4 Steps to Make a Paper Tube


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…

Real reviews from real customers

Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 12.47.16 PM

We’re a growing company. We have come a long way from the 1949 days of creating Invoices with a pencil and paper and “snail mailing” them out to clients.

We like technology here at Spiral Paper Tube and try to incorporate what makes the most sense for our paper tube manufacturing business.

Thanks to the Internet, customers needing our products are able to find us simply by using a search engine…gone are the days of the big, heavy yellow pages. Because of this, we are continually meeting new people and are able to work with new customers. In ongoing conversations with newer clients, when asked what we can do to improve our service, the feedback is consistent:


Give us reviews to read so we can see what your other customers are saying. We found you online, so we don’t know you, but if we were able to read some reviews, we would be more inclined to trust you with our business.

Mailing Tubes, Poster Tubes, Cardboard Tubes



I recently received an important document in the mail. This document represented many hours totaling over two years of my life. I had poured my heart and soul into those hours, and in the end I received nothing more than a piece of thick paper wrapped in a mailing package with my name on the label. Yet, that paper meant everything to me. It was the symbol that represented a great challenge that I overcame and achieved. That paper was my degree from graduate school where I received my Master of Science in Education with a 4.0 GPA.
