Key features

Carbon footprint

See how the carbon footprint of Sourceful’s self adhesive tape compares to a benchmark product.

How is this calculated?

Two carbon footprint comparisons between self adhesive tape and PVC tape, and self adhesive tape and PP tape.

Reduce your carbon footprint by up to 20%

-20% CO2e

Switching base material and adhesive from a typical PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) tape could reduce your carbon footprint by up to 20%.

-10% CO2e

Switching base material and adhesive from a typical BOPP (Biaxially Oriented PolyPropylene) tape could reduce your carbon footprint by up to 10%.

  1. Bk

    Brown kraft paper

    Unbleached paper made from virgin pulp. Brown kraft paper is the most sustainable material for this self adhesive tape. Ideal for simple, bold designs. Bright colours will appear more muted on brown kraft tape.
  2. Wk

    White kraft paper

    Bleached paper made from virgin pulp. White kraft paper has a higher carbon footprint than brown kraft paper but colours appear much brighter.
  3. 48


    48mm is the industry-standard width for tape. Suitable for the majority of use cases.
  4. 72


    72mm tape is stronger than 48mm but uses more material to produce. Ideal for heavier or wider packages as the tape covers a greater surface area.
  5. Sa

    Solvent-based adhesive

    Pressure-activated adhesive. Doesn’t need water or heat to adhere to packaging.
  6. Wb

    Water-based inks

    Made with water as their primary base, these inks are designed for flexographic printing. More sustainable than solvent-based inks.
  7. Cb

    Core board

    Used for the core of tape rolls. Core board allows tape to be handled, stored, transported and easily used. Core board is 100% recyclable.
  8. Sv

    Solvent-based varnish

    Varnish is applied to self adhesive tape to prevent it from adhering together when wound.

Supply chain assurance

A resilient, responsible supply chain


We validate all supplier claims and third-party certifications such as ISO, BRC and FSC. And we ensure suppliers adhere to UK and EU laws on chemicals and product components, like UK REACH. This allows businesses to confidently buy high-quality products that align with a net-zero trajectory.

Vetted suppliers

We visit and vet every supplier we work with. We use our code of conduct to do this, which defines what we consider to be ethical working conditions. To work with Sourceful, suppliers and their manufacturing sites must meet this code. We then review their practices every year.

Quality control

Every order from our suppliers undergoes a quality inspection process before it’s shipped. Any order that fails quality inspection is returned to the manufacturer or reproduced immediately.

For orders manufactured internationally (outside the UK) we follow the Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL) method defined by ISO standards in ISO 2859 - 1.

For domestic orders manufactured in the UK we align supplier quality control processes with our own, performing spot checks on the supplier’s products from each lot throughout the year.
