Staples Packing Tape

Moving, shipping, or storing commercial goods or personal items requires sturdy and secure packaging. Staples® packing tape creates a strong seal that helps maintain the integrity of the box or package and discourages tampering or theft. Plastic and paper sealants handle many different packing and sealing needs and are easy to work with and apply. Take on moving day or a product-delivery challenge with shipping, packing, and mailing supplies from Staples.

Staples Packing Tape Creates a Durable Seal
Shipping containers often face rough handling, bouncy truck rides, and temperature extremes on their journey. These sealants have backings that resist splitting and impact damage. Their adhesives form a tight bond that holds under a broad range of conditions. Heavy-duty products are ideal for moving or shipping bulky materials, and bag-sealing tape secures dust-proof or anti-static bags around sensitive goods. Some Staples packing tape is moisture-resistant and retains its grip at temperatures between -40 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit. It's an excellent choice for long term box storage.

Apply Staples Packing Tape Quickly
Most of these products have a 3-inch core that fits most hand-held dispensers. Rolls are easy to start and dispense smoothly, forming a tight seal along box or container seams. Staples clear packing tape won't obscure shipping labels, tracking bar codes, or printed logos on packaging. Use tinted sealants to color-code box contents in warehouses or storage areas and simplify inventory management.

How Strong Is Staples Packing Tape?
Tensile strength measures how much weight something can support without breaking. Most packing tape has a tensile strength of 25 to 34 pounds per square inch. Some products have fiberglass strands woven into the material. The strands enhance strength and tear resistance.

How Long Is a Roll of Staples Packing Tape?
Most Staples clear packing tape comes in rolls that are 40 to 110 yards long. Rolls this size are easy to handle and can seal dozens of boxes. PVC bag-sealing products are thinner than other materials. Each roll contains up to 180 yards of tape. Rolls of gummed kraft paper tape fit bulk dispensers and hold more than 160 yards of material. Most rolls are 1.88 to 2.75 inches wide, making it easy to close a box seam with a single run of tape.

Should You Choose Paper or Plastic Staples Packing Tape?
Both types of sealant have their advantages. Plastic tape is easy to apply using hand-held dispensers, so users can pack boxes anywhere. Most kraft paper tape has a water-activated adhesive that requires a special applicator. It's ideal for dedicated packing and shipping stations. Paper sealants are also less expensive than plastic tape, making them a cost-effective choice for facilities that process many boxes each day.

What Are the Purchasing Options for Staples Packing Tape?
These products are available as single rolls that are ideal for small shipping projects or household use. Choose bulk packages of three to six rolls for moving day or stock a warehouse or mail room with cases containing 36 rolls of sealant. Some Staples tape comes bundled with handheld dispensers, so users can start their packing task immediately.
