#318 :: Clic-Clac Tins

December 22, 2004

visit web search ‘popup’, advice ‘width=500, ask height=500,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0′); return false”>Yin to the raygun’s yang, the Clic-Clac is useful, modest and crisp – an elegant tribute to simple industrial design. Press the center of the puckered lid and the edge-tabs around the rim flip open. Squeeze the rim, and the puckered lid springs up again with a pop, clamping the tabs firmly into place once more. Press-open. Squeeze-closed. For a while, it seemed these tins were available only in a tiny size, full of silly mints and emblazoned with dot-com logos. But I just found a source for larger, 3.5-inch-diameter models at the amazing Surfas restaurant supply store a couple miles from here. They make a happy sound.

    I wish to order 10,000. We are a church regisitered here in Canada. I would like them gold plated and our church emblem eched on the top lid. The sample I have is sliver tin with candy mints in it.
    It is 1.75 inch diameter, 17/32 inch height with lid off.
    I would also like instruction sticker on bottom in both English and French.
    If possible, please give me a unit price and e-mail me at

    Thanking you in advance,
