What is Transfer Tape?
It is made of a thin, flexible sheet of plastic or paper that can be easily attached to one surface and peeled off of the other. It’s commonly used to transfer items like photos, artwork, signs, and labels.
When using transfer tape, make sure that the surfaces you are attaching it to are clean and free from any oils, waxes, or other materials that could cause the tape to peel off prematurely.
To use transfer tape:
- First, take the item you want to attach the tape to and place it face down on the surface you want to attach it to.
- Next, position the piece of transfer tape over the top of the item and press it firmly against the surface. Then, slowly pull up on the edge of the tape until it’s fully attached.
- Finally, peel away!
How to Remove Transfer Tape?
There are many ways to remove it. However, the easiest way is to use a hair dryer on low heat. Hold the hair dryer 10 to 12 inches from the tape and turn it on. The heat will cause the adhesive to melt and you will be able to easily remove it. Alternatively, you can use a sharp knife to start cutting it away from the object. Carefully pull the tape off of the object.
