What makes the Custom Reinforced Gummed Packing Tape eco-friendly?
Your personalized Custom Reinforced Gummed Packing Tape is made from 100% recycled acid-free paper that's certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC), so you can be confident that it's sourced from a responsibly and sustainably managed forest and supply chain. On top of that, we use soy-based inks, water-activated adhesive, and fiberglass thread reinforcement to ensure your tape is equally reliable and recyclable!

How is the Custom Reinforced Gummed Packing Tape printed?
Our Custom Reinforced Gummed Packing Tape is customized via offset printing with soy-based inks in CMYK colors. This means you can use as many colors as you'd like for your tape design without worrying about any toxic inks. Choose between 2 bases:
Double-sided printing is not available for this tape, but 1 side is all you'll need for beautiful branding!
