What is the best way to remove Painter’s Mate Green® painting tape after painting?

What is the best way to apply Painter's Mate Green® painting tape to a surface?

Apply the tape in increments of approximately 12" as opposed to one long strip. If you apply painting tape in one long strip it stretches the tape, referred to as dragging, preventing the tape from laying flat and sticking to the surface. This results in paint bleeding under the tape, which leaves an unclean edge.
