Custom Keepsake, Protector Tubes for Graduation Diplomas

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.

Eco-Friendly Shaker Top Packaging for Food Grade, Crawling Insect Killer

December 18th, 2013

SCRAM Crawling Insect KillerSCRAM Crawling Insect Killer was developed by a commercial property owner who wanted a non-toxic insect pest-control method, rather than using the highly toxic products currently on the market that pose health risks to tenants and their pets. SCRAM is an all-natural powder, containing fossilized silica from the remains of tiny marine creatures, that is food grade and safe for people and pets. It kills bugs and deodorizes at the same time, without the harmful residue poisonous chemicals can create or leave behind.

Gartland Properties, creators of SCRAM, came to Custom Paper Tubes for cost-effective and eco-friendly shaker top packaging for the all-natural powder. 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.
