The Different Types of Cylinder Shipping Tubes

When it comes time to ship important paper documents that are too big for traditional envelopes, the best way to get your items shipped are by using cylinder shipping tubes. These tubes come in a variety of sizes and materials to ensure that no matter what you are shipping, it will arrive safely at its desired location. These cylinders are extremely durable and are each designed to handle a specific type of item. Here are just a few of the uses of the cylinder shipping tube.

Many businesses on eBay who deal with posters use these tubes to ship their products to their customers. Posters have been around for over a century, and many of the older ones are extremely valuable and very sensitive to the elements. They become brittle and if not shipped correctly can become damaged in transit. The cylinder shipping tubes provide poster owners the ability to ship any size poster to anywhere in the world with the utmost confidence that nothing with happen to the precious cargo inside. These tubes are made of a durable plastic that can absorb the bumps of long distance transit and not cause any damage whatsoever to the posters inside. They have been a preferred shipping choice of the top sellers on eBay for over a decade.

There are specific cylinder shipping tubes that are large enough to handle the largest of blueprints and not cause any damage to the paper. These cylinders are telescopic and can expand to the correct sizes needed to allow the paper to sit inside the tubing without causing wrinkles, creases or tears to the paper. Many companies that produce the blueprints and maps purchase an abundance of these tubes to use as storage containers for the products. These items can be very large in size and would simply take up too much space in a filing cabinet or drawer. The cylinder tubes allow the company to safely store all their documents so they can be easily found when the time comes to ship them.

Artist also have found many uses for these shipping tubes. When prints need to be shipped worldwide, it is much safer to have the artwork in a waterproof plastic container that can withstand rough handling.

The ability to store extra prints in the tubes provides more space in the gallery for the artist to work on their other projects.

You can choose from a number of different sized tubes, a variety of colors and either plastic or corrugated cardboard to place your valuable papers in. With these many choices there is certain to be a shipping tube that meets your demands.
