Established in 2013, our purpose was to introduce an alternative to the traditional. Paper Tube Co. founder, David needed a packaging solution for his own product. He sought unique, eco-friendly packaging that could double up as a shipping container, landing on the paper tube. After an unsuccessful attempt to find a local company that met his high quality specification, but low quantity needs, he decided to manufacture tubes of his own. He knew there must be others just like him who needed blank tubes quickly but couldn’t afford high premiums and equally high minimum order quantity.
Starting with fully recyclable tubes in three sizes and three color options, the Paper Tube Co. was born. Stock tubes eventually lead us into the custom market, attracting small and large companies who needed luxury packaging that stood out on retail shelves. Embracing change and adapting, we jumped in with both feet. Today, we offer both ready-made and custom-manufactured tube packaging, with our reach proudly spanning from start-ups and product inventors to major marketing agencies and global consumer brands.
Our growing team of research and development, design, engineering, marketing, customer service, and sales support staff is located in the US, right outside of Chicago. Our dedicated manufacturing facilities are located in the PRC, with physical quality control, supply chain, and production planning staff on the factory floor daily. This structure enables us to keep your costs low and ensure that our packaging always meet our clients’ time and quality expectations.
We help you design, engineer, and manufacture custom paper tubes that are built from scratch, eco-friendly, and uniquely yours. And we’re here to guide you through the entire process, so you can focus on your product launch, be it a handmade bath bomb, vegan caramels, luxury soy candles, fair trade coffee, organic face serum, or a Humboldt-grown CBD extract. Command attention worthy of your brand.
