What’s better than a roll of duct tape? 8.5″x11″ sheets of duct tape, of course, especially if you’re making large repairs — like patching up a tarp or tent — where multiple strips of the normal stuff tend to peel off.  According to manufacturer Intertape Polymer Group, you can either slap these on whole for maximum coverage or cut them to shape for the best fit.

Besides their unique size, DuctSheetz act pretty much like the duct tape you know and love.  They’re available in 10 packs of both 8-1/2″ x 11″ and 4″ x 4″ sheets with street pricing of $7 and $5 respectively, and you can find them via a variety of online vendors.  And if you’ve just gotta have one today you can find them at Northern Tool.  (Sorry for no manufacturer link — they only show their products directly in a huge PDF catalog.)

Note: When we were creating the Amazon link for this item we also stumbled across inkjet printable 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheets of duct tape from another company.  They’re incredibly expensive at $32 for a five-pack — and honestly we couldn’t think of a use for them — but we thought we’d tell you about them anyway.  You never know when this might be just the thing for some crazy project.

    Obviously this stuff is made for taping the nose on a “special” Monte Carlo more than it’s made for taping your tent. I wonder if it comes in Budweiser Red?

    At one time, I had a 1000 pound roll of 4′ wide duct tape in a shop I worked in. The real problem we had was unpeeling a section – it took several people. It did fix an entire leaky canoe on with one piece though. (TV show prop)

    I’ve seen this size called “100mph tape”, or race tape over here in Australia – it’s used for keeping race cars together after non-terminal altercations 🙂
