Over the last few weeks we have talked about the tapes available
to buy from Packaging Supplies, so this week we will take a look at the tape machines and
dispensers that are
also available online.
Tape machines and dispensers will make the application of taping
more efficient. Depending on the type of tape you are using or the
application you may want to use one of the following:
Hand Held Tape
Gun – Hand held tape
guns are great for quick and efficient sealing of cardboard boxes and other
parcels. They are used with vinyl or
polypropylene tape and can be purchased for use with either a 2” or 3” width
Case Sealer – The
semi-automatic case sealer is for using with machine applied tape. It
will seal the top and the bottom of uniformed sized boxes simultaneously,
speeding up your packing process.
Tape Dispenser – Floor
marking tape dispensers will allow you to clearly mark out walkways or areas of
storage within a warehouse environment. Using a floor marking tape
dispenser will mean areas can be marked out using straight lines quickly and
with minimum effort.
Tape Dispenser – A
tape dispenser specifically designed to use with Bonus tape. The silent
bonus tape dispenser will reduce noise during dispensing. In addition the
tape tension can be increased on release by the adjustable brake.
All of the above can be purchased through our online shop, however
many more items are available by contacting Packaging Supplies Ltd.
Custom made printed tapes, with a company logo are a very popular choice for many business. Parcels arriving with your company logo on is a great tool to promote and re-enforce your company brand and an inexpensive way to get your company name and logo onto your packaging. Tapes can be printed with up to 3 colours on a white or clear background. Printed tapes can be produced with Vinyl, Acrylic, Hot Melt or Solvent.
If you are looking for a bespoke printed tape with your own wording or company logo, please contact Packaging Supplies for prices based on your own design. Alternatively you will find standard popular printed tapes in our online shop.

Machine Applied Tape
Double Sided Tape
You can buy a variety of tapes from Packaging Supplies through our
online shop, here is a little about our most popular packing / warehouse tapes.
Both vinyl and polypropylene tapes are ideal
for sealing boxes and packages for storage or transportation.
Vinyl (PVC) tape is superior in tack and
strength to polypropylene tape. The vinyl tape also has the benefit of
releasing quietly from the roll. Even though vinyl tape is strong it has
the ability to be ripped easily by hand from the roll to the desired
length. This makes it suitable for using with or without a hand held tape
dispenser. Vinyl tape has a long lasting adhesion and can be used on all
types of paper or cardboard surfaces.
Tape is a great budget
alternative to vinyl. It is also a strong and efficient packing tape,
although noisier when releasing from the roll. Polypropylene tape is also
better used with a hand held tape dispenser which will cut the tape more
efficiently than by hand.
Packaging Supplies also stock a low noise polypropylene
tape. This tape releases with low noise properties similar to vinyl tape
but is lower in cost. It effectively seals most items securely for
