Customer Reviews
Scotch® Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The tape is fine, but... I bought a roll of this “easy to unwind” Scotch tape, hoping to avoid the continual battles with the regular tape being almost impossible to find the end to get started. This tape, although it has a gentler adhesive, is packaged so that the very thin and tight wrapping is almost impossible to find and get started. There are no indications or directions that this type is shrink wrapped with a very hard to see or feel cellophane wrapper. Took me many minutes of scratching and trying to guess how to get into the actual tape roll. Really nasty, and should have a starter flap that is easy to pull up and unwind the covering. Very, very frustrating. You’d think Scotch by now would have a handle on this, but not this time. The tape seems fine though

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible!!! This tape does not stick and I do not trust it enough to send packages through the mail. The tape easily lifts off the roll sure enough, but once on the package it easily lifts off the package. The tape is unfortunately, quite useless for mailing packages and I couldn't imaging that it would be useful for anything....maybe Christmas wrapping paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to find where it starts and therefore easy to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't stick to any boxes. Is there glue on it? Bought a three pack after my heavy duty ran out. Getting ready to move some thing to my business. I can't get the stuff to stick to cardboard moving boxes. It peels right off like there isn't any glue on the tape. It's terrible. It also falls off as you're moving packed boxes. I don't know if I received a lemon batch, but it's bad. Going back to heavy duty or possibly another brand. I have no confidence this will secure a small box of books. Save it for your doll collections

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Packing Tape [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was given this product in exchange for my honest opinion. Being an avid online shopper I am constantly in need of packing tape to return items that didn't fit right or were damaged on arrival. This tape is perfect. True to the advertising it is easy to find the end each time and I didn't feel the need to fold it over for the next use. I had a plastic packing tape holder and tried this both on the holder and without. Of course the holder had a cutting tool on it which made the process even easier. This is not tape that you can tear with your bare hands - just like every other packing tape. It held well and did exactly what I needed it to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Easy to Uses [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Scotch Sure Start Shipping Tape doesn't get all raveled up like other shipping tape I've purchased before did. Instead the tape is easier to get started and much easier to work with. I sell things online and ship them so having something that makes that process easier is a blessing. I highly recommend this product if you ship anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietest packing tape every [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this in exchange for a fair and honest review. I sell a lot of items on ebay and therefore ship a lot of items. This is the best packing tape I have used. It comes onto the package smoothly and quietly. No tugging and pulling to get it to unroll.
