Customer Reviews
Scotch® Shipping Packaging Tape is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won’t stick! Very frustrated. We are packing moving boxes and the tape is not sticking to the new cardboard boxes at all! What happened to the quality? We have used this tape for years without issues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from packing tape I have used this tape many times for mailing packages and many times have had the frustration of the end sticking to the roll. When trying to find the end this time it rendered the roll useless. I threw it away. There has to be a better way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TAPE NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE Been using this stuff forever now, it appears to be brittle. Little pieces end up on my fingers while using a Scotch Tape Dispenser. Not a fan anymore.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from used to be great tape Background: worked for a company that did a lot of work for 3M and the shipping tape was the only tape to use. Now tape is worthless, doesn't stick to cardboard. Press on box and tape released leaving box open. Have to wrap it around the box like stretch wrap. What happened?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just doesn’t stick like it used to. We recently used several rolls of packaging and shipping tape in a move. The tape just doesn’t stick like it did in the past. Disappointing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from We did consider the "Scotch" brand to be best tape We buy this tape every so often to seal product boxes for shipment. We buy product #3650. I know that tape is ridiculously high priced now, but I worry about the sticking power. How much pressure do we have to put on the tape to keep it sticking through shipping. I'm lucky to get the tape to stick for an hour after we put it on, and that is with extra force on the tape 2 or 3 times on clean brand new corrugated tan boxes. Back in the 70's and 80's we used sell 3m tape. What ever happen to the quality. Is this any better than the store brand tapes? Sincerely, getting more and more disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 20X Tape Will Not Stick I bought a roll of Scotch Shipping Packaging Tape that is useless because it won't stick to anything. This roll is labeled 20X stronger. I then bought another roll labeled 40X stronger, which works fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't stick This is the worst tape I have ever used. I recently moved and over 80% of my boxed popped open because this tape DOES NOT STICK.
