Shipping based on Product Type

So Maybe I am just confused. I watched all the shipping videos but there does not seem to be a good way to do shipping based on product type.

My situation: I have three product types. Small Tins, Big Tins, and Bags.

The small tins to ship are $12. The big tins are $15. And the Bags are $12 for 16 bags.

Is there a way to set shipping rates based on product type? I know the UI of this is a little backwards because it means the customer would have to either 1) select a shipping method for each product or 2) select a the same shipping option for all products, not necessarily the most desirable, but not too worried about that right now. :-)

Let me know what you think.

thanks for the suggestion! Ended up just using a entity has field and looping over all the items.

Now the problem is with the quantities of items. But I think that is for a different post.
