LEX12 premium cigar tins

LEX12 premium cigar tinsLEX12 cigars, recently launched by S&M Brands, are designed to appeal to consumers with an eye for premium products, in both the cigarette and little-cigar market. The embossed tin, manufactured and screen printed by JL Packaging Group, bears the company's thoughtfully crafted branding while protecting the contents and maintaining the freshness of the tobacco. Further, the function of the tins and the carton offer maximum efficiency and convenience to the retailers that offer them to customers.


According to Mariah Garner, S&M Brands marketing manager, "While the top of each tin is embossed with the LEX12 logo, the bottom of each tin is debossed in exactly the same position, so each of the five tins can nest in the folding carton we pack them in."


Each hand-packed tin holds 12 black-filter cigars, in either 84 or 100 sizes, and is sealed to maintain freshness. The tins are shipped to retailers in folding carton packs of five, which double as point-of-sale displays. Cartons are packaged in cases of 10; an optional retail display case holds 30 tins.
