So... I switched to Triangle Mailing Tubes a few months ago and have been pretty happy. Not a single one has been crushed or shredded and that has saved me quite a bit of money. Previously, about 1 in 25 tubes would get destroyed and I'd swallow the cost of replacing the poster and re-shipping.
They're slightly more expensive and a bit more time consuming to package but that seems to be worth it in the long run.
But... over xmas, I gave my brother-in-law some posters as a gift and use a triangle tube to carry them on the plane with me. When he opened it and removed the posters I noticed that they were a bit wavey. None of my customers have complained about this yet but I'm worried it's a matter of time until that happens. I'm guessing the solution is to pre-roll with craft paper and tape it secure the roll but then I'm worried that the poster might bounce around inside the box.
Anyone have any experience with this?
