One of our more niche range of products that we currently supply is our range of postal tubes, also known as mailing tubes or postal mailing tubes. The use of postal tubes has made a huge impact for many businesses that need to package up items that can be rolled such as a map, blueprints or posters. Mailing tubes are a suitable way to send your A4, A3, A2 or even B2 sized items that also require a reliable and secure protection whilst in transit. Postal tubes are light in design which means both individuals and businesses can save a significant amount when it comes to postage costs.

So the question is could your business benefit from using postal tubes? Well keep reading and decide for yourself.

Round Postal Tubes

What are round postal tubes?

Not everything can be easily packed and fitted into a nice rectangle postal box. Documents, maps and posters for example simply are not suited for anything other than a long thin postal tube. As such postal tube packaging supplies are great for packing, storing and shipping these items which range from posters to oversized documents to even engineering parts - basically anything that is long and thin. They come in a vast variety of shapes and sizes, including some triangular ones that can be stacked for easier storage. Postal Tubes offer a safe and secure way to contain items, keeping dust, dirt and moisture out. All of our cardboard postal tubes are supplied with a white polyethylene end cap which will fit tightly to ensure the contents remain secure whilst in transit to your customers.

What are the benefits of mailing bags?

Safe & Secure

Cardboard tubes are very safe and secure for sending and storing delicate items such as oversized documents, posters and maps. With plastic tops that fit flush, postal tubes are a tough packaging supply that will ensure maximum protection when in the courier network.

Reduce Shipping-related Costs

You will save on shipping charges when using mailing tubes. Shopping out documents is quite expensive due to the size and the folders and/or envelopes that are required to send them. If you compared the total costs, you will find that using postal tubes is more cost effective for sending your items.


Mailing postal tubes are also versatile and can be used in more ways than you may think. Although they are typically used for sending paper based products like posters, you can also use them to send engineer parts or anything else that is long, thin and fits into the postal tube.

Could Postal Tubes Benefit You?

When it comes to meeting your specific packaging needs, our postal tubes are perfect when looking for a cost-effective, easy to implement packaging solution to send your long objects. But most importantly, postal tubes offer more convenience and can save you money in a lot of different aspects within your business. If your business sends items such as clothes or toys, then obviously a postal tube is not what you need. However should you send posters, magazines or even some books then a postal tube could well be for you.
