14 Best Tin Box Mockups (+ Free Can PSDs) 2024

tin box mockups

It took us 4+ months to test and use 50+ free and premium tin box mockups to curate the ultimate metal packaging PSD templates collection.

Today, we kept it metal – from tuna tins and metal tea boxes to canned food and confectionery tins.

Along with making the list as versatile as possible, we also based mockups on:

  • 100% layered structure (easy customization)
  • Smart objects (quick design inclusion)
  • Multiple views/angles (except for free mockups)
  • Editable background (custom/transparent)
  • High-quality (large dimension)

You can now make a tin packaging design that SHINES. (Make it more “grabbable” – for the shelves.)

Don’t miss the goodies.

This post covers:
