Logo Repeat Length
Combine impeccable branding with strength and security. Custom packaging tape ensures that your packages arrive sealed and safe while putting branding front and center at the same time. Each roll is made of white reinforced paper material. Once moistened and applied, the water activated tape will bond to the cardboard box. The synthetic fibers woven inside the tape guarantees strong adhesion and tamper resistance.
Using Water Activated Packaging Tape
On its own, water activated tape or gummed tape won’t stick to anything. Once moistened, the adhesive will bond to the carton’s surface, creating a powerful, durable bond that can endure the rigors of shipping. Since the packaging tape is bonded to the box material, it provides some tamper resistance as well.
For high-volume packaging, we recommend using a dispenser that automatically applies water to the tape. For manual use, here’s a short guide on how you can use water activated tape:
- Measure the length of tape you need to use. Cut using scissors or a box cutter.
- Using a damp sponge, moisten the non-printed side of the tape.
- Carefully apply the packaging tape on the cardboard box, applying pressure as needed.
