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.

Cardboard Filter Cartridge For Respiratory Therapy

December 7th, 2011

Filter CartridgeA company selling Pink Himalayan Salt approached Custom Paper Tubes to design and manufacture a salt air inhaler.  The application required a non-metal container with holes in the ends to allow air flow through a filter cartridge.  Die charges for a paper mesh with small holes were prohibitive, leading our design team to suggest plastic netting material which was punched to match the container diameter.  The finished product is a telescoping tube with an elegant, non-printed outer wrap that is filled with Himalayan salt.  A mouthpiece is then added, allowing patients to inhale air channeled through salt for therapeutic benefits.
