Why choose a paper tube instead of a traditional folding carton?

Paper tubes offer several advantages over traditional folding cartons. Paper tubes are more durable than folding cartons and are able to withstand pressure and weight, making them ideal for packaging heavy items. Paper tubes are made from recycled paper, making them a more sustainable packaging option compared to folding cartons made from virgin materials. Paper tubes can be made in custom sizes and can be printed with custom designs, making them a more versatile option for packaging. Paper tubes provide excellent protection for items due to their cylinder shape, which minimizes the risk of damage during transit. In conclusion, paper tubes offer a combination of durability, sustainability, versatility, protection, and cost-effectiveness that make them a great alternative to traditional folding cartons.

1. Stand out and Attract attention

The luxury paper tube features a floral pattern with shiny gold accents. This type of decoration can be achieved using a printing process called CMYK printing. CMYK stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, which are the four colors used in this printing process. By combining these colors in different proportions, it is possible to create a wide range of different colors and shades. In this case, the floral pattern and gold accents are likely achieved by printing the design using CMYK printing and then adding hot foil-stamped gold and black details to add a shiny, metallic finish.

2. Paper Tubes House Many Types of Products

Paperboard is not only used for secondary packaging, but is also increasingly popular for primary packaging, such as palettes and paper tubes. Paperboard is a versatile material that can be easily molded into different shapes and sizes, making it well-suited for use as a primary packaging material. It is also sturdy and protective, ensuring that the product inside is kept safe during transport and handling. Additionally, paperboard is environmentally friendly and can be easily recycled, making it a sustainable choice for primary packaging. These factors make it an attractive option for a variety of different types of products.

4. Replacing Plastic Parts with Paper

Some packaging designs use mixed materials or decorations that can make the packaging difficult to recycle. This is a common issue with packaging made from multiple materials, such as cardboard and plastic, or packaging that uses non-recyclable decorations, such as glitter or foil. Beauty brands are becoming increasingly aware of this issue and are moving toward paperboard-only designs in order to create packaging that is fully recyclable and more sustainable. By using paperboard as the sole material for their packaging, beauty brands can ensure that their packaging is environmentally friendly and can be easily recycled. While it’s true that paperboard cartons are often 100% recyclable, the protective inserts are often required for fragile items, such as glass fragrance bottles. These inserts are typically made from plastic, which is a non-recyclable material. In order to create more sustainable packaging, it is important to find alternative materials that can be used for protective inserts. Some options might include using recycled or biodegradable materials, such as recycled paper or cornstarch-based plastics. By using these alternative materials, it is possible to create packaging that is fully recyclable and more environmentally friendly.

5. Eco-Conscious Decorations

Our factory has a lot of experience in helping beauty brands create sustainable packaging that is also visually appealing. Using custom colors and finishes, and incorporating post-consumer fiber into the packaging design, can help ensure that the packaging is an integral part of the product’s overall look and feel. These strategies can also help brands meet their sustainability goals without sacrificing aesthetics.
Our factory is staying at the forefront of sustainable packaging technology by offering innovative materials and substrates that are both decorative and eco-friendly. The use of FSC-certified 100% recyclable metallized paperboard as a plastic-free alternative to metallized polyester board is a great example of this. Specialty treatments like embossing and debossing can also add a luxurious touch to packaging without the use of plastic, making them a valuable option for beauty brands looking to reduce their environmental impact.
