    Here you will have access to the very latest guides relating to packaging and associated topics All of the content available on this area of the site has been developed with our broad range of packaging customers in mind If you would like us to create additional guides in this section then contact us to make a suggestion Posted by Lauren Sutton on 07 02 2014 Back to all articles Postal tubes an online retailers guide In an age when everything is digital the rise of online retailers was inevitable People are buying and selling at a rate that does not seem to be slowing down For web retailers packaging is a key consideration when thinking about giving the best experience for their customers Postal tubes are becoming an increasingly popular packaging option and should not be overlooked when investing in packaging supplies What to put in them Postal tubes can be used for any number of things particularly if they are large and slightly flexible Although lots of items can be squashed into regular envelopes and parcels postal tubes have the added benefit that they don t necessarily have to have their items squashed into them They are ideal for items like posters maps and important documents Essentially anything paper related can and should be sent in a postal tube One of the more difficult things to send is a poster Any large paper or thin card item can be difficult to post while keeping it protected and in pristine condition Postal services and delivery drivers don t treat everything as if it is made of glass and technically paper and card are not fragile items It s also worth bearing in mind that having an important document like a certificate sent in an envelope will be useless if the dog gets to the post before the owner and turns it into his new chew toy How to pack them It s all well and good having a postal tube to protect delicate items but there s little point in having one if the products aren t packaged in it correctly Rolling posters maps or anything else is the easiest way to fit the items into the tube Roll them slightly smaller than the tube giving them room to expand and loosen up slightly once they re inside This will stop any creases and ensures the ends don t get dog eared when trying to slide the products in For added protection rolling the items around a wooden spool first will reinforce them keeping them sandwiched between two pieces of card and restricting any movement in transit Ensure one of the ends of the tube is completely secured before putting anything inside it If items fall out of the other end it costs more time On top of that trying to put a lid onto something that doesn t quite fit runs the risk of tearing the edges of the item particularly if it s thin paper Finally affix
