Have you ever seen the television show How It’s Made? If you find yourself wondering how things are put together, assembled, or used, you may find it interesting. The format is simple – take a few cameras into a manufacturing facility and capture each step of the process. By showing viewers the manufacturing process, questions are answered before they need to be asked.

The same is true with spiral paper tubes. The more our customers understand about how spiral paper tubes are made, the better service we can provide. Read more…

Custom Paper Canisters – Style 4

Style 4 - Fiber cans and telescope tubes

I am drawn to aesthetic packaging.

I appreciate when packaging is multi-functional, good for the environment, well made, and economically priced. I like a unique style that brings classic fun, and eclectic appeal, that effortlessly blends with my neat and organized lifestyle.
