Idea Submissions

ShurTech Brands, LLC welcomes inventors and those with ideas. From new materials, products, and technologies, to new uses for existing products, we want to hear your ideas. ShurTech has a long record of successful, cooperative relationships that have resulted in launching new products now in the marketplace.

If you would like to submit your idea for review, please download, review, and sign the Idea Submission Agreement. The last two pages of the Idea Submission Agreement have space for you to provide information about your idea. You may also include attachments, printed drawings/exhibits, etc. as supporting information. Samples of your product or idea may be mailed to the address below in conjunction with the agreement and other information. In order to expedite the process, please submit ideas as developed as possible in regards to both feasibility and patent work (if applicable).

Please note that while ShurTech appreciates the enthusiasm and passion that many of our customers have for our Duck Tape® brand colors, prints and crafting tapes, we are unable to consider any outside unsolicited designs for color or printed tapes. Our internal team of graphic designers and creators are constantly working on many variations of new and current design trends, and to avoid any confusion over the source of any specific variation in design, we are unable to review these types of submissions.

Once the Idea Submission Agreement has been signed, submit a completed Idea Submission Form which should provide further detail on your idea and will facilitate the review process.

Our Product Development and Innovation team meets monthly to discuss new products, technologies, and external ideas submitted. Once your signed agreement, Idea Submission Form, and supporting documentation are received, your idea will be reviewed at the next New Product Development meeting. ShurTech will contact you with feedback and next steps immediately following review.

Should you have questions at any point during this process, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
