Overview

Adhesive tape was invented in 1845 by a surgeon named Dr. Horace Day, who applied a rubber adhesive to fabric strips to make a surgical tape. Packing tape has been around for a long time, as well, of course.

With so many more people shopping online these days, manufacturers compete to create stronger and more reliable products than ever. The best ones out there are quick-sticking, long-lasting and durable and make it easy to protect shipping labels and seal up packages.

You can buy a packing tape dispenser that holds the tape on a roll. You then pull out the tape, stretch it over the box and cut off the end of the tape with the dispenser’s sharp edge. You can buy rolls of tape in bulk and replace them on the dispenser as needed. Some brands have built-in disposable dispensers, which are more manageable, but these can be more expensive.

For the most part, packing tape is about 2.7 to 2.8 mil thick, from 1.8 inches and 2 inches wide, and is sold in 60-yard rolls. During the holidays, you might want to opt for themed packing tapes like green or red ones that say “Merry Christmas” and so forth. You can probably find different-sized rolls if you need to as well. Most will fit standard tape dispensers that have 3-inch core diameters.

The good thing about using these thicker packing tapes is that you don’t have to use as much tape as you did in the old days. Just make sure the edges of the package are touching, but don’t try to squeeze it closed if there is too much inside. Even though packing tape is strong, there might still be gaps in the package, and you won’t want that if you plan to ship something.
