Custom Keepsake, Protector Tubes for Graduation Diplomas

July 14th, 2014

Diploma TubesCustom Paper Tubes manufactures a variety of different diploma tube styles for schools and universities across the nation. The diploma tubes range from single tubes with metal or plastic plug enclosures to 2- or 3-piece telescoping tubes with seamed metal or paper curl-and-disc enclosures. We provide a range of options for printing and labeling to give the keepsake tubes a special look.

One of the printing solutions we offer is a 1-color inline, repeating spiral print on one of our stock color outer wraps. An example of this is shown in the photo where the particular University seal is printed, in a repeated spiral patter, in Pantone Reflex Blue on a white glaze litho outer wrap. This is done by printing the image from a flexo plate as the tube is being wound. For a higher end look, also shown in the photo, is a convolute label printed with metallic foil stamp. Other special processes, such as embossing, metallic ink or UV coating, are also popular to enhance the look of the tubes.
