Customer Reviews
Scotch® Tear-By-Hand Mailing Packaging Tape 3842, 1.88 in x 38.2 yd (48mm x 35 m) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy packaging tape I received a free sample from 3M, and with grandkids in college and one in the Military, I cannot live without this convenience now. It is Wonderfully Easy to ship off little CARE packages, with no measuring and scissors needed. This helps to make my life easier when sending packages. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tape ever! This is so easy to tear and use--I don't know why it's so hard to find in stores. I use it for all packing--never a problem. I use small sections as a lint remover, too--picks up animal hair off clothes better than anything I've ever found. Love this tape!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever! Love that it is so easy to use,,,I always had trouble with dispensers for large tape. This always tears perfectly. Works for everything,,, packages, crafts, to repair books and other items. It is hard to find in any store,,,I sure don't know why. I now order it on amazon and always have it on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of all but impossible to find! Best tape possible-no scissors needed-no tricky dispensers BUT IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND even in big city Los Angeles! Online merchants offer it in varying prices - beware low prices due to very small rolls. This should be sold EVERYWHERE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scotch Tear by Hand Mailing Tape [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The BEST tape I have ever used. I have been using it for years and I absolutely love it. If I run out (which I try not to do) it drives me crazy because I use it for everything! I use it for wrapping gifts, laminating small items, of course for shipping, I could go on and on. The only problem is the stores where I live stopped selling it and I have to order it online. Can't figure that one out because look at the reviews, everyone loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tear by Hand Tape [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This tape is so easy to use, works great at home for mailing packages and in my classroom for putting name tags on desks or putting up student work or posters.
