While shopping for office supplies I really didn't pay attention to this, the size of it is 2/3rd's of what I normally use, you know regular old tape that you use everyday, you know - tape.... This is not that, this is narrow, it is only ½ inch wide (.500), the normal stuff is ¾ wide (.750), what a mistake that was. Oh well - live - learn but mostly "read" them first, don't overlook it like I did. Oh Boy . . . Oh it's tape all right but just not enough of it (hahaha), needless to say I am looking for ways to use it up now - ha-ha.
We find Scotch tape to work better than generic tape. It sticks well, tears easily with the jagged edge of the dispenser and is strong enough to hold up when you need it. We needed 12 rolls of tape on a disposable dispenser, and what do you know - Amazon had just such a product. I appreciate that it came as a 12 pack, with little extra packaging - easy to open and store. The price was better than buying the rolls individually locally.
