Tape is used wherever products need to be packaged or shipped. The use of tape has increased enormously with the rise of e-commerce. Running a webshop? Printed tape offers you a great opportunity to be distinctive and to package your products in a safe and recognisable manner. It creates trust and ensures that customers see and remember your name. But also in the world of light and sound products, printed tape is used to bundle cables, for example. This is also called cable tape.
An inexpensive, simple and a very effective means of communication
When customers see your name, it creates trust and your name settles in their memory. In this way, printed tape increases your brand awareness in a simple and inexpensive way, and you make optimal use of your packaging tape. In addition, your products are well protected during transport.
Our printed tape is available in various qualities, for example our showpiece and at the same time the most popular quality PVC, but also paper, durable tape, PP-Hotmelt or PP-Acrylic. The difference has to do with the type of foil, the colour of the foil and the adhesive. Read more about the various tape qualities.
The printing technique and possibilities
We print your tape using one or more plates. Such a plate is more or less comparable to a stamp. It concerns a plate made of photo polymer, parts of which have been carved. This creates higher and lower parts. The number of plates needed depends on the number of printing colours required.
Once the plate is made, it is attached to a cylinder. This is a detailed process, and ensures a high quality of the imprints. Once the plate has been attached, the tape printing machines are provided with the desired ink colour(s). We mainly work with PMS colours, but RAL and HKS are also possible. The higher parts of the plate press the ink onto the tape.
We can often use a plate several times. That is why we only charge plate costs in a first order. In case of a change in the imprint, we must of course charge the plate costs.
The standard colours of packaging tape are white, brown/havana and transparent. This is the basis and the surface for every print. Then there are three options:
- The tape colour is the base colour. The logo or letters are printed on it.
- The printing technique is transparent. The logo and letters are cut out on the tape.
- The tape is printed twice. First the background colour is applied and then the text with the logo.
Radiate what you are
Printed tape not only ensures a secure closure of your packaging, but also makes it recognisable. It is part of your company's image: personal, meticulous, with attention to detail.
