3m painters tape is not very sticky. If the area is low traffic (not likely to get disturbed/damaged) and not in direct sunlight or near a vent/airstream, you can put it on more than a week in advance.

Anything more than a few weeks, and you can damage the underlying paint. However, it should not be a major concern.

If it is in direct sunlight or near an airstream, it can dry out and loose adhesion.

The green tape called FROG TAPE lasts up to 60 days on interior surfaces.

It has a special glue that reacts to moisture and "pushes" out the edge of the tape instead of allowing the paint to leak in.

Awesome stuff!
