Painters Tape

Painter's tape, also known as painting tape, is a high-performance masking tape for general industry, construction, and do-it-yourself use. Its name comes from the tape's most common function. Painter's tape has a relatively weak adhesive, so it can be removed cleanly without stripping off any material. This makes it very useful for any task that involves painting. Professional painter's often cover areas with painter's tape to protect against paint splatters.

The painter's tape sold by Tape Jungle is the same tape you would buy at your local store for $8 a roll. At Tape Jungle, however, tape is sold at bulk prices. When bought in bulk, Tape Jungle's standard blue painting tape is only $2 per roll. It's a premium product at an affordable price.

Painter's tape is flexible and multi-purpose. The best uses for painter's tape are:

  • Creating a sharp edge when painting. When you remove the tape after painting over it, you are left with a crisp, professional-looking straight line.
  • Saving time preparing for painting. The crepe paper tape sticks to almost all surfaces, including wood, drywall, painted drywall, and more. It's simple to apply, easy to tear, and can be quickly adjusted.
  • Allowing you to paint for several weeks with one tape application. Our tape will stick to surfaces for weeks but will not leave a residue behind after removal. It's ideal for long-term projects.
  • Quickly removing the tape after painting without fear of ruining your hard work. The mild adhesive will not rip your paint or drywall when it is removed. There's no need for razor blades or picking small pieces off the wall after painting. You can simply take the tape off when you're done painting.
  • Labeling anything around the house. The tape is easy to write on and will stick to almost anything. Instead of writing notes on the walls of your house during construction projects, write notes on painter's tape instead. You'll never run out of room, and you can just throw the tape away when you're finished.

Does Masking Tape Work as Painter’s Tape?

Painter's tape is technically a type of masking tape. Masking tape refers to any type of tape that is intended to cover and protect surfaces. However, painter's tape is specifically designed for painting applications. Because of its specialization, it can be a little pricey compared to non-specialized masking tape. Some people cut costs by opting for masking tape instead of painter's tape. This can work for certain projects, but masking tape comes with a few disadvantages.

Masking tape has a natural rubber adhesive that leaves behind residue if it stays on surfaces for too long. The residue is difficult to clean and even harder to paint over. If you are doing a small project that can be completed in under a few hours, then masking tape may be safe to use. However, if you are completing a long-term project, you should use painting tape instead.

Another disadvantage to masking tape is that it's adhesive can strip paint if it is left on a painted surface for more than a few hours. If it is applied on top of water-based paint, the tape may buckle or allow seepage. You can use masking tape for painting over steel and other unpainted surfaces, but it isn't recommended for use on painted surfaces.
