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

There is a danger that in the middle of the year, some way from the main gift-giving season, you might forget how useful cellophane tape is.

Imagine trying to wrap all those presents without these handy strips of tape to batten down the wrapping paper.

We mark Cellophane Tape Day in May, as it was patented on May 27th 1930.

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’.
