I bought the Scotch 3M initiallly repositional photo splits when I first began, a few months ago, and I have noticed that some pics are starting to lift from the pages. Anyone have this problem? i originally thought it was because the cardstock I used was textured, now I think the product just isn't that great. I browsed the ATG guns, based on other posts in the forum, but they are Scotch 3M products n I am wary now. So the question is, whose using these products and n what do you like? Meanwhile, I have refastened my lifted photos w/ creative memories splits that are holding well. Thanks, Chris
I wouldn't trust anything repositionable to last. But I love love love almost everything from 3M (I even took a picture of the corporate sign when we drove by it a few months ago, lol). ATG is excellent.
I never use the repositionable tabs on anything, I didn't trust them. I have used both the Creative Memories, Fiskars, Scotch and 3L photo tabs/splits and have never had a problem with any except on glitter papers.
I always just assumed that repostionable products, by definition, were not intended to hold products indefinitely. So, I've never tried to use any of them that way.
I do sometimes use them for temporary purposes while I work on project (masking or precise placement concerns leap to mind).
That is especially so since I got the Scotch ATG. I've found that adhesive is very strong, and what it sticks, doesn't easily come loose. I have also used and liked other Scotch products (like their glue and photo corners). The ATG and the glue are actually the products I'm using currently, and I'm liking them very well indeed. I've also used and liked the Creative Memories splits.
The only permanent adhesive I've every really had trouble with when dealing with textured paper issues is the Herma Tabs. I gave up on that quite a while ago, they are apparently still selling so maybe they've improved or I was the only one to not care for them
