Product packaging

Product packaging in noble metal cans

Turn your products into eye-catchers for customers even before the covers come off.

You have put a lot of heart and effort into the development of your product? A lot of care in its production and in ensuring its quality? Please don't put it in a plain cardboard box with a simple sticker. Unless, of course, such packaging suits your product and is intentional and not forced. Dress your baby in beautiful clothes so that your customers can admire it from the outside.

Cosmetics packaging

Aluminium cans and glass jars for cosmetics

Don't remain the grey mouse of the industry. Stand out and shine brighter than the market leaders.

Stickers can do it all. Just buy them at the office shop and put them through the laser printer. Does it look good? Sometimes. Does it look professional? Rather not... With our direct printing and high-quality embossing solutions, we give your ointment packaging, your glass jars and your soap tins a high-quality appearance.

Special occasions

Easter eggs as a tin can

Use the festivals for stronger customer loyalty and increase your awareness and recognition.

Whether Easter, Christmas, Women's Day, birthdays, trade fairs or even a company anniversary. Use any of these occasions to surprise your customers with a small gift wrapped in precious metal. Of course with your motif, company logo or business slogan. Idea: Have the individualised biscuit tins filled with biscuits at your local bakery.

Are you ready to stand out from the average?

With the product packaging solutions from GAPADOS, you "smuggle" a permanent advertising medium into the homes of your customers.

What is the best thing about metal packaging?

It looks and is noble and thus increases the value image of your products. Customers don't throw away something so valuable. They continue to use the tin cans. As spice jars, needle boxes, button boxes or screw boxes in the home workshop. Your company logo on the tin. Always in your hand. Always in the field of vision. Subconsciously, surreptitious advertising has an effect on the brain. And as we know, people strive for security. Reach for the familiar. For something they know and which reminds them of the cosy home environment.... After your other products with the same logo as on the screw box in the workshop.

Are we sustainable with our products?

With this question we can spark an extremely large fundamental discussion. There are many opinions and statistics. And as it is with opinions... there is always an opposing opinion. Despite the fact that we sell metal cans (tin cans and aluminium cans) as our main business, we do not want to talk them up in comparison to other packaging options. In the end, everyone has to choose the most suitable packaging for their application. Putting a soap can in the bathroom in a cardboard box..... ? Unfortunately, cream in cardboard doesn't work very well. So then in plastic, glass or aluminium? Which is best? Many say that aluminium is toxic ... ? Aluminium cans are usually coated with a protective varnish suitable for foodstuffs, so that the contents do not come into contact with the material. And metal has an excellent lifespan and recycling rates.

The task:
They were looking for a more exclusive way to package a cotton wool product. The customer already used a tin can, but stuck stickers on it himself. This is time-consuming, as the labels always have to be neatly positioned, and it doesn't look nice if, for example, the label comes off. The tins are currently still running in very small quantities.

The solution:
UV digital print on the lid of the rectangular tin. The metal packaging looks more professional and of higher quality. The end customer immediately has the feeling that he has bought a high-quality product.

The task:
I was looking for packaging for cosmetic creams. It should be light and unbreakable because of its use as a travel companion. If possible, no plastic and printed with the customer's motif on the lid.

The solution:
Our round aluminium tins with screw lids are very well suited for this purpose. The direct print gives the product a professional impression, which often removes the last doubts, especially for new customers.
