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!

       

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.

          

Our mailing tubes are spirally wound and made from 100% recycled paperboard, the perfect combination for protecting your products during shipment.  Yazoo offers a variety of stock sizes to choose from or have your paper tubes custom-made to fit your specifications.

When purchasing mailing tubes, you’ll also want to consider which end plug you’ll want to ensure maximum protection.  We have a large selection of plastic and metal end plugs, in stock and ready for same-day shipment.  Our plastic end plugs have a rigid design with an easy-pull finger tab.  Plastic end plugs are great for reusing the mailing tubes time and time again!  Yazoo’s heavy-duty metal end plugs are self-locking and do not require tape to secure the ends.  Metal end plugs are designed to hold heavy objects, parts, etc. from pushing the plug open.

No tape? No plug? No problem!  Another option to choose from is Yazoo’s Snap-Seal tubes that do not require any form of end plug as the crimped ends act as closures.  These type of tubes are ideal for mailing inexpensive, lightweight or fulfillment items such as posters, blueprints, giveaway items, etc.
