Word to the wise... Unless you're really really good at taping quickly and in a straight line, taping is more labor than it's worth. I spent HOURS taping only to realize I needed to do touchup anyways because my tape wasn't exactly straight many times. And then there's seep-through to. Just buy a nice edge brush and an edging tool. Don't bother with the tape.

As a painter, I always use tape around door trim, window trim and baseboards. Even though like you mentioned, touch ups after your removed your tape, usually it's only few spots that with the tip of the brush you can take care of it. The benefits of using it is that it makes a much more professional look, and also does saves me time. Do all you prep and priming first, paint all you trim, then tape everything. When taping try not to break you tape in pieces, but make a starting point and start pulling with one hand while adjusting your line with the other. In the end cutting 2 coats, ends up being faster and better looking.

That's a good deal but I personally swear by Frog tape. The previous home owner used latex paint and the 3M blue would not stick to it. Very frustrating for my situation. At my local Sherwin Williams, the frog tape is almost always gone from the shelves too.

I just bought some of this Scotch Blue tape at Walmart a couple weeks ago. I'm sure it could have been different, but similar... and about $2.90 "every day" price.

I have the opposite preference. I tried frog tape several years ago, and it was worthless, allowed seepage all over. Never had any problems with 3M.

Need to add YMMV to title. Most stores around here don't even stock it and can't order it online.

Limited availability near me and they told me to check the store. So this is a YMMV type of deal unfortunately.

Taping has its place in certain situations but learning to cut in with a brush will save you tons of time and money.

One way of preventing seep-through is to use a detail brush and paint a strip from tape to wall, starting on tape and finishing on wall. You'd be using brush strokes that travel across the tape line rather than with it. That will eliminate the seep. And when you paint the main portion, you'll just overlap and cover the rough edge you made.

Wrong. Maybe if you can settle for a subpar job you can use a brush but if you have a customer who demands quality taping is a must.
