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.

Customer Review – 4 Element Lifestyle

January 7th, 2016

Thank you, Howard, for the kind words regarding our food grade paper cap packaging for your teas.

Howard Walsdorf of 4 Element Lifestyle wrote:

I’ve been wanting to let you guys know how nice the 4 Element Tea canisters came out – got side-tracked along the way.  The tops are perfectly sized – which I was concerned about back yonder.  They seem to remain well sized even after many uses…I figure it’s never too late to say, “good job”; so thanks. I hope to eventually need to order more canisters.  Happy New Years to you and your staff.

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.

Recyclable Shaker Top Containers Allow for Easy Application of All-Natural Dry Pet Shampoo

November 25th, 2013

Holcombe OrganicsHolcombe Organics created FurRefresh out of necessity in an animal rescue environment. The condition of which the animals were arriving was a growing concern, and most were too traumatized to bathe without risking personal harm. Also, a good, chemical-free dry shampoo was nearly impossible to find in retail stores. This lead Holcombe Organics to develop FurRefresh — a dry shampoo made with culinary ingredients that could be licked by the animals without harm. It also cleans, conditions and brightens fur, calms itchy skin and repels insects.

Holcombe Organics came to Custom Paper Tubes to produce cost-effective and eco-friendly shaker top containers that would allow for easy application of the all-natural, dry pet shampoo. Read the rest of this entry »
