Review: Kamio Piritte Masking Tape


 Tape, there's no such thing as too much tape! 

There's so much choice when it comes to tape, what makes Kamio's Piritte line of tape different? 

 The piritte masking tape is described as 'cellophane-like'. 

It's clear and matte, which is something you don't see very often.  

Each roll of tape is 20mm wide and 4m long. That''s wider than a regular roll but shorter than say, MT tape. 

I picked up 2 designs to try out. 

The top one is 'otona no zukan' (adult illustration) stationery edition, the bottom one is 'frames story' cafe edition. 

Both designs are really pretty, and very usable, and as you can see, does not reflect light which makes it easier to photograph. 

The cellophane-like texture is unlike any other tape I've tried before. 

I did find it that it warps a bit when you use it, and it's prone to getting caught on other parts of the tape, the longer you unwind it. 

However, like washi tape, it comes off of paper easily so it is easily adjustable. 

The designs are very usable, I used the cafe ones in this brown layout. 

and I cut up the stationery designs for use in my diary, it looks quite seamless here, like I drew the designs myself. 

I really like this series, other than the minor annoyances such as the warp, which can be helped by unwinding the tape slowly. 

Other designs include sea creatures, musical instructions, even characters such as moomin and peanuts, something to appeal to most people. 

Mostly importantly, it photographs nicely, which when taking pictures of your daily journal, is an important trait to have. 

What do you think? Would you purchase this tape?
