My Favorite Transparent Printed Text Tapes
I've blogged about tape several times over the last seven years:
My Essential Tape Rolls
Where to Find Tape a.k.a. The Decorative Tape Post
Above is a photo of my favorite transparent printed TEXT tapes. I use these a LOT and I rarely leave home without one tucked into a bag. I am always on the lookout for new transparent printed text tapes to add to my stash.
The tapes that I mention (as you can see above) are a plastic, see through tape. They are not the washi tapes (which I also love). These are like taking a roll of clear packing tape and having text printed on it. They are luscious and yummy to layer.
Recently, a reader (thanks, Emie!) gave me a heads up as to where to find the O Check tape. Sure, it pops up every now and then on etsy, but my favorite vendor to order it from disappeared. O Check lists both tapes on their website but they list the script tape as sold out.
Romantic Pink has both O Check tapes in stock:
and the prices are good!
Tapeswell has a large roll of printed transparent tape called Old Script. It's yummy and available here. (fyi, Tapeswell has extended a 15% off of your entire purchase (minimum $10) to readers of my blog if you use the coupon code KELLY when ordering.)
The only tape that I don't have a source for any longer, as it's been discontinued is the pink Prima Marketing tape. I wish that they hadn't discontinued their tape as it is some of my favorite.
The good news is that it looks like tape is becoming even more popular now! I found (via Ali Edwards' blog) that KI Memories has some printed TEXT tape coming out soon (if it hasn't come out already.)
I love layering transparent printed tapes onto:
and much, much more!
Has anyone heard of any other companies that have NEW transparent printed TEXT tapes (letters or numbers) coming out any time soon?
