This wiki has been updated 19 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Water activated, or gum tape, dispensers offer all the packing benefits you've been looking for. They increase productivity, help curtail waste, and prevent repetitive strain injuries caused by standard guns. These machines fall into two main categories: manual and electric. You'll find both here, in a range that will accommodate a variety of volume requirements and budgets. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 28, 2018:

Examined models by top manufacturer Better Packages, selecting the 333 Plus as a robust choice that's appropriate for low to medium volumes and the 555eSA for those with large shipping needs. Also added the Marsh Manual as a strong alternative to the 333 Plus as well as two low-cost pull-and-tear models, the Paper Mart Kraft and Packer 3s, for tighter budgets.
