When you are about to embark on a fabulous creation, make it with paper first—so you
don’t waste any of your valuable duct tape.
When cutting duct tape, keep the sticky side up—it will stick to the scissors less.
For small, fancy work, use a glass mat with a craft knife. The tape pulls easily
off the glass surface without leaving a sticky residue and, you can cut very
small details into the tape without wanting to crunch up all of it and throw it
at your brother.
When buying duct tape, make sure it is at least 9 or 10 mil in strength.
2″ is the width of choice, unless you are planning a large project, in which case,
use the 3″ width tape.
Make sure you are comparing tape of the same length per roll when pricing; the 60
yard rolls are the most cost effective.
Shipping is usually going to be expensive because—duh—duct tape is heavy.
