A Full Year’s Dry & Store Protection in a Small, Eco-friendly Container

September 23rd, 2013

Dry CaddyDry & Store recognized the need for a portable, travel-size “kit” of Dry & Store products that their customers could pack and take along for short trips and outings. The kit, which includes 1 Dry Caddy jar and 6 Dry Caddy discs to provide a year’s worth of moisture damage protection, needed to be attractive, maintaining the Dry Caddy branding, but be cost-effective and eco-friendly like their product.

Custom Paper Tubes created a single tube with plastic plug ends for Dry Caddy that not only fits the products for the Dry Caddy kit inside perfectly, but can withstand a varying degree of temperatures without warping that most metal or full plastic containers cannot. The convoluted label on the outside of the container is attractive and shows off the Dry Caddy brand. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »


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.
