I am starting to really not like the adhesive I use just because it takes too long. (below) What is your favorite adhesive and why?

i forgot what brand it is...it's a pretty basic one and sold just about everywhere. it is just white double sided tape squares. i've been using it for years and i like it.

I really starting to like good old fashioned "Photo Safe" double sided tape.

My problem with what I use is that it takes up extra time to peel the blue backing off all of the little squares and then the blue backing gets everywhere! The good thing is that its cheap.

I really, really like my ATG Gun! I got it after reading all of the positive responses from people on here! It works well, and it seems to last me a long time!

I've tried every adhesive there is...and my fav is Kokuyo Dot 'N Roller. It's easy, quick...and strong.

I really like my Herma Dotto or the Tombo w runner. They both work awesome!

I just ordered one of these and I bet if you ask me again in a week or two, I'll tell you the same thing. Right now I'm still using Duck Brand tape runner. I love them. Good strong adhesive and easy, easy to use, but the expense really adds up after awhile. I'm hoping the ATG is going to save me some money in the long run.

I use the Herma Dotto Removable adhesive for my pictures and if I don't completely know which direction a layout is going, I use the removable adhesive (just in case :)) I like it that it is easily removable.

I also use the Tombo w permanent adhesive for my papers for when I know that I have the layout complete. I like it because it sticks!

Below are some of my favorites!

I love the adhesive squares so much that I don't mind the little blue squares. To me it is easy and not messy at all. I use the Fiskar's brand.

I use the mounting squares with the blue backing. I've been using them for 10 years so why switch now? I've tried tape runners and I always go back to my adhesive squares. They're cheap and they get the job done well.

I was scrapbooking this weekend and was having issues with my Herma Dotto runner, and it was close to running out.

So I dug out some mounting squares and used them for any square things I was attaching.
They did not stick very well! The things I used it on started coming up.

After constantly running out to buy refills for my Tombo w or Scotch tape dispensers, I've finally purchased an ATG gun. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. It was a big purchase but I figure it'll savee me lots in the long run -- the little refills for the others added up quickly.

Love my Removable Dotto too, couldn't live without it because I'm ALWAYS taking stuff up after I've glued it down.

I use three things depending on size and item. Tacky glue, Glue Dots , or the good old xyron 2.5" or 5".
