Hello Lynn,

We posted several A2 size pictures rolled up in a 2 inch section of white poly water pipe. Worked a treat as the plastic is strong and has some flexibility. It weighs about the same as the equivalent cardboard type tube. Short sections, better still off cuts, are really cheap at DIY stores (or free if discarded by your local plumber!)

We've always used the cardboard tubes chucked out by the shops which sell fabrics (curtain, furnishing or dress fabrics etc) or wrapping paper by the metre.Costs nothing :-)

We've even saved (and taped together) the cardboard tubes from kitchen paper if we want something smaller :-)
