Question DRYWALL any 1

I was watching this old house. and Tom had this colored sticky paper. for marking the location of electrical boxes on the back of drywall. for the cut out. and as we all know they never tell you what it is called or even where you can get the stuff. does any 1 know what it is called. and where to get the stuff. or is all the drywall dust making me see things that are not real.:conf used:

or just use colored powder, like the blue stuff you put in a chaulk line and dab it on the box and press the sheet on it.
last time i had to sheetrock my neighbor loaned be a little hand held router with a special bit for sheetrock. find the outside of box and just cut it out.
better than marking a piece and than haveing to turn it around to see the mark and makes a perfect fit much easier

not sure of the name but could it be Frogtape or Powershift93 use an old lipstick and put on edges of electrical outlet box then place drywall sheet and gently tap around where your outlet is on the drywall sheet then you should have the marking of where to cut for the outlet

that blue powder is not a bad idea either.

Hey Todd,
Just measure. It's not hard a'tall. Little slower than the tape or whatever but you're not on production.
