I have been trying to find someone to manufacture adhesive tape with a print on it, such as polka dots, etc. I haven`t been able to find anyone who can provide this service. I don`t need packing tape - I need something like electrical tape - Any ideas - I have contacted several people from Alibaba with no success.
I need the tape to wrap around a cane or crutches and I want it to be continuous. I want it to cover the whole thing.
ahhhh.....well they do make rolled horizontal stickers, would that work?
Anything is possible! I have checked with 3M on partnering on this product. They have the technology and the "big guns" to get it done. However, they will not even talk with me until I have a provisional patent, which I am working on. By the way, what if I can`t get a patent? Should I give up or continue with finding a supplier for my product?
I haven`t look into that. Maybe I should. Thanks for the suggestion.
oh thomas register..... I used to work for them. Man that was slave labor, LOL. Talk about cranking through work! Print ads, websites, flash videos.....But yeah they are a great resource.
It sounds like it would be a design patent, since you`re not actually making the tape, just the design on the tape. Those are easy to get b/c as long as your design doesn`t exactly match one already in existence, you get it. So make those polka dots unique! Problem is, if someone changes the design in the slightest, they won`t be infringing on your patent. There are lots of patent lawyers on this site, they can tell you more abt this than I can. Good luck.
