You could contact the company to see where they distribute near you. Or you can order online but that usually would be a bit more than you would pay locally.

or you could just use a clear sealer like Gardz or peel bond on the edge of your present tape and save a bundle...

I just looked at the banner for The Paint Store on PT and they have it for $6 USD+ shipping. Get a case and sell them to Cloverdale.

Not to take the tread off topic but..does anyone use The Paint Store online ordering- I have been considering it lately since all the sundries in my town are limited.

I buy some stuff from them best to buy what ever it is you are wanting by the case or buy enough single items for the shipping to level out.

My favorite local Paint Store will ship it to you
http://www.snowshomeandgarden.com/
Apparently they sell a lot online, as it seems many are in the same situation as you
If it's not "up" on the site at the moment, e-ask them for it
They've got it, and they sell it pretty much e-everywhere
(It's an online "biggie")

$20 a roll is highway robbery. Seriously. That is bullsheit. Just learn to cut in.. =no money.

Check Intertape products. They have their own version of it called Bloc-it. Same exact stuff.

I live in Victoria Canada and the only place I have found that sells the tape is Industrial Paints and Plastics. Both Benjamin Moore and Cloverdale don't carry it but have offered to bring it in. I'm paying $8 per roll for one-inch and $16 for two inch. In most cases, I only use it for those times when a crisp line is required or when I'm spraying. It works very well for water based paints, although I've had good success using it for oil and shellac. Like all tapes, you must burnish the edge for it to be effective. A wonderful product that I can recommend.
