South Africa’s leading supplier of Canned Gifts, Custom Tins & Money Cans

Since 1994, Can It has been a leading tin can manufacturer and supplier of metal tin containers and collection tins in South Africa. Our vast range of custom tin boxes, printed tins, ointment tins, money cans and other unique promotional products are now available worldwide.

We have proudly supplied millions of plain tin cans and tin boxes to our valued customers and non-profits both in and outside of South Africa and as far as Australia, Britain and the United States. Can It is a tin can manufacturer, supplying to retailers, wholesalers, the tin packaging industry, as well as the promotional and corporate gifting industries. Can It has been a proud partner of many successful promotions, effective marketing projects and advertising campaigns. We specialize in effective and cost-effective custom packaging for your product, product launch, promotion, brand activation and corporate gifting needs.

Can It also plays a unique role in the crowd-funding and charity industries, as the distribution of branded money cans and collection tins began with us in 1994, at the dawn of democracy in South Africa, when we began as a small manufacturer and supplier of just donation boxes and piggy banks. Since then we have grown our product offerings and services as well as our customer base throughout South Africa and we now enjoy  excellent customer relations in Australia, UKAmerica, Mozambique, Tanzania and Namibia, to name a few.

Whatever your packaging needs may be, from printed tin containers, custom sealed cans, tin box packaging, money cans and charity cans, to promotions and promotional ideas, desk-drops, plant-cans and canned-air, Can It has the solution for you and your brand.

Lightweight and adaptable, the premium tinplate we use to manufacture bespoke tin boxes and cans is easily moulded to best suit your contents, yet robust enough to provide lasting protection. We also stock a wide range of ready-made tin containers, money cans and tin cans in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Our cans are easily recycled, but we find they’re rarely discarded. People seem to find another use for them, even if just to look at. Just as the packaging of an email determines if you open it or not, so too does the packaging of your product, corporate gift and promotion determine the return on your investment.

A branded can or printed canister, is never thrown away, your clients will always keep it, as a sentimental token of your care and concern for them. Whether they keep it in their offices as a promotional stationery holder on their desks, or at home to re-use in the kitchen or bathroom, no other packaging offers better retention value and brand recognition than a custom tin can that is also useful once opened and constantly driving your message and branding through, subliminally displaying your brand wherever our cans are found.

Our dedicated and experienced team are on hand to guide you in creating a successful and effective packaging solution for your product or promotion.

Specialty tin packaging adds significant perceived value to any product, be it cookies, chocolate, tea, clothing or promotional items like gift cards. Your brand, your message and your image never fade on tin boxes. Can It is the ultimate one-stop shop, providing design and production of custom tin packaging, all details pertaining to freight, customs and duty, insurance and, of course, advertising and marketing services in South Africa, neighboring countries and anywhere in the world.

The packaging of your product in tin boxes is a lasting and important component of your marketing message. Specialty packaging impacts on the fundamental interaction between your customer and your brand – on the store shelf, where the shape, color and design of your custom packaging may determine whether or not the consumer puts your product in their shopping cart. Also consider that custom tin boxes from Can It last for years and neither the gift-giving moment nor your brand will be forgotten any time soon.

This ‘keep-ability’ and reuse factor follows on from the initial appeal of a good looking tin container that helps to give brands the wow factor they need to get noticed, extending the visibility of a product long after it has been bought. Even the most ornate cardboard package will be discarded once the product inside is used. But your custom tin packaging, with your company logo and unique design, will be kept around for years and your printed tin boxes will look brand new without any loss in colour years from now. Can It tin boxes are not only very attractive at first sight, but are also likely to become a keepsake or collectible item – or at the very least a storage compartment for what have you!

Independent and founded in 1994, we are a safe pair of hands when it comes to crafting beautiful tin packaging out of tinplate. And our customers tell us that from concept to completion, we are responsive and reliable with processes in place that are as seamless as the tins we create.


Engage Can It as the custom tin manufacturer for your tin packaging requirements and we manage EVERYTHING for you – tin proof samples, mass-manufacturing, packing in export cartons, sea freight, insurance, customs, duty, logistics and delivery to your doorstep. Whether in the USA, Britain, South Africa or elsewhere – request and you will receive an ‘all for one’ all-inclusive price per finished item. We do all the work so you can focus on your core business.


We take great pride in the quality of the design, printing and assembly of your custom tin boxes. We all know that distinctive specialty and seasonally relevant packaging matters even more during a gift-giving season. Shelves are crowded with numerous products of different shapes and colors. Stand out from the crowd by investing in a beautiful custom tin package especially designed for the season. Unique and beautiful specialty tin boxes give your product a much better chance of being noticed – and purchased – during any busy gift-giving season.


As a respected can manufacturer, we place each of our products through strict quality checks. These include ensuring cans are 100% leak-proof, visual checks, weld monitoring, on-line testing and continual calibration to detect minute variances and imperfections. This ensures exceptionally low margins of wastage. Can It will provide your business with a high quality and unique tin package to make your product nearly irresistible.
