Mailing Tubes and Shipping Tubes. Made in America.

In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, supply chains and supply lines are being interrupted like never before.

The American shipping and packaging industry is no different.

We manufacture shipping tubes, mailing tubes, and poster tubes in Los Angeles and ship LTL and small packages nationwide.

Our spiral paper tubes are made with recycled paper (mostly old cardboard boxes) and are the preferred way to ship posters, artwork, and various components that are too long to ship inside a cardboard box.

Paper Dowel Sleeves – Manufactured in California

spiralpaper.com

We manufacture two main products for construction: round concrete form tubes (aka sonotubes) and paper dowel sleeves.

Round concrete form tubes are used to create columns you’ve probably seen a million times in a parking garage. Paper dowel sleeves are used to do the exact opposite.

Paper dowel sleeves are used to create a void or empty space inside the concrete. Need to run a rod or cables through the concrete? Use a paper dowel sleeve.

Paper dowel sleeves are spiral paper tubes, made the same way a toilet paper tube or paper towel tube is made, only paper dowel sleeves are made to fit your particular project.

Made in the USA

Since our first paper tube came off the line in 1949, we’ve been in Los Angeles, California.

Now, more than ever, we’re proud to manufacture paper tubes and edge protectors in our own backyard. For the past few months, supply chains around the world have been affected, disrupted, and, for some, have come to a screeching halt.

If your supply chain has been disrupted, and you’re looking for an alternate source for Mailing Tubes, Paper Cores, Edge Protectors, Fiber Cans & Telescope Tubes, Concrete Form Tubes, Specialty/Custom Paper Tubes, Litho Display Poles, or Small Paper Tubes, we’re here to help.

Call us anytime with the inside diameter, outside diameter, usable length, overall length, thickness, and any other details, and we’ll get you going.

Don’t have the specs? No worries. Send us a sample of what you’re currently using – we’ll measure the sample and duplicate it.

We’re here for you.

Order online today and select your preferred shipping. It’s that easy.

Covid-19 Coronavirus Update

America’s manufacturing companies have been jolted by the coronavirus pandemic. We are no different.

Because our paper tubes support a variety of supply chains, we’re considered essential. As a toilet paper tube manufacturer, we’ve seen a rapid increase in need over the past two weeks.

To source paper tubes faster (many American companies buy their paper tubes from China), domestic manufacturers have been contacting us.

To support America’s supply chain, we’re doing all we can to produce as many paper tubes as possible, as quickly as possible.

If you too are looking for a domestic manufacturer of spiral paper tubes, please call our customer support directly at (562) 801-9705. We look forward to supporting you as you support our country.

Green tubes for St. Patrick’s Day?

St. Patrick’s Day is March 17, 2020

With St. Patty’s Day two weeks way, you have just enough time to order your custom green tubes for your event or party.

Some of the most common options for custom paper tubes are to use custom colors, or adding a 1-color print (just like a rubber stamp) to the outside and/or inside of the paper tube.

Adding a color or a 1-color print enhances the look of the mailing tube and helps it really stand out.
