EZ Start Packaging Tape
EZ Start packaging tape unrolls effortlessly and features an easy release formula making it easy to start the tape end with every use. The tape doesn't split or tear and the end is always easy to find. A bonus of EZ Start is the lack of noise when in use. The clear EZ Start tape uses an acrylic adhesive that allows application in a wide range of temperatures from hot to cold. It won't get gummy in heat or crack in the cold. Ultraviolet resistance eliminates yellowing and increases shelf life. EZ Start meets postal regulations making it the perfect tape for your home or office needs.
EZ Start Prints
Take your shipping to the next level with EZ Start Prints. No matter what the shipping destination, you can personalize it to make it a "Special Delivery". Choose from a wide variety of everyday and seasonal patterns to meet your package personality. As an extension of EZ Start clear packaging tape, EZ Start Prints use 2.6 mil thick tape featuring EZ Start Frustration Free technology. The special release feature of the tape allows you to solve those known packaging tape frustrations. As you decorate your package, it is easy to find the tape end and the tape won't split or tear. EZ Start Prints aren't just for shipping. Embellish a gift, decorate for a party, color code your storage boxes. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination.
HD Clear is a heavy duty packaging tape that proves invaluable in all-purpose carton sealing for moving and storage. The 2.6 mil thick tape exerts a tensile supporting strength force of 31 pounds per inch against packages during moving and storage. The acrylic adhesive provides ultraviolet resistance eliminating yellowing over time so your boxes come out of storage in the same condition as when they went in. The adhesive withstands wide temperature swings inherent when used for storage. If you prefer resurfacing over shipping labels, writing or covering gaps in a box, try HD tape in tan.
HP 260 is a high performance carton sealing tape ideal for heavy duty and long-term shipping applications. The 3.1 mil thickness provides 35 pounds. of tensile strength to support a package. As with other Duck Brand packaging tapes, HP 260 resists ultraviolet yellowing and performs in extreme temperature fluctuations.

Standard Packaging Tape
Standard packaging tape is ideal for light sealing. The 1.6 and 1.9 mil thick packaging tape has fast grab adhesion upon application.

In order to avoid that hassle, I've gone all over town to different office supply stores looking for the paper tape that USPS uses. Those stores all told me I should try to buy it at the Post Office - but the Post Office employees said I should go to office supply stores.
When I saw this Duck brand reinforced tape on Amazon, I went ahead and bought it since it looked right in the pictures. It turned out to be exactly what I needed!
As far as applying this goes, this is what I ended up doing:
1) Cut a piece to the length I need
2) Wipe the gummed backing with a wet wash cloth (it does have to be fairly wet, so don't wring it out too much - or the tape won't stick)
3) Apply the tape to the box and rub it smooth
Using that method, I can cover an entire box in just a few minutes - and I definitely got better at it with a little practice. The key is to find the right level of moisture in the sponge - if it's not wet enough, the tape won't stick - if it's too wet, the gummed backing will come off.
Overall, I highly recommend this tape if you're using registered mail. It's nice and wide, reinforced, and easy to apply. What else could I want?
Let's face it, the type of tape you use is job dependent. This is not scotch tape, duct tape, electrical tape, silk (surgical) tape, double sided tape, packing tape (clear) or masking tape. This type of tape has one significant and specialized role--what it boils down to is that reinforced paper tape is what is required by the US Postal Service for registered mail.
The tape has to be reinforced to prevent pilfering, and it has to be paper to take all the stamps that get put on the package--basically every seam has to be hand stamped by the guy/gal accepting the package at the window--also to prevent pilfering as a cut seam would be more visible. This is why otherwise excellent, reinforced, plastic (?) type tapes are a no go. They can't hold the stamp ink.
One foible of this kind of tape is the fact it needs to be 'water activated', namely you have to wet it to make it work. I'm sure there is a specific technical reason why it has to be this way--I'm guessing it has to do with the nature of paper and the fact it comes in rolls because if it didn't need water to stick, it would just stick to itself (and make an odd doorstop). I can see why this is problematic and annoying (I annoy myself many times when I mess up) BUT it is the nature of using a paper tape. Perhaps there is a self sticking one out there, but I haven't found it yet so I can't really say it's a drawback to have to use the water.Read more ›
Any adhesive not wet when applied may endanger the whole strip by snagging so be sure to wet the ENTIRE strip if not using a machine. You can apply water later though if you realized you missed a spot, it'll stick just fine.

Another waste of money on a Duck-brand product. Why not put "water-activated" in the item description? Read morePublished 22 days ago by Natosha
use this for heavier boxes that I ship for my business. The first time I used it, I used too much water and it was a mess; Now I use a slightly damp sponge and it works perfectly.Published 26 days ago by E. Glennon
