OK, now you have decided you want a Hannibal tape dispenser or a Black and Blum tape dispenser. A beautiful, well-designed tape dispenser is on your desk and you are going to spend your valuable time taping torn books and other important papers. So are you fixing them temporarily, and years from now expecting to put up with cracking and discoloration? No, you are fixing them permanently. That’s the whole point. Anything worth fixing with clear tape is worth fixing with archival, acid-free scrapbook tape. That’s fixed for good. Unless you are just doing something temporary, like gift-wrapping a present. You can use regular tape for that.
