Hey! Just wanted to let you know we got our shipment and we LOVE them! They’re going to be perfect! The plug cap is a little hard to get on and off, we may re-visit that next order, but we are very excited to get our teas in them. I’ll send you pics when we get our artwork in!


Custom, Full Telescope Package Protects Glass Bottle and Light Sensitive Product, While Differentiating Brand from Competition

May 10th, 2016

mission-possibleBlack Note came to Custom Paper Tubes for a package solution that not only provides protection to a glass 30mL bottle and the product’s integrity from light, but also distinguishes the Black Note brand as a quality, premium line of e-liquids from an ever-growing sea of e-vapor start-up competitors. Black Note knew a custom designed, paper tube package was the key to standing out, as well as providing the protection needed for the product.

Black Note chose a unique take on the 3-piece telescope, also known as a full telescope, package. The long cap tube allows for a reveal of the product inside the package as it is removed from the base tube. A custom printed disc at the top of the curl-and-disc enclosure on the cap shows off the Black Note brand, while a custom printed sticker label is applied around the outside of the cap, over the matte black spiral outer wrap. The custom printed sticker is made and applied in-house by Black Note, with the option for variable data printing to differentiate and customize the labels for the variety of flavors and nicotine levels available. Black Note offers a range of nicotine levels that encourages smokers to move down through the scales of “notes” from a high nicotine content at a high “Soprano” note to no nicotine at the lowest “Bass” note.

Customer Review – 4 Element Lifestyle

January 7th, 2016

Thank you, Howard, for the kind words regarding our food grade paper cap packaging for your teas.

Howard Walsdorf of 4 Element Lifestyle wrote:

I’ve been wanting to let you guys know how nice the 4 Element Tea canisters came out – got side-tracked along the way.  The tops are perfectly sized – which I was concerned about back yonder.  They seem to remain well sized even after many uses…I figure it’s never too late to say, “good job”; so thanks. I hope to eventually need to order more canisters.  Happy New Years to you and your staff.
