Scotch Tape (Jun, 1960)

Origins of the matte Scotch Tape we all know and love.

NON REFLECTIVE TAPE for permanent mending of torn blueprints, maps, books, and other papers is colorless and almost invisible. The Scotch brand tape is made of acetate film with a matte finish that you can write on with a pen or pencil. Unlike other tapes, it doesn’t discolor with age. A 180-inch roll sells for 39 cents. Minnesota Mining & Mfg. Co., St. Paul, Minn.
