Services used

Alma de Cuba Coffee

A single-origin coffee brand, Alma de Cuba came to P. Wilkinson Containers for a short run of bespoke tins for their imported coffee from Cuba. The tin was for use in London restaurants and markets, and online sales.

Alma de Cuba requires a bespoke full-printed tin, with graphics created by Big Fish, a renowned London design agency. The quality and finish were to be luxurious, to meet the criteria of the high-end restaurants and boutique retailers it would sell from. The final selection was for 1 litre 113mm diameter, 120mm tall lever lid tins which we manufactured on site in London at our William Say factory, before bespoke litho printing.

Bird & Blend

Bird & Blend – suppliers of loose tea and teabags – first consulted with P. Wilkinson Containers in 2018 before returning to us in the summer of 2021 to become a client. They wanted a tin caddy supplier who could meet short lead times as a local firm, and who could help them improve their environmental credentials with recyclable packaging choices.

Bird & Blend selected a bespoke 75mm diameter, 166mm tall slip lid tin for their tea caddies, which are manufactured in London at our William Say factory. The local manufacturing option was one of the major attractions for Bird & Blend, as they were looking to move away from packaging imports from the Far East and were keen to work with a British supplier.

The bespoke litho printed design is completed at the Wilkinsons site, before Bird & Blend add their signature black label. They have commissioned several versions of the tin, with a range of seasonal and celebration designs.

The Bird & Blend tins also have an ‘eco message’ debossed on the bottom of the tins: ‘made using solar power’. The client is delighted with their green packaging credentials and include them in their own sales pitch: “Using a local supplier, combined with being made using renewable energy generated from Solar Power, this tin has a much lower carbon footprint than tins imported from abroad!”
