Just got my four packs. I see each roll is 50m long. My Costco rolls are 100m. I had assumed that they were both the same length. Should have checked this first.

While I'm a fan of Costco, the CP stuff is much better quality, and you don't have to buy 8 rolls. Also, this stuff is thicker, so if you aren't using it on a tape dispenser, it peels nicer, instead of it ripping before you get the full width started.

55M are pretty small rolls, I used to work for Intertape and we hated making those small rolls. I ran a Slitter, shown at the 3:10 mark in this video. The noise coming from one of those giant 5 foot wide rolls of tape running through the machine is incredibly loud.

Anyone know how much the Costco 8 pack of tape is?

So for about $2 more you get 800m instead of 400m of tape out of an 8-pack.

I've gone through about 15 rolls of the Costco stuff over the past few years (I mail a ton of parcels).

Will try some of the CP stuff and see if it does a significantly better job of sealing boxes, but I've never had any complaints about the Costco tape.

Ive been using the Costco tape for years and ship hundreds of parcels in a year. Its perfectly fine, no need for thicker tape.

I bought a pack about a year back, they are pretty good quality tape, no issues with quality or lack of adhesive.
I found Scotch 3M packing tape very strong glue. Year ago I run out of tape and bought it from Canadapost and quality is poor.
Costco sells 6 of 3M scotch tape for $12 or something and sometimes they put $3 or $4 off.
Have you used Scotch 3M packing tape as well and still prefer Canadapost tape?

Yes, I've used the Scotch 3M tape from Costco before. To me they are both the same, I don't find a difference. I use it to seal boxes and it does the job. The only time I've found that the quality of adhesive starts to suck is when you leave the tape sitting around too long. I had 3 rolls of Scotch 3M sitting on my shelf last year from a couple years back. One roll stuck to itself throughout so it was unusable and two of them would not adhere to anything once peeled from the roll.. The tape is a hit and miss kind of thing, as the adhesive I find has a undetermined shelf life

Someone posted it earlier...if you add 2 of the item but then edit the cart quantity back to 1, you get the lower price.
Are you sure? Didn't work for me.
