Custom Shipping Tape

What is custom shipping tape?

Custom Printed Packaging Tape

Custom shipping tape is just like standard shipping tape, only better. It still has many of the same packaging features you expect, including durability, bond strength, and ease of use. But instead of plain tape, custom shipping tape features printed graphics that reflect your company’s logo or other identifying elements to help your packages stand out. 

Benefits of custom shipping tape

Rather than using plain tape, there are many reasons to customize shipping tape with your company’s logo or graphics: 

  • Tell your brand story – Custom shipping tape is just like a miniature billboard for your company. It has the power to capture attention and increase awareness of your brand throughout its travels.
  • Build customer loyalty – When end users see the care you’ve invested in making their package special, they’re more likely to return for future purchases.
  • Save money – Unlike expensive printed shipping boxes, custom shipping tape is a cost-effective packaging solution that can enhance your brand without breaking the bank.
  • Deter tampering – While criminals can easily reseal tampered boxes with regular packing tape, those with custom shipping tape deter tampering because it’s more difficult to reseal covertly.
  • Handle cargo better – With options to print handling and care instructions such as “Fragile” and “Refrigerate Upon Opening,” custom shipping tape can alert shipping teams and end-users about the contents of your packages.
  • QR Codes – Utilize your custom shipping tape to offer promotions or product information via QR codes.

Shipping tape customization options

Ordering custom shipping tape allows you to set certain specifications to ensure the result is a stunning representation of your company and brand. While the customizations vary depending on which shipping tape you choose, here are some of the features you can tailor to your preferences: 

  • Thickness – Many custom shipping tapes allow you to select a thickness based on the average weight of your boxes.
  • Width – Most of our custom shipping tapes are available in 2” and 3” widths, so that you can choose the best size for your application.  Contact us directly for custom widths.
  • Length – When choosing a length, consider how often you use your shipping tape, and order longer lengths for heavy use and shorter lengths for infrequent use.
  • Tape color – The color of the tape will also vary by type. From standard white and clear to a rainbow of options available in polypropylene and PVC, you’re sure to find the ideal backdrop for your custom graphics.
  • Number of ink colors – Whether you want a one-, two-, or three-color imprint, many of our tapes allow you to choose the number of inks you want to help your design stand out.
  • Ink colors – Our custom shipping tape options also allow you to select from a variety of ink colors to complement your tape color and corporate design standards. Custom colors are available.
