All You Need to Know About Custom Printed Poly Pro Tape

If you're looking for a custom-printed tape option that shows off your company's logo without breaking the bank, Tape Jungle's Poly Pro custom tape might be just what you need. As a more affordable custom logo tape option, Poly Pro is a great choice for small business owners who need tape that will show off their company's unique branding while ensuring that their packages stay secure and sealed during transit.

"Poly Pro" is short for polypropylene, a material that's durable and offers fantastic ease of use. Whether you're sealing your packages by machine or by hand, Poly Pro tape will allow you to simplify your shipping process without sacrificing branding or aesthetic appeal.

Customization for Brand Identity

Customizing your shipping materials can be an essential part of establishing your brand's identity, especially for new companies that are just beginning to get off the ground. When you use custom-branded tape on your shipments, your company's unique logo and branding are visible throughout every step of the journey, from your warehouse to the customer's front door.

The Impact of Custom Printed Poly Pro Tape

When you select customized polypropylene tape for your company's packaging and shipping needs, you can enjoy the benefits of branded parcels without having to break the bank. While choosing customized boxes or shipping containers is often a choice that business owners consider, this can get expensive if you need a wide array of sizes. When you opt for customized tape instead, any plain box becomes unique to your brand once it's sealed.

While the way your packages appear before the customer even opens them might seem inconsequential, never underestimate the importance and the power of branding. Some of the most well-known e-commerce businesses have stood out in a crowded marketplace by ensuring their packages are recognizable and unique to their brand. The more recognizable your brand becomes, the more customers find their way to your business.

Design Options and Possibilities

At Tape Jungle, we want to give you as many options as possible when it comes to customizing your Poly Pro tape. We offer the tape in standard white, clear, or beige hues, in addition to just about any other color possible for a slightly higher cost. We're able to utilize your logo, company name, or other designs or texts that you might have in mind. If you know you want custom logo tape but aren't sure where to begin, our talented in-house design team can help you figure out the right design and layout for your tape.

Security and Tamper-Evident Features

In the world of e-commerce, theft and fraud are unfortunate realities. That doesn't just include so-called "porch pirates," who steal packages whole from customers' front doors. It also includes scenarios where someone may try to tamper with the package or steal the contents without taking the whole package entirely.

When you choose a custom printed tape that boasts your company's name and logo, you're not just promoting your brand, you're also utilizing what we call a tamper-evident seal. This means that when a package has been opened, it becomes very evident due to tears and irregularities in the design on the tape. This can often act as a deterrent to would-be thieves, as it makes it more difficult to steal the contents of the package discreetly. This can help to reduce the money you lose having to replace items that were stolen or subject to tampering on their way to the customer.

Versatile Applications: Where Custom Printed Poly Pro Tape Shines

Thanks to its affordable price and durable materials, Poly Pro tape serves a wide array of business and packaging functions. Here's how custom printed tape can be an asset to your business.

E-commerce and Shipping

If you run an e-commerce business, then you know how absolutely crucial it is that your products arrive at their destination sealed and in one piece. While Poly Pro tape might be one of our more affordable options, don't think for a second that you're not getting one of our highest-quality products. Poly Pro tape is highly adhesive and durable, which means that you don't have to worry about your packages becoming unsealed during the shipping process, even during inclement weather conditions.

Retail Packaging

Since our custom branded tape is available in a wide array of colors and customization options, you can also put it to use in a retail setting. If your store offers gift wrapping, this tape can be a great way to show off your company's logo and branding without sacrificing style or visual appeal.

Industrial and Heavy-Duty Use

Thanks to its affordable price, your customized Poly Pro tape can also come in handy in your warehouse location. Whether you need to seal a box of inventory or quickly affix your logo to something, having this tape on hand can be a huge asset to the day-to-day operations of your business. A handheld tape dispenser can be a great way to ensure that you can cut off a smooth section of your custom logo tape whenever you need it.

Comparing Polypropylene to Custom Printed Gum Tape and PVC Tapes

At Tape Jungle, our custom logo tape is available in standard, premium, and paper varieties. The standard Poly Pro tape is the most versatile and can be used in both start-up shipping sites and industrial warehouses.

Our premium tapes, or PVC tapes, are ideal for cold surfaces and can adhere to irregular surfaces. However, they have a flat finish and are not recommended for machine use.

Our water-activated paper tape will bond with cardboard box fibers. Since the adhesive is water-activated, it can only be used by machines. This is our only tape that has a matte finish, is 100% opaque, and is made from 100% recycled materials.

If you're still not sure exactly which tape choice is right for you and your needs, here's everything you need to know about how our Poly Pro tape stacks up to the other custom logo tape options that we offer.

Adhesive and Application

Our Poly Pro tape features a self-adhesive, which means that it doesn't require water or special equipment to form a seal. This makes it a more versatile option, especially for those who might want to be able to apply the tape either by hand or by machine. Our PVC tape can only be applied by hand and our paper tape can only be applied by machine. While both of these varieties offer several benefits, this can limit how you're able to use them. This is one of the many reasons why we think our Poly Pro custom printed tape is such a fantastic option for startups and small businesses.


The strength of the tape in relation to your package weight is dependent upon its thickness. Our Poly Pro tape is available in three options:

  • 1.9 Mil - For packages 0-30 pounds
  • 2.5 Mil - For packages 30-60 pounds
  • 3.0 Mil - For packages 60-90 pounds

You'll notice that all three varieties that we offer for custom printed tape offer comparable strength levels. This demonstrates that you don't have to sacrifice strength or durability when opting for the standard Poly Pro option.

Transparency, Fine Details, and Finish

Our standard Poly Pro tape is semi-transparent, with sharp details and a glossy finish. If you have your heart set on an opaque custom tape with a matte finish, our paper tape might be the better choice. If you're looking for a finish somewhere in between the two, you might want to consider our PVC tape. For most businesses, however, the standard tape offers just what they need. Its glossy finish is eye-catching, and the sharp detailing ensures that your logo, text, and branding are easily visible.

The Ordering Process: How to Get Your Custom Printed Poly Pro Tape

Additionally, customers can choose the base tape color and specify the quantity they wish to order.
