Office Supplies...

More to the point I am looking for "Packing Tape", we are using a lot of this stuff and Office Depot is getting way to rich for our liking, we use a case of this every month or so.

Does anybody work at place where they sell commercial packing tape at good prices or know of a place that sells it cheap? It can't be of ****ty quality, otherwise, you just use more of it.

ragster... whatcha got?

We almost never need boxes since we receive packages on a daily basis but we sure go through a lot of packing tape. how exactly do you buy from this people? I didn't see a shopping cart.

Oh and the most important thing, how in the hell do I choose from so many of them? I mean, I know that I go to office depot, grab a box of their own brand and I am good to go. It is not the best tape out there for sure but it does the biz (see link below). I am looking for something a bit better but I didn't see a price in the shurtape.com website either.

http://www.officedepot.com/a/product...Tape-x-55-Tan/

This link takes you to the prepackaged ones, I buy them in bulk so they are a lot less money than those but I can't find the link for it.

Here it is... http://www.officedepot.com/a/product...pe-x-55-Clear/

You can get it via U line, but, we have found if you go right to them , you "cut out the middle man "

According to the size charts, they only sell it in pallets? I have a funny feeling this is not what we are looking for. I mean, we use a lot but not enough to warrant buying a pallet full

P.S.: so, 1.6 to 1.7 mil is enough for packaging parts & accessories?

Used to work at a place that resold tape and different supplies, just called a friend and left a voice mail will put him in touch with you if you like when he calls back. Unsure if he will be competitive or not. But I remember if you tell them you can get this price here, if they can beat it they would. Here is the main website. Echo Supply

This is the exact tape I use. I buy it a case at a time and it comes with a free dispenser if you buy a case.

Lasts me about a year.

Well, I am paying about 42.00 bucks for the Office depot one (tax included), the one from Uline will be like $ 54.90 (no tax but I am sure there will be shipping charges). Even if Free shipping, I am paying a lot more from Uline than I would if I get from Office Depot... I guess I am better off?

Probably better sticking with the Office Depot if you're happy with it.

Uline's cheapest 1.7mil x 55yds is $1.05 per roll if you order one case (36). Cheaper if you order multiple, but that depends on how much you really ship.

You know this is all crap! He uses the tape to wrap-up his cats, chickens, and rats so they don't explode or break apart when he's f...ing them.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Dude. I'll just grab a case out of the supply closet here and send it down.


EDIT: Dude, I don't know anything about packing tape. So I'm not going to find a deal, it'd probably be some junk without me knowing.

How do I go about ordering a case of those? I will like to try them, anything has to be better than the Office Depot ones I am using.
