3" x 15" Crimped-End Kraft Tubes

Three kraft, Snap Loc mailing tubes

Not all items fit in a traditional box. For products, prints, paperwork, or care package items better suited to a cylindrical package, trust Chicago Mailing Tube Co.'s sturdy shipping tube containers.

We offer our tubes in a variety of sizes, including 3" x 15" self-locking kraft tubes.

Our Tube Uses

The 3" x 15" inch tube offers enough internal space for most documents and many hardware items. This tube size accommodates all of the following:

  • Artwork on paper or medium-weight canvas measuring between 13" and 14" long
  • Hardware, such as curtain rods, with a stored length of 14.5" inches or less
  • Professional documents, such as legal pad-length contracts or informational papers

For your safest mailing, choose a tube that fits your item with between 0.5" and 1.5" of space at either end and 0.5" extra space in diameter. This fit ensures that your items do not shift constantly during shipping, minimizing en route damage, but still gives enough room for your items to be easily removed from the tube upon arrival.
