    I wouldn't reccomend it. Try cover the label with masking/duct tape or my personal favorite, a Post-it Note. I find that Hello My Name Is tags work very well too. They're almost the perfect size for the top label face.

    Although, if you've taped onto the VHS to the point that you're out of label space i'd reccomend buying a new tape. after that many re-recordings the quality of the tape degrades greatly quite fast even on SP.

    Hey Vegas Man,

    Go buy a new tape. You can't spackle, tape, glue, and paste these tapes. They are pretty delicate. It's not a stupid question but it sure is a lot of trouble to go through dude.

    Check the prices of blank tapes and you'll see it's not worth the aggravation okay?

    On the tape stuff inside the vhs tape itself? That won't work. If you want to write something on the outside put a new sticker on it :D. Or go to dollar general and buy a new tape for $1.00.
