Beverage cans are available in a variety of sizes to meet your brand’s needs, most commonly starting from 5.5 ounces and going all the way up to 24 ounces.
Cans are one of the most cost effective packaging options available to beverage companies. The cost per unit of aluminum cans is significantly less than the cost of plastic or glass bottles. Aluminum is also a lighter material than glass or plastic, which means it is less expensive to ship. The only potential drawback is that can manufacturers typically require their customers to order larger quantities than bottle manufacturers require.

The larger order quantity required by aluminum can manufacturers is often offset by the additional cost savings cans supply by not requiring a separate label. Can manufacturers like Ball and Rexam print the beverage artwork directly on the can, which is included in the per unit price. If your beverage is going into a bottle you will need to pay for labels to be printed and applied to your packaging. More Info >
There are many creative paths you can take when designing artwork for your can. One example is implementing new ink technology, such as fluorescent and glow in the dark ink. You can also design multipacks for your beverage, which gives you more space to highlight and advertise your brand on the shelf.
Another benefit aluminum cans have over other options is that they are the most environmentally friendly beverage packaging available. These cans can be recycled over and over again, which helps reduce waste and preserve energy. Aluminum also has the highest recycling rate, beating out plastic bottles, glass bottles, and tetrapak cartons. More Info >
