Tin containers have maintained their popularity in this country, even after two hundred years of use. We have progressed from utilitarian, hinged containers to a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and designs. One of the most popular current trends is mesh tins. These see-through containers are often chosen to hold favors for events such as weddings, banquets, and conventions.

Opportunities for Mesh Tins

The advantage of mesh tins is the ability to peek at the contents of the package. They are usually made of brushed metal and have a shiny, slip cover top. Items often packaged in these tins are candies, mints, decorative soaps, candles, perfume, and wine. The contents are often packaged in colorful gift wrap or tissue which shows through the mesh. This provides a very sophisticated yet festive package.

The tops of the tins are often left plain. But they can be embossed or screen printed. Colors are usually silver or gold. For weddings, the bride and groom names or the date of the wedding may be embossed on the lid. Sentimental quotes or symbols are another popular choice.

People love the look, weight, and feel of tin containers. Mesh tins provide added elegance and are a perfect favor container for a special occasion. This type of packaging has a trendy, updated look with the comfortable feel of an old favorite. The tins will be recycled in many cases as a modern addition to home decor. The possibilities of decorative tins are endless.
