Well, it's a little tricky cutting it on stretched canvas' because they have no back, but I just use an exacto knife (you can also buy artisit knives but they're pretty much the same thing as an exacto) & be very careful. On canvas boards it's not so bad.
As for tape, I usually use the thinner masking tape but because im out right now im using painters tape (the stuff you use when painting walls lol). It sticks well, cuts easy but doesn't leave the glue behind unless of course you leave it on for months!
If you get the uncolored stuff you can see the sketch underneith, which makes it easier to cut ;)
