I have been using the Tombo w tape runner for a while now, but the refills I had bought in bulk are almost used up. I've been somewhat happy with them, except that the tape doesn't always lay edge to edge, and it's not as smooth once you get about halfway into the roll.

So my question to you is... Is there a tape runner that you love so much you are loyal to it? Are there any that you would recommend to avoid?

TIA for your help and advise!

My favorite is the Herma Vario . I roll the tabs onto my finger first and then place them where I want them.

I just discovered Glue Dots . LOVE THEM!! I also love my xyron X for small things. I've tried a couple of tape runners but just don't like them so I stick to these.

I love tape runners too! Glue is not my friend... any type or brand. I use Dotto and love it!

I used to use mono Tombo but found that over time objects became loose. So I used up what I had and invested in an ATG....might be pricey up front but it is so worth it and there is so much adhesive per roll that it is so worth it! wonder why it took me so long!

I really like my Herma Dotto , but I still have trouble with the refills! LOL! I have a Tombo w too but I don't care for that as much. I use double sided tape too depending on what kind of mood I'm in! I might be adhesive addicted, hard to say for sure!

I have one of these and haven't used it much yet. I never thought of doing this.

I love my ATG 714. I used to use a Tombo but now it is my ATG or Glue Dots only.

I've been using the Mono Adhesive for over a year. I really like it although sometimes it does get kinda stupid right in the middle of the cartridge. I also started using xyron 's adhesive roller but the refills don't last that long.

I'm seriously considering an ATG, but can't afford it at this point.

I also purchased the new Glue Dots on a roller. That's kinda neat.
