Paper Tubes. It’s what we do.
Last year, we set out to educate as many people as possible by launching our Knowledge Base.
We had noticed that many of our clients, packaging distributors, curious minds, builders, crafters, retail shop owners, tape and label makers, printers, freight companies, artists, architects, poster companies, etc. all seemed to be asking us the same questions.
Although paper tubes are structurally the same (they all look like a toilet paper tube, with a twirling seam), they’re used in a variety of applications. And depending on how the paper tube was being used, we were able to predict what questions might be asked by somebody in that field.
For that reason, we created our Knowledge Base – a collection of paper tube-specific articles, Q&As, and other helpful information.
For example, an artist who designs and ships custom posters on Etsy will have questions specifically related to packing and shipping poster tubes.
3 Common Mailing Tube Questions:
- When both plastic end plugs are inserted, how much does each Mailing Tube weigh?
- What size Mailing Tube should I use for my poster?
- What’s the difference between “overall length” and “outside diameter” and “inside length” and “inside diameter?”
Another example is a tape or label manufacturer. Instead of using a plain kraft brown paper core, they may want their company logo printed on the inside. Their product will be wrapped around the outside of the paper core, leaving valuable real estate on the inside. Their questions about printing will be completely different than the artist selling posters on Etsy.
4 Common Printing Questions:
- Can you print our logo in a specific color?
- What’s the difference between Pantone colors and GCMI colors?
- Will our ink color look best on kraft brown paper or flat white paper?
- What file type and size do we need to send?
These questions are just two examples of the types of questions we regularly receive. If you’d like to learn more about paper tubes, take a stroll around our Knowledge Base.
You may already be familiar with many of the Knowledge Base topics. But then again, you may walk away with a greater understanding of paper tubes.
