Mailing tubes resemble paper towel tubes, only larger. They are ideal for shipping posters or important documents because they are sturdy. Your document is less likely to become wrinkled, creased or ripped in a mailing tube than in a traditional envelope.
Write the recipient’s name and address on a white adhesive label. Write legibly, or it may be undeliverable.
Remove the adhesive label from the backing and affix it to the middle of the mailing tube.
Write your name and address on another white adhesive label. Remove the label from the backing and place it to the left of the recipient’s address.
Take your mailing tube to the post office. They will weigh it and charge you the correct postage.
