Atlantic Paper & Supply supplies water activated and pressure sensitive custom printed tapes; both with very low order minimums.   Custom printed tapes are ideal for displaying branding and important company information.

How To Order Printed Tape

 It’s very easy to get started.   If you already know what you want to have printed, simply send the artwork to customersrvc@atlanticpaper.com and in a few days, you will receive a proof for approval.  The same process holds true for either pressure sensitive or water activated tape.  Ten standard ink colors are available:  Reflex Blue, Process Blue, Red, Black, Green, Orange, Yellow, Burgundy, Gray and Brown.

Water Activated Tape

Water Activated Tape can be custom printed in up to 3 colors and is available in non-reinforced, medium grade reinforced, heavy (ultra) reinforced or Extra Heavy reinforced.   The minimum order is 5 cases for any custom printed water activated tape.  Water-activated tape bonds instantly to recycled boxes and even dusty surfaces.  It is 100% recycled and re-pulpable.

Pressure Sensitive Tape

Pressure sensitive tape is available with two substrates; polypropylene or PVC.  Polypropylene is the cost effective alternative to printed vinyl tape (PVC).  It is tough with high impact resistance, and is available in 1.9 mil, 2.5 mil.  PVC tape is known for its high quality adhesion, low noise application and excellent printing properties.  Standard thickness is 2.2 mil.
