Design and Innovation
Silver Crane, where imagination meets innovation...
In a fiercely competitive market, our passion for tin packaging ensures that we are always at the cutting edge of innovative design – generating excitement in the worldwide market rather than following it!
In-house Design Studio
Our in-house design studio is our pride and joy! We love coming up with new concepts, and we thrive in the ongoing pursuit of ‘WOW’. Our team of ten highly talented artists produce outstanding leading edge tin concepts and designs daily. We are uniquely experienced and positioned to fulfil any tin brief…anything is possible when you have the knowledge and passion we do!
Design and Innovation
Custom Tin Design Process
We can create initial concepts, fulfil briefs or work with existing brand assets and licences.
Our state-of-the-art technology enables us to create 3D visuals and prototypes.
Our highly skilled design studio creates finely detailed artwork focusing on colour and impact – the devil is in the detail!
Print, Proofing and Samples
We have a detailed process for checking and controlling final artwork and finished samples to ensure the highest quality finish.
Innovation and Style
Our painstaking attention to detail truly brings our creations to life. From colour matching confetti inside a Halloween tin to the detailed retro features on our radios – you could almost mistake them for the real thing! We like to think outside the ‘tin’, whether that’s mixing materials such as adding a plastic nose to a snowman or a fluffy bobble on a hat, embossing and debossing or experimenting with print techniques.

Movement and sound
Light…Sound…Action! We were the first to bring the popular spinning musical carousel to market and more recently we were the pioneers for the light up house tin. We continue to push boundaries both with modern digital technologies and traditional mechanical methods, to really bring your tin to life!
We also take equal joy in ensuring that the execution is as strong as the concept itself, possessing the unique expertise to bring our craziest ideas to life. We make what others can’t – we offer product that truly stands out. To help sell new concepts to both internal and external departments, we can provide beautiful high quality 3D visuals and life like prototypes using our state-of-the-art technology including our two 3D printers.
