Scotch Magic Tape
Advantages: Its invisible
Disadvantages: Its expensive
I have always bought my sticky tape from cheap pound shops but just before Christmas last year I was looking to buy a tape dispenser to make wrapping presents easier. I looked on Amazon and bought one which came with 3 rolls of Scotch Magic Tape and I was amazed at the difference. Obviously cheap sticky tape isn't going to be the quality of expensive branded tape but I didn't realise how much difference there would actually be.
Scotch Magic Tape can be bought in many high street shops and I have picked mine up in Tesco when I'm doing my shopping. Here it costs £5.50 for a refill pack of 3 rolls, you can get this slightly cheaper online but for me its convenient to buy it from Tesco. The rolls are just attached to a simple piece of card which tells the customer that the tape is just under 2 cm's wide and 25 meters in length. It also says that the tape is invisible and can be written on.
As I mentioned up until last year I had only ever bought cheap sticky tape, 4 rolls for a pound usually and although this was alright I did find it very hit and miss as to what type of paper it would actually stick to. The nice thing about the Scotch Magic Tape is that it will stick to just about everything which is very handy when it comes to wrapping gifts which is something I am totally obsessive about, for me Christmas and birthday presents are all about the wrapping as much as the gift. I spend a small fortune on paper, ribbons and many other decorative bits and pieces so I was particularly pleased with this tape as not only does it stick really well but it has a matt finish rather than shiny which makes it virtually invisible, this also makes the tape ideal for mending paper tears and also it has been designed not to yellow with age which is something most other sticky tapes do. The tape can also be written on making it ideal if you are actually posting a parcel and as its nice and strong your parcel should be secure and not burst open.
Despite the price I would certainly recommend the Scotch Magic Tape, I have a dispenser that the roll sits in but if you don't have one of these the tape cuts nice and clean with scissors and its always easy to find the end, no more pulling off loads of in bits until you find the end of the tape. This would be ideal for the office or for school or college work, it gives a more professional clean finish than regular tape. It has so many uses and is a product that I will certainly continue to use.
Summary: A good quality sticky tape
