There are many different types of products out there; large products, small products, heavy products and fragile products. And of course in addition to the size and weight of a product, there is the shape of a product. Each type of product will be packaged or shipped in a box. The type of box you choose to package your product in is just as important as the product itself. The box or packaging should enhance to product and protect it. You typically think of a square cardboard box when you think about shipping. Many times the normal cardboard box isn’t a good fit for your product. Perhaps it’s time to think outside that square box and consider a custom tube or canister.
Fiber tubes or canisters are strong boxes. They come in many thicknesses. They hold their shape and can be reused. These containers have metal or plastic ends for added strength and ease of removing the packaged product. The tube can even be designed as a telescoping tube for a high end look. Fiber tubes and canisters can be customized just like square boxes. Colors can be printed on the tube as well as your logo. Tubes and canisters are excellent ways to package promotional items.
A fiber tube is an ideal box to package a map, a photo, artwork or blueprints. The item can be rolled up and slid inside the tube ensuring it will not be creased or wrinkled during shipping. Any item that needs to be stored so there are no creases would best be packaged in a tube. Tubes don’t only have to be used in as a mailing tube. Tubes can also be customized as display boxes. One item that could be showcased in a tube would be a bottle of wine. A bottle of wine in a tube with a high end look will tell the customer you value your product. High end looks for a package, typically translates to a higher quality product to the customer.
