Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need water-activated or pressure sensitive tape?

Pressure Sensitive Tape is a great solution for lower volume operations, and for relatively lighter weight packages.

For high-volume applications you will discover our Water Activated Kraft Paper Tape is better performing, more reliable, and more affordable per box seal. Most often, 1 strip of paper tape will do the job of 3 strips of plastic tape.

What are your artwork specifications and requirements?

Design and customize tape with ease. Find our full list of art specs and requirements here; inclusive of downloadable templates, print details, and file type requirements. Custom printed tape is just a few clicks away.

How long will it take to receive my custom tape?

You will receive a digital proof of your tape within 1-2 days after your order is placed. Once your proof is approved, your lead time and custom tape printing will begin. Check out our current lead times here.

Is your tape recyclable, compostable, biodegradable?

We encourage focusing on the end-of-life and recyclability of the box that the tape is to be used on. None of our tape will prevent a shipping box from being recycled.

When our non-reinforced water-activated tape is placed on a corrugate box, and that box is recycled with the tape, both the tape and the box are easily recycled in the same stream. The same goes for our reinforced water-activated tape, except the fiberglass is screened out during box recycling.

The adhesive on our Kraft flatback tape is partially natural, partially synthetic rubber, and coated with a high-tack adhesive that is not biodegradable. This tape is often screened out during box recycling.

Our cello tape is fully biodegradable and industrially compostable. It is not, however, backyard compostable due to the temperature requirements for composting our cello material. This tape is screened out during box recycling.

Do you offer custom tape samples?

We do not offer custom tape design samples, but we do share a digital proof that is designed to show the design layout, text accuracy, image proportion, and artwork placement on the label. You will receive a final preproduction proof within 1-2 days after your order is placed.

We offer complimentary samples of water-activated tape so you can get a feel for print quality and materials. Single rolls of our cello and Kraft flatback tape can be purchased here.

Does your custom tape contain recycled content?

Our unprinted non-reinforced water-activated tape has 50% recycled content. Unfortunately at this time, to receive 50% recycled content in custom printed non-reinforced water-activated tape you must order 63+ cases of tape. If this is of interest, please contact us.

Do you offer tape dispensers?

Yes! We recommend a dispenser for our water-activated tape. This tape is operationally seamless to use when used with an automated WAT dispenser allowing you to move orders through fulfillment more quickly and easily.

Our Kraft flatback and cello tape can be torn by hand.

Where is your tape manufactured and printed?

All of our tape is printed in the USA. Our water-activated tape and Kraft flatback tape are manufactured in the USA. Our cello tape is manufactuerd in Spain.

Pull & Tear, Manual and Electric Methods

Manual Method and Manual Dispenser

We really love Water-Activated Tape here at EcoEnclose.

WAT is strong, secure, easy to use, and we find we can use less tape than pressure sensitive alternatives. These videos show three ways to use WAT: A sponge, manual dispenser, and electric dispenser.
