Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


Corporate film made by the Vereenigde Blikfabrieken (Association of Tin Manufacturers) and the Dordrecht-based Metaalwarenfabriek.

Around 1900, the demand in the Netherlands for tin packaging began to increase, especially for decorated tins.

The tin industry in the Netherlands was therefore becoming more and more sophisticated: the industrial production of tinplate printing became the norm, whereas manual tinsmithing was fading away.

In this film we see two examples of industrial tin-printing in the 1930s. It shows how the famous tins made by the Droste chocolate company were produced.
