Custom Printed Telescopic Tubes

Our telescopic cardboard tubes feature an openable sliding design. The base is a slightly smaller diameter so the lid can slide over the base. The reason why these tubes are so popular within our range is their ability to separate branding from important information – what do we mean by this? 

Due to the lid being able to slide over the base you can brand the lid beautifully and then add important information (eg. nutritional value, usage information etc) to the base which is revealed once the lid is removed.
