Postal TubesPostal tubes are cylindrical tubes of cardboard manufactured by winding strips of paper around a central core. They can be used for sending rolled items such as posters and prints, or long thin items such as roller blinds, or metal extrusions. In our postal tube range you'll find strong kraft postal tubes in a range of sizes that can be used for mailing posters, prints, calendars, and other long thin or rolled items. Our range of postal tubes are very strong and sturdy allowing them to be used to post a range of items through royal mail or send via courier. Postal tubes come with plastic end caps to give a sturdy mailing tube. They are also recyclable and the cardboard part is biodegradable as well as using a high level of recycled material so are an eco friendly packaging as well.
How much protection do thin postal tubes offer?Thin postal tubes offer a lot of protection because of their round construction. Even though the cardboard is quite thin the tubular design coupled with solid wall cardboard that is preformed in the tubular shape makes it a very rigid structure that is resistant to crushing. Adding the plastic end caps gives extra crush resistance and strengthens the ends of the tube for one of the strongest mailing packs for rolled items. Cardboard tubes also give a lot of protection to long thin items like metal rods or extruded sections. The rigidity of a cardboard tube makes it ideal for packaging flexible items or long thin products that are susceptible to bending or breaking.
