Our Guide To e-tape

e-tape & e-tape Dispensers are world renowned for their quality & high performance, and in this guide we’ll tell you the reasons why!


What is e-tape?

e-tape is a is a high-quality packaging tape, designed to improve efficiency and reduce packaging waste. That’s because e-tape has 127% more tape than a standard 66m roll, and its smaller core reduces waste by 56%. It’s also highly versatile and can be used for many packaging requirements.


So, if you are looking to save money, time, or space, e-tape ticks all 3 boxes! And here are our top 3 reasons to switch to e-tape!


Why Use e-tape?

  1. Save Money – With 150M of tape on each roll, using e-tape will significantly reduce your downtime changing rolls. This is a hidden packaging cost that can really add up. If you want to improve your operational effectiveness, switch to e-tape today!
  2. Save Space – In addition to the 150M roll length, the cardboard core is just 2″, meaning the roll is the same size as a standard tape, but it has more tape on it! This means e-tape will actually take up less of your valuable warehouse space, as you’ll need to store fewer rolls. Can your current supplier offer you this sort of saving? If not, talk to the Packaging Pros!
  3. Reduce Waste – As there is more tape per roll, switching to e-tape will actually reduce your packaging waste! This is yet another fantastic reason to use e-tapeSo far, switching to e-tape has reduced the hidden costs of packaging, increased your operation effectiveness, saved you space, and reduced your packaging waste.


Are there any more reasons to switch, I hear you cry? Well, yes. Yes there are!


Noise Reduction

You can choose low noise options from our range of e-tapes. The low noise tapes are identified with “L/N” on the product, such as this buff e-tape. Not only that, but you can also choose silent e-tape dispensers too. As the name suggests, they’re designed to minimise noise when you’re sealing boxes. So, whether you’re in an office, a small packing room or even a large warehouse, you will be able to create a much quieter working environment. And a quieter environment will be a much happier one too.


Colour Options

Variety is the spice of life, and we like offering our customers real choice! Our e-tape comes in clear, buff (brown) or white as standard, but if you are looking for something more bespoke, keep reading!





Printed e-tape

Here at Springpack, we stock a wide range of Pre-Printed e-tape, such as our FRAGILE e-tape. Like all e-tape, this comes with 150M of tape per roll, meaning there is 127% more tape than a standard 66m roll. Again, this will save you time changing rolls, reduce your storage needs, and reduce your packaging waste.

2. Pre-Printed E-tapes

Let people know your boxes need extra care with pre-printed fragile e-tape. The message is clear and easily visible, meaning your box contents will be much safer from damage. Alternatively, we have a pre-printed ‘contents checked’ e-tape. This message alerts the receiver that if there is any damage, they should contact the seller immediately.

And if these pre-printed e-tapes aren’t quite what you’re looking for, we can provide custom printed tape too.


3. Buff, Clear or White E-tapes

Designed for everyday use, you can choose from white, clear, or buff e-tapes. Your preference may depend on what materials you’ll be sealing the tape to. For instance, on white boxes clear or white tape would be recommended over buff coloured tape. And vice-versa, for brown cardboard boxes, we’d recommend buff coloured e-tape.


4. E-tape Plus

We also have several e-tape plus options for you to choose from. E-tape plus is one of the most popular options that customers choose. You can get e-tape plus options across our range of e-tapes.
