limited, have been in business since 2001. “The lack of can closing machinery meant that most companies were unable to use tin cans for packaging their products, now any one can seal a tin – no skill, no machines, no bother” said Tinware’s MD Guy Grumbridge.

    The product is called PRESSITIN and you can see it for yourself on our stand.
