Manufacturing these types of tubes involves wrapping a piece of custom printed stock paper (or any label material preferred). These labels are not able to be printed directly onto the tubes. The process in making this involves the use of an automatic paper tube labeling machine where the label will be loaded on feed rollers and these will be rolled and pressed against the tubes to make them adhere together. Different materials for the paper stocks and adhesives will be used according to the required applications of the label tubes (e.g. food-grade materials for foods and oil-resistant coatings for industrial type tubes). Generally, these are coated with scratch-resistant films to improve quality and long-term usage. Additional finishing processes will occasionally be needed depending on the manufacturer or customer requirements, such as foil stamping, embossing, metallic inking, and gloss UV spotting.

A superior advantage of label tubes would be their added durability due to the wrapped labeling materials and adhesives. These work great on concealing the porosity in an ordinary cardboard tube, thereby making it usable for parts packaging and storage. Furthermore, customers seek out this type of tube on account of its freedom of customization where they can choose from a wide variety of paper tube types. Customers are able to choose what labeling media or material is perfect for them (Litho paper, Gloss type, foil, and fluorescent paper), and mostly because they can customize their prints however they like. In addition to external enhancements, these types of tubes may be lined internally to improve their water-resistance, make it grease-proof, and adapt for food grade storage.

Label tubes are aesthetically pleasing and practical ways of packaging and storing products both on the consumer side and enterprise side. On the consumer side, these types of tubes are seen as canisters for food, apparel, wine bottles, perfume bottles, towels, candles, cleaning kits, and many more. On the enterprise side, these may be coated with resin type materials to make a package for high-end tools and industrial-grade products.
