Stationery tape is the tape commonly found in offices for general purpose use. It is also known as cello, cellophane tape, or sticky tape. This kind of stationery tape is used for repairing torn paper, putting together paper projects and posters, sealing envelopes, and arts and crafts, among other uses.
Stationery tape comes in a variety of widths. The most common widths include 12mm, 18mm, and 24mm. The tape is mounted on a core that is usually 1 or 3 inches in diameter (~2.5 cm or ~7.6 cm). If the tape is bought for a permanent dispenser, it is important that both the core size and the width be a good match for the dispenser to work properly.
