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.

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.

Textiles – they are all around us.  Maybe you’ve never heard that specific term being used but the clothing you are currently wearing, the canopy you sit under while enjoying a nice dinner outside by the river, the curtains hanging in your living room, the cloth interior seats in your car, protective clothing… they are all a part of the textile industry. 

So, what exactly is it?  A textile is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibers, weaved or knitted together.  Textiles are made from many materials including animal, plant, mineral and synthetic – all of which are made in various strengths and degrees of durability, depending on the industry the material is serving.  For example, fabric is a huge part of our lives and without it, we wouldn’t have our basic, necessary items that we depend on day in and day out. 

The extensive use of paper cores in the textile industry is a driving factor in the growing demand for more products to be produced. At Yazoo, we recognize just how important our process is in the textile industry as material will need to be wound onto a core.  Having the correct tools for your respective jobs is imperative to the success of your end-product and bottom line.  Our 100% recycled paper cores are a key component when it comes to rewinding material, which is a process that demands a consistent outside diameter to ensure the material winds evenly.  In our manufacturing process, we produce paper cores with the strength and consistency that provides the best ROI in your converting operations.  Yazoo’s paper cores are designed to fit your specifications for maximum strength to ensure optimum performance, reduce downtime and increase productivity.

We offer a wide variety of value-added, custom capabilities such as colored parchments, embossed outer wraps and core notching (just to name a few) that many of our customers in the textile industry are utilizing; which is helping them stay ahead of their competition. We also offer 110+ sizes of paper cores in-stock and ready to ship the same day if the order is placed by 4pm EST. Our speed to market and high-quality products are just two of the many reasons why we remain the industry leader for paper tubes and cores.
