The perfect formula for props?  High school + fall play + set design = Yazoo tubes.

Spring Grove High School, a local school in our surrounding community, was in need of some materials for their fall play called Midsummer Jersey.  Yazoo donated six tubes and the students involved in the play turned them into trees as a part of the set design.

The play was a take on William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” that takes place on the Jersey Shore.  Claire Shubert, director of the fall play, chose Midsummer Jersey and later found out that it was written by a York County native, Ken Ludwig.  She said “the students wanted a comedy and I wanted something linked to Shakespeare, so the play fit perfectly.”

Shubert also picked the play so students could learn more about Shakespeare and the 1960’s, the era the play is revolved around.  The play ran from November 18-20, 2016 and
each performance presented a packed house with laughter bouncing off of the walls.

Last year, we partnered up with GRIT (formerly known as Moxie), a local full-service marketing, design, and communications agency, to help us create a new creative mailing campaign series that involved postcards and catalogs.  GRIT proposed an idea of taking our core values and bringing them to life within our tubes for the series.  GRIT’s team spent countless hours creating, editing, and perfecting the design and photography of the entire project.  In the end, all of their hard work paid off and landed them a 2016 International Communicator Award in the Print Advertising: Advertising Campaign category.

GRIT says “The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards program, which recognizes and honors creative excellence for communication professionals. The competition receives over 6,000 entries each year from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest awards of its kind. The Communicator Awards honor work that transcends innovation and craft; they are judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, a 600+ member organization of top-tier professionals from various disciplines working for acclaimed media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms.”

The company goes on to say, “Winning this award is a great achievement and attests to our efforts to go above and beyond for our clients,” said Lissa Scott, creative director. “This project is a great example of team collaboration to develop an innovative campaign that will make an impact and achieve the client set goal.”

GRIT’s team constructed a visually impactful direct mail campaign for Yazoo Mills, one of the nation’s leading privately owned manufacturers of high quality paper tubes and cores. Many imaginative projects were presented, carefully utilizing their key products in creative ways to emphasize their differentiators. The chosen campaign was a hand-cut paper-tube diorama, which involved our team designing each visual concept. After painstakingly cutting and assembling each design, a back-lit image was created to feature on Yazoo Mills’ direct mailing pieces.

Here we are, a few days away from Christmas and everyone is out shopping for those last minute gifts for family members and friends.  As customers, we can easily be “roped in” with department store’s advertising ads in the circular or enticed to shop at a store that has interesting display designs that grab our attention.  We are attracted to bright colors, interesting shapes, and of course, a good deal and a good shopping experience.

This year, Target stepped outside of the box and rolled out their pop-up store called Target Wonderland, located in New York City.  This free, family-friendly experience is a 16,000 square foot part-store, part-holiday playground that helps everyone find the perfect gift as well as getting back into the Christmas spirit.

Most people are familiar with our tubes for their main purposes of mailing & shipping tubes along with tape and label cores.  However, our company manufacturers paper tubes and cores for many different markets.  With the help of a Design and Production company, Yazoo Mills was able to contribute to Target’s Wonderland set by manufacturing all different sizes of solid red vista gloss covers, solid white litho covers, and red and white “candy cane” covered paper tubes.  Our custom paper tubes helped add a design element to the store’s display front as it is very abstract and modern, grabbing people’s attention.  Target’s Wonderland pop-up store has received a lot attention and was even featured on Good Morning America!

We are proud to have our business located in the wonderful town of New Oxford, Pennsylvania for the past 35 years.  There is plenty of history behind our quaint little town and our community is working hard to help preserve some of the historical buildings so the generations to come can learn about the important past of New Oxford.

Located on a roughly 1-acre property in New Oxford, sits the borough’s 102-year-old train station, complete with a red caboose, an old mail car and even a still-operating CSX rail line.  This railroad station has produced many stories that have been passed down over the years through previous employees and the large amount of volunteers.  Pieces of the train station’s history are what’s important to the community members and volunteers.  In order to ensure that the station is around for future generations means buying the property it sits on from its current owner, CSX.  The downfall is, it’s going to cost $40,000 to purchase.

The New Oxford Area Historical Society created the All Aboard! campaign in June of 2014.  The society, in conjunction with the Borough of New Oxford, has undertaken a community campaign to raise funds to purchase the Borough’s beloved history railroad property.

Yazoo Mills has been a huge supporter of many fundraising events in New Oxford for a very long time.  We recognize how important the historic train station is to the community, which is why we donated $1,000 to the All Aboard! campaign.  With our contribution, as well as many other local companies, the campaign is nearing close to their goal of $40,000.  We are proud to support the campaign and excited to watch them continue to preserve the train station.

Let’s face it, we all are a collector of some sort of item.  Whether it be refrigerator magnets from all of the places that we have traveled, coins ranging from various years, or old antiques, we all have a collection of something that we are proud of.  No matter what the collection is, you find yourself treating the items very delicately, especially when you go to sell them as they might be worth something in future.

At Yazoo Mills, we have a lot of customers whose collection of choice are original vintage movie posters from decades ago.  Certain vintage movie posters are a hot commodity and don’t necessarily come with the cheapest price tag either.  When collectors buy vintage posters online, they need to be reassured that their prints will arrive in pristine condition; the exact condition in which they bought it in.  We realize the value that these posters hold, which is why our heavy-duty mailing tubes are the perfect choice to keep the prints safe from being bent or ripped during the process of delivery.

We put our tubes to the test.  Our heavy-duty tubes are designed for durability and can withstand the rigors of handling by today’s carriers and insure that your valuables arrive at their final destination undamaged.  Poster collectors do not need to worry when their high-priced vintage prints are being shipped in a Yazoo heavy-duty tube.

We can cater to your needs.  We stock 63 sizes of heavy-duty kraft mailing tubes that are available for same-day shipment and we specialize in custom sizes, too.  Give us a call today to find out why customers put their trust in us.

       

Have you ever needed just one single item from a company but your purchase didn’t meet the minimum requirements so you had to buy more than what you needed?  We understand that everyone has different needs and that the order quantity will vary from customer to customer.  Did you know that we have no minimum requirements on our products?  Whether you need a single tube, a box full, or a truckload, we’ve got you covered.

Over 15,000 customers nationwide depend on Yazoo’s 100% recycled paperboard products.  We can accommodate the needs to all types of companies, big or small.  We put our customers first.  Our premium quality paper tubes and cores are made to each customer’s specifications and are shipped in 48-hours or less, guaranteed.  In addition to our no minimum requirements, Yazoo also offer same-day shipment on stock paper tube and core orders.

       

There are plenty of manufacturers in this industry that claim to have products in-stock and ready to ship at all times.  It seems that in most circumstances, the manufacturer can’t stay consistent with the quality and quantity of the products that they are offering.  That’s where our company comes into play.

At Yazoo Mills, we take paper tubes and cores seriously.  It’s our passion, our expertise.  We’re committed to helping our customers make the best selections for their specific paper tube and core needs, especially when they need our products fast in order to stay ahead of their competition.  This is why we have created one of the largest stock programs in the industry, our Tubes in Time® and Cores in Time® programs.

Our Tubes in Time® program has 95 sizes of tubes ranging from Heavy-Duty Kraft Mailing Tubes, Heavy-Duty White Mailing Tubes, Light-Duty Handout Mailing Tubes, Multi-Pak Mailing Tubes, Adjustable Shipping Tubes, and Snap-Seal Mailing Tubes.  Our Cores in Time® program has 103 sizes of 3” I.D. and 6” I.D. cores for a variety of industries including tape, label, paper, textiles, film, flexible packaging, and many others.

Both programs combined have over 1.5 million products in-stock and ready to ship at all times, guaranteed.  Same-day shipment is available for customers who place their orders by 4pm EST.  Companies that require quality, consistency, and ongoing reliability contact Yazoo Mills for all of their needs.
