What is Paper Packaging Tape?

Paper tapes are essentially tapes that are eco friendly because they are composed of paper  and not polypropylene or vinyl. All of our paper tapes are water resistant and work extremely well in humid conditions making it a great choice if you export worldwide.

We can customise our paper tapes, printing on paper tapes creates a custom printed paper tape which can be printed in up to 3 colours onto a base material, artwork design is free on orders over 50 rolls.

Paper packaging tapes also provide an extra layer of security as they create a tamper evident seal, you can not remove a paper tape without the residue being visible and it is harder to replace paper tapes when compared to a plain or brown tape that are easily available.

We provide 3 types of paper packaging tape our most popular being self adhesive paper packaging tape which leaves a neat finish and is a very popular choice for quickly sealing packages.

We also produce gummed paper tape which has extra strength due to its thicker paper and gummed backing, it is water activated and forms a strong permanent seal that if removed, it clearly shows visible signs of product tampering which increases the security element.

For extra strength we provide a reinforced paper tape, ideal for heavier items providing maximum strength, security and stability.

Logo packing tape is essentially a printed adhesive tape that is most commonly used to seal your parcels and boxes. As the name suggests there is a marketing element to it as you can promote your business with each and every delivery of your product.

Why is the minimum order 36 rolls?

To be economical in the way we produce tapes the minimum order is one box of 36 rolls, the set up procedure of the machines and the plate and design checking, boxing, labeling and dispatching orders means the price for 1 roll is the same for 36. We could sell you 1 roll but it would be the same price as 36 rolls so that’s why you see the industry minimum orders range between 36 and 72 rolls.

What is meant by the Origination / Plates cost?

Flexographic printing of packaging tape requires us to manufacture printing plates, this is a “one off bespoke”  process required to successfully print your job. When you re order the exact same tape with us in the future there will be NO plate cost as we will keep the plate in stock for you. We can also waive printing plate costs on orders over 288 rolls.
