For those of you without the ATG guns (cause I can't afford it yet). Which Adhesive do you use?

I currently use xyron 's adhesive in the orange refillable container. Its not holding everything in place all the time. Occasionally when I look at older work the pictures have fallen off the LO. I was trying to get an idea of what people like on here. I'm looking at getting the ATG gun around Christmas time but I need something until then that works.

I'm forever trying different adhesives, but currently I'm using Hermafix for PP and photos, and for textured cardstock I'm using Scotch Scrapbooker's Glue which is like a pen with a thick end and a thin end. It is a clear gel and works great like I said for textured cardstock but wrinkles/bubbles when you use it on thin items like PP or photos. I also LOVE Glue Dots for chipboard, etc.

I use the little adhesive squares with the blue backs that fly everywhere. I've been using them for 10 years and all my old stuff is still stuck.

For paper and for pictures I use Herma Vario tabs. I get the refills with my Coupons from M's or J's.

I've heard great things about the ATG gun, I just can't see spending 60 bucks just for the dispenser (then you have to buy the actual tape for it separate!)

I have used a lot of expensive ones and then a friend showed my these adtech ones from Wallys. They are very sticky and are cheap. a pkg of 2 refills is $2.27. I grab 1 or 2 every time I am in the store.

I love the 2 sided tacky tape and it is tacky!!
The tape runner is so easy to use, sometimes too easy, I find I can overuse it, LOL!
...and you can't go wrong with Glue Dots . They stick extremely well and I like that there's pop dots too!

These are the ones that I like plus I use the vellum adhesive that comes in a roll. I have had 2 different sizes and I am still using both of them for the last 2 years at least. I use it for EVERYTHING. I just found out about the Zip dry which is also very awesome for everything.

I do have an ATG gun which I love but I still use Zots which are awesome...also I use my Creative Memories adhesive every once in a while too but I am not a huge fan of it.

Zots are cool though...especially the 3D ones.

I use the Tombo w too, I have also used the Hermia, but I find that the Tombo w works on every thing.

Ditto! I LOVE these! These for practically everything and mini Glue Dots for the 3-D stuff and xyron for the hard-to-get-adhesive-on stuff. I'm set!

I used to use Herma tabs but my stuff starts falling off my pages after weeks/months (like when I used to use glue sticks). My Herma Dotto only works for the first half roll too. The photo splits (w/ the blue backing) worked well, and I still have some of those on hand, but I prefer the quickness of the glue runner.

I use Herma Vario Tabs to adhere my photos, and then use Tombo or Glue Dots for everything else.

I have also used the AdTech adhesive that you can purchase at Beverly's or Wal-Mart, and that works well also.
