What is noissue tape made out of?
noissue tape is made from 100% recycled paper!
It's also FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper. This means it is sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably.
Furthermore, the tape adhesive is water-activated (and non-toxic), meaning that the surface isn’t coated in wax to prevent sticking - another environmental benefit that also makes our tape compostable!
How do I apply my water-activated tape?
Simply wet the non-toxic adhesive backing and apply!

noissue Tape Dispenser
Our manual tape dispenser makes applying noissue Tape a breeze! It can hold all of our sizes of tape and is currently only available to our US customers.We will be releasing this worldwide soon.
Can my noissue Tape have a continuous design?
We print our tape using plates that are 38cm in length, therefore it is only possible to have a design that is this size repeating. Due to the fact that we use plates, there is also a very subtle line at the end of each plate.
This is only visible on some designs, ask our team about this and we can advise on how best to mitigate!
What materials work best with noissue Tape?
noissue Tape works best with cardboard or paper products such as kraft mailers/envelopes, plain cardboard boxes or paper bags.
If there is quite a lot of ink on your cardboard box and it has a glossy shine to it, our tape will find it much harder to form a bond so it would be best to order some samples first to test this!
Unfortunately, we do not recommend using our tape with noissue Compostable mailers as it is very hard for the adhesive to form a bond with this material.
Our stickers, on the other hand, work really well!
Is noissue Tape reinforced?
Our tape is super strong and can hold up to 30kgs per package and even better, there is no plastic or fibreglass running through our tape, meaning it is not reinforced.
