Posters are a great way to decorate a room, promote a business or an event, or simply express oneself. However, shipping them can be a challenge. Rolled posters are usually shipped in postal tubes to prevent them from getting damaged during transit. Package Mate offers the German made Colompack self-sealing postal tube boxes that are easy to use and provide reliable protection. In this blog post, we will guide you on how to ship a poster in a self-sealing Colompack postal tube box.
Step 1: Prepare the poster
Before rolling your poster, make sure it is clean and dry. Remove any creases or folds if possible. If your poster has a glossy finish, be careful not to scratch or damage it while rolling. If your poster is thick or inflexible, you may want to gently roll it in the opposite direction first to loosen it up.
Step 2: Roll the poster
Roll your poster tightly from one end to the other, starting at the bottom. Make sure it is straight and smooth.
Step 3: Secure the poster
Once your poster is rolled, use clear tape or rubber bands to secure it in place. Be careful not to tape the poster directly as it may damage the paper or ink. Instead, tape the ends of the poster to the rolled part. This will prevent it from unrolling and shifting during transit.
Step 4: Insert the poster in the Colompack postal tube box
Insert the rolled and secured poster in the Colompack postal tube box. The self-sealing feature of the box will make it easy to close and seal the tube. Make sure the poster is centred in the tube and not touching the edges. You can cushion it with our paper void fillers.
Step 5: Seal the Colompack postal tube box
To seal the Colompack postal tube box, remove the protective strip from the hot melted glue line. Press the flap down firmly to create a tight seal. You don't need to use additional tape.
Step 6: Label and address the Colompack postal tube box
Label the Colompack postal tube box with the recipient's name and address, as well as your return address. Use a bold and clear font to ensure the label is legible. You may also want to add "fragile" or "handle with care" labels to indicate that the contents are delicate and need special attention.
Shipping a poster can be easy and stress-free with the right tools and techniques. The Colompack self-sealing postal tube box provides a reliable and convenient solution for shipping rolled posters. By following the steps outlined above, you can ensure that your poster arrives at its destination safely and in excellent condition.
