    Mailing tubes are cylindrical cardboard tubes used for mailing large or oddly-shaped items. Users often seal the tubes with caps at each end, and these capped ends may have one or more openings to facilitate inserting the item to be mailed and removing air from the tube. Then, users can insert the tubes into envelopes and send them through preferred postal systems. The tube itself protects the contents from bending or crushing during transit. People commonly use these tubes to mail posters, artwork, blueprints, large maps, and other oversized documents.

    At BlueRose Packaging, we provide custom shipping tubes, cylindrical containers crafted from durable cardboard, designed to safely mail large or irregularly-shaped items.

    How to Choose the Right Mailing Tube for Your Application

    Mailing tubes offer versatile and reliable packaging solutions for cylindrical items. However, that doesn’t mean one size will work for all. If not chosen carefully, the material stored inside may not receive full protection and could become damaged during transit. The following are certain pointers to keep in mind when choosing these mailing tubes for your applications.

    • Type of Material: Each material used for building a mailing tube has its own benefits and disadvantages. So, be careful while choosing the material. If you are considering the tubes for fragile items, ensure to choose the material that offers maximum protection and comes with internal padded wall. Kraft material is ideal for shipping all types of documents. However, if you are considering sensitive documents then machine glazed material can be the best option.
    • Weight of Item Being Shipped: When choosing a mailing tube, it’s crucial to consider the mailing weight as one of the important factors. If the tube is unable to hold the item then it will break easily. Again, the material should be chosen to avoid adding to the higher total weight. So, be careful about this consideration. Our experts will help you understand the benefits of each of the material and their weight bearing capabilities.
    • Dimensions of Item Being Shipped: To ensure that the item to be shipped fits properly in the tube, measure the dimensions of the item being sent. If you are planning to use the tube for sending some odd shaped items then measure the length, diameter, and so on.
