July 2013 I made a 4,000 mile journey across the country, having made that trip successfully without so much as one box fall apart or the tape peeling off, I am delighted that I purchased the Scotch Brand of Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape. Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape is reasonably priced, sure there are cheaper brands of packaging tape but as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for". Why settle for a cheaper quality of tape in the long run you won't be saving money if the tape does NOT stick or if the cheaper brand is hard to work with, even worse using twice the amount of packaging tape to ship your packages or move across the country trying to make sure the contents of the packages stays IN the package or box? So for me in the future I will be looking for my shipping supplies from Scotch I will NOT be settling for a "cheap brand to do my shipping. Satisfied Consumer - Virginia R.

As advertised, this tape starts easily. Unfortunately, that's the only good thing I can say about it. It sticks very poorly, rendering it almost useless as shipping tape. It also cuts very poorly using a standard shipping tape dispenser, perhaps because it comes off the roll so easily and thus doesn't provide enough tension for the dispenser to work. Ultimately, I'm extremely dissatisfied with this product.

Does not stay sealed

By Eliza

from North Carolina, United States

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

I am having the same issue that the other customer reviews have noted. Less than 24 hours after I sealed a box, the tape came unstuck. In one case, I taped a flat pack box in preparation for using it in a few days, and when I was ready to use it, the bottom had come completely unstuck even though I had used 3 strips of tape on the long side and I had also taped both short sides. Very disappointed! I will buy a different brand next time.

Doesn't stick after 24 hours!

By pfugar

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

I bought the dispenser and two 3-packs to prepare for our move. Boy, was that a mistake. ALL of the boxes I have taped up are ALL untapped. Not one has stuck. This tape is worthless for moving or storage. I would recommend a more expensive, heavier duty tape that will last. I should have looked at reviews before spending the money on this worthless tape.

Do not use this product

By Valerie

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

Ditto to the other reviews posted here. I'm in the process of packing an enormous number of boxes for moving and am experiencing all the tape coming off - thus I will need to spend money buying all new tape and re-taping 100+ boxes prior to our move in 3 days.

Waste of money and time

By mac64

from NJ, United States

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

Bought this tape in a 3 roll pack. Sorry now that i did. Not sticky enough, useless as a packaging tape. Worst feature is how easy tape comes off the roll. Picked it up and about 20 feet of tape on the floor as it rolled away.Had to buy different tape to complete the packing job. Stay away. You have been warned.Would have rated zero stars if possible.

If I have to pull the darn tape out before each time to tape a box, what good is the dispenser? I am so disgusted. Returning tomorrow and will never use again

Won't Stick to Moving Boxes!

By Louise

from Undisclosed

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

I packed several boxes and the next morning the tape is unstuck! What good is moving tape that won't stick to moving boxes? From other reviews, I see this has been going on for at least nine months. I bought this product because I thought it would be superior to the other ones on the shelf.

Waste of Money!!

By Among23

from Undisclosed

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

This tape was horrible! Said "long lasting" I taped up some brand new boxes with this stuff and within a few hours the tape just came off the box!! I have to go return it and buy something different because my belongings fell straight through the bottom of the box because this tape didn't hold at all!! Never buying this again.

Comments about Scotch Sure Start Easy Unwind Packaging Tape - 1 per roll:

I am packing for a major move so I have LOTS of boxes. Maybe I'm not using this stuff properly, but so far I think it's TERRIBLE! It doesn't stay down - I tape up a box and it seems nice and secure and then a day later the tape has come loose!! Basically, this products sucks! I am having to re-tape all my boxes!!!!!!!!!!!

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
