A general tip: When you are choosing a tape dispenser that will be used on a daily basis, intensively, make sure that it has a weight at the bottom, that allows for use with just one hand. Many cute dispensers are too light and the user need s both hands to cut the tape, loosing time. Still, some of them are so gorgeous, that they are worth the hassle!
