Paper (tape) showing after sanding


Paper tape is a type of weak adhesive tape that is used in painting, color coding, mounting and packaging. It is very easy to tear and can be removed without damaging the surface to which it is attached. There are several types of paper tapes, to include masking tape, drafting tape, artist's tape, board tape and painter's tape.

Masking tape is a type of paper tape that is pressure-sensitive. It was invented by Richard Drew, an employee of 3M, who saw the need for a weaker adhesive when removing butcher paper from cars that were being painted. It is mostly used in painting to mask out areas that should be left alone. It has a rating scale of 1 to 100, which is based on the strength o the adhesive. The 50 range is average for basic painting jobs.

Drafting tape is a variety of paper tape that is used to hold blueprints in place on a light table, or drawing board. It has the lowest tack among all paper tapes, to prevent damage to the thin paper or vellum. It can be...

President Donald Trump held a deregulation event on Thursday.He stood next to huge piles of paper and cut red tape.

President Donald Trump concluded a press conference about his administration's progress on cutting regulation on Thursday by standing in front of a massive stack of papers and cutting a literal band of red tape.

After speaking to reporters about the number of regulations he has eliminated and how the cuts would advance his agenda, the president moved over to a stack of paper taller than he is, signifying the number of regulations that exist at the federal level today. Crossing the enormous pile was a ribbon of red tape.

This red tape was crucial to Trump's message on deregulation, and a tweet he sent soon after his statements highlighted this element of the process conference.

"Today, we gathered in the Roosevelt Room for one single reason: to CUT THE RED TAPE!" Trump wrote. "For many decades, an ever-growing maze of regs, rules, and...

You use application tape to transfer the weeded graphic from the paper backing sheet onto the surface where you want your sign.

If you are unsure what application tape you need then consider the following;

Paper or Clear
There are 2 types of application tape. Paper application tape looks like masking tape and goes translucent when used in a wet application. Clear tape is transparent. If you are starting out in sign making consider a clear application tape as you will find it easier initially as you can see what you are doing as the tape is transparent.

Application tape comes in 3 tacks. The tack is the level of stickiness of the adhesive on the back of the tape. There...

( UPDATE 10/25/16: some of you sent questions about colored image transfers, or why their previous projects were cloudy or not sticking. I have 5 super helpful tips for you at the end!!)

Quiz: what can you use packing tape for, besides packing?

So excited to share with you today a really cool image transfer technique on how to turn packing tape into great looking clear labels and stickers!

Just think about all the ways you could use these beautiful stickers: pantry labels, gift tags, decorative touches on glass, wood or metal objects…

When I first started this blog, I posted an image transfer project that has become a reader favorite: here’s the tutorial on how to transfer images to wood and make vintage-inspired pallet crates.

Today’s packing tape image transfer is a bit different. The images will be transferred onto the packing tape which can be used just like a clear sticker, with your own custom designs!

All the lovely...

Laminating Adhesive 467MP and 468MP are popular choices for graphic attachment and membrane switch applications because they have excellent quality, consistency and durability.

These products offer: Clarity (virtually free of vapor inclusions that are commonly found in adhesives); Excellent high temperature performance as well as excellent shear strength (that minimizes edge lifting and slippage of parts); Excellent resistance to harsh environments: the adhesive can withstand splashes of organic solvents, weak acids and bases and salt water, cleaning solutions, germicidals, disinfectants, oils, etc. In addition, these perform well after exposure to humidity and hot/cold cycles and provides some initial repositionability when bonding to plastic parts (not metal) which allows graphic parts to be lifted and repositioned if initial alignment is...

A roll of punched tape

Punched tape is an old-fashioned form of data storage, consisting of a long strip of paper in which holes are punched to store data.

The earliest forms of punched tape come from weaving looms and embroidery, where cards with simple instructions about a machine's intended movements were first fed individually as instructions, then controlled by instruction cards, and later were fed as a string of connected cards. (See Jacquard loom).

This led to the concept of communicating analog data not as a stream of individual cards, but one "continuous card", or a tape. Many professional embroidery operations still refer to those individuals who create the designs and machine patterns as "punchers", even though punched cards and paper tape were eventually phased out, after many years of use, in the 1990s.

In 1846 Alexander Bain used punched tape to send telegrams.

Punched tape was eventually also used as a way...

Reconstruction of OP-80 paper tape reader

In March 2003 there was a discussion in the Usenet newsgroup (discussion group) comp.os.cpm, about the Oliver Engineering OP-80 paper tape reader. Paper tape data storage predates personal computers. The tape consists of a 1-inch paper strip of indeterminant length, punched with 9 holes across the width per byte (or character) of data; eight for binary data and one smaller "feedhole" for a sprocketed wheel to pull the tape and to align it past a reader.

The OP-80 was sold in the 1970's to read paper tapes containing data and programs. The discussion in comp.os.cpm in 2003 was about the merits of building similar readers and the value of an original OP-80 as an auction item. One person came to the fore about his actual and RECENT experience in constructing a very similar papertape reader. Stewart's comments are posted here as below with his...

Symptom: You want to paint your own car; you want to know what it takes to paint your own car; you need to be talked out of trying to paint your own car.


“I want to paint my own car, can you tell me what's involved?”

“Why can't I paint my own car?”

“How hard is it?”

“How much does it cost?”

“What is the best kind of paint to use?”

“Can I paint in my garage, or should I do it outside?”

These are all questions that I have either received in e-mails or seen float past on the newsgroups. And while I am no bodyshop expert, I have dabbled in enough of auto painting that I feel like I can offer some useful info. My goal is to try and break down at least some of the "mystery" of auto painting. What goes on behind those expensive, closed doors at that autobody shop?

First of all, like many of my articles some pre-preaching. I firmly believe that there are only two ways to paint a car. One is to do it the...

Bowl Assembly Using Rubber Chuckies These photos show how I assembled my Bowl #859 using several different kinds of Rubber Chuckies. During construction, I usually remove my bowl from the lathe and clamp rings using my ring press. Using this Rubber Chucky method, I never removed my bowl from the lathe until I cut it off the faceplate. Rubber Chuckies have many uses. They are great non-marring centering cones. Rubber Chuckies can be purchased from Don Doyle at

Few things are more satisfying than replacing smelling, stinky, worn-out old carpet, unless it’s replacing it with a super successful DIY alternative that leaves money in your pocket! That’s exactly what my experience has been with brown paper flooring.



What is a brown paper floor?

The brown paper floor is a hard floor covering that you can do yourself. It has a finished look of worn leather. It is created by gluing torn/crumpled pieces of brown paper, in an overlapping pattern. Personal styles and colors are achieved with stain and patterns. The floor is sealed using Polyurethane.

What supplies do I need? The supply list for the brown paper floor is extremely simple:

Brown paper Glue (Elmer’s White Glue or Polyurethane) Sealant (Polyurethane) Stain (optional), rag or paper towels Paint tray Roller or brushes

I also purchased a set of knee pads and latex gloves. I highly recommend both although they aren’t an...
