Improve packaging efficiency by getting a packaging dispenser. Whether for commercial or domestic purposes, this equipment helps save time and reduce the handling of packages during wrapping. They make work easier, faster, and more convenient. These tools come in different sizes to match the work intensity. There are handheld dispensers for home use and small errands and mounted units for commercial purposes. Provide clients with a visually flawless package by using the right combination of a packaging dispenser and packaging tape or paper. Besides dispensers, choose other shipping supplies from Staples convenient for your packing needs.

Choosing the right packaging tape for a packaging dispenser
Consider the company's needs before loading the dispenser. The two available types of packaging tapes are paper water-activated tapes and plastic pressure-sensitive tape. A handheld tape gun is suitable for applying pressure-sensitive tapes. An electric or manual tape dispenser is appropriate for paper water-activated tape. Extra guiding aspects include security, strength, theft prevention, safety, appearance, and eco-friendliness.

Difference between handheld and wall-mounted dispensers
Handheld packaging dispensers are suitable for the application of tape close to the package. They're convenient and ease the operator's work as they allow the user to take them to the point of application. Some help rub down the tape, saving time by doing double work. There are two categories to choose from in wall-mounted or tabletop dispensers: manual pull-and-tear and electronic dispensers. Pull-and-tear dispensers allow the user to cut lengths of tape that they desire. Electronic models dispense and cut tapes of constant lengths, according to how they're set. Other dispensers can hold rolls of paper, packaging twine or wire, bubble wrap, or stretch film.

Choose the right packaging dispenser
The two important factors to consider before choosing a packaging dispenser is the workload and availability of electricity. Heavy workloads need a dispenser capable of holding as much packaging tape or paper as possible. This helps avoid regular roll replacement. For heavy workloads, consider wall-mounted and electronic dispensers. They're capable of cutting tapes of preferred lengths automatically, reducing time for manual pulling and tearing of tapes. For one-time and light duties, consider handheld dispensers. Consider electronic dispensers for light duties if speed is a factor and electricity is available.

What are the advantages of a manual packaging dispenser?
Most manual dispensers are portable. This allows the operator to carry it to the area of operation. They are suitable for wrapping packages with odd shapes as the operator can navigate around the package with them. A dispenser with a self-rub feature helps save time more.

Which dispenser is more suitable for commercial use?
There is no specific answer to this question. The effectiveness of packaging dispensers depends on the type and size of packages. For huge packages like pallets, bigger and electronic models are a good fit. They help you save time by holding thick tape rolls and auto-cutting the tapes. For pallet-wrapping and loads of such huge sizes, stretch-wrap dispensers are more suitable. Also, consider the material. For commercial purposes, choose a dispenser made from a light, durable, and corrosion-resistant material. Such a dispenser will serve you longer.

Is the tape size capacity important when choosing a packaging dispenser?
Different dispensers have a maximum capacity of tape thickness they can hold. Most commercial dispensers hold up to 20-inch thick rolls. Handheld packaging dispensers hold 12- to 18-inch thick rolls.
