Custom Printed Carton Sealing Tape

Our most popular packing tape; what you’re most likely to find at your local hardware store. This tape is made from high quality polypropylene with a hot melt adhesive and is suited for most applications. It come in two grades: Standard Grade 1.9 mil and 2.5 mil Heavy Duty for boxes 40 lbs or heavier.

Ink Colors

Each color in your design is printed separately and on its own plate. We can print up to 3 colors and have 11 stock colors to choose from. We can also blend custom colors via Pantone Match System (PMS).

11 Stock Ink Colors:

Reflex Blue
Process Blue
Red PMS 199
Green PMS 347
Orange PMS 165
Yellow PMS 108
Burgundy PMS 222
Gray PMS 431
Brown PMS 476

Tape Colors

We recommend using a neutral background; White, Tan or Clear are standard as ink is not perfectly opaque. If you print white ink over black tape, for example, it will appear gray, which is why we do not offer black tape.

Poly Pro 1.9 mil is also available in Red, Yellow and Orange for an additional fee. We recommend printing a darker color(s) over colored film where possible as to reduce the influence on the ink.

Art Files and Proofs

Every order receives a digital proof from our design department prior to production. There is no charge for revisions or simple edits such as spacing or adding a phone number. If you do not love the proof or if your plans change you can modify or cancel your order for a complete refund at anytime before submitting your approval.

For your art file, we prefer the original vector (.ai, .psd, .eps) but any high resolution image (300 DPI or greater) will work. We can accept any format you have (.png, .jpg, .pdf, .tif, etc).

We just need the logo and our designers will do take it from there. Generally the ideal layout is intuitive but if you have special instructions you can enter them during checkout. You do NOT need to size the file to fit the tape. The maximum dimensions for the print area itself are as follows:

Print Area Dimensions
  • Max height is 1.6" for 2" wide tapes; 2.5" for 3" wide tapes.
  • Length is generally 5-7” long with a maximum length of 14.5” using an oversized (additional $20 fee applies)

If for some reason the file isn’t uploading, you want to change files or you want us to have more than one simply checkout as normal and reply to your confirmation email afterward with the attachment(s). You can also send them to

Plates and Order Minimums

Plate fees are only for the initial order. After that we will keep your plate(s) on file and continue to service or replace them as needed for as long as we are printing your tape.

Lead Times

QHow long does it take for the Custom Printed Product to Arrive at my door?


Most orders arrive within 21 Days.

QHow long is each step in the process?


From Order to Proof (1-3 Business Days)

From Proof Approval to Print (12-15 Business Days)

From Print to Delivery (1-5 Business Days via UPS Ground, expedited freight available)

QCan I have my order shipped faster?


Out of respect to pending customer prints, our lead times accurate, and first in first out. It’s advised that initial orders be placed 1 month in advance. If you have an emergency or a product launch date please either note in the comments section, call (877) 284-4781 or email and we will do our best to accommodate.

QWhen are you open for business?


Monday-Friday, 9-5pm. Excluding major holidays.


QHow many colors can I print?


We can print up to three colors but the fewer colors the lower the minimum orders the lower the cost of the tape and plates and less likely a color may overlap another (we guarantee the print within 1mm of the proof but 3 colors means up to 3mm of possible variance).

QWhy does the Pantone Match Systems (PMS) cost more?


With Pantone colors we create the ink by blending together substrates for each order. We acquire the stock colors in very large quantities so if your logo color is close to one of our stock colors we recommend using the stock.

QCan you print on black tape, colored tape?


It is not recommended to print over colored film as the ink color will be influenced by the background, black being the most difficult.

QWhat about shading or halftones? Is that still considered one color?


We can print shades or halftones of one color using a screen, that use dots

Artwork/File Requirements

QWhat kind of file type do you require to print?


Resolution is most important and vector files are prefered. Our online order form accepts most formats: jpg, png, ai, psd, pdf

QWhat kind of resolution do you require?


If your image is not a vector file, then 300 dpi (dot per inch) is prefered. TIP: If you’re not sure if your image at normal scale is good enough, zoom in on your image with your computer's image viewing software, if after you zoom in two or three times, you start to see pixelation (blurry edges) you might want to look for a higher resolution images. But don’t let that stop you from sending to us. If we feel your image is not of high enough quality, we will let you know before going to print.

QI’m still not sure about the resolution/My file isn’t quite ready/I’m getting an ERROR when I upload but I want to place the my order. What do I do?


That’s no problem. You can place the order online and as long as you get the file over to us in 24 hours or so you won’t lose your place in line
