Can you tell me where to get this tape?

Take a look at this picture: See the tape that is marking the ruler? It's translucent plastic and clings to the ruler without adhesive (kind of like the old Color Forms toys). I had a roll of it that I used it for years to mark cutting lines and alignment points and such on my rotary rulers. Now that I have used all of it, I can't remember where I bought the stuff or what it is called. I can't even remember if it came from the fabric store or the office supply. What it is, I haven't a clue. I don't even know if it was originally meant to mark rotary rulers, but it worked perfectly for the job.

Does anyone know what this stuff is and where to buy it?

I bought mine at Joann's in the quilting notion section a couple of years ago. I have it in pink, yellow and orange. If you cannot find, let me know and I will send you a roll.

I don't know if this is the tape, but here are some links:

I have a package of the following vinyl strips that I use on my rulers.

I hope at least one of these links is helpful to you.

As far as I know it is just 1/4 inch masking tape that they marketed for hand quilting. Then they put lines on it and called it "Tiger Tape" but I didn't try looking for a source yet as I still have a small bit on a roll.

OMNIGRID !!!! I saw it at a fabric store yesterday & racked my brain trying to remember who asked about it. It's called "glow-line" tape.I have some but it's SO OLD that it does not stick anymore....I googled it - pretty sure you can get it online faster than I could get it to you, though if you think I CAN get it to you quicker - holler & I'll go get it for you.
