Paper tubes are great for mailing and shipping products, storing items in a garage, and protecting machine parts.  But, they are also great for launching rockets!  We always say that the possibilities are endless with Yazoo’s paper tubes and this blog post proves just that!

The Rocketry Team at Spring Grove Area High School has been around for many years.  Each year, the team competes in several different competitions.  The Rocketry team members are held to the same academic eligibility standards that are set for sports, music and other groups.  The team must design, build and launch their own rockets without any help, aside from safety and supervision of construction from their program Director, Mr. Brian Hastings.

All rockets are designed on a program called RockSim that also allows students to do simulated launches with motors until they are happy with the desired flight and altitude.  After construction, Mr. Hastings conducts safety inspections before the rockets prepare for launch.  “F motors” and smaller can be flown near the school, while larger motors and rockets are either flown in MD or VA, which they try to schedule a monthly launch for.

The SG Rocketry Team is utilizing Yazoo’s donation of heavy-duty paper tubes for their Target Altitude team.  Rockets are required to be constructed from either cardboard or fiberglass tubes. Our paper tubes help keep the rocket stable during launch and are also going to be used to transport the rockets in the near future.  This team is responsible for getting the rocket to reach an impressive height of 1001’ on an F motor.  This well-known Rocketry Team has quite the impressive track record for many years.  In fact, this past weekend, Spring Grove took first place in the Target Altitude Competition at Battle of the Rockets.  This win placed them ahead of all high school and university teams!

Best of luck to the SG Rocketry Team as they are gearing up for TARC 2019, where they will compete against 800 teams nationwide in the world’s largest model rocket competition.  The top 10 teams will split over $100,000 and the top 24 teams are invited to participate in the NASA Student Launch. We’re rooting for you all!

        

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.

      

Have you ever walked into a grocery store and saw the Coke or Pepsi display at the front of the store?  Most of the time, they have the price of the soda bottles on top of a
tube.  These are called display tubes.

Display tubes are used for a wide variety of projects, creative designs, and applications.  These kind of tube uses range from point-of-purchase display poles, sign holders, product display pedestals, picket signs, to stage sets and more.  If you walk into a Bath and Body Works store across the U.S. this Christmas season, you will see red and white stripe display tubes holding up signs or being used as props.  Those are indeed, high-quality Yazoo Mills paper tubes.  When customers need their tubes fast, they depend on Yazoo Mills, especially during the busy, hustle and bustle holiday season.

Yazoo offers a wide variety of custom capabilities fit to each customer’s specifications with no minimum quantities and 48-hour turnaround time, which is the fastest in the industry.  Give us a call today at 1-800-242-5216 to get ahead of your competition.

Last year, we partnered up with GRIT (formerly known as Moxie), a local full-service marketing, design, and communications agency, to help us create a new creative mailing campaign series that involved postcards and catalogs.  GRIT proposed an idea of taking our core values and bringing them to life within our tubes for the series.  GRIT’s team spent countless hours creating, editing, and perfecting the design and photography of the entire project.  In the end, all of their hard work paid off and landed them a 2016 International Communicator Award in the Print Advertising: Advertising Campaign category.

GRIT says “The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards program, which recognizes and honors creative excellence for communication professionals. The competition receives over 6,000 entries each year from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest awards of its kind. The Communicator Awards honor work that transcends innovation and craft; they are judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, a 600+ member organization of top-tier professionals from various disciplines working for acclaimed media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms.”

The company goes on to say, “Winning this award is a great achievement and attests to our efforts to go above and beyond for our clients,” said Lissa Scott, creative director. “This project is a great example of team collaboration to develop an innovative campaign that will make an impact and achieve the client set goal.”

GRIT’s team constructed a visually impactful direct mail campaign for Yazoo Mills, one of the nation’s leading privately owned manufacturers of high quality paper tubes and cores. Many imaginative projects were presented, carefully utilizing their key products in creative ways to emphasize their differentiators. The chosen campaign was a hand-cut paper-tube diorama, which involved our team designing each visual concept. After painstakingly cutting and assembling each design, a back-lit image was created to feature on Yazoo Mills’ direct mailing pieces.

Here we are, a few days away from Christmas and everyone is out shopping for those last minute gifts for family members and friends.  As customers, we can easily be “roped in” with department store’s advertising ads in the circular or enticed to shop at a store that has interesting display designs that grab our attention.  We are attracted to bright colors, interesting shapes, and of course, a good deal and a good shopping experience.

This year, Target stepped outside of the box and rolled out their pop-up store called Target Wonderland, located in New York City.  This free, family-friendly experience is a 16,000 square foot part-store, part-holiday playground that helps everyone find the perfect gift as well as getting back into the Christmas spirit.

Most people are familiar with our tubes for their main purposes of mailing & shipping tubes along with tape and label cores.  However, our company manufacturers paper tubes and cores for many different markets.  With the help of a Design and Production company, Yazoo Mills was able to contribute to Target’s Wonderland set by manufacturing all different sizes of solid red vista gloss covers, solid white litho covers, and red and white “candy cane” covered paper tubes.  Our custom paper tubes helped add a design element to the store’s display front as it is very abstract and modern, grabbing people’s attention.  Target’s Wonderland pop-up store has received a lot attention and was even featured on Good Morning America!

Let’s face it, we all are a collector of some sort of item.  Whether it be refrigerator magnets from all of the places that we have traveled, coins ranging from various years, or old antiques, we all have a collection of something that we are proud of.  No matter what the collection is, you find yourself treating the items very delicately, especially when you go to sell them as they might be worth something in future.

At Yazoo Mills, we have a lot of customers whose collection of choice are original vintage movie posters from decades ago.  Certain vintage movie posters are a hot commodity and don’t necessarily come with the cheapest price tag either.  When collectors buy vintage posters online, they need to be reassured that their prints will arrive in pristine condition; the exact condition in which they bought it in.  We realize the value that these posters hold, which is why our heavy-duty mailing tubes are the perfect choice to keep the prints safe from being bent or ripped during the process of delivery.

We put our tubes to the test.  Our heavy-duty tubes are designed for durability and can withstand the rigors of handling by today’s carriers and insure that your valuables arrive at their final destination undamaged.  Poster collectors do not need to worry when their high-priced vintage prints are being shipped in a Yazoo heavy-duty tube.

We can cater to your needs.  We stock 63 sizes of heavy-duty kraft mailing tubes that are available for same-day shipment and we specialize in custom sizes, too.  Give us a call today to find out why customers put their trust in us.

       

Have you ever needed just one single item from a company but your purchase didn’t meet the minimum requirements so you had to buy more than what you needed?  We understand that everyone has different needs and that the order quantity will vary from customer to customer.  Did you know that we have no minimum requirements on our products?  Whether you need a single tube, a box full, or a truckload, we’ve got you covered.
