July 11th, 2017

Inner Child Home Fragrances (www.innerchildhome.com), founded by mother-daughter pair Beth and Julia Schillaci, was started after Beth had smelled the scent of the eucalyptus trees from a grove while travelling in Maui. She began to reminisce about what other smells reminded her of places she has traveled, triggering happy memories, which she could share through a custom line of fragrant soy candles. Her goal is to inspire customers to take a break, have fun, unleash creativity and connect with their “inner child.” Even the company logo, based on the Hawaiian legend of Kauila, is a Hawaiian sea turtle “Honu” reflecting the playful nature of the brand.

Inner Child Home reached out to Custom Paper Tubes after being inspired by a paper tube cosmetic package that showed up in their packaging research as the mother-daughter pair were starting up their business.

Vermont Nut Free Hot CocoaVermont Nut Free Chocolates’ mission is to provide delicious, high quality treats for everyone to enjoy, while guaranteeing that everything is 100% peanut and tree nut free, as well as free of cross-contamination with nuts. The company’s founder, Gail Elvidge, started the company out of frustration for finding peanut and tree nut free products for her son, who has a severe peanut allergy. There were no safe chocolate products on the market that had not been cross-contaminated with nuts, so she brought to life a company that provides allergy safe, all peanut and tree nut free treats, such as granola bars, chocolate bars, and high-end truffles for those with food allergies.

Rugged metal ends and heavy wall on full telescope containers provide critical protection

February 15th, 2013

The Moody TubeIn 1987 Bob Moody, a paramedic with a local EMS unit, came to Custom Paper Tubes with a problem. He had experienced a needle stick from a used syringe while making a routine service run and was told by a hospital physician that it would take a year to determine whether that needle stick would result in his developing AIDS or some other serious disease.

Bob asked Custom Paper Tubes to work with him to develop a container that would fit into the drug box used by paramedics to collect all the items used on a service run. We designed a 4” x 8” full telescope container with metal ends that can be taped shut and disposed of in the burn box when the ambulance returns to a hospital. Read the rest of this entry »

Rugged, Industrial Packaging Keeps Weld Rods Protected in Harsh Environments

December 6th, 2012

Weld rods (welding electrodes), used primarily in the petrochemical and power generation industries, come in a variety of metal alloys and sizes, most often with special flux coatings containing various minerals to impart specific welding characteristics. Weld rods need to be protected under the harsh environments the industries endure, such as high heat, pressure and moisture, because of their somewhat fragile nature.

Custom Paper Tubes manufactures industrial packaging to protect weld rods, not only in shipping and storage, but most importantly out in the field. The paper containers are usually made with poly laminated or Mylar paper without water-based adhesives. This special paper exterior provides a barrier that prevents moisture from getting into the container that can cause porosity in the flux, which can then become brittle and break off. The special deep draw, heavy duty metal ends allow for a high weight tolerance (up to 30Ibs) and are less prone to denting from an impact, reducing potential damage to the wire. The industrial strength walls of the containers are also resistant to permanent denting, protecting the wire inside.

Custom Paper Tubes produces special industrial packaging for primarily TIG and electrode wire. There are nine tube diameter sizes available so electrodes of different sizes and densities fit snugly into each specific diameter container. Full telescoping, ring-and-plug and poly rod packs are the most common types of industrial containers because of their durability. Besides the deep draw metal ends, other heavy duty end closures available are plastic caps and plugs. Custom Paper Tubes also offers one color online printing, directly onto the spiral wrap, to allow for quick and easy private labeling. Read the rest of this entry »
