Good Things Come With Better Packages.
Better Packages, LLC was the innovator of gummed tape dispensers used for carton sealing in 1917. Before then companies used twine, glue, or staples to close boxes. Manufacturing started in 1921 in Shelton, Connecticut.
For over 40 years the BP555S and BP333 models served businesses well delivering value and increasing the security and safety of cartons being shipped. The advantages of gummed tape are found on our web page Advantages of Gummed Tape.
