Every once in a while I have to send a registered package - and it's a huge pain because of the special packaging requirements. In the past, I've gone to the Post Office and stood there for 30 minutes while they wrap the package in paper tape for me. (At least it seems like 30 minutes when the line is building up behind me...) It's nice that they'll do this for free, but it's also a waste of time.

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.

Enter Amazon!

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?

Seriously, NOT what I ever thought to write a review on...particularly some tape that already has reviews! Mostly I was a little surprised this wasn't 4 or 5 stars by all reviewers and it make me want to add my two cents. For any product I want to know (if I didn't know already) is 1. What is it designed to do? and 2. How well does it do it?

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.

I only learned after purchasing this tape that you'd generally need a rather expensive machine to use this tape effectively. But, I did just fine with scissors and soaked paper towels. Cut to length, slide the adhesive side along a wet paper towel, and apply. Once dry (about a few minutes give or take), it is very difficult to remove and will indeed peel the material it's attached to like for example the cardboard of a stiff mailer. The fibers within the tape also put up a fight against manual pulling or a well sharpened steel knife. Strong and cheap, I like it.

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.

I have ordered about 10 rolls of this tape over the last three months in preparation to move my personal effects abroad. This is the best tape you can use to seal boxes or build larger boxes from smaller boxes. You use a moist sponge to apply just the right amount of water to the gummed tape backing. When dried the tape makes a very strong bond to most materials but especially cardboard. This tape is not available to me locally so I buy it from Amazon.com and it arrives in about 3 or 4 days. You will not find a better product for sealing boxes. Although the product is known as Duck tape, do not confuse it with DUCT tape. This is a paper tape that apply with a wet sponge. It's an excellent product and I recommend it to anyone packing boxes. The price is also very reasonable.

This is excellent tape, as you can see from other reviews, however I found that the edges curled up as it dried. Very frustrating and time consuming trying to re-stick the edges. It is the right choice for shipping registered, insured valuables such as bullion coins, but I gave up and went to adhesive-backed tape for all other packing jobs.
