3M Scotch 230 Drafting Tape is designed for temporary layup needs, such as holding drawings, tracings, or other papers to blueprints or drawing boards. The tape is conformable and has low tack so it removes easily and cleanly without damaging work. Engineers and architects sometimes refer to this tape as "the second most useful tape in the world" since like duct tape it is very versatile and has many uses. Other uses include labeling and hanging lightweight drawings and posters. If standard masking tape is tearing your work upon removal then this is the tape to look at.
3M has discontinued their 230 Drafting tape and the tape they are suggesting as an alternative is their 3051 low tack paper tape which is also now stocked.
