You only need a pair of scissors and a smidgeon of time to get your last-minute gifts out the door!
Featuring proprietary adhesive technology, the gray side of 3M’s Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll securely sticks only to itself. Seriously, it won’t stick to the items you’re shipping or your fingers or anything else—just itself—so you can create a package in whatever size and shape you need.
No boxes, no packing peanuts and no tape required. In fact, you could even skip the gift wrap if you opt for the limited-edition red holiday version! The built-in cushion layer and waterproof, tear-resistant exterior film add just the right amount of protection to know that your items will arrive to your recipient without a hitch.
3M recommends using the Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll for non-fragile items and to “fold and press like a calzone” for the best seal. You can also press along the edges of the items inside for a custom padded fit that stays put. The package can be opened just like a standard shipping envelope, either peel apart the edge or use scissors, and it can be recycled at most plastic bag recycling locations.
“This stuff is amazing and ingenious. So easy to use,” says Amazon reviewer Wes. “I always have an item that doesn’t quite fit in a certain envelope or box (whether too large or too small), and this is the perfect solution. The adhesive is very strong and creates a solid water-tight seal. I will order again once my first roll runs out.”
The 3M Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll is available in 10, 20, 50 and 200 ft. sizes.
