Ordinary packing tape takes on a whole new dimension when printed with pretty or clever designs. We've put together an international collection of designer packing tapes that were too cool not to share. Designer packing tape has been known to go out of stock frequently due to demand and limited print quantities. Still, we hope you'll find this comprehensive resource useful.
