Can someone tell me what is the Blue or Pink sticky tape I see being used on the you tube demo's for zipper bags?

Is it just painters tape or electrical tape?
I looked at a few haby sites but didn't see it listed. I used clear sticky tape the other day but thought the coloured would be easier to see when it came to peeling it off.

Thanks everyone for your help and advice on the tape. Have some Pink on the way and will also try out Blue painters tape if I can find it at Bunnings as well as Electrical tape and see what works best and what is most economical.

Think your question has been answered. i use both the blue painters and the pink Floriani. The pink will stick longer than the blue, but the blue is cheaper. So guess it doesn't matter! I can use the blue 2-3 times then I have to replace it.

They seem to be painter's tape, not available where I live. Here they only sell the paper crepe like tape that works well as long as you don't leave it on overnight.

Sounds like masking tape.

Floriani makes a Pink Perfection Tape...I haven't used it but many like it...it is a bit expensive...

Hubby ordered me some of this but I am still going to try the painters tape as well.
Thanks for telling us the name of it so much easier to search when you have a product name.

My painters tape is green but I have also found a 24 hour masking tape that is cheaper and works better.

If you're good with scissors, buy the wide painter's tape and you can split it down the middle.

The pink is expensive painters tape. I won some at a class I was taking. The blue is just as good.
