Scotch shipping take is the best!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love to use Scotch Packing tape everytime I send a package to my kids for birthday's, christmas or just because. I rely on Scotch Packing Heavy Duty take because of it's strength and I know it will hold ad will not use anything else!!

Decent, heavy duty
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really like the quality and strength of the tape. The only complaint I have is the strength and ease of use of the dispenser. Dispenser itself feels cheap and easily breakable. Otherwise a great value.

Super product!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product as a sample for testing. I used this to box up materials for shipping. I had a little difficulty figuring out how to work the dispenser but after I learned the device was very easy to use. The tape itself is very sturdy and sticky. Some of the boxes that I sealed were a little damp from the rain and the tape held excellently. I will definitely buy this product as it met all of the criteria I look for when planning to seal and send packages.

Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping holds fast
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used my Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping tape to mail a box. At first I didn't think the tape itself felt sticky enough to adhere properly to the box but after applying it I realized it was indeed sticky enough and would hold fast.

Scotch Shipping tape is the best packing tape.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a sample of Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping tape to review. I have used Scotch shipping tape for years. This doesn't seem a whole lot different from what I've used previously. It may be a bit thicker. I don't like the dispenser it came on however. Just too flimsy and it's hard to cut the tape with. I have a regular dispenser that I use and it works so much better. I recently moved and only used 3M tape for all the boxes I packed. There were only a couple that didn't stay closed but I can't say if that was the tape or the person who taped it. I have used other brands in the past but they were far too thin and not strong enough to keep boxes closed. I have also used this tape to get cat hair off my furniture and clothing. It works great for that!! And since it's clear (nearly invisible), I've used it to repair items as well.

The ONLY Tape to Pack Boxes With
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Scotch Brand, Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape is the ONLY tape I use for taping Cardboard boxes with!! I recently got a small sample of Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape in the mail to try from 3M, however it arrived after I took off to Illinois to be with my son who is now in hospice with stage 4 Stomach Cancer. Even while my oldest son was deployed in Iraq with the US Army, the countless care packages I shipped, I used 3M's Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Packaging Tape.

Strong And Easy To Use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received a free sample of 3M Scotch Heavy Duty Packaging Tape and used this product to seal a package to mail. The tape is wonderful! It dispensed very easily and smoothly. This tape is strong enough to tape cartons of books with just one strip! The adhesive on the tape really holds. The other thing I like about this tape is that it is clear so it can easily be used over labels without fear of covering important shipping information. The amount and length could be a little longer but it’s enough. The tear teeth are sharp and make it easy to get any size piece you need.

Great tape and dispenser
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This packaging tape is as strong as is needed. One layer of it seals the seam. I used it on a smaller package I had to mail. And it is crystal clear. The dispenser works well and can be refilled. It could also be used to repair a box.

Great for Moving Boxes
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used Scotch Heavy Duty Shipping Tape on boxes for my recent move. It held together much better than I even expected, even on the bottom heavy boxes full of books. The dispenser made it super easy to use which was so nice in the hustle and bustle of a big move.

Perfecto Product !!!!!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] HI: 3M gave me a free sample of this product to evaluate. It’s an awesome product and I used it to store collectibles, such as an autographed CD from a local musician. It’s super strong and the gripper is very useful. I am very glad it was made in the USA and no worries that it won’t stay sealed for storage. I am very glad it’s refillable too !
