As a picture framer, one is inevitably asked to frame a sports jersey, create a historical collage of a loved one’s personal items or some other type of memorabilia. Pro Tapes® adhesive tape products are indispensable in your framing tool belt.
1. Pro® Stitchery Tape
Pro® Stitchery Tape to start with is 1″ and 1.5″ inch wide double sided tape, acid free and pH Neutral. Pro® Stitchery Tape features a high initial tack that won’t adversely react to most fabrics or mat boards, making it ideal for framing of sports jerseys. The width of the tape makes it much more compliant, the tape goes down easy & even, no fighting or wrestling with the fabric. I once had a European soccer jersey made out of synthetic fibers, now that was a fight!
Need pre-cut pieces? Then try our UGlu®….
UGlu® has a fantastic non-toxic removable adhesive, once again, acid free/ pH neutral. The 3″x 3″ Power Patches is what you want to get, this is my personal favorite. It contains five 3″x3″ strips per pack of heavier double sided tape you can easily apply. UGlu® Power Patches can be applied by hand, and the adhesion is outstanding. UGlu can adhere to almost any fabric. For applications that require smaller pre-cut pieces use UGlu® Dashes, available 160 pieces to a sheet, the ½” x 5/8″ size is a very convenient time saver!
