Tape and glue involve applying glue to a strip of specialized tape that runs the seam length below both turf parts. Then, both sides are pushed to the glue. Allow the seam to set for around 24 hours before placing a lot of foot traffic on it, as this may undo your careful alignment.
Entails are simply nailing in non-galvanized pegs on either side of the seam in a staggered formation. It is also viable, but only for grass that will receive low or medium traffic levels. It might be your best option if you expect your traffic level to be pretty low.
