  • Tape Project Box Labels Peeling ?

    On the outer box spine ? Every couple weeks I have to push the clear label flat over the title image, ect. Anyone find a good solution to keep the label flat and attached ? TIA.

    My tape boxes from the TP started falling apart as soon as they arrived and I'm not talking about the labels.

      Yep, it happens.
      Get a glue stick, it will work just apply it liberally and hold the loose paper down somehow till it dries.
      Can be time consuming but keeps the proper look of your expensive tapes in tact.

        Yup, those gold spine labels don't stay stuck. Ever. I laminated over them.

            Funny you bring this up Christian since that exact thing crossed my mind the other day. Two out of all my TTP tapes--the Elling and Smith--have peeling labels. No way to restore them either since they've really peeled back. Couple of other tape boxes had the cover coming off the top of the box but that is easily glued back glued back.

              I just checked all my TP boxes. SInce I was a charter subscriber from early on (#45) I have all the tapes issued so far, and tend to get one of the early ones made. So I have been lucky (or maybe it is the climate in Northern California) and no problems with any stickers or boxes. I think that TP contracts out to get the boxes made somewhere. Probably one of us should contact Paul or Romo to let them know that there is a problem with at least some of the boxes and stickers.

                The last tape Eileen sent me recently was Canned Heat and it clearly is a better box and I do not see anything coming up on it at all.
                It also feels completely different than the others, no doubt.
                I think they fixed the issue on these latest boxes.
