About Us

How it all began.

We began what’s now Dorotape back in the late 80s, when as part of a European group of companies, we were one of the first manufacturers of paper and filmic application tape, supplying the UK signs and graphics market. Good at what we did, we soon expanded alongside the industries we served, and it wasn’t long before we were offering a wide range of self-adhesive films and tapes too.

What we do and how we do it so well.

Home of the unique, striking and colourful, Dorotape supply self-adhesive specialist films to help the graphics specialists achieve the perfect finish every time. As UK distributors for leading European and American manufacturers including ASLAN, Poli-Tape, Fedrigoni (Ritrama), Nekoosa, Neschen and Cover Styl, we offer one of the largest selections of functional and decorative self-adhesive films in the UK.

We’re proudly independent, which means we have our pick of the most innovative and dynamic suppliers and materials. Our vast portfolio includes self-adhesive vinyl and films for sign making, large format digital printing and stencil masking as well as heat activated adhesive films for garment decoration and a wide range of double-sided tapes. We have the enviable reputation for being one of the UK’s main suppliers of metallised and dichroic films, but also focus heavily on premium quality coloured vinyl, glass manifestation films as well as printable materials for wall, floor and window graphics. We also have an expanding range of eco-products too, including films made from post-consumer recycled plastic and other PVC-free alternatives.

Our broad portfolio of materials allows us to work with a vast range of businesses and industries. From art installations to aircraft assembly, we wouldn’t be exaggerating if we said, and everything in between!
