How do I use water-activated paper tape?

Water activated paper tape is very simple to use once you get the hang of it! 

  1. Cut a strip of tape to your desired length.
  2. Dampen the adhesive side with a wet sponge. It doesn't need to be soaked - just enough to make the underside sticky. Make sure the whole length of your tape is wet - any patches that aren't wet won't become sticky. 
  3. Apply the tape to your packaging and smooth down. Water-activated paper tape is not suitable for use on coated or glossy surfaces (e.g. poly mailers, glossy boxes, etc) as the water activated adhesive needs a porous surface to effectively dry and permanently bond with the fibres of the cardboard, creating a super secure seal.
