GET TO KNOW THE VPUF PORTABLE PIPE
What is the VPUF PIPE?
The History of the Vpuf Pipe
The Vpuf can be printed with advertising information and can be used as a business tool to promote products and services. The Vpuf is a cost effective way to promote your business.
The Vpuf is made in the U.S.A. from virgin, food quality paper board with a high-temperature, heat resistant, food quality foil lining, laminated with heat resistant adhesive. When needed, the Vpuf can be assembled and ready to use in less than a minute. It is designed for convenience, but it is also highly functional and comfortable. The design is such that the bowl is insulated from the body so your fingers stay cool, away from the heat. The elevated bowl optimizes air flow.
The Vpuf is durable. It can be used multiple times before being discarded. With a suggested retail price of a dollar, the Vpuf can be discarded when necessary and replaced inexpensively.
To assemble, separate the bowl from the body along a perforated score. Fold the body along four scores (foil on the inside) to create a trapezoidal tube. Remove the tape liner to expose the adhesive, overlap the end panels and press together firmly.
Fold the bowl along each score (foil on the inside) and overlap end panels with flap-less panel on the outside, to create an upside-down pyramid. Insert bowl into triangular opening in the top of the body. As you press the bowl into the body, the adhesive flaps will bend down and hold the bowl securely in place. Fill the bowl with your preferred blend, cover the end with a finger, light and indulge, Vary finger pressure to regulate airflow.
Be ready anytime, in any place, at a moment’s notice for a quick smoke. Never clean and never suffer with a dirty pipe; simply start fresh with a new Vpuf.
Right then and there, as the lightbulb hovered above my head, I cut and bent cardboard, wrapped it in heavy-duty foil and, in the span of twenty minutes, created a working pipe. We even named it that night: Quick Puff.
Many different designs were explored, fabricated and tested, since that first prototype, before we arrived at the current design which met our high standards for durability, integrity and performance.
It took a team of designers, graphic artists, fabricators and production experts twenty months, from that night in my kitchen, to get the Vpuf into production.
Fun fact: the ‘V’ in Vpuf stands for Velox, which is Latin for Quick.
I hope you enjoy the Vpuf as much as we do.
