    • TAPE APPLICATION TIPS: For great paint results make sure the surface is clean, dry and dust-free so that the tape sticks properly. Next, apply the tape onto the surface while pressing down firmly as you go. And lastly, let the tape set for about 30 to 60 minutes before painting.
    • TAPE REMOVAL TIPS: Wait until the paint is dry to the touch before removing the tape. Lift it up by slowly pulling it back on itself, then removing at a 45-degree angle.

    ScotchBlue™ Original Painter’s Tape is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 363.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Removed Paint from my walls I bought 1/2" & 1" blue painters tape and would not stick to wood and sometimes to the wall and when removing tape from wall it pulled the paint off.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Peeled paint off my wall After 3 weekends of painting our entry way, living room and hallway, I thought I was finally finished. I finished it out with painting the trim. And then, I pulled up the tape, only to have it peel off the wall paint I did a couple of weekends ago. Completely frustrated. The paint around the trim is time consuming and tedious and now I have more taping and painting to do. We have used this product in the past and have never had this issue. Very disappointed

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Made more work This tape was used to mask off the cieling and along the cupboards. Put on one night painted pulled, or tried to pull it off, the next morning. With the tape came the cieling paint and the finish from our cupboards. So now I can paint my ceiling. Can't just touch up the bad spots as they stand out like crazy. I don't know what to do about the cupboards.... If you don't want extra work and cost to your painting project don't use this tape!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pulled paint and paper off sheetrock. I installed this tape 20 days after the room was painted so the painter could start on the trim. It was on overnight. The painter showed up in the morning and mentioned that he did not need painters tape since he had a steady hand. As I began to remove it, the tape pulled paint and paper off. No rhyme or reason. Some spots the tape came off great no residue or paint removed. Needless to say I have multiple spots that have to be spakled and painted. Very disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Painter's Tape Out There I have used exclusively Scotch Blue Painter's Tape because it does the job with no fuss. It leaves the other "green with envy" with the crisp lines and no bleeding. I highly recommend that if you are painting and need crisp edges and value for your dollar, buy Scotch Painter's tapes!
