How To Design The Packaging Size Of Paper Tube


In the field of product packaging, the size of the paper tube is more important than you might think. Customers often worry about finding the perfect size for their products, and rightfully so. A miscalculation can result in products and paper tubes that are not the right size, or even damaged by hazards and bumps during transportation. Here is a practical guide to help you determine the ideal size for your paper tube.


A Crucial Starting Point


The inner diameter of a paper tube sets the stage for a seamless packaging experience. Too small and your product can't squeeze inside; too large and the product wobbles inside, jeopardizing safety during transport. The golden rule for sizing paper tube production is to have an inside diameter that is 1 millimeter larger than the maximum outside diameter of your product.


Imagine the feeling of a tight grip - not too tight, not too loose. This ensures just the right fit, allowing your product to slide in effortlessly without compromising its integrity. Whether it's a cup, bottle or other rigid item, this rule of thumb holds true for secure and tailored packaging solutions.


Height considerations are equally important, especially when dealing with taller items such as cups or bottles. A paper tube that is too short may leave your product susceptible to damage, while one that is too tall may result in unnecessary material usage and increased transportation costs.


It is generally recommended that the internal height of the paper tube should be 5 millimeters greater than the height of the product. This ensures the perfect balance of providing ample space for your product without using too much tube, optimizing protection and cost-effectiveness.


Imagine your product nestled snugly in a paper tube that can withstand external forces while remaining an affordable packaging solution. It's a win-win situation.

Customizing for Every Need


Not all products are created equal and they should not be packaged the same. For bulk items such as tea, coffee beans, protein powders, snacks or soft garments such as scarves, a different approach is required.


In such cases, sizing can be customized according to customer preferences and the nature of the product. Flexibility in sizing makes personalization possible, in line with individual style choices. Whether it's a fitted package for delicate fabrics or a comfortable package for gourmet food, customization is key.
