Call it Joseph tape. Or technicolor tape. From Duck®, this striped plastic tape is 1-7/8” wide on a 22-yard roll with a 1-1/2” core. Stripes are purple, red, blue, yellow and green with some narrow intervening white stripes, not to be confused with the band of the same name. Feels like that “Do Not Break Seal” tape, but more festive.
Once upon a time a buffoonish copywriter asked why this spool of 3M Scotch tape was yellow with a subtle pattern of little flowers on it. Because it’s pretty, he was told. So there. Our each is 300” of the 3/4” wide pretty stuff on a 1” core, which is your standard tape dispenser size.
Finally, plaid duct tape. We think this is Clan MacNeon tartan because of the digital red, yellow, blue and green pattern. You get a 10-yard roll of approx 2" wide tape.
Gray is for grown-ups. This duct tape is made for the young at heart. You’ll get (30) feet of 1-7/8” wide duct tape on a 3” core. You pick: aqua, chain-link fence/skyline, red, yellow, pink cupcake, translucent white or olive drab.
Our each is a 4-pack of standard-size glue sticks--acid-free, non-toxic, multi-purpose, washable, safe, strong and cheap and we don't know what else you could possible ask for in a glue stick.
Gray is for taping ducts. You need something completely different, which is why we invite you to amp up your tape inventory with: the extra-lovely (30) feet of black tape with red lipstick kiss marks to fix your ’80s rock gear; or (10) feet of 1-7/8” wide glow-in-the-dark medical tape so you can see what you fixed at night.
Nothing beats double sided glue tape for mounting pics, art and documents. Lay down a line of stickiness, and Bob’s your mother’s brother. This glue tape is acid-free and 5/16” wide x really, really thin--the way it should be. In a plastic dispenser. You pick the 195” (16+ feet), the 390” (32+ feet) or the 1170” (97+ feet).
Double-sided foam mounting tape, photo-safe, from the tape kings at 3M. This spool measures 1/2” wide x .054” thick, and you’ll get 150” of it. Rated to hold up to a 2-lb load. At this price, grab two and start taping.
