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.

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!

At some point in your life you have more than likely wrapped a present, painted a room, boxed up a package you were sending to a relative across the world or had to fix a hole in a camping tent.  So, what do all of these actions have in common?  Tape, of course!  Each one of those actions needs tape of some sort to complete.  Whether that is packaging tape, painter’s tape, duct tape or just regular transparent tape.

In 1845, surgeon, Dr. Horace Day, invented tape for the first time.  His type of “tape” was used as bandages for his patients.  In 1925, Richard Drew invented masking tape to help solve the problem of paint bleeding through while shops were applying paint to new vehicles.  In 1942, duct tape was invented during World War II as American soldiers needed a strong and versatile adhesive for everything from repairing broken windows to making temporary bandages.

As you can see, the tape industry has evolved tremendously since its beginning.  Now, there are essentially endless options for consumers to choose from.  The entertainment industry is hugely known for using all types of tape.  Artists rely on their crew to use tape to temporarily hold light fixtures, hold down wire and cable path cords, marking and labeling equipment and using caution tape to mark off areas that should be avoided.  Tape has evolved so much that a wide variety of colors are used to differentiate certain actions, glow-in-the-dark options are available to mark the stage so artists know where to go during each set as well as marking dark areas back stage.  Tape, at some point, is used in every single industry from medical, arts, sports, packaging, automobiles – you name it.  But it takes a high-quality paper core to ensure that it can hold the material that is being converted on to that.  Because without a core, companies wouldn’t be able to convert their material, leaving us tape-less.

That’s where Yazoo comes into play.  We’re recognized as the supplier of choice among all tape companies across the nation.  Tape manufacturers have strict guidelines and rely on Yazoo to meet their specifications.  Our ability to hold a tight tolerance remains very consistent, allowing companies to gang cores together on their slitters which lets them be more efficient with their runs.  At Yazoo, we are proudly proving every day that our products exceed expectation, no matter what industry you’re in.  We deliver innovative solutions to help support your customer’s needs.  See what Yazoo Mills can do for you and your business.
