looking for german word

i am wanting to get some very small postal tubes. the size that would fit a rolled up A4 page in it. Any body know what they are called? I tried postal rühre but that did not work. I tried the post office as well as stationary stores but nobody seems to have or know exactly what i am looking for. I only seem to get the very very large ones. Any help??

Re: looking for german word

Wouldn't it be "eine Kartonröhre" ? - I am not aware of some special description otherwise...

I think you may have been asking for a disturbed document
