How to Choose the Best White-Out

The best white-out for you will depend on your needs and working conditions. There are different widths of white-out, different dimensions, and more. Here's a brief buying guide on what to look for when buying the best white-out. 

Look for Fast-Drying or Dry Tapes

Look for Fast-Drying or Dry Tapes

Once you've covered your mistake with white-out, you might want to write directly over it. However, if the white-out takes time to dry, you'll either have to wait or risk making a mess on the still-wet tape. 


As white-out technology improves, more and more products are being created to have a short drying time, or better yet, to apply the white-out completely dry. Dry-application white-out will save you time and frustration, so we recommend searching for an applicator that meets your needs in that area. 

Choose a Sturdy Material

Choose a Sturdy Material

Some white-out is made with a paper base, which may look more like the paper it's being used to cover but also is easier to break before you finish your stroke or when you try writing over the tape. 


If you get frustrated over tape breakage, you may want to invest in a white-out with a polyester base. This has more of a plastic texture but is more durable than paper-based white-out. 

Consider the Width of the Tape

Consider the Width of the Tape

You want to be able to correct your mistake with one stroke of the white-out, but you also don't want to cover the lines above or below it. The white-out width that best suits your document will depend on whether it's typed or handwritten


Most white-out are one-sixth of an inch in width—the size of printed 12-point font. This means that if you plan on only correcting regular-font documents, any standard-width white-out should do. 


However, if you plan to correct handwritten documents or typed documents with extra-large fonts, you may want to pay careful attention to the width of the tape you're buying. 

Remember That Rewind Features Reduce Waste

Remember That Rewind Features Reduce Waste

Sometimes when your white-out doesn’t properly release from the roll, it can get sucked back into the dispenser and wasted. We recommend looking for a dispenser that has a rewind function to allow you to pull the tape back in the other direction so that you can attempt to get it off again. That way none of your tape will be wasted. 

Pick an Easy to Refill White-Out Dispenser

Pick an Easy to Refill White-Out Dispenser

Most white-out dispensers are refillable. You simply open the casing and change the tape film roll with a new one. Some dispensers are designed with an easy push button to open the case, while others might require a bit more effort to get the two sides apart. 


An easy-to-open dispenser also means more convenient troubleshooting. There will be moments when the film breaks, unravels, and gets tangled or twisted. You can address the problem by opening the dispenser and re-rolling the film on its gear. 


We also recommend double-checking if refills are available as some brands are only sourced on their websites or aren't readily in stock. This will ensure that you have an accessible backup and avoid wasting dispensers. 

Find the Best Tip for Your Needs

Find the Best Tip for Your Needs
When it comes to the tip of your white-out, a few extra features can go a long way. Some dispensers have clear tips that make it easier to see where you’re correcting so that you know when to stop. Some also come with a retractable tip or cover or a cap to prevent the tip from being dried out or damaged. 

There are also several different angles that white-out companies offer for ergonomic comfort. If you need to use the white-out often throughout the day, you might want to consider one of these special tips to prevent hand or finger cramps


There are also single- and double-sided tip options, with double-sided being more convenient for quick usage of your white-out. 

Introduction to White-Out

Introduction to White-Out

If you've never used white-out before, you might become a convert with the first try. Unlike correction fluids which take forever to dry, white-out is odorless and stick to the surface dry. You don't need to wait before writing over it. 


Another perk is neatness. The straight edges of a white-out make your correction cleaner, unlike the lumps and uneven application of white fluid. With the right technique and pressure, you can get even lines over the text, regardless of the font size. 


White-out dispensers are also easier to maneuver compared to the dual action of squeezing and sliding a correction pen.
