3.0 out of 5 stars Great tape, but much less quantity than you think., November 7, 2010
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?)
I give the tape itself 5 stars -it is fantastic, and is really the best tape to use on wrapping paper, because it does a great job of disappearing. It is MUCH better, in fact, than the typical Scotch tape which can be removed and reused if not put on correctly --and which is not fully see through. Though that tape also does a great job when used for wrapping, the Satin Finish tape is better.

The only problem I had is that I was really surprised at how little tape came on each of these three rolls; it was ridiculous. I had a "regular" single roll of Scotch Satin Tape and the tape on THAT roll was at LEAST three times the diameter of the tape on each of these 3-pack rolls. So, the bottom line is that these three rolls of tape seem to have less tape than a single roll of the regular sized Scotch Satin Tape. Basically if you like to have more rolls of tape lying around (for example, useful if other people are helping you wrap) AND the three rolls are cheaper, together, than a single roll, then go for the three rolls. If, however, you like having less clutter, less wasting of resources (more plastic going into the garbage), and NOT running out of tape in the middle of wrapping, go for the single roll. (The single roll also has the advantage of having a stronger case -and is sealed on both the front and the back.

You can't go wrong with the quality of this product, just with the amount of waste, and the amount of tape you get for your money.

Recommended as a single roll. Not recommended as a three pack unless multiple people are wrapping at the same time.

Awesome points!!! Really, I mean it, its nice to see a slightly different PoV. :) It haven't even used a full regular roll (I usually borrowed it from someone else) so I had no idea how much smaller these were, if at all, then the normal ones.

God Bless ~Amy

I compared the size of these rolls to the ones sold at my local walmart. Each roll does have the same advertised length--300" for each roll.
