Default 1/64" Striping tape

Does anyone have a source on the internet for 1/64" striping tape to do panel lines with? How much does it cost you and how many feet do you get?

Has anyone tried the striping tape for fingernails? Don't laugh, it was about the only thing I could find available in 1/64", costs $2 for about 650 feet of the tape. I might give it a try if no one else has a better source, although I will probably need help explaining to the wife why I am ordering stuff from a fingernail painting website.

Thanks for the help...

Try an art supply store, or a blueprint/drafting supply store. The brand name you are looking for is "Chart-Pak". Personally I thought the 1/64" tape was far too narrow. I had much better luck with the 1/32" tape. Look for the glossy tape instead of the flat tape, it seems to hold up better when you are piling on the primer. I found a cheap imitation at a local art supply store, but it was junk, and I tossed it. Settle for Chart-Pak only, it's worth the extra cost.
