This blog post will look at why washi tape loses its sticking quality and provide solutions.
Reasons For Washi Tape Not Sticking
We want you to learn more about five reasons why your washi tape has a hard time sticking when it should do:
Age of Washi Tape
Even after storing your washi tape perfectly, it loses some of its sticking power. This is most likely when you have had trouble with a particular roll. You noticed that when used on other projects, there are issues such as peeling or curling up at the edges. This is due to archival quality as an issue rather than a specific thing only related directly to how long storage has been, for example.
Pressure on Washi Tape
We’re always on the lookout for new ways to use washi tape. There is an excellent idea for using it to create unique patterns of pressure on the paper. This technique is perfect for adding a bit of personality to your correspondence or creating one-of-a-kind cards and invitations.
Here’s how it works:
-Start by choosing a few different colors of washi tape.
-Cut them into thin strips, and then use a bone folder or the back of a spoon to apply pressure evenly across the tape. This will create a lovely embossed effect.
-Experiment with varied patterns and see what you can come up with!
This easy technique will surely add a special touch to all your paper projects. Give it a try and see for yourself!
Contaminated Adhesive of Washi Tape by Accident
Use Washi tape to spruce up some old notebooks. But after peeling off the backing, there was trouble. The adhesive was gooey and wet, smeared all over the pages of the notebook. Unroll the Washi tape and examine it more closely.
An adhesive holds products together but can also act as a sealant. When there is a spill, the adhesive will keep the liquid from seeping through. However, the adhesive will lose effectiveness if old or damaged. The contaminated adhesive had come into contact with spills or leaks.
When you come across a roll of Washi tape that a spill contaminated, do not use it. Dispose of it properly so that others will not come into contact with the contaminated adhesive.
Washi tape is a exciting way to add personality to notebooks, but only when used correctly. Check the condition of the adhesive before using it.
Storage Conditions of Washi Tape
When you live in an area with high humidity, storing washi tape in a cool and dry place is best.
One way to do this is to store washi tape in a plastic baggie or container with a desiccant packet.
Another way to store washi tape is by wrapping it around a pencil or another object, so it stays rolled up and doesn’t get damaged.
You can store washi tape in a binder with plastic sheet protectors or an empty tissue box.
When you store washi tape for an extended period, it is best to keep it in a dark place so that the colors don’t fade.
Washi tape is a fun way to add a little bit of color and personality to your belongings. But it’s essential to take care when storing it. With a few simple tips, you can keep your washi tape in excellent condition for years to come.
