Comments about Blick Artist Tape:
I was delighted to find this tape! I use it to stripe some of my paintings. I had been using painter's tape, but frustrated by it b/c of its standard width. This product was recommended to me by another painter. It sticks just right and doesn't leave residue. Great stuff!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Blick Artist Tape
from Goshen IN
I was expecting a tape that would not pull off some of the watercolor paper as do the brands from a hardware store, but I was disappointed. This tape also pulls off some of the watercolor paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Dick Blick is now my main source for materials
from Shrewsbury, Pa.
Lowest price by far. Very overpriced in the few shops I found that carried it.
Perfect tack for watercolor paper
from Christiansburg. VA
I got the white tape, for masking off the edges of watercolor paintings. It goes on easily and comes off without any worry about damaging the paper. Another bonus I did not expect: it's easier to mask a straight line with this tape compared to ordinary masking tape, because it is thicker and does not tend to curve when you peel it off the roll.
Excellent tape for safely hanging art
from East Palo Alto, CA
Needed something simple yet elegant for hanging wall art, while not damaging wall or art surfaces. Amazing stuff. Not just masking tape.

Couldn't do without this tape
By Pearl Girl
#sweepstakesI am just a hobby artist but I learned quickly the value of artist tape. It holds the pictures nicely but pulls away easily. I have not found white artist tape at any better price. I buy several rolls at a time so I am sure not to run out!

The best artist tape you can buy!
I've tried a few other artist tapes before, and they were quite expensive, perhaps 2-3x the cost of this kind. This product has the right amount of stickiness and leaves no residue whatsoever. Excellent for canvases or artboards, especially for color charts.
Adhesive too strong
By Ms. Parker the Art Teacher
from Plevna, MT
My classroom has no air conditioning or windows, so we're stuck using fans to keep ourselves cool. The fans then make the papers shift or fly all over, so I use this tape to hold the students' papers in place in order for them to work. I was confident that this was good artist tape/painter's tape so I stuck it on without first making it less sticky. It held the papers down wonderfully. Yet, the adhesive is a little too strong for paper and ripped my students' work. I taught them how to make their tape less sticky before using it, so we have overcome the issue. However, I know a few of them will forget and will have ripped projects in the future. A little disappointed with how strong the adhesive is, but I would purchase again because of it's affordability and ordering/delivering capabilities.

Sometimes a little too sticky
from Cleveland, OH
This is a decent white artist tape, but remove very carefully. I use for a crisp edge to the white border around my watercolors, but it pulls off some of the paper (260lb. Arches CP) as it's being removed. I doubt I will purchase it again, will look for something with less tack.
Seems to be a good tape.
from New Mexico
I think I've used this tape before to hold down my pastel paper to a support. Bought this for times I can't use the bulldog clips, because the panel size and paper size don't exactly match.
