If you are in love with washi tape from Japan, join much of the rest of the planet as Japanese washi tape is one of the most popular products to be currently manufactured in the Asian country.
That being said, a simple roll of Japanese washi tape can be very expensive, especially if you buy it from a shop you have not shopped at before.
It is possible to buy as much washi tape as you like for a low price, but you will need to go about it the right way.
Use a shopping app — A good, free shopping app will help you find those shops that sell low-price washi tape, without spending hours doing online searches yourself.
Download a highly-rated free shopping app and plug in the term ‘washi tape’. It will then show you hundreds of sites currently selling it for a low price.
Buying in Japan versus America — You may be surprised to learn it is possible to buy washi tape from an American store, and pay a lower price than if you buy it from a Japanese site.
This is because there are some American stores online that specialize in Japanese products so they buy in bulk. This allows them to offer low prices on washi tape and other Japanese products, and allows you to get them cheaper than if you ordered from many of the smaller Japanese shops online.
Buy in bulk — If you use a lot of washi tape, be sure to buy as much as you can afford all at one time.
This will not only often get you a lower price per roll of tape, as discounts are often given for bulk purchases, it will also save you money on shipping the washi tape to your home.
