For Long Thin Boxes - Save time & tape, use Filament Tape with an "L Clip" - a small tab of tape around 60mm in length that seals over each edge.

Best Way To Store Tape - Away from sunlight in a cool dry area.

To Get Best Adhesion When Applying Tape - Make sure that boxes are dirt & dust free, full surface contact is made with tape & box it is being applied too. (ie- run your hand along the tape).

Tape or Adhesive Envelopes Aren't Sticking Well in Cold Weather - Keep your tape or envelopes in your office (at room temperature) if your factory is cold, as adhesives work better in warmer temperatures.

When Opening A Box Of Tape, Never Slice Across The Box With A Knife - As this may put a knick in the roll, causing the tape to tear everytime it unrolls - making the roll defective.
