With a multicolour process that uses both spot colour and four colour to achieve optimal results time after time, your specifications are considered every step of the way to ensure your product hits the mark.
A recommended 1200mm x 1000mm maximum metal sheet size is used for tinplate, which, when complemented with our modern, customisable multicolour and colour matching printing facility and unrivalled industry experience, ensures your high standards of consistency and quality are met.
