Cardboard Storage Tubes

Cardboard Storage TubesCustom Paper Tubes has over 30 years of experience designing and manufacturing paper tube based specialty packaging solutions for a wide range of industries from cosmetics and personal care to food and POP displays.   Although many of our customers associate Custom Paper Tubes with packaging, the uses for our cardboard tubes are as diverse as our customer base itself.  This case study highlights just one of the non-packaging applications for cardboard tubes:  storage.

The customer profiled in this case study is a wine connoisseur with a vast collection of wines from many of the world’s finest vineyards.  This customer struggled to find standard wine racks to store unusual size wine bottles in his wine cellar because most racks are made to accommodate standard size 750 ml bottles.  With minimal space required, paper tube based wine racks can accommodate virtually any size bottle from minis to magnums. 

Building wine storage racks with our paper tubes is an extremely cost effective and flexible solution.  This customer was able to purchase cardboard tubes to accommodate the available rack length and height, as well as the number of odd sized bottles in his collection.  Because the cardboard tubes are light and easy to reconfigure, the customer can also add additional cardboard tubes to the wine rack as his storage requirements change over time.

Custom Paper Tubes offers open end cardboard tubes in a wide range of size configurations:

  • 1/8” I.D. to 5” I.D.
  • Wall thicknesses up to 1/8”
  • Tube lengths to customer requirements
