Create stand-out packaging with your brand’s logo or design custom printed on water-activated paper tape. A fast and effective way to deliver a great first impression.
Our gummed paper packing tape is made with your choice of 60mm wide natural kraft or white paper, with your design printed as single colour (black) print. The tape is backed with a water-activated vegetable-based adhesive, and is designed for sealing cartons up to 15kg in weight.
To activate the tape, use the included sponge or a water-activated tape dispenser [see our available dispensers here]. Provided in rolls of 90m. Not suitable for use on coated or glossy surfaces.
See here for production times.
Please ensure your artwork meets the below specifications. After you place an order we'll send you a digital artwork proof for you to approve. We won't produce anything where we anticipate an issue with production, and will contact you if any problems with your artwork.
- Original vector artwork [saved as ai, eps or pdf] will provide the best result, and is preferred. Alternatively, please supply your design in a high-resolution image file format [e.g. jpg or png that is at least 500px wide or high]
- If you're providing a vector file, please ensure all fonts are converted to outlines before you upload.
- Provide your design in single colour [black only].
- Avoid submitting screenshots, photographs or very small or pixelated images, and keep your file size to a maximum of 5mb [so we don't break the internet!]
- For best results, keep your design very simple, with bold lines and high contrast between black and white.
- Avoid very small negative space areas within printed areas as ink bleed may occur.
- Allow for a maximum of 20% ink coverage in any one section of tape [i.e. only 20% of the tape should contain printed area].
- Maximum message length 250mm [including gaps between each repeat].
- Here’s a template for designing your tape using Adobe Illustrator. Please use this for any layout more complicated than simple repeated image or logo, as we're not able to offer a design service.
- You must own the rights, or have permission to reproduce the image you upload.
