Chris, one thing that helps a lot is to pull the tape back over itself as much as possible. If you take it off at an accute an angle as possible, as opposed to perpendicular to the surface it is on, the paint will not peel as much.
Something else that is supposed to help, but is a pain to do is to put the tape on cloth, your tee shirt or the leg of your jeans works fine, then pull the tape off and apply it to the wall. This takes some of the "tack" off the tape but still allows it to stick. Hope this helps. :o) Henry
