When placing an order for any desired product, you find yourself anxiously awaiting its arrival on your door step, almost like Christmas time. During the waiting period, you question if your package will ever make it to your house (especially in today’s world… if you know, you know!), if it will be on time (the struggle is real) and the most important question of all – will it be damaged? Chances are, the packaging material used for shipping your purchase wasn’t strong enough and received some dents from not being packaged and/or handled properly. That’s where Yazoo Mills’ expertise and strong shipping tubes come into play, giving you peace of mind and your products protection!

At Yazoo, we take great pride in making sure we meet our customer’s paper tube requirements. We recognize that one size does not fit all, which is why we offer high-quality and extremely durable packaging and protection tubes made to fit each customer’s specifications. Our protection tubes are generally used to slip over expensive parts, threads, cylinders and other sensitive items to protect them during shipment. Our packaging tubes are commonly used to ship steel, aluminum, tooling, banners, vehicle parts, construction materials and much more.

No order is too big or too small for our company. We offer no minimums and ship orders within 48-hours; the fastest in the industry. With over 350 tooling options available and a wide variety of finishes, the possibilities are almost endless with Yazoo’s packaging and protection tubes.

Now, more than ever, paper cores play an essential role to many businesses across the world. Cores are the starting point for industries such as health care/pharmaceutical, flexible packaging, tape and label, government support, textiles, printing/graphics, converters and many more. While some might not realize the value paper cores contribute, something so trivial can impact your operations – because without a core, companies wouldn’t be able to convert their material – leaving us without tape, labels, packaging, etc.

Businesses are adjusting to the ever-changing conditions in today’s world and some are even shifting their focus to help battle the extreme shortage of products, causing them to step in and step up to fill numerous voids. For example, distilleries are switching from making their beloved spirits to utilizing their tools and operations to manufacture hand sanitizer.  This causes a need for labels to be mass produced as their main product has changed. Our speed-to-market has certainly helped out an abundance of companies who have shifted their regular production to manufacture essential products. Our customers have a huge advantage as Yazoo has the fastest turnaround times in the industry, allowing businesses to be able to mass produce without ever getting low on inventory, expanding their ROI exponentially.

Yazoo’s stock core program of over 3 million paper cores in-stock at all times is allowing essential businesses to maintain their production at full-capacity. Being focused on the customer experience has been a part of our fabric for decades.  At Yazoo, we work for you. We are constantly engaging with our customers to help them find easier ways to ramp up their production with our innovative solutions. Our team of highly-skilled employees work hard to continue supporting your operations and deliver products that exceed your expectations.

   

You stumble upon a company through your Google keyword search – what’s the first thing you do?  For most people, they check out their customer service, ratings and the feedback that actual (not robot-generated) customers have to say about the brand. Do you take this into consideration before you add items to your cart and check out?

Customer service is great and it’s even greater when you can find a company that couples it with an awesome customer experience.  You may not be familiar with customer experience (CX) as some companies don’t hone in on it.  The CX is the total journey of a customer’s interactions with a brand.  It measures how a customer feels about a company overall and includes an emotional, physical and psychological connection customers have with a brand.  It’s not a one-time interaction – it includes the entire customer lifespan and every interaction a customer has with a product and service.

At Yazoo Mills, our business is successful because we advocate for our customers and deliver value to them.  Our knowledgeable Sales Department takes the time to listen and learn what our customer’s needs and goals are.  Our team introduces innovative products to businesses to help them solve problems and simultaneously achieve their business goals.

Customer success, service and experience is a big part of our culture here at Yazoo and has been for over 117 years.  It is critically important to us that our customer’s goals are met and exceeded through our products and services. All of our departments work together to ensure that our customers are successful. Here are some of the few things you will experience when you put your trust in Yazoo:

Focusing on our customers’ experiences is essential to our team and allows us to continue to make decisions with the success of our customers in mind. When you’re looking for a brand you can trust, look no further than Yazoo Mills.

Labels – whether big or small, they are all around us providing information about the product or object they are attached to.  When you think of a label, your mind might quickly go to the shampoo bottle in your shower where it describes the scent or a ready-to-eat salad bowl you bought at the grocery store, listing all of the ingredients included in the package.

Labels surround us more than what we think and play a HUGE role into getting the consumer interested in the product and making a purchase.  Take for example, the craft beer business has exploded over the past few years, making it a thriving market for label printers.  The supply and demand of producing labels for new releases of beers has created a great opportunity for the label industry.  Brands are finding innovative ways to incorporate designs to help their company stand out as well as create a connection to social which then creates a customer experience that draws them in.

Consumers are really starting to pay more attention to labels as they have evolved into works of art.  Think about the last time you stood in a beer distributor and looked at all of the creative labels – you might not drink a certain kind of beer but because you saw a cool design that sparked your interest, maybe you bought it any way.  The best way to set yourself a part from the competition is to create a memorable label.

Label companies across the nation rely on Yazoo’s 100% recycled paper cores to help keep business booming. Yazoo covers 90% of the label market as our cores are the starting point to getting jobs completed. We are all about the customer experience which is why we are continuously helping companies save time and money by offering no minimums and fast speed to market with 48-hour turnaround times.

Our stock core program is the perfect fit for the label industry.  Our durable, high-quality paper cores are manufactured to maximize your processes, allowing you to convert more labels as well as improve your ROI.  We stock over 110 sizes of 3” and 6” I.D. that are available for same-day shipment if ordered by 4pm EST.  Yazoo’s stock cores allow companies to start their production immediately upon receiving their order as they are already cut down to the size needed.  In addition, we also offer a full range of sizes, made to fit your specifications and custom capabilities to keep you ahead of your competition.
