Tape types explained – Vinyl v Polypropylene

We generally print on one of the following two types of tape, both of which are ideal for sealing boxes and packages.


(PVC) tape

  • This type of tape is superior in tack and strength to polypropylene tape.
  • Vinyl tape has the benefit of releasing quietly from the roll.
  • It is strong and can 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.
  • If a Vinyl tape is selected, we can offer variants such as heavy duty or low tack tape.


(Polypropylene) tape

  • This is a great budget alternative to a vinyl tape.
  • It is also a strong and efficient packing tape, although noisier when releasing from the roll.
  • Polypropylene tape is better used with a hand-held tape dispenser which will cut the tape more efficiently than by hand.
  • Tape dispensers can be picked up for as little as £5.35 in our online packing shop.
