Useful Hint: Economy tapes may look to be the cheapest option but if you are sealing medium to heavy weight boxes you will end up using alot and this will add to the overall packaging cost.

The more expensive tapes such as the Eco Brown Paper Tape and Vinyl Tape will need far less strips to securely seal the box. The cheaper acrylic tapes do not perform well in heat and cold so bare this mind when choosing your tape.
