Europe Metal Design Capabilities

Adding versatility and distinction to brands

The versatility of metal as a packaging material is often its most surprising quality. It can be fashioned impressively into packaging such as blow-shaped cans, fluted bowls and debossed aerosols. Metal packaging also provides an excellent printing surface, so it’s easy to decorate with high quality graphics and high definition imagery.

From freestyle shaping to embossing, debossing and beading, the flexibility of metal means a world of possibilities. Using innovative techniques and adding aesthetic design features creates unrivalled shelf appeal and adds value to a brand.

Metal packaging requires no refrigeration and saves up to 70% in energy consumption
