About Our Gummed Paper Tape

Paper tape is a great eco-friendly alternative to traditional vinyl or polypropylene tape. By choosing paper tape, you’re supporting sustainability and projecting a positive image of your brand’s values.

As well as gummed paper tape, we also stock a range of self-adhesive paper tape. Both are as quick and easy to use as conventional tapes and adhere to all carton surfaces, including 100% recycled box paper.

What Features Does Our Gummed Paper Tape Have?

Reinforced with additional fibres: our gummed paper tape is super strong and resistant to tears, which makes it particularly well-suited for heavy shipments or valuable items.

Environmentally-friendly: 100% recyclable, repulpable and biodegradable, our paper gummed tape is the most eco-friendly of our paper tape range.

Powerful seal: You won’t have to worry about boxes coming open during shipping as our gum paper tape has an incredibly strong bond. Simply activate the tape with water and affix it to shipping boxes to form a heavy-duty seal.

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

Custom Printed Gummed Paper Tape

Gummed paper tape is easy to customise and is the perfect way to brighten up plain shipping or postal boxes. For quantities of 144 rolls and over, you can get your tape custom printed with your logo, unique design or slogan.

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.
