    OR get wide masking tape, and black out the parts you DO want.

  2. Tim says:

    Yeah, plain tape and a Sharpie is just too complicated.

  3. Stokes says:

    It is kind of silly, but it does look as if it’ll produce tidy lettering quickly.

  4. schmexplosives? says:

    agreed. this is one of those “lets make something way more complicated than it needs to be and then try to market it”

  5. Shadyman says:

    And, they’re all out of stock :x

  6. Ryan says:

    I know others are saying this is just trying to over complicate a simple concept. However as stokes says this will make everything “cleaner”.

    Also, this could be used with a Xacto knife to make “clean” front for single static psuedo “LCD” characters.

  7. Stanislaw says:

    This could be pretty good for public inventory displays and price tags for small business with an ‘IT’ theme an ‘8-bit’ style tape could be pretty cool too.

  8. Roeurn says:

    I agree with Ryan and Stanislaw; you’re paying for a theme and a “look” for your message.
