Artist and Drafting Tape
Artist and drafting tape have a moderate to low tack adhesive that can be removed without damaging a paper surface. Use artist tape for masking applications where it is extremely important to minimize the effect of residue that is left behind on the surface. Drafting tape comes in neutral colors and is designed to blend in while holding down or mounting drafting projects. Artist tape comes in more colors for labeling and color coding. Painter’s tape, a type of masking tape, is generally blue and is used for blocking areas where paint is not desired — it removes cleanly and won’t damage walls or furniture.
