Does its job, and does it well,
This review is from: Scotch(R) Gift Wrap Tape, 0.75 x 300 Inches, 3 Pack (311) (Office Product)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
"Invisible" is pretty typical of tape marketing, and I think consumers have come to expect some degree of transparency from tape, but we're still far from the disappearing act suggested by Scotch and other tape brands. That being said, this tape comes as close as I think we can reasonably expect. It's specifically intended for gift wrap, and the "satin" finish matches very closely to the finish on most of my wrapping papers, making it much less jarring and obvious when the present is all taped up and ready to go. As most Scotch brand tapes are, this tape is very sturdy and doesn't tear vertically like some of the cheaper tapes. It feels thick and it's very satisfying to use.
The only thing I don't really like about the tape is the dispenser. It's a standard size, but it feels too small for the thickness of the tape and it was very easy to accidentally pop the tape roll out of the roller. It was also easy to get back in, but I'm not going to refill this dispenser so I'd prefer if the roll stayed put.
All in all a good, dependable product and a welcome addition to the present-wrapping box.
