Can I write on washi tape?
Big YES! You can write over washi tape because it’s made of paper.
We recommend using Life of Colour paint pens over the washi tape to make cool patterns and decorate your planners, journals and cards with different colour combinations.
You can also write over it with any type of pencil, pen, acrylic paint, crayons and more!
Washi tape vs masking tape
Masking tape paper is usually lower quality than washi’s, and the adhesive is stronger - making it difficult to remove in certain situations, specially when working with watercolour and mixed media paper.
Another downside to generic masking tape is bleeding through the edges. Washi is very helpful for making sure your edges stay bleed-free and without any ripping.
Washi tape vs painters tape
The difference between washi tape and painters tape is a lot more noticeable. Masking and painters tapes are often confused, but painters tape is designed specifically for painting jobs.
Painters tape is built to be used with paint on walls and wood materials, but is not always the right fit for masking on paper.
Use washi tape in planners, journals and bujo
There are many planner and bujo washi uses, some people use the washi as an accessory, holding other scraps of paper, while others use the washi to create sections and lines to write on.
Washi tape is a staple for bullet journal and no bujo kit is complete without a set of washi!
If you like to do art or junk journals, then washi can be your ally, being used as painters tape or masking tape for clean edges on your paper.
Washi tape for gift wrapping, envelopes and snail mail
Adding a splash of colour to your gift wrapping can be a great detail. It’s also very important to know, since washi can be repositioned, people often save the little bits of washi and reuse it on their journals or for other gifts (it is a great improvement from cello tape).
Treating every envelope that leaves your house as a planner spread is a form of art that has taken off lately, bringing a whole new level to envelope design and customization.
Washi tape for painting
Have you ever watched those satisfying masking tape peeling videos on Instagram? Did you notice most of them use washi tape? Painters tape can be harsh on paper, so a lot of artists began experimenting with washi tape to get clean edges on their pieces.
