What you need to do when you order your printed tape


To make your printed tape we need the following information:

• Colors: How many Pantone colors, and which Pantone numbers. (Our standardcolors)

• Is it positive or reverse (negative) print. (See examples here)

• Tape quality. (Ex. PVC, PP or??), if tape quality is unknown specify its most common use, we can make a suggestion.

• Width and length of the tape.

• Quantity. Do not order more rolls than can be consumed within a reasonable time (about 3-6 months), minimum quantity 1 carton.



Which tape-quality should I choose?


There are different tape qualities available. Before choosing your quality, the following should be considered:

• The weight of the boxes being sealed

• The size of the boxes being sealed

• At which temperature are the boxes being sealed?

• Is the tape meant for hand rolls or machine rolls?

• May the tape also be noisy (which is not the same as being a poor quality)

• Do you prefer an easy or a heavy unwinding?



Printed tape


What is possible?
Answer: Almost everything! However, some qualities do have limited printing possibilities.

How do you achieve the best advertisement?
Answer: That’s an individual estimation. Today, the name of your company + logo + homepage is a very common solution.

How to get started?
Answer: If the tape should contain the same or similar print as your notepaper, visiting card etc, these have been bade from a file which we can normally use. The best would be to e-mail us this file as an outlined, illustrated EPS or PDF File. In case no file can be provided, our desk-topper can draw the most common pictures and figures.

What much does it cost?
Answer: Obviously, this depends on facts like choice of quality, quantity and the difficulty of the print. Having this information, we can easily make you a quotation. Standard measure is 50 mm x 66 m each roll (36 rolls/box = minimum quantity).
