Sometimes I’m asked about how to do page repairs. Really, no variety of Scotch tape is good for those types of things. The tape (and the page) will turn yellow and it’s really only a temporary fix.
What you need is document repair tape. It is made out of this Japanese tissue and has a peel off back. You can order it from Hollanders. com. Unfortunately they have a $10.00 minimum shipping so it drives the price up a bit from the normal cost which is maybe $7.00 a roll. I think what they sell is 1/2 inch wide, but you can slice it down the middle to save on tape.
If you only need a foot of it or, give me a holler and I’ll sell it to you at an astronomical price! 🙂
