How to Ship Sleek (or skinny) Cans

If you’re shipping sleek style beverage cans, you’ve come to the right place. You already knew that though. Sleek cans have become a very popular style of beverage can, especially in the past few years. The most popular sizes of them are 12oz, 8.4oz (250ml), and 8oz. Of those three, 12oz are by far the most popular, and many beverage companies have started using them. A wide variety of drinks are canned in sleek style cans, including wine, seltzer, cold brew coffee, kombucha, cider, RTD cocktails, sparkling water, as well as CBD / THC infused seltzer, and kratom infused beverages, to name a few. These companies include White Claw, Topo Chico, Mitra-9, Tractor, and Bimble.


Now that so many companies are shipping their beverages in sleek (or skinny) cans direct to consumer, there must be an easy and trustworthy way of shipping them, right? Until we came along, there actually were no quality sleek can shipping boxes on the market. Needless to say, there were many dented and damaged cans shipped, before the Slim Can Pods along.

Slim Can Pods make it very simple to ship any size sleek can, in a number of different quantities. We offer shipping boxes for sleek cans in 4 pack, 6 pack, 8 pack, 12 pack, 16 pack, and 24 packs. These Pods will fit 12oz, 8.4oz, and 8oz sleek or slim style cans. 12oz sleeks are used by just about every type of beverage company out there, from canned wine to CBD drinks.cbd seltzer

8oz sleek cans have been very popular with the craft soda, RTD,  and THC and CBD companies lately, allowing them to sell drinks in smaller sized units.
