Blue Summit Supplies is still a small business, which means we sometimes make small mistakes. Occasionally we even make big ones, like the whiteboard incident.
But sometimes mistakes happen that are beyond our control – like adult tape.
What Is Adult Tape?
When we sell our supplies, they’re categorized to make it easier for customers to find us. That’s the idea, anyway.
But sometimes they categorize our products incorrectly, like flagging our clear packing tape as an ‘adult’ item.
Suffice it to say our tape wasn’t coming up in the searches we wanted it to, and it was another learning experience. As we worked to sort out this kink, we came up with some uses for our temporary line of adult tape.
Handling the Pipes
Got a leaky pipe under your sink? Don’t stress. Just slap some of our adult tape over it until you can get a handyman to help. There’s nothing more adult than forking over your hard-earned cash to fix the house you’re still making payments on.
Of course, you can always try fixing it yourself – but make sure you have several rolls of adult tape on hand before picking up that wrench.
If you’re the outdoorsy type, use our adult tape to go on a riverboat adventure. You can tape a pallet of empty water bottles together and set sail across your local creek or retention pond!
Just grab about 100 empty plastic bottles and tape them all together tightly, creating a surface wide enough for you to lie on. Then, rethink your life choices and throw the entire thing in the recycling bin, since this is incredibly unsafe and rafting across retention ponds is probably illegal.
Adulthood doesn’t haveto be dull – you can spend it making art!
Creating packing tape masterpieces isn’t as tricky as it looks. All you need is a friend, focus, and rolls and rolls of our adult tape.
First, have the friend hold still, and begin to wrap the desired part of the body (or all of it) up in several layers of tape. Then, when it’s thick and feels stiff, cut your friend free. Voila! Adult art!
Clear packing tape can be just for you, too. Indulge in some ‘me time’ with our adult tape.
Grab all the random stuff you’ve been meaning to ‘store’ and cozy up with your adult tape and some cardboard boxes. Maybe put on a relaxing movie – our Director of Marketing Shannon Miller recommends cozy classic The Notebook. Then, get to packing and sealing. Those boxes will be ready for the back corner of your attic in no time.
Thankfully, the era of ‘adult’ tape has ended. Our clear packing tape is labeled as it should be and once again easy to find for our customers. But it was funny while it lasted, and we learned a lot, which is always valuable here at Blue Summit Supplies.
