Great Mistake Not
from Bethlehem, PA
Comments about Lineco Acid-Free Gummed Linen Tape:
Mistakenly ordered this instead of the self-adhesive tape and found this to be so much stronger. It will not creep if you are matting a work that is larger or heavier. Perhaps not as convenient as the self-adhesive tape, but it's well worth the little extra effort.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use this product all the time
from Lockport, Il
This is the best tape for using in photographs and Giclee prints
from Chicago, IL
This is my second purchase of Lineco Acid-free Gummed Linen tape. I use it to mount both prints and originals to mats. It clips easily, gums nicely, and adheres well. The caveat on my review is that I have been using it for less than a year, and I have yet to try to remove it from anything to which it has been applied for a long time, so I have no idea how it ages. But so far so good.I have also never purchased any other sort of gummed tape, so I have no basis for comparison, but at the moment I feel no need to shop around.

I've used paper tape and didn't hold up like this linen tape. Strong.
Archival and the best for framing work
from alexandria, LA
As an artist I want my work matted with archival materials so it will last. I have always used Linco gummed tape because it is archival and it will break away pretty easily if you need to remove the work from the mat for any reason.
I have never used Linen tape to hang my paper paintings.My paintings are sold and heavy but this tape is strong and solid.

Best way to attach watercolor paper to a mat
from Sandy, OR
This tape works very well. I run a damp sponge over the gummed side and after putting the tape in place lightly rub it down with a handkerchief followed by running my thumbnail along the edge of the paper to get a good join. If I need to remove it I use an exacto knife and don't worry about the bit of tape left on.In the years I have used this product it has never come loose.
This tape is perfect for mounting works on paper
from Concord, NH
I work on paper mostly doing w/c painting and monotypes. I needed some tape to hinge the work onto an acid free backing. Very nice tape.
the tape did not adhere well to water color paper
By C A M
from fairview, Oregon
I do not hinge with it but apply to paper and mat directly, as in monotypes, and so it may be that this product is not made to do that. Paper tape works great, but I did not find that product in the catalog. The glue just did not work on several papers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A must for my process
By Animal advocate
I use this paper to design my image using vine charcoal. When I finish my image, I spray my drawing so it wont smudge, then I trace my drawing on the back of the same paper. This allows me to position my drawing on my permanent drawing paper, and rub slightly to transfer it. It is perfect for design and placement without making marks that can't be removed later.
