There are a variety of materials that cookie tins can be made from. The most popular material is metal, as it provides a sturdy and durable option. However, cookie tins can also be made from plastic, wood, or even glass. But the question is: which one of them is the best choice?

2.1 Plastic cookie tins

3. What is the purpose of custom cookie tins?

We need to figure out: who are the people who customize cookie tins? And why? The former question is just simple, they are the brand owner or manufacturer of cookies.

The latter question is more complicated, the reasons are as follows:

3.1 Protect cookies from breaking

Compared to carton packaging and bags, custom cookie tins are significantly tougher and have better resistance to compression. Cookies are very fragile food and always need to be protected, whether in transit or on the supermarket shelf.

3.2 Cookie tins make it easier to store cookies

There are always bumps during the transportation of cookies, which may cause them to crumble. In carriages or warehouses, cookies are often stored in piles of layers. Custom cookie tins made of metal can be stacked higher and save more on storage costs.

3.3 Cookie tins are the best way to promote your product

The delicacy of custom cookie tins is more than a box or bag. Consumers are more likely to notice cookies packaged in cookie tins. Market research has shown that cookie tins are more popular because this type of packaging creates a good impression on consumers. In contrast, bagged cookies give an impression of cheapness.

3.4 Cookie tins can be used for storage or decoration

When you have finished eating the food in the cookie tins, you can wash and dry the tin and use it as a storage box, which is both environmentally friendly and economical.

Custom cookie tins can also be used for decoration. They can be used to display cookies at a party or event. They can also be used to make a unique and personal gift.

Yes, they are absolutely safe. cookie tins are made of food-grade materials, both metal and plastic are required to meet the food safety standards like FDA or ROHS tests. Many brands seal cookies in bags before placing them in cookie tins to increase shelf life and increase food safety.

However, at no time do we recommend that you heat cookie tins directly, as this may lead to unnecessary and accidental injury.

9. Custom cookie tins production process

9.1 Shearing

Before entering the production process of cookie tins, we first cut the iron or aluminum sheets (usually delivered in rolls) initially into small sheets one after another. The raw material of cookie tins is purchased directly from our origin, which is cheaper and of better quality. This is the first and most important step to ensuring the quality and safety of your products.

9.2 Printing

Our Fuji 4-color UV printing machine has the industry’s leading printing technology and can print all the patterns at once, which greatly avoids the color difference caused by repeated printing.

After printing the cookie tins, we also color the metal plate to avoid fading or paint loss and to prevent rusting.

9.3 Cutting

Unlike the first step of shearing, this step is done in preparation for the subsequent punching. We will further cut the sheet metal into a specific shape, of course, this is calculated in advance.

In this process, there is a possibility of inferior products with raw edges or inaccurate dimensions. At Fine Tins, these situations are almost impossible because we use the most advanced fully automatic cutting machines.

9.4 Stamping Forming

Stamping Forming is the most important and essential step in the whole production process of cookie tins. If something goes wrong in this step, all the work will be lost. Failure in stamping can result in thousands of defective products on a production line, which can have a significant impact on delivery times.

Therefore, customers must choose the cookie tins manufacturer carefully and make sure to inspect the production plant carefully when visiting the factory to avoid risks to the maximum extent.

9.5 Cleaning

In the process of producing cookie tins, it is inevitable that debris and bacteria will be left in the tins. Therefore, at the end of production, we will fully sterilize and clean the cookie tins to ensure that each cookie tin handed to you is clean and hygienic.

9.6 Cookie tin packaging

During a long sea journey (this usually takes 20 to 40 days), problems can arise if the packaging is inadequate, such as:


  • Printing scratches
  • Rustiness
  • The flattened Tin cans
  • Concave points


To avoid these problems, we pack each cookie tin in OPP bags and use airbags to avoid collisions during shipping.

9.7 Warehousing

If you are temporarily unable to receive your shipment due to force majeure, that’s okay, we have a huge warehouse to store your cookie tins and will be able to send out your shipment quickly when the time comes.

Don’t worry about humidity, our warehouse is well protected from rain and moisture, and is maintained and inspected by dedicated personnel.

10. Tips for custom cookie tins

Customizing cookie tins can be very complex and there are many details that need attention. If you are customizing cookie tins for the first time, you are sure to make some mistakes: misjudging the size, unreasonable or overly complex shapes, picking the wrong pattern design, etc.

10.1 Size 

The size of the cookie tins can be customized according to your requirements, depending on how many cookies you want to put inside a cookie tin and the size of the cookies. The same series of cookies may be packaged in different capacities, and that’s okay, you can customize multiple sizes of cookie tins at the same time to meet your sales needs.

10.2 Shape

Generally speaking, cookie tins are mainly round and square in shape. Of course, many holiday specials or cookies developed for children will require a more varied shape. As a professional cookie tins manufacturer, we can customize cookie tins in various shapes according to your requirements.

10.3 Raw materials

What you may not know is that not all cookie tin manufacturers have a stable and quality supply chain of raw materials. The selection and supply of raw materials, has always been one of our strengths.

10.4 Pattern design

The pattern design can be considered one of the factors that directly affect sales, as the first thing consumers notice is often the packaging of the cookies. The pattern design needs to meet the aesthetic standards of your target customers. In addition, we can also customize special packaging for holidays or seasons, such as Christmas, Easter and Children’s Day.

10.5 Printing quality

The common printing methods of cookie tins are screen printing, CMYK printing and laser printing. Our printing quality is guaranteed by using the most advanced fully automatic printing machines and non-toxic pigments.

11. The cost of custom cookie tins

11.1 Raw material costs

China is the world’s largest producer of metals, and we have the most stable supply and the cheapest prices. A stable supply chain and favorable prices can ensure our cost is low enough. This means that we can offer relatively low quotations.

11.2 Labor costs

Although you can find cheaper labor in Southeast Asian countries, we all know that their production skills and craftsmanship are nowhere near the level of China.

China is one of the most populous countries in the world, and we have an ample workforce and a large enough area to place larger-scale assembly lines. This means that our labor costs are actually lower than those of Southeast Asian countries.

11.3 Cost of consumables

Usually, a small portion of the cost of consumables is included in the price of cookie tins. For example, printing, energy supply for production machines, shipping costs, etc. If you buy in large enough quantities, these costs are not even worth mentioning. This is one of the advantages of cookie tins manufacturers: the more you buy, the cheaper the unit price will be.

Fine tins’ extensive experience can help you solve every problem in the procurement and production process. If you are looking for opportunities in cookie tins wholesale, leave the difficulties to us, and what we will give you will only be the perfect cookie tins.
