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.

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.
