Quality is a word we are all very familiar with. A word that can prove many different meanings and be portrayed in many different fashions. Companies leverage their marketing efforts around the word ‘quality’ but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a part of their actual process. Today’s world is filled with endless varieties of products available with many companies vying for your money, so you may be wondering whether or not quality still matters and the answer is… YES, 100% YES.

We don’t just talk about quality here at Yazoo. We live, breathe and manufacture it. We have a reputation for high-quality products that are manufactured to each customer’s specifications. Our highly-skilled team works together, day in and day out, to find innovative ways to manufacture our products more efficiently, while maintaining a top-notch level of quality.

Regardless of what industry you’re in, customers aren’t going to choose you solely based on price but rather on quality. Consumers expect Yazoo to deliver on our promise of manufacturing high-quality paper tubes and cores and as a team, we always exceed that expectation. We provide a high-level of confidence with every order that leaves our manufacturing floor.

Managing quality effectively is a crucial part to being a successful business. That’s just one reason why Yazoo has remained an industry leader for over 119 years.

     

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!

This is been a great debate for many decades.  It’s a very simple concept that is taught to us throughout our years but it can also be a controversial as well.  This very simple concept can be applied in every day life and changes for all types of circumstances.  For example, if you’re going through a fast food drive-thru, you’re more likely concerned about quantity versus quality… how many items can you get for a small amount of money?  Whereas at a restaurant, you’ll most likely be more concerned about the quality of the food you are receiving.

In today’s competitive world, a lot of companies “claim” to have quality products when in reality, they are more focused on pumping out a high quantity of products in a short amount of time.  This typically results in lower quality work that’s hiding behind a product that a company manufactured by cutting corners and it marketing it as a “quality” product.

When it comes to Yazoo and our 100% recycled paper tubes and cores, quality most definitely trumps quantity.  Quality has been a part of our fabric for decades and we have over 15,000 customers to prove it!  We have spent an abundance of time, research and money into creating a high-quality product that has led our company to be an industry leader as well as taking our customers to the next level.  Our skilled employees make sure that companies are getting exactly what they order as our products are made to fit your specifications.  When customers order our paper tubes and cores, they are getting so much more than just a first-class product.  Yazoo’s products give excellent satisfaction in knowing that they are going to be paying once and will be pleased with the end-result, compared to spending money again and again and again on a low-quality product from the competitors.

A few take aways – quality should always remain a priority for companies.  A quality product that works effectively based on little quantity will take you far in the long run.  You can have an abundance of paper cores from the “other guys” but if they are manufactured cheaply and not reliable, it doesn’t matter how much you have.  Do not sacrifice quality, as it’ll end up costing you more down the road.
