Sweet summertime – ahh… the season that (most) people look forward to. Sun, warm temperatures, vacations, break from school, etc. But the heat and humidity that summer brings can be a game changer when it comes to paper products.
As the temperature in the air increases, so does its ability to retain moisture. When humidity levels increase, the fibers in the paper draw in moisture very quickly, resulting in expansion. For example, think about the doors in your house and how they seem to stick during the summertime. That’s because of materials expanding due to the humidity. The same happens with paper tubes and cores.
During summertime conditions, paper tubes and cores manufactured in high humidity can shrink drastically if an end-user puts them into an air-conditioned room with extremely low humidity. Humidity can weaken the tubes and cores which will then cause them to fail. If used in a timely manner, less moisture will affect the product. Paper tubes and cores should not be stored near any type of heating or cooling unit, in an air stream of heated or cooled air or in the path of a humidifying stream of air. Knowing your storage environment is very critical.
Understanding how moisture and humidity affects paper tubes and cores is imperative for end-users as they are looking for the products to have the best appearance and performance. To ensure optimum performance, control the relative humidity (R.H.) levels and temperature in the processing and storage environments.
Yazoo’s Sales Department provides top-notch service to all customers, big or small. Our team focuses on your pain points and delivers innovative solutions to help make operations more efficient.
We are happy to announce that Wanda Bankert has been promoted to Lead Sales Representative. Wanda has been with Yazoo for 22 years and has been helping our sales department flourish ever since she started with the company. In her new role, she will be assisting the Sales department with any customer, Epicor and operational questions as well as communicating with new and existing customers to discuss their needs and find solutions fit for them, provide quote pricing and lead times and assist customers with the appropriate product selection that is beneficial for their company and customer’s needs.
The family-owned and friendly atmosphere is what she enjoys most about Yazoo. The secret to her 22-year tenure? She says “I enjoy helping customers with their tube and core requirements as well as the generous pay and benefits Yazoo has to offer!”
In her spare time, you can find her spending time with her grandson and family and going antique shopping. A hidden talent of hers? Well, I guess you can say finding new wineries that have great wine — we will call her an amateur wine connoisseur.
Congrats on your promotion, Wanda! We know you are going to help take our Sales Department to the next level!

Have you ever had that annoying time at the post office trying to find the right size box to ship your products in? You end up spending more money on a bigger box to fit your items in and then wonder if something will break/get ruined during shipment because of the extra space in the box you *didn’t* need. You’re not alone and there is an alternative solution (to boxes) to take your frustration away – shipping tubes!
There are many benefits to shipping your products in paper tubes. At Yazoo, we custom manufacture mailing and shipping tubes made to fit your specifications. Paper tubes allow you to ship products without having to pay for more than what you need (i.e. that extra space in the box), bringing your shipping cost down compared to a box. Yazoo’s mailing tubes are very durable, increasing the ability to protect what’s inside and are designed to absorb impact rather than damage the appearance and products if you were to use a box or an envelope.
Paper tubes also offer a unique way to improve the aesthetics of your brand. It’s not every day that you get a product shipped to you in a tube so it will definitely stand out from the sea of competition. Additionally, Yazoo offers cost-effecting branding options to market your company, adding a visual appeal for your consumers. And don’t be so quick to throw away the mailing tube you received your product in – be sure to reuse it as another mailing tube, storage tube or for arts and crafts.
We also stock over 65 sizes of 100% recycled mailing tubes that ship for FREE the same-day (if ordered by 4pm EST). Whatever your needs are, we have you (and your products) covered!

American manufacturing – we’ve seen it fall and we’ve seen it rise. But one thing that continues to become increasingly important is for people to invest in as well as buy American-made products. American manufacturing continues to be a success story as the strength of our country rests on the power of our manufacturing floors. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the United States has 12.75 million manufacturing jobs, employs 9% of the workforce and those jobs pay up to 12% more than others.
American manufacturing offers economic opportunity to hard-working, skilled labors which continues to add more jobs & gives exposure to hands-on experiences. Yazoo understands the importance of supporting our local and national economy. With continuing to keep our manufacturing plants in the United States, we are helping American families thrive financially and strengthen our nation by providing a solid foundation to do so. Our manufacturing operations are the base of strength for future generations to come. By continuing to grow the manufacturing sector, more middle-class jobs are being created and in turn, will help put more money back into the economy. Did you know? For every dollar spent in manufacturing, another $1.81 is added to the economy.
With American manufacturing, customers also receive higher quality products as opposed to overseas operations, especially where their operations aren’t as clean as the U.S. Yazoo constantly invests in our people as well as machines to make sure we are manufacturing exactly what our customers want – American-made, high quality and unparalleled service. Our operations have allowed us to have the competitive speed to market and accessibility to adapt quickly to supply and demand as well as leveraging quality control over our products.
Yazoo’s paper tube and core products have always been 100% American-made since 1902. That’s over 117 years of manufacturing experience in the United States. Our products are the core to your business. We’re focused on helping small to medium sized companies compete big. We believe in helping American businesses succeed and we (will always) believe in America!

American-Made. High-Quality. Unparalleled Service.
When purchasing a product, do you ever find yourself looking at the material the product is made from? How the quality of the products rates – does it fit your standards? And then, do you find yourself searching the tag, label, etc. to see where the product was manufactured? Do you look for products that are specifically made in the United States?
Let’s be honest – it’s becoming harder and harder to find products that are produced in the United States but it’s becoming more critically important to all Americans.
In today’s modern manufacturing, companies are outsourcing to other countries to cut down on their costs, which in return, typically brings down the quality and service of their products. However, that has not and will not ever be the case at Yazoo. Our products have always been 100% American-made since 1902. That’s over 115 years of manufacturing experience in the United States. Our manufacturing facility, located in New Oxford, PA, continues to create more jobs within our community and offers economic growth opportunities for hard working, skilled employees.
We are proud to have our manufacturing facility located in Pennsylvania, which happens to be one of the top 25 states for manufacturing. Over 15,000+ customers rely on Yazoo’s American-made paper tubes and cores. With keeping our manufacturing in the United States, we are able to manufacture high-quality products, have the fastest turnaround time in the industry, and offer top-notch customer service to our customers.
