We’ve had the opportunity to work with some incredible clients over the years to produce some amazing made to measure boxes. From our early beginnings as a family business to our modern facility specialising in bespoke tin design, we have worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes. One of these opportunities saw us work with Makers & Merchants to create some festive tins that even Santa would be chuffed with.
Makers & Merchants have a range of handpicked food and homeware products. These products are sourced, selected, made and crafted by some of the world’s finest artisans. This boutique collection of gifts, ingredients and homeware is uncompromising on quality and seasonality.
We were excited at the prospect of realising this identity through fun and festive tin packaging perfect for Christmas.
The results speak for themselves. The distinctive designs play on the familiar red and white ‘candy cane’ stripe design coupled with yuletide greetings in a bold, impactful font.
This design is timeless and we hope to see our baubles and tins used to decorate trees and store toffees, chocolates and other Christmas treats for years to come.
Along with baubles and biscuit tins, we also worked with this esteemed brand to create a gelato truck sweet tin and several cookie cutters for homemade festive treats.
This gorgeous little gelato truck picked out design features from the rest of the range. This final addition to the collection put a bow on what was a Christmas miracle and we couldn’t be happier with the results.
“Christmas sales have been great. The baubles all sold out in a week from back orders and new Christmas demand. The van has sold better than we thought pre Christmas and we are now set up for the planned initial sales in the new year. Thank you for all your support during this mad crazy transition. The products and service you delivered were fantastic. Your company hits the right note.”
These products are the gift that keeps on giving, ideal as useful storage and Christmas decorations.
This project allowed us to reach the limits of tin design, from simple biscuit tins to bespoke sweet tin shapes.
By going with a timeless design and bold font, this project married Makers and Merchants with the feel-good times of Christmas and spending time with your loved ones.
Tin is sustainable, hardy and looks good. By using tin packaging we were able to increase the shelf appeal of Makers and Merchants products and show off their artisanal talents.
