Using a clear mailing tube to send out a promotional product is a great way to make the product stand out.  Most people have become numb to the standard direct mail envelope and don’t even stop to read the lead in.  With a mailing tube it’s a completely unique shape that very few companies are using and therefore are imeadiately noticed.  Being able to see inside provides a convenient way to investigate what the promotional product is and when done right can draw the customer in, enticing them to look inside.  The variety of sizes of plastic mailing tubes will accommodate many different types of products, so if you’re looking to send free samples, they’re more likely to use it.  On top of all this, the mailing tube provides a symbol of importance; it implies that what was sent out was important and if it’s important then the customer should open it.  If nothing else the mailing tube will be opened and checked out for the re-use potential.

Using mailing tubes will end up saving you both time and money.  The marginal increase in cost of using these plastic mailing tubes will be offset by the increased response rate.  More people will be exposed to the product, evaluate the product and end up using the product because of the mailing tubes.  And as you reach more people you’ll need to send out fewer promotional items which will save you time, but more importantly it will save you money.  Finding a marketing channel that works is worth its weight in gold.

And if you’re looking to gain some momentum by being part of the green revolution, there are several recycled plastic mailing tubes on the market that are every bit as good as the original.  Using recycled mailing tubes will cost a little more, but they offer yet another marketing opportunity, allowing your customer to appreciate your business and business’ ethics by being green.  It’s also a good initiative that will give you and your company something to feel good about.
