Beverage can innovations
We continually strive to provide interesting product innovations and enhancements that deliver a point-of-different for our customers’ beverage brand. These innovations include:
Coloured & Shaped Tabs
The perfect way to customise beverage cans, coloured and shaped pull-tabs allow your branding to be enhanced. Laser incising enables detailed logos to be etched onto the tab – a simple way to reinforce branding through to final consumption.
Coloured Can Ends
If impact is what you’re after, then coloured ends deliver this. A wide variety of colours are available to support the identity of our customers’ brands.
Can shaping changes the nature of the traditional aluminium beverage can. Enabling custom shapes to be created on the can, which can then be supported by clever graphics, is an easy way to attract attention on the shelf.
Embossing & Debossing
A great way to enhance the consumption experience, embossing and debossing on beverage cans provides a tactile reinforcement of branding. This embellishment is a simple way to add a point of difference to canned beverages.
A range of specialty inks such as thermochromic, fluoro and tactile inks provide another option to enhance our customers’ beverage cans. These inks can help to support brand campaigns or simply attract the interest of consumers.
High Quality Digital Printing
The ability to print photo-quality designs on beverage cans is a new innovation for the beverage can market. This gives our customers more flexibility to create high-resolution images and logos
A range of consumer promotion technologies such as Quick Response (QR) codes help to extend brand campaigns beyond traditional methods. This technology leverages social media to increase consumer engagement and interaction.
