Default What's your favorite "post it note" to use for masking?

Are regular post it notes good enough for masking? I know they only have the sticky part at that the top but are there other brands or masking type papers that I'm not aware of?

There are some that are full adhesive on the back that I've used with success.

I watch the newspaper ads for Staples and buy the name-brand Post-Its when they're on sale. I love the ones with full adhesive! If I'm using a punch a shape from the post-it first though, I use the type with adhesive at the top only so the it doesn't get stuck in the punch.

The quality of Post-It paper is fine for masking. I generally use Post-It tape - 2" or 1". You can also buy it thinner or in full sheetzsz. I get mine on Amazon.

A very low-tack painters or masking tape can work too - like the yellow Frog Tape. I first stick it on my slacks or arm to make it even less sticky.

I'm like Beth and my preferred choice is Post-It Note Tape. Perfect size and sticky all on back side.

I have a glue stick by Elmer that is repositionable glue. I use this to make my own "post it" notes from scraps of paper. I can then cut the shape I need, swipe some glue on the back and have a custom sticky note to use for masking.

i like the sticky-all-over post-it notes. That way the whole thing stays where you put it.

I am looking for the full adhesive post its myself. It seems the easiest least expensive.

But there is dedicated masking paper you can buy which I have if you want something to use over and over-pay attention to page sizes/pricing:
https://www.simonsaysstamp.com/produ...0?currency=USD

https://www.scrapbooking-warehouse.c...ing-mask-paper

As well as fluids if you wanted to mask details
Fineline Masking Fluid Pen - Ellen Hutson LLC

DANIEL SMITH Masking Fluid 1oz. - Ellen Hutson LLC

These pens also come 4mm
Molotow Grafx Art Masking Pen, 2mm - Ellen Hutson LLC

People have been using Frisket for years
Grafix Incredible White Mask Liquid Frisket - Ellen Hutson LLC

These are for info-not necessarily best prices. Other places will have it too like art supply stores and gen stamp suppliers.
