What is the best product to get pictures, notes, cards/certificates, ect. to stick on the cardstock permanently or for a long time?
I'm new to this. Haha:)

Thanks!!

I'm a fan of the ATG. A lot of us are. It's a bit pricey starting out (about $40.00 at Michaels) but there are constantly coupons for 40% or 50% off.

Once the initial purchase is made, then the adhesives are very reasonable, less than anything else out there in my opinion because the rolls are 90' long and come two in a box. I save a fortune on adhesives.

I also like that I don't have to change the tape often. I just bought a load of the tape online and it is 3M brand.

The current ATGs are pink but they were red - no difference at all other than color of the dispenser.

I think it is the best out there for permanent holding power. When you put something down, be serious about it because it is going to stay!

Ditto everything this lovely lady said.

Thirding the recommendation of the ATG. The initial investment is a bit high but I've found it worth every penny.

I also like 3L photo squares (I buy the packs of 1000), Glue Dots, and the Zig two-way glue pen (not the squeeze-and-roll, but the one like a felt-tip marker).

I use the Zip too for letters or detailed diecuts and embellies. But I've bought the squeeze and roll by mistake in the past - never again. I hate the squeeze and roll. Like Aquabunny said, the two-way Zip glue pen is the one to look for.

I really like my pink ATG... but today I got my first Kokuyo Glue Adhesive... It's suppose to be the most wonderful adhesive in the whole wide world! :o)
I bought the removable type because it gives me some time to "change my mind" and then becomes permanent.... I do have some problems with the ATG... because once is down.... is down!
