Are your Adhesives Causing Unnecessary Damage and Cost?

Get Organized

It’s important to effectively label your inventory to prevent shipping damages and support an efficient packaging process. Improving your organization can be as simple as investing in reliable labeling equipment. Your warehouse organization can also be improved by investing in tapes and adhesives that are designed with your packaging needs in mind. Efficient labeling, as well as reliable tapes and adhesives, will help your warehouse avoid bottlenecks, increase efficiency, and reduce damage.

Shipping Labels

Shipping labels that are applied incorrectly can lead to shipping delays, incorrect deliveries, and product damage. Applying labels in a secure, easy-to-notice space on your package will reduce damage and increase efficiency. Incorrect adhesives on your labels can cause labels to fall off, and increasing shipping cost from fines for reapplication. It can also cause customer frustration from lost packages and delayed shipping times.

These unnecessary expenses can add up quickly.


We can help you evaluate the best adhesive for your labels and make sure your equipment is running effectively no matter what size box or boxes you are using.

Tapes and Adhesives

Issues with tapes and adhesives can be a sticky mess. If you’re using the incorrect tape for the environment you’re working in you could run into issues with product damage and theft. For example, if you are working in a cold environment then you need different adhesive properties than if you are working in a warm environment, and if you are using recycled corrugated boxes, you need a tape with stronger adhesives than a virgin corrugated box because of the difference in the box fibers.

Tape heads and equipment can also cause unwanted bottlenecks in your packaging line if you’re experiencing tape breakage while the tape is on the machine.


We can help you determine if the tape that you are using has the correct adhesive properties for your environment and box fibers as well as help you address any equipment issues and bottlenecks you might be experiencing.
