I have not found a supplier (hopefully online) for book binding tape in colors. Anyone know of one?

Thanks

Would Gaffer's tape be a decent substitute? It's cloth tape, not plastic-coated like Duct Tape.

I am not sure. Duct tape leaves a sticky residue at the sides and when you make a trick it stick together or gets on your hands. Does Gaffer tape sitck good and not have this residue?

There would be a residue, so probably not for your needs.

You might look at the Blue Painter's tape that you can find at your local hardware store. It more of the strenght of masking tape, but it might work for your needs. I did a quick google search on Book Repair Tape and found a number of references to library supply houses that seem to carry 3M tape and others. Likely a good source.

We sometimes use a heat binding system here at work that has colored tape spines with a hot glue inside, so it seems you could pick a fabric and use stitch witch with an iron to make a hot glue binding, just add an extra strip of the stich witch if you need more adhesive in an area.
