Custom Labeling Solutions

Show off your brand and add retail appeal with custom labeled paper tubes and containers. Whether you are a startup or a large corporation, Custom Paper Tubes offers several labeling options that will make your paper tubes and containers stand out from the competition.

Adhesive and Convolute Labels

Adhesive Labels

We recommend application of adhesive sticker labels for low volume production runs less than 5,000 units, or for multiple flavor flexibility. Adhesive labels can be applied over one of our Stock Colored Outer Wraps. Adhesive sticker labels are available in a variety of paper stocks and finishes. We can save you time and resources by applying the adhesive labels to your container order for you.

Convoluted Labels

Professional convoluted labels and printed discs from our printing partners are applied in production with a food grade glue. They provide complete coverage of container from top to bottom with a straight, vertical seam on one side of the tubes. We recommend convoluted labels on projects with quantity 5,000 units or greater. They add high-end, retail shelf and customer appeal.

Paper stock typically used for the convolute label strips is 80# Sterling Ultra C1S White Litho, unless otherwise specified, and they are printed with eco-friendly soy based inks in up to 6 colors and include scratch-resistant aqueous coating. Convoluted labels may also include special processes such as embossing, gloss UV, metallic ink, foil stamping or specific PMS colors. Our account managers will be happy to assist you in building the perfect paper tube container to meet your needs.

Inline Printing

Inline printing is a one-color logo or text printed repeatedly on one of our stock spiral outer wraps, as the tubes are being wound. This simple printing technique is typically used on industrial product packaging, but provides a unique look for any application.

Label Layout Guidelines

Custom Paper Tubes provides label layout guidelines to all customers requiring labeled packaging. The label layout schematics are sized to fit your specific package and label need, and are provided to-scale for straightforward integration of artwork in Adobe Illustrator. Simply set up your press-ready artwork within the specifications provided, send to us and we'll do the rest.

Upload your press-ready artwork via FTP.

Let Us Design Your Label

We provide expert, in-house graphic design services to customers who are looking for fully designed retail quality packaging. Rather than using an outside designer or agency who is not familiar with round paper tube packaging, let our experts help you. We are able to enhance or update existing label designs, as well as design original, professional label artwork that will make your product stand out from the competition on the retail shelf.

Our design service fee includes up to 4 hours of graphic design work, with any additional hours charged at a reduced hourly rate. Contact your account manager for details or to schedule a consultation with our artists.
