About Your Tea Storage Tins

    Made from strong, silver metal, your unique tea caddy tin is a versatile piece of storage. Its classic use is for keeping tea leaves, tea bags and coffee nice and fresh, and you can use it for a plethora of other things.

    Customise 5 areas of your tea storage tins; all 4 sides and also the lid. The hard wearing sticker paper wraps around the entire tin, so it won't peel away at the corners and can easily be wiped clean.

How your Metal Tea Caddy is Made & Printed

We print your design onto one large sheet of a durable, highly adhesive sticker paper, manually cut to size and wrap it around your tin with precision. The paper won't peel away at the corners due to its durability, and the fact your design is printed onto a single sheet of sticker paper. 

Care Instructions

Fortunately, the durable, hard wearing sticker paper we use is an easy to clean surface that won't peel away. Simply use a slightly damp cloth to wipe away any stains that might occur. Do not place in the dishwasher or immerse in water, as this will affect your printed areas.

  • No Soak

Design Tips

With your unique tea storage tins, you have the potential to customise 5 areas with completely different designs. This works well for monogram designs where you can print each family member's initial on the 4 sides, and the lid can be decorated with your surname, coat of arms or a pattern that complements your decor. However you can also keep things simple and wrap the entire metal tea caddy with the same illustration, painting or artwork. Whichever way it's positioned, your featured design will always be visible, ideal for branding and event promotions.

Frequently asked questions:

Can each side feature a different design?

Each printable area can have a totally different design, giving your metal tea caddy several looks in one. The lid is also printed which serves as a good space for a name, logo or motif.

Will the paper peel away at the corners?

Because we use one single sheet of durable photo paper, we can wrap this around the entire body of the tea caddy tin. This means the paper cannot be peeled away or come loose at the corners.

Is it suitable for loose tea leaves?

The tins are food safe, making them suitable for all of your favourite hot drinks. Tea bags, fresh tea leaves, coffee granules, sugar, hot chocolate - the snap shut lid keeps all the contents fresh.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)


    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.

Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
