In the past we have bought framing tape from George B. Tewes,
Western Felt and Fibre, California, until we found a supplier in the
UK. We now obtain it from

    The British Felt Company
    Crown Hill
    Milton Keynes

They supply thicknesses of 1mm and 2mm in packs of 15 rolls, cut to
width as required. We have found it to be superior to the American
tape, clean cut with a good pressure sensitive adhesive.
