Custom Printed Cardboard Tube

Cardboard tubes are a fantastic eco-friendly alternative to plastic packaging. Our custom paper tube packaging is crafted from 100% recycled Kraft paperboard material. We start by rolling and bonding this material into various diameter paper cores. These cores are carefully selected, and we cut them to the precise length according to your specific request. The cylindrical shape of our paper tubes offers several advantages. It makes them a natural choice for packaging items like glass bottles and non-foldable items such as posters and maps. So, not only are you choosing an environmentally friendly option, but you’re also getting packaging that’s perfectly suited to your needs.

As experienced custom cardboard tube manufacturer, We offer extra customization for the cardboard tubes inside. For cosmetic tubes, such as balm tubes, deodorant containers, salve packaging tubes, these tubes and paper jars inside will be constructed with an oil-resistant paper barrier. If your product is Tea, Grain, or Cereals that Put directly into the paper tube, these paper tubes inside should be laminated Food Grade Aluminum Foil liner.
