Types of Tape Printing Services We Offer

At TPC, we offer a wide range of tape printing services to meet the specific needs of our clients.

Flexographic Printing

This is a high-volume printing method that uses flexible plates and fast-drying inks to deposit graphics on flexible substrates. It is ideal for large runs of identical tapes of up to three colors.

Inkjet Printing

This digital printing method uses inkjet technology to produce high-quality images. Inkjet printing reduces the expenses associated with printing plates while increasing design freedom. This method is best for single-color prints of variable and sequential information.

Thermal Printing

Thermal printing uses heat to transfer the design onto the tape. It’s great for printing barcodes, serial numbers, sequential information, and other information in short runs.

Foil Stamping

Foil stamping applies a thin layer of foil to a tape to create a metallic, holographic, or pearlescent finish. It enhances the appearance of printed packaging labels, display materials, flexible packaging, and more.

Custom Box Tape Printing

We offer custom printed tape to fulfill your boxes’ branding, messaging, and tamperproof needs. Compared to custom printing the boxes themselves, custom tape printing is a more affordable and versatile way to promote your brand through your packaging.

Custom Label Printing

We provide custom label printing services for various applications, including product and warning labels. Customized labels for boxes let you add important information to your products.

Custom Bag Printing

Add logos, messages, or handling instructions to your poly bags or sheeting through custom printing bags. Our custom bag printing services feature scuff-resistant coatings and Pantone color matching.

Tape Printing Process

We strive to make the tape printing process as simple and streamlined as possible for our clients. Here’s an overview of the process you can expect when working with us.

Design Creation

Our team will work with you to create a design that meets your aesthetic and functional requirements. We can assist with creating a design from scratch or using a design you provide.

Design Proofing

After completing the design, we will provide you with a digital representation of your custom tape product. This proof will show you what the final product will look like with your finalized design. The design and proofing processes are value-added services we offer to ensure that the final product meets your expectations.

Proof Approval

Once you have reviewed the proof, we will require your approval before moving to the next production stage.


After receiving your approval, we will begin producing your custom tape products. We use state-of-the-art tape printing presses to ensure the highest quality results, maximum efficiency, and quick turnarounds.


Upon completion of production, we will ship your custom tape products to the location of your choice. We offer various shipping options to ensure your product arrives on time and in pristine condition.

Common Complications With Printing Services

While tape printing can be a great way to enhance branding, market your products, and add an extra layer of security, there are a few common complications that customers should be aware of.


Pilfering refers to the theft of small items of high value, including stealing parts of packaged products. To combat this, companies should use printed or branded tapes, as it becomes the standard expectation. If the tape is removed and replaced with non-branded tape, it can indicate tampering. This evidence is crucial to identifying and addressing pilferage issues before they adversely affect your brand.

Lack of Branding

When a company is not properly branding its products, its efforts are going to waste. On the other hand, a strong brand knows when its branding efforts are effective and paying off. Branded tapes are a crucial part of building a strong brand.
