Help - I am finally running out of my stock pile of the old style 3M Duck Adhesive runners. I DO NOT like tape style runners - the type that have little tape tabs. When I look at adhesive on-line it is hard to tell if they are "tape tabs" vs an actual adhesive type. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best non-tape adhesive?

I saw many posts about people loving their ATG tape guns and wondered what it was all about. I had been using the little squares with the tabs you had to remove to expose the glue. Anyways I got an ATG (on sale at M's) and realized what the fuss was all about! It is so much faster to use and actually is much less expensive than the other types. Have tried several other smaller tape runners and didn't like them and the refills are very pricy for the amount of tape you get. Some people don't care for the larger size ---- but I really like it ----- it doesn't get lost in the pile when I'm being creative. A few minutes and you've got it figured out. I rarely use any other adhesives. Also --- you can get some good deals on the refill rolls if you buy a quantity on ebay. Hope this helps.

i have a wanna be ATG (glue glider pro) and I like it but the refills are expensive and you have to watch how much you use. HOWEVER I do find a little goes a long way.

I also have smaller ones like the 3L

The Glue Glider and 3L have little rectangular strips of adhesive and some have dots other have tabs.

Not really sure what the dif sizes do...

I adore my ATG. It is probably my best scrappy tool. I buy my refills in bulk online and have no complaints about the price.

I love my Glue Glider Pro. However when I do a serious amount of work like massive matting and big pieces or Xmas cards and such I fall back on a fast and cheaper thing. Zip Glue.

Zip Dry Paper Glue - 2 ounce bottle

This is great and the best thing about it is that you have a few seconds to straighten things up before it sets. This saves me serious cash.

I remember the Duck!! Loved them!!
Bazzill just came out with a refillable dispenser that seems to use the same type of adhesive. I've only been using it for about a month, but I think I really like it The refills hold three times the amount of adhesive than the 3L tape runners that I've been using.

There's also another one similar to that type of adhesive that is also refillable, but much cheaper. Let me see if I can find it in the superstore because I don't remember the name of it.




OK--I can't find the 2nd tape runner, but I'll try to remember to look up the name this weekend. I have it at home.

Here is the Bazzill runner and refill though. The only trick with this one is that when you're applying the adhesive, you have to keep the runner flat. Other runners you can tilt it in your hand as you apply, and you can with this one also, but you'll get the top of the runner all gummy. Not a big deal, just pull it off and keep on going, but holding it flat avoids that problem.

I guess I am old school... I use tombo mono adhesive or herma squares... buy refills at Michaels with a 40% off coupon.

I don't know how I ever scrapped without my ATG.

IMO, it's the best invention ever.

I like the ATG too. I generally get the adhesive on sale... especially since a store within walking distance of me has started taking competitors coupons. Yeah! Makes it even cheaper.

Mishay I'm on my 2nd gun, my first one I had for 6 years before it took one drop to many and broke the cover I've been using on since I think 99.
