Repainting 1968 Airstream Plaque

I am trying to repaint the blue background on my AIRSTREAM plaque and would like to know what kind of masking tape to use.

I used the (expensive) 3M blue painters tape for the borders but it is too thick/dark to do the letters properly. I can't really see where to cut the tape with an Exacto knife.

Best regards,

I have masked them off with clear shipping tape or the sticky laminating material so I could see what I was cutting.
