Duck brand duct tape has partnered with Fiskars to introduce Fiskars Duck Edition scissors. To mark the launch, Fiskars is hosting a sweepstakes starting today called Imagination on a Roll on its Facebook page.
Sweepstakes participants are encouraged to share their Duck Tape crafting project ideas on Fiskars’ Facebook page for a chance to win 21 rolls of Duck Tape and the new Fiskars Duck Edition scissors, a prize valued at more than $90. The sweepstakes runs through July 14.
Fiskars Duck Edition scissors feature a nonstick blade coating to cut through sticky adhesives without gummy buildup and blades optimized to make perfect cuts every time on a variety of materials including strong, sticky Duck brand duct tapes, according to the company. They are available in 5-in. for detailed cuts and 8-in. for longer cuts.
“The Duck Tape crafting phenomenon continues to grow, and, as always, it’s our mission to listen to duct tape users and provide the tools they need to personalize their creations,” said Shelley Price, director of marketing for DIY Tapes at ShurTech Brands, LLC, Duck Tape’s parent company. “Partnering with a tried-and-true brand like Fiskars helps us offer another great way for crafters to complete their projects with style.”
“Both Duck brand duct tape and Fiskars share a commitment to creating innovative products that help people express their creativity,” said Jay Gillespie, Fiskars VP of brand marketing. “This partnership is a perfect fit, and we’re looking forward to giving enthusiasts tools that make creating with Duck Tape easier than ever before.”
The scissors are currently available on Fiskars.com and at JoAnn stores.
