FAQ

What are some common uses of paper tube packaging?

Paper cans (or postal tubes) are typically used for holding posters, bottles and anything else that can fit inside a long, narrow cylinder. You can also use them to ship coffee, tea, sweets, shirts or other light-weight textiles.

Note: While Paper Cans are technically food-friendly as they don’t include a print inside, most food transport standards require food products to be packed in another layer of packaging before they are put inside a Paper Can.

Can you print inside a Paper Can?

No, we do not offer to print inside our Paper cans/ Postal tubes. The product is cylindrical in design and the internal area isn’t visible enough to warrant any design.
