Paper Banding

What is paper banding? Banding is a form of wrapping of materials that holds them together, making them easier to handle, transport, and store. Also called bundling or paper taping, banding is done with a long strip of sturdy paper that is wrapped and sealed (or tied) around your material using a special paper banding machine. This machine can be a handheld press or an electric or more automated solution. Paper banding creates a visible stripe of color across your material, so can also serve as additional marketing with a printed banding strip (sometimes called a belly band). Depending on the size of your stack to bundle, you may want to add a single banded strip, a double, or more.


Paper banding is often called the best way to bundle paper and media, since it can help protect your materials, is sustainable, is simple, and offers additional marketing opportunities, without a high price point. With a banding machine and paper banding strips, you can quickly discover a faster and easier way to package your products with a simple strip.
