    A suggestion. When taping the top of a box, take the first tape across, not along. This way you can use the tape to pull closed the gap, repeat two more, so you are starting with three bands firmly closing the top as well as securing it. A second point…If there is the slightest chance of exposure to damp en route, then overlap some of the tape closing the top with the wrap-around ends of the bottom tapes. Plastic tape sticks like hell to plastic tape but loses its grip on the slightest of damp cardboard.

    When it comes to taping the bottom of the box, more is better. Especially if you are packing heavy items. It stinks to pick up a box and have everything fall out the bottom, especially if the items are breakable. My suggestion is 3 pieces minimum on the bottom for security.
