When it comes to tube packaging, you’ll want something that provides plenty of protection for whatever you end up shipping. And you’re in luck, because there’s a wide world of tube containers out there, and each of those tubes can have something different to offer.
Round or Square?
You already know that cardboard tube packaging comes in different sizes, but did you know that packaging tubes come in more than just one shape? When you’re deciding what size tube your product or project needs, you might decide to forego the traditional round shape and venture into square territory. Whether you’re sending out posters to use at a trade show, or shipping something that needs a little extra padding inside the tube, you won’t run out of options.
Crimped Ends or Plastic Caps?
If your project’s just making a short trip, many people find that crimped ends sealed with tape often works just fine. When there’s a need for some added protection, opting for a shipping tube that comes with plastic caps on each end is a smart idea.
How About Color Options?
Cardboard mailing tubes can come in more than just one color. It’s always a good choice to go with the traditional white tubes, especially if you plan on sending something through the post office. When you need something other than plain mailing tubes, kraft and blue colors await you. These cardboard shipping tubes are just as sturdy and provide the opportunity for your mailing tubes to stand out from the rest of the crowd.
The Cost Factor
Watching your budget and not wasting company resources is always important, but that doesn’t mean the lowest price is always the best one. Take the time to consider your needs, and balance saving money with the importance of investing in cardboard tubes that’ll hold up well in transit. Ultimately, your goal is to get that shipping tube to reach its destination intact, and in good enough shape for the customer to use it again if they want to. That means spending a little more money for tubes that are sturdy enough to do the job and do it right.
