World of Washi Tape – Discover The Magic Inside

I never thought of I’d be writing about masking tape.  I always tried to avoid using any masking tape that we usually see, for example, duct tape, brown tape, cellophane tape, PVC tape, etc.  It’s sticky, and not to mention that I need to use scissors or a tape dispenser to cut… what’s so great about it?

Anyway, let’s put aside all the technical terms for the tapes mentioned above.  Honestly, I’m not sure how to differentiate those tapes clearly.  However, the one type of tape that I’m going to be talking about is different. (hey, or else you won’t see me writing about it here 🙂 ) 

And this special type of tape is much more fun and colorful and is called washi tape.

There are various names for it that I’ve covered here.

Washi tapes have been around in the market for quite a while.  I just didn’t pay much attention to them until one fine day…

…some music washi tapes were sort of “saying” hello to me in a bookstore.  It’s exciting to see anything related to music.  The music washi tape was, of course, in my shopping cart and came home with me.

I shared this with my cousin.  We then collected a lot more until we decided to sell them online. Isn’t it wonderful to buy, sell and collect?

So, what's the magic inside the world of washi tape?

You can find all sorts of pictures, colors, textures, and patterns on washi tapes.

It’s not required to be artsy or crafty because washi tape itself is already an art piece.  Just let your creativity run wild.

There are so many different washi tapes nowadays in the market from, big brands to independent brands and everything in between.  We recently got some new stuff called PET tape.  It involves extra steps to use, in our opinion.
