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!

Sweet summertime – ahh… the season that (most) people look forward to. Sun, warm temperatures, vacations, break from school, etc. But the heat and humidity that summer brings can be a game changer when it comes to paper products.

As the temperature in the air increases, so does its ability to retain moisture. When humidity levels increase, the fibers in the paper draw in moisture very quickly, resulting in expansion. For example, think about the doors in your house and how they seem to stick during the summertime. That’s because of materials expanding due to the humidity. The same happens with paper tubes and cores.

During summertime conditions, paper tubes and cores manufactured in high humidity can shrink drastically if an end-user puts them into an air-conditioned room with extremely low humidity. Humidity can weaken the tubes and cores which will then cause them to fail. If used in a timely manner, less moisture will affect the product. Paper tubes and cores should not be stored near any type of heating or cooling unit, in an air stream of heated or cooled air or in the path of a humidifying stream of air. Knowing your storage environment is very critical.

Understanding how moisture and humidity affects paper tubes and cores is imperative for end-users as they are looking for the products to have the best appearance and performance. To ensure optimum performance, control the relative humidity (R.H.) levels and temperature in the processing and storage environments.

       

Over the years, we all have acquired a lot of stuff.  More stuff than we would like but finding a place for said stuff can be hard, especially when you need to protect certain items from the elements.  Whether you’re storing things in a storage unit, garage, or shed, Yazoo’s paper tubes have your items covered, literally.

Storing items such as carpet remnants, butt rolls of finished goods, rugs, posters/artwork, and much more can be kept safe and protected when stored in a paper tube.  The spiral casing of a paper tube helps keep items in tact rather than packing it in a box where objects can move around and become damaged.  Plus, paper tubes aren’t as big and bulky as boxes so they don’t take up as much room, either.  Yazoo’s plastic end caps help furthermore protect items from slipping out of the paper tube and help keep the tube enclosed, protecting objects from the elements.

If you’re looking to store artwork/prints, you’ll want to purchase paper tubes that contain liners as this is a solution that can help resist environmental conditions such as humidity.  Liners are extra added protection to make sure that nothing touches your precious pieces of art.  Our paper tubes can be as big as 20″ inside diameter and up to 52′ long.  Whatever your needs are, we have you covered.
