Ship in Style This Holiday Season With EZ Start® Printed Packaging Tapes

New Patterns Help Bring Holiday Cheer to Packages

AVON, OH--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - This holiday season, imagine if the packaging used to send gifts could have as much personality as the gift itself. Thanks to ShurTech Brands, LLC, marketers of Duck® brand products, your package can show its true colors with decorative and trendy packaging tapes.

With the new Duck brand EZ Start® Printed Packaging Tapes, packages can now reflect the nature of the gift, the personality of your recipient or your own personal style. In addition to "everyday prints," including Black Olives, Pink Zebra, Tie Dye and Green Peace, EZ Start Prints are now available in two new festive, holiday patterns:

  • Reindeer Games: a whimsical, young-at-heart tape with a bright green background and deer characters spotted here and there with a red nose.
  • Cinnamon Snow: a traditional holiday pattern of warm red(s) and green stripes accented by a white snowflake.

These stylish tapes are ideal for embellishing presents and can be an unexpected alternative to traditional wrapping paper and ribbon. Use a holiday print to show some seasonal spirit or an "everyday" pattern to add some creativity to gifts; wrap that martini glass in Black Olives, send a stuffed animal with a bit of pink safari flair or bring someone back to their hippie days with Tie Dye and Green Peace tapes.

EZ Start prints can also be used for crafting and art projects, holiday party and event decorations or just as a fun product to have around the house for everyday needs.

Available in 15-yard rolls that are 1.88 inches wide, EZ Start Prints meet all postal regulations, unroll smoothly and easily and resist splitting and tearing. Pattern edges can even be matched to provide a continuous design.

New EZ Start holiday prints are available at Walmart, Staples and Pat Catan's for a suggested retail price of $3.00. "Everyday prints" are available at AC Moore, Dollar General, Fred Meyer, JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores, Staples, Walgreens and Walmart (availability varies by store).
