What are the main styles of custom paper tubes?

There are three main styles of custom paper tubes: buttjoint, telescopic and one peice. Each style has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it’s important to choose the right one for your project.

Buttjoint tubes are the most common and versatile type of paper tube. They can be used for a wide variety of applications, from packaging to crafts. Telescopic tubes are offer a unique aesthic with a sliding lid to unveal the contents within. Finally we offer a wide range of one piece tubes with either a plastic or metal lid, used by many industries including alcohol. 

Benefits of a Buttjoint Tube

A buttjoint tube is a type of paper tube that is made by joining the ends of two paper tubes together. This type of tube is often used for packaging products that are sensitive to light or moisture, such as electrical components or medications.

The main advantage of a buttjoint tube is that it provides a completely sealed container for your product. This means that there is less risk of your product getting damaged by moisture or light exposure. Additionally, the seal on a buttjoint tube is very strong, which makes it less likely to leak or burst open than other types of paper tubes.

Benefits of a Telescopic Tube

There are many benefits of opting for a telescopic tube over other types of custom paper tubes. Telescopic tubes are much more space-efficient than other types of tubes, as they can be nested inside one another when not in use. This makes them ideal for storage and transportation purposes.

Telescopic tubes are also typically more durable than other types of custom paper tubes, as they are less likely to be damaged during handling or shipping. The interlocking sections of a telescopic tube also make it less likely to come apart accidentally.

What about a One Peice Tube?

There are a few factors to weigh when deciding if a one piece tube is the right solution for your product. One piece tubes can offer some definite advantages over multi-piece tubes, such as a reduction in assembly time and potentially lower production costs. On the other hand, one piece tubes may not be as strong as multi-piece tubes and they can be more challenging to ship and store.

So, what are the advantages of one piece tubes? First, they can be faster and easier to assemble than multi-piece tubes. One piece tubes also have the potential to be less expensive to produce than their multi-piece counterparts. Additionally, one piece tubes generally have smoother seams and a more polished look than multi-piece tubes.

What are the disadvantages of one piece tubes? As we mentioned above, one piece tubes may not be as strong as multi-piece tubes. They can also be more difficult to ship and store due to their size and shape. Additionally, one piece tubes generally require a higher minimum order quantity than multi-piece tubes.

Which tube is best for my business?

There are many different styles of custom paper tubes, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. It can be difficult to decide which tube is best for your business, but there are some general guidelines that can help you make the decision.

First, consider what kind of products you will be packaging in the tubes. If you are packaging fragile items, you will need a sturdier tube that will not collapse easily. If you need to print on the outside of the tube, choose a material that is compatible with your printing process.

Next, think about how the tube will be used. Will it be exposed to moisture or other harsh conditions? If so, choose a material that can withstand those conditions.

Finally, consider your budget. Paper tubes come in a wide range of prices, so choose the material that fits your budget while still providing the quality and durability you need.
