Is it possible to make a brown paper tube look good? Yes!
Paper canisters are spiral paper tubes, wrapped with custom graphics, with a top and a weight-bearing base.
This “buy WHY doesn’t money grow on trees?” example (picture above) is what we refer to as Style 1A. It’s a beautiful way to package your product without using a boring square box.
This canister is made up of three separate tubes. The first is the “top,” seen on the right, leaning against the base. The top has a permanent metal end, similar to what you’d see on a Pringles canister.
The brown paper tube is called the “neck.” The top fits right over the neck. The neck fits snugly into the base, and gets glued into place. When the top is placed onto the base, the neck is completely hidden. Depending on preference and budget, the neck can also be made with all flat white paper to give it a clean, retail look.
The base matches the look of the top, but is much taller than the top to ensure stability when placed on a shelf. The base also has a permanent metal end. The metal ends we use are all silver in appearance.
We’ve tried gold and other colors, but our process scratches the finish. So, we stick to silver.
