Cotton bookbinding tape ~ unbleached ~ starched ~ 19mm wide ~ sold by the metre
Cotton tape ~ starched ~16mm wide ~priced per metre
Cotton tape such as this stiffened 19mm wide tape is used for bookbinding, and is also available in several narrower widths ~ 10 ~ 13 ~ 16 and also ~ 25mm.
This listing is for starched tape that is 19mm wide. The stiffening of the starch allows the tape to be handled more easily, especially if sewing without a frame. This tape is slightly off-white or "natural".
Unstarched cotton tape ~ listed separately ~ has other uses such as ties for portfolios, or for bundling papers (as in a solicitor's office). All the tapes we sell are of acid-free quality.
Pricing is per metre, and carriage is extra. Very short sample lengths will travel as a Letter ~ greater lengths will require the Large Letter rate because of the thickness of a bundle.
