Q. How can I determine the dimensions of the cans listed on Quality Containers website?
A. The dimensions of cans are represented on Quality Containers website using a system that is standard in the can industry. Can sizes are represented by a series of numbers, which describe the can dimensions in inches at 1/16" intervals.
Example 1. 307 x 409 can measures:
The first number represents the can's nominal diameter, therefore 307= 3-7/16 inches
The second number represents the can's nominal height, therefore 409= 4-9/16 inches
Example 2. 502 x 504 can measures:
The first number represents the can's nominal diameter, therefore 502= 5-2/16 or 5-1/8 inches.
The second number represents the can's nominal height, therefore 504= 5-4/16 or 5-1/4 inches.
Q. What is your minimum order quantity?
A. For stock items the minimum order is one carton which depending on the size of the can ordered would be between 27 and 200 cans. For non stock items the typical minimum order quantity is one pallet, which again depending on the size of can ordered would be in the range of 336 and 6600 cans.
Q. What type of material are your cans made out of?
A. Slipcover, general line, and custom cans are all made using the highest quality electrolytic tin plate (tin coated steel). Beverage cans are manufactured using aluminum. Pails are manufactured using cold rolled steel, and our plastic containers are manufactured using FDA approved virgin HDPE. All our products are readily accepted in municipal bluebox recycling programs.

The typical minimum order quantity of custom printed containers is in the 10 000-20 000 piece range. The minimums may increase or decrease depending on the total size (area) of the can body.
