When Darlings Real Food first approached Tinplate, we hit it off immediately. Both family run businesses, located in rural settings and of a similar mind-set. More crucially though, we gave them the answers they'd been looking for.
Darlings urgently required a tin, produced and delivered within a 10 week time frame; a request met with a firm 'no' from other manufacturers they'd considered.
As the requested tin size was already in our tooling range, and the colours required for print were PMS colours, we eliminated the need to proof print; all aiding the tight deadline.
We paper wrapped the tin, to ensure that the lid and body artwork fitted correctly and with trust continued to build, final approval by our client was agreed by simply viewing a photograph.
From here we ran straight to bulk print, with our own staff present to press pass the print on-line ensuring we were meeting the correct print colours. We were then present again on-line at the start of production to ensure that the embossing and positioning of print lined up perfectly. With photo visuals again sent for approval.
We delivered the first batch of 500+ tins via airfreight, within 6 weeks of receiving the order and artwork, with the balance arriving as scheduled. Our client is delighted with the quality of service and product we delivered.
