How to Package Maps, Charts and Drawings With Shipping Tubes
Some merchandise is simply not meant to be shipped in boxes. Anything printed on large flat sheets of paper, from engineering drawings to artwork, must either be folded, which results in creases that may be unacceptable, or packaged in something other than envelopes or boxes. While a very few pieces will have to be shipped flat because of the undesirability of curl from rolling, this is undesirable because of the expense of sandwiching the flat sheet between two protective layers. The most economical way to ship such materials while preserving the image is to roll the sheets and pack them in an appropriate mailing tube.
Mailing tubes come in many forms. Simple round tubes with plastic end caps come in white, colors or the natural color of Kraft paper. Similar tubes can be had without caps, meant to be closed by crimping the ends. Tubes come in telescoping form to suit items of varying lengths, or square or triangular cross sections for special applications. For very large and dense document sets or those printed on heavy paper, special heavy duty tubes are available.
Mailing tubes are a necessity for firms dealing in document reproduction or the sale of art or other paper or fabric sheets. To order exactly the right tubes for your company, consult with the expert staff at ESupplyStore.com by email or phone. They can help you determine which tube would be best for your application and help design a deal to get you the best price.
