Advantages of Paper Tubes
Cylindrical Storage Spaces
Items like documents, posters, maps, and artworks are not meant to be folded. Some items are fragile and valuable, and a fold crease might hamper their value and credibility. A custom paper tube offers the best means of packaging and storing these items.
Sustainable and Eco-friendly
Made from completely biodegradable substances, paper tubes do not contribute to the enormous plastic non-biodegradable waste that clogs the oceans and threatens aquatic life. Paper tubes can also be recycled and reused, making them environmentally friendly.
Ease of Printing, Branding, and Customization
It is far easier to print on paper than any other material – be it glass, plastic, or metal. Paper tubes offer a limitless surface area on which you can imprint your brand label or any other custom design.
Lightweight and Very Cost-effective
Paper tubes are very lightweight and durable. They have a better strength-to-weight ratio than other tubes made of plastic or metal. Paper tubes are also the most economical option – saving costs on the shipping because of their light weight and avoiding future purchases since they are recyclable.
Optimum Protection Against The Elements
Paper tubes, especially those made with heavy-duty cardboard paper and lined with interior waterproof sealing layers, are usually opaque and non-transparent. And as such, they protect the stored items from light, moisture, and humidity.
