  2. Introducing Limited Edition KT Tape

    From Kool Aid dyed hair to snapback hats, everyone has their own unique sense of style.  Whether it is vintage, contemporary, eclectic, or sporty, KT Tape recognizes that many of us want to be unique.  What better way to show off your own unique style than with our limited edition tape rolls?

    KT Tape has always tried to stock a wide variety of solid colors.  Our cotton tape began with four colors: black, beige, pink, and royal blue.  Over time, those four colors expanded to 16 and were later narrowed down to eight colors in cotton and ten colors in PRO.  Last October, we introduced our first limited edition patterned rolls--Polkadot and Chevron—at some of our events.  Finding success with these limited edition rolls, we introduced Sparkle tape at select Disney events this year.  With rolls quickly selling out, we knew we were onto something. As a result, KT Tape decided to roll out a new tape each month and call it our “Tape of the Month” tape. 

    Patriotic TapeEach month, we will roll out a new tape design along a specific theme or holiday.  Our in-house Design Team will create multiple designs and then our Marketing Team will vote on their favorites. These designs will then be narrowed down to a handful for voting within the KT Tape Community.   Your input is important to us so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to vote on our tape designs each month.  Our next voting will be in July when we ask for you to vote on your favorite tape for November's Tape of the Month, which will be a holiday-themed tape.

    This month, we reveal our first Tape of the Month roll for July--Fireworks.  These limited edition rolls will be available exclusively on our website, at events, and at select retail locations.  Quantities for the rolls will be limited, so check our website regularly to see what’s in stock.  Once we sell out, we will not re-stock.  However, if we discover that a tape is really popular, we will consider featuring as part of our regular product line.

    Check out our Tape of the Month limited edition tapes on our website atLimited Editions. Why wear just solid colors when you can mix them up and create your own unique look with our limited edition patterned tape?

  4. Q & A: Is it okay to use multiple tape applications on one specific area?

    For example, can I tape my Achilles while also taping for plantar fasciitis?

    Multiple tape apps

    "The simple answer to this question is, yes, it is perfectly fine to apply multiple applications in most situations.  In fact, in the clinic it is fairly rare that I use a single application technique in isolation.  For example, with an acute lateral ankle sprain I may use a lymphatic assisting application to decrease swelling that uses no stretch on the tape while also using a lateral ankle technique which places moderate stretch on the tape in order to provide improved feedback and stability over the injured area.  In this example, two very different techniques are utilized to achieve separate goals for the same injury.

  6. Q & A: Can I Hurt Myself With Kinesiology Tape?

    “What if I apply the tape incorrectly? Can I hurt myself if it is not the right application?”

    No. Typically we look for "best methods" in taping. If we tape appropriately, then the chance of injury is almost zero. -- Joe McCaleb, Licensed Physical Therapist, Colorado Springs, CO

  7. Tips & Tricks: How to get your tape to stick better

    Do you sweat a lot?  Do you live in an area with a lot of humidity?  KT Tape is specially designed to withstand the elements and stay on for the long haul.  However, sometimes humidity and high temperatures or oily/sweaty skin can prevent the tape from adhering like it normally does.  We’d like to offer a trick to use when applying our tape to help it stick better:

    Before applying our tape, try prepping the skin first with rubbing alcohol.  Rubbing alcohol helps to remove unseen dirt and oils.  By applying rubbing alcohol, you give the tape a clean, fresh area to stick to. Once the area has been cleaned, you’re ready to apply the tape. We recommend using this trick before any application, but it will be especially helpful for those who sweat a lot or who live in very humid areas.

    With this new trick from KT Tape, we’ll help you get moving in the right direction.  Stick with us and we’ll help you stay on top.
