When you purchase tape to ship your products, one of the first things you’ll ask is “Will this keep my packaging secure during shipping?”
But you should consider other questions too. How should you store your tape? What if your product will spend weeks or months in a stock room or warehouse? What type of tape will stick to my packaging best? How strong a tape do I need? Does width matter?
Here are a few of the factors you should consider about packaging tape:

Why use custom shipping tape?
Cost Savings – Custom tape is less expensive when compared to printed boxes.
Space Considerations – Custom tape can be ordered in small quantities and take up less space to store. Custom boxes require large minimum purchases and use up large areas of storage space in warehouses.
Serves multiple purposes – Custom tape seals your packages, improves security and advertises and markets your brand all at once. Boxes can’t do all of that!
Versatility – What you choose to print on your custom tape can include logos and company names, contact information, QR codes or special handling instructions. And if you want to change the look of the tape it is so easy to have a new tape design created.
Security – Using a custom shipping tape makes it more obvious that a box has been tampered with, reducing the odds that something will happen to your shipments.
What to consider when ordering custom packing tape?
Type of tape and strength needed – Consider what you are shipping and the weight of your shipments.
Length – We offer hand-held rolls that fit on a hand-held dispenser or 1000 yard machine rolls for industrial settings.
Width – How wide you want your tape to be can be influenced by the weight of the shipments and the grip strength you want in your tape.
Tape Color – Custom shipping tape catches the eye so much more than plain tape. We offer a range of colors depending on the type of tape you need.
Number of Inks – We offer 11 standard colors plus the ability to print custom PMS colors. Having this range of color helps bring your custom packing tape to life.
