Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Cellophane Tape Day

The first brand of cellophane tape was developed by Richard Drew, a 3M engineer, and was called “Scotch” tape and now bears a very recognizable trademark of a red, black, and green tartan pattern. The term came about in 1925 when a body shop painter who was testing one of the first masking tapes and announced in frustration “Take this tape back to those Scotch bosses of yours and tell them to put more adhesive on it!” Scotch at the time being a slang term for ‘stingy’.

Drew received the patent for his tape on this day in 1930.
