Water-Activated Packaging Tape
Water-Activated Packaging Tape to Secure Shipping
Keep your products and packages safe during shipping with water-activated packaging tape.
Our fiberglass-reinforced packaging tape is ideal for sealing packages that weigh 35 lbs. or lighter. It is water-activated, making it very easy and convenient to use. Simply dab water onto the unprinted side of the tape with a wet sponge as you’re closing the package – and you’re done. Our tape rolls fit most industrial dispensers, making application much easier, faster, and neater.
Likewise, it’s theft- and tamper-deterrent: any damage to the seal is instantly visible.
Packing tape not only helps secure shipments, but it also promotes your brand and boosts recognition among your customers. Full-color logos are printed onto the surface of the tape at 2", 3", 4", 6", or 12" intervals. Logos and designs may be placed vertically, horizontally, or diagonally on the surface.

Water-Activated Packaging Tape FAQs
How much does it cost to print branded packaging tape?
The cost depends on the quantity of rolls and length you order. You can always get an instant quote using the order calculator on this product page. Just select your preferred printing specs and the calculator automatically previews the total amount and price per piece.
How do I apply packaging tape?
There are two ways you can apply water-activated tape: by hand or with a tape dispenser. You only need to add moisture on the non-printed side for it to stick. For manual application, simply use a wet sponge. If you have a dispenser, you can adjust the length in the settings and the machine automatically moistens the tape for you.
Is branded packaging tape permanent?
Water-activated tape is permanent as soon as it’s applied. Once the moistened adhesive sticks to the box, a capillary action bonds the tape to the surface. You cannot remove the tape without leaving a broken seal.
Is packaging tape recyclable?
Our tape is made of biodegradable kraft paper, so it easily breaks down during the composting process.
