Best tape for shipping boxes

I have a small e-commerce business and I find myself wasting a lot of tape because it doesn't stick to the boxes very well. I would love some alternative options!

Paper tape is so great and sticks very well! I also prefer heavier plastic tape when I have to use plastic because it comes off the roll easy, and is easier to get re-started if you lose the edge. The thin stuff is a time waster and sanity-taker.

There is also an ecofriendly shipping tape. I dont recall the name but a simple search should bring it up online. :)

What are you mailing in? I just use regular packing tape

I'm with Amy Woidtke on this--heavier packing tape is my go-to because I'm ready to destroy things with the thinner tape. I would just recommend sticking to a name brand, since, in my experience, the generics have less adhesion.

Scotch Heavy Duty Packaging Tape has worked consistently well for us for a variety of shipping services, including international shipping to India and China.
