Pre Printed Cans

Pre-printed cans come stacked on an 8 ft. tall, 4 x 4 pallet with a cost of approx. 12 cents per can. Note: You will need to purchase 2 semi-truck trailers full of one label - which means there is a large up-front expense and the need for a large amount of storage space. Some of our customers store their cans in trailers or shipping containers so that their warehouse space is not consumed with cans. It’s a great way to go if you have the space and cash flow. While the market is always changing, it has been our finding that Ardagh is usually the best price and easiest to work with for the small breweries. Ball is the next best. We are told Crown is not taking any new customers at this time. All info is based on our current customer input and is subject to change.

Shrink Sleeve Cans

These cans come pre- sleeved and stacked on 4 x 4 pallet, 8 foot tall or 4 foot tall, depending on where you buy. The cost runs about 22 cents a can for 12 oz and close to 30 cents for 16 oz. The minimum orders vary from source to source. Mossberg serves the Mid West and does a great job with small minimums and multiple skews. So does VERST Group. Verst is a bit of a powerhouse and also has its own trucking company, allowing them to distribute nation wide. Novo Brazil in Cholu Vista Ca has some of the best graphics anywhere. Verst requires a $2,000 one time fee for plates where Mossberg does not. Both of these suppliers offer lids, cardboard and pack-teks. I included Tr-Pak even though I do not have any experience with them. I am told by Old Fire House Brewery in Ohio that they are competitive and have good service, they all are a one stop shop and make the supply side relatively painless.

Pressure Sensitive Cans

These cans come bright (bare) and stacked on 4 x 4 pallet, 8 foot tall or 4 foot tall. The cost runs about 10 cents a can for 12 oz and close to 14 cents for 16 oz. The minimum orders vary from source to source. We have customers who buy just a half of a trailer at a time from Ardahg. We integrate a label system on the end of the line for approximately $15,000. Any time you change flavors, just change your labels out. This give HUGE flexibility. The labels run about 4 to five cents a piece. Look at the link below for an example of an integrated label machine:
