This Scotch packaging tape is strong and reliable. It comes on an easy to use dispensing roll that you can use to cut the tape. This roll is clear - you could tape over a label or anything else that needs to be visible. This is a fairly long roll, so it should last for awhile even if you mail packages fairly often. The only drawback on this tape is that it's not cheap - if you are looking to cut cost and don't need the tape to be extra strong then you could look for a generic brand of packaging tape, as Scotch quality yields a premium price.
This tape really is strong, reliable, thick, and doesn't get stuck on itself or stick back to the roll. It's my favorite tape when I'm trying to close a cardboard box for shipping or packing. Great tape, good dispenser.
I regularly sell books on amazon and other products online and shipping can be a pain if you're working with horrid tape. I've tried at least four different sizes and 'dispensers' and this is by far the simplest and easiest to use, the size is perfect, and the tape itself is excellent. Recently, I sent a large package with some dozen books, the tape held up great and I can easily say I'll be purchasing some in the near future when I run out.
The title pretty much sums it up. While more pricy than the low-end tape, I find the stronger tapes to be a better value since you don't need to use as much, and you don't waste any due to the tape not coming off the roller or not being cut cleanly. This tape is also crystal clear, so no problems taping over address labels without obscuring the writing. Also works great to remove cat hair from suits!
Scotch(R) Packaging Tape is super strong for your heaviest packages. The dispenser ensures the tape will not fall back on the roll and the tape has an easy unwind. Ideal for moving and package sealing. Meets U.S. postal regulations for standard packages.
