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.

Two container sizes were developed; a sample size and a full size. Both container sizes have a friction fit talc shaker top and food grade foil inside as a moisture barrier for the powder.
