Hi all,

I have a local board game shop (where you can play lots of games), and most of the games have this weird plastic band / wrap going around the cards.

It looks like you can buy a big roll, cut it to size, apply heat and it binds.

My problem is that I have no idea what it is called; Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks.

No need to heat, it just works.

I am told that bondage tape is the same stuff, and is much cheaper.

Hugo's tape is very expensive in the UK, so I made the mistake of ordering 4 rolls from Hugo's in the States. Even with shipping it was cheaper. Until I got hit by a jobsworth on the customs duty thing. Even though it was only just over the limit, I got hit with duty plus a handling fee. I tried to offer to throw away one of the rolls so that it was under the limit, but, oh no. I had the choice of paying up (making the rolls even more expensive) or rejecting the parcel and thus getting nothing for my money. Mumble, mumble, mumble...
