    packaging tape 7th Jul 17 at 11:07 AM
    I go through alot of tape..

    Just wondering where you get yours from?

    I have used the cheap crap. Which keeps on taring. And you need to used more than one strip to deal a box. And good quality expensive stuff.

    So I am looking for good value tape. I normally use clear.

    I tend to find brown tape is a bit better. I've wondered if it was just my imagination and they're both the same but it does always seem to be a bit better.
    I use the cheap end stuff, not the totally bobbins ones. I've used more expensive stuff and didn't see the difference or value to it. A few wholesalers I use sell it with no big mark up so I tend to buy some when I go in, saves me having stocks of it taking up space.

    3M clear tape 48mm x 66m is about £1 a roll on ebay if you buy 12 or so.

    Seems like a lot. Unless you're buying bulk I can't see it being worthwhile to buy online. For 12 rolls, the seller is paying 20p
    +/roll postage.

    I can get a pallet of parcel tape for 28p per roll +VAT. How much do you want?

    Put it this way, there's enough there to go about 133 miles with your tape which is from London to Wolverhampton.

    My order with them also came through as branded tape even though I ordered basic polypropelene tape 66M.
    I know they don't always do that however, I was extra lucky.
