A mailing tube or poster tube is the best way to protect contents and ensure they stay free of wrinkles, tear or folds. Due to their thick, protective, cylindrical cardboard construction and metal or plastic snap-on end caps, they are used to ship rolled up paper such as posters and artwork, architectural drawings, blueprints, banners and promotional materials. They can also be used to transport or mail small cloth bolts and long thin objects. Crafters, hobbyists and others often find new and creative uses poster tubes such as for storage, gardening, and other applications. Products vary by length, color, wall thickness and other consideration. If you’re mailing breakable test tubes, you’ll want to use laboratory mailers, and if you’re mailing other types of fragile items choose padded shipping envelopes.
