Tape Art? You need to see it to believe it!

Remember Forrest Gump’s best friend, Bubba, sharing his knowledge about the shrimp business during the movie, Forrest Gump? “There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger and shrimp sandwich...” Bubba could talk forever about shrimp.

We understand that level of fixation. At A&M Tape & Packaging we could talk forever about tape.

As we like to say, “There’s a tape for that,” and if you let us, we’ll give you a Bubba-style run-down on tape available for everything from prepping walls for painting to securing packaging for a cross-country trip to China. And we sell it all.

There’s Scotch® tape, painters tape, masking tape, double-sided tape, and extra-strong or extra-quiet packing tape. That last one is Lucky Dog™ Silent, our all-bite, no-bark packing tape introduced earlier this year. Customers love it.

There’s also blue tape, red tape, yellow tape and specially designed tape with your company logo on it. There’s plain brown packing tape, dull black-colored duct tape, and shiny colored duct tape kids use to make wallets.

You can use tape to mend, fix, highlight, prepare, cover, protect, adhere, label, close, waterproof and secure. You can even use tape to create.

Artist Max Zorn caught our eye when his story ran on CNN. He uses brown packing tape and a utility knife to create scenes detailing the shores of Hong Kong, the streets of New York City and even vintage portraits. Take a peek at some of his work below.



Amazing, right?

Artist Mark Jenkins prefers using transparent tape to create life-sized sculptures like the one below. He places the pieces in unexpected places, like the park, hanging from a billboard or sticking out of a garbage dumpster.


Then there’s a trio of artists with the firm Numan/For Use, based in Germany. They created a packing tape cobweb using 530 rolls of transparent adhesive tape. Check out the photo and video below to see and hear the adhesive tape artwork from the inside out.



Whether you’re an aspiring tape artist who needs to stock up for that next big project or a business ready to create your own packing tape – we can do that, too – MrBoxOnline is the place to go.
