Mailing tubes are long, cylindrical containers used to safely transport rolled items such as posters, documents, blueprints, and other similar materials. These tubes are typically made of sturdy cardboard or plastic and have caps on both ends to keep the contents secure during shipping. Mailing tubes are a convenient and safe way to send rolled items through the mail, as they protect the contents from damage and allow for easy transportation. These tubes are often lightweight and easy to store, making them a practical choice for both businesses and individuals who need to send rolled items through the mail.
Mailing tubes are one of the most striking packaging supplies out there. A long cylinder made of spiral wound 3 ply paperboard, their reinforced shape makes them both crush and dent resistant. They’re ideal for shipping out large or important documents, vintage movie posters, equipment components and other goods. Available most often in kraft and white colors, their physical uniqueness is unmissable while in transit, making them great for catching the eyes of both repeat and prospective customers. End caps create tight, secure seals at both ends of cardboard tubes, protecting shipments from unexpectedly opening during their travels. Like other versatile and useful packaging options, shipping tubes aren’t limited to just a cylinder shape. They’re also offered in formats such as triangle, square, telescopic and more. Each is designed to protect varying types of objects and components, while still using quality materials and offering the same strength and security as the more common cylindrical type. They can accommodate long but narrow car parts, blueprints and sensitive documents, even unexpected objects such as fishing rods, baseball bats or glass décor. If you’re looking to ship items that wouldn’t be well served by boxes or mailers, cardboard tubes are a fantastic addition to your packaging strategy. If you’re looking for a packaging supply you can use in unique and unexpected ways, mailing tubes have some interesting potential. Who would expect roses or flowers delivered to them in a grouping of tubes in a heart shape? Or, a tree-shaped grouping used as a holiday advent calendar? Or popping open a tube to discover it stuffed full of chocolate and candy? Imagination and creativity can take you quite far, and in this case, tubes can take you the rest of the way.
