Paper tape is a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional vinyl or polypropylene tape. We stock self-adhesive paper packing tape, which is just as quick and easy to use as conventional tape and will adhere to all carton surfaces, including 100% recycled box paper.

Our brown paper tape comes in either 60gsm or 70gsm paper. As an added benefit, it can be used with a standard 2″ tape dispenser to make your packing operations that little bit easier.

If you’re a company striving to be kind to the environment, ditch the vinyl tape and give our paper tape a go.

What Features Does Our 48mm x 50m Eco Paper Tape Have?

60gsm Paper Tape: Our 60gsm self-adhesive paper tape is our best-selling value option; it’s ideal for sealing boxes and using on picture frame backings. It’s pliable in or around corners and sticks very well to itself. This is a great general-purpose self-adhesive Kraft paper tape.

70gsm Paper Tape: This is thicker than our 60gsm tape; it has a higher initial tack and a premium waxed finish. As with our other tape, it also sticks very well to itself, ensuring corners do not need to be mitred. This is a high-quality self-adhesive tape for all packing operations; it’s also popular for canvas finishing and will cover staples.

Custom Printed 48mm x 50m Eco Paper Tape

Paper tape is straightforward to customise and is a great addition to any plain shipping or postal box. For quantities of 144 rolls and over, you can get your paper tape custom printed.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
