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!

     

We live in a world where we see celebrities or high-profile people getting custom clothes made, custom homes being built, custom cars being designed; the list goes on and on with the main focus being on the single word custom.  The word “custom” usually tends to scare people away and typically their eyes (+ minds) see multiple dollar signs and excessive lead-times that send you into the next year.  However, custom shouldn’t be a scary word as it is meant to be tailored to be exactly what you want.

When looking to get something custom-made, keep in mind that not all products are made equally. You need to make sure that you do your research on the company you are looking at having make custom products/items for you.  When something is custom-made, you do not want to try to cut corners.

At Yazoo, we recognize that everyone needs something different – whether that be a specific I.D., wall thickness, length, etc. We manufacture our products to fit your specifications so you get exactly what you want and need. Not only do our products improve the way you do business, they also provide a peace of mind with our superior strength and top-notch quality, coupled with the fastest lead-times in the industry. We also offer a variety of cost-effective custom capabilities to help your business grow. We help take the guessing game out of what you need. Our knowledgeable Sales team is made up of innovative thinkers + problem-solvers. We’re the paper tube + core experts… discover the difference with us!

      

Each day, millions of consumers examine and browse through a wide variety of products, which means companies are faced with the ultimate challenge of making their products stand out in a crowd of competition.  When it comes to branding, it’s much more (and bigger) than just a logo.  A key component to an effective marketing strategy is communicating your brand across all channels and creating an image that is positive, respected and well-known.

Branding is telling people who you are and what you do.  A product’s packaging is a brand’s first impression.  Think to yourself – what impression does your product make when it arrives to the customer?  Will it motivate them to be a repeat buyer?  Whatever your product may be, you’ll want to invest in packaging that is going to help sell your product and ultimately your company.  If you’re sending your product in a blank shipping tube or winding your product on a plain core, you’re lessening the chance of visibility and recognition of your company.

Having a strong brand with emphasis on visual appearance means there is a positive impression of the company among consumers and they are likely to do business with you given the familiarity of using a company that they can trust.  Being properly branded gives the impression of not only being professional but well-strategized industry experts.

Rather than your typical brown and round mailing tube or paper core, brands are opting to add a wow factor of eye-catching logos and designs to their packaging.  Companies across the nation are relying on Yazoo’s custom capabilities such as in-line printing, custom labels or liners to increase the consumer appeal even further with branded packaging.  This option helps give companies the competitive edge to reach their target audience and convince them to select their product over the competition.  Your brand is guaranteed to stand out from the rest when you choose Yazoo’s high quality products coupled with our custom capabilities.
