Tape Customization FAQs - Graphic

With over 30 years of experience, we’ve just about seen it all at Walker Tape Converting. Working with a variety of different businesses and projects, we have seen first-hand what it takes to turn even the most ambitious of products into a success.


As you can imagine, we have run into quite a few questions, some more frequent than others, many regarding our tape customization service. Here are just a few.


What is Walker Tape Converting?


We are a family-owned company that specializes in die cutting, lamination, packaging, relinering, sheeting, and slitting. We are experts in everything tape, and can use our 30 years of experience to help guide your project to success.


What sets Walker Tape Converting apart from other converters?


There are two ways in which Walker Tape stands apart from the competition.


The first is with our journey and our expertise. Over the years, we have finely tuned what you, the customer, are looking for: quality products, fast lead times, fair prices and a top-tier customer service experience. Our family-owned and -operated business can provide innovative, tailored solutions to even your most challenging products.


The second differentiator is with our suppliers. We have a wide variety of relationships with the top adhesive companies such as 3M, Avery Dennison, Mactac, Berry Plastics and Scapa. This provides a truly unique experience. We can mix and match suppliers to create a unique solution that perfectly fits your needs.


Which industries does Walker Tape work with?


We work with the aerospace, construction, electronics, industrial and medical industries. If you are involved with an industry that is not on that list, reach out to us! Our capabilities can extend to nearly any adhesive project. We can provide services to nearly any project in any industry — if it involves tape, we have a solution.


Is it possible to get a custom solution for my product?


Yes! That’s really at the heart of what we offer. Many converters work with just one tape manufacturer. At Walker, we have preferred relationships with the top three tape manufacturers in the world, tesa®, Avery Dennison and 3M, in addition to relationships with several other manufacturers, including Mactac, Berry Plastics and Scapa. This allows us to create tailored solutions that will fit your needs perfectly.


How do I know I need a custom solution?


It’s time to explore a custom solution if what you’ve been doing isn’t quite working, if you feel you’re bending your needs to the capabilities (or lack thereof) of a single brand of tape, if you’re dissatisfied with your current solution or if you’re curious about what a custom solution can do for you.


What types of custom solutions does Walker Tape offer?


We can work with you to customize tape and adhesive solutions to fit your needs. Contact one of our experts to learn everything we can do for you.


What are the different capabilities you have to customize solutions?


We have a wide range of capabilities, including die cuttinglaminationpackagingrelineringsheeting and slitting.


How do you customize solutions?


Working with multiple manufacturers, we know what each variety of tape can do. We can combine tapes from different manufacturers to create a solution that doesn’t currently exist and will be tailored to your specific needs.


Does the type of machines used in customization matter?


Yes! Our machinery is one of the facets of our business that make us unique. More than 30 years ago, our founder, Brent Bonham, thought there had to be a better way to produce innovative products by building custom machinery.

Is it more expensive to customize a solution?


No! That’s a common misconception. Because we have relationships with so many suppliers, we can offer our customers the best prices on all the solutions we supply.


What is the lead time for a project?


We can provide a lead time of as little as one to two weeks. It all depends on the size and complexity of your order, and we provide accurate lead times as early as possible in the project cycle.


How do we start the process?


We make it as easy and convenient as possible to start a partnership with Walker Tape. To start, contact us directly to give us more information about your project. Information such as project size, adhesive requirements, special features and any other variable is useful. We have worked with customers who come to us with just an idea, and can do the same for your business.
