The Benefits of Using Printed Packaging Tape

Holmes Mann is a specialist supplier of printed tape, whether you want a custom design to represent your business or a standard tape to convey important information about the contents of your packages.


Standard printed tape can be invaluable in getting across messages such as ‘This Way Up’, ‘Caution’ and ‘Fragile’, while custom designs can offer metre-by-metre marketing for your brand.

Holmes Mann’s custom-designed self-adhesive tape is printed in-house and is available in standard width sizes of 19mm, 25mm, 38mm, 50mm and 75mm. We can also provide alternative widths on request. This makes us the prime choice, not just in Bradford or Leeds or Yorkshire, but throughout the UK for all your printed packaging tape needs.

The first choice you must make, however, is whether you want to go down the custom-made route or want to opt for a standard tape. To help you out, we have compiled a list of the benefits of each kind of tape.

Standard Printed Tape

These can instantly identify packaging that needs special storage or handling to help safeguard products during transit and aid the consumer when they arrive at their destination.

Packaging tape can provide evidence of tampering and can be an effective deterrent. This can help save your business money.

Custom Printed Packaging Tape

This has major marketing benefits, distinguishing your brand and increasing its visibility. The spotlight is put on your company from the moment a cardboard box or crate leaves your workplace to the time it reaches your customer.

Your custom printed packaging tape can carry important handling information as well as your branding and can also act as an effective anti-tamper measure. Printed tape that is broken or resealed is instantly identifiable.

Custom printed packaging tape from Holmes Mann can reduce carton costs by removing the need to store large inventories of different printed boxes. Instead, you can buy plain cardboard boxes in different sizes and use your printed tape to identify them as belonging to your brand.

Branded printed tape can help trace packages that are lost in transit by making them instantly identifiable.

Customised printed tape can give a good impression to your customers, highlighting the professionalism of your business and giving them confidence that your attention to detail makes your company a good choice of supplier. Consumers should be impressed that you have made every effort to identify the product and protect the merchandise, and this should create a good impression and help to build confidence in both your business and your products.
