Do you tape the majority of your packages by hand? While there’s nothing wrong with this, it’s often time-consuming and tedious. Plus, if you aren’t careful, it can result in paper cuts or tape burn.
In order to save time and improve efficiency, consider upgrading to a tape dispenser. These tools might not look like much, but they can help you increase package volume and get more done.
Almost everyone is familiar with what a tape dispenser does, but did you know there are many different types? At Specialized Tape, we carry several different tape dispensers. Here’s a brief overview of their features and benefits.
Folded edge hand dispenser. This type of tape dispenser uses a special mechanism to fold both edges of the tape as it’s applied to a package. This unique feature provides a secure and durable seal that prevents your shipment from opening during transit. Tape that’s applied using a folded edge dispenser is also easier to open. There’s no need for scissors or a knife, meaning your customers can break the packaging seal by hand.
Professional pistol grip tape dispenser. Professional pistol grip tape dispensers are ideal for manual application. They feature a plastic or metal wipe-down plate that helps the tape better adhere to the package. In addition, pistol grip dispensers can hold tape rolls that are up to 2 inches wide.
Filament tape hand dispenser. Filament tape dispensers are lightweight and made of metal. Their ergonomic design allows for comfortable, easy application by pressing down on your thumb. Filament dispensers also feature a brake component. That allows for a tight, secure, and impenetrable seal.
Electronic tape dispensers. If you package dozens (or even hundreds) of products each day, consider upgrading to an electronic tape dispenser. These devices reduce material costs, cut the tape at a consistent length and significantly speed up the packaging process.
