If I were to change from using cm adhesive/ tape runner what should I switch to?

You didn't say why you would want to change. I use three types of glue on my LO's. I always use the ATG on the back of my photos. I found that sometimes a liquid or wet glue can make photos buckle or not lay down evenly. I like glue pen for attaching a most everything else. It allows a tiny stream of glue to be dispensed. You need glue dots for fabrics and lace and acetate pieces so it does not show thru.

The only other one you might need is something like E6000 if you are attaching metal, plastic or something heavy.

I also have a spray glue but I got that to adhere vinyl fabric to an album so it was a special project.

So, I think you need more than one type. Does that help?

Thanks! I am worried that if the cm company stops carrying the tape runner adhesive I will need to change-sounds like the ATG would be a good choice.

The ATG is the closest to a tape runner. But do you think CM will discontinue their adhesives? I would think they would be pretty staple products, wouldn't you?

I am not sure about anyone else, but I have been using Tombow for many years and love the product.

Yes, Rosie, I'm convinced that CM will do away with their adhesives as we know them.

I think the scotch brand tape runners are the closest to CM at the moment. (In fact, IIRC, Scotch made CM's adhesive up until the bankruptcy). I'm not quite sure what I'm switching to when I use up my existing inventory of adhesive, but it will probably be photo squares.

I use duck brand tape runners when my purdy pink ATG is out of adhesive and I don't have a chance to get more.

The MyStik refills are the closest/most comparable I've found to CM.

I think that my ATG is the second best purchase I have ever made for scrapbooking. It pays for itself, and it's big enough you will never loose it on your scrap table

I have to say my ATG is the best thing ever. I was always a CM adhesive girl but I found when I was doing a ton of scrapping that I was going through the adhesive to quickly so I switched to my ATG.

At the moment, it's not bad. At the time I lost the ATG....very, very deep.

I lose mine every once in a while. I'm going to have my husband invent some sort of contraption that suspends my ATG from the ceiling by a stretchy cable. That way it stays out of my way but it's there when I need it Hmm... I wonder if SB.com would carry my new product line of tool suspenders

I'm all about my ATG 714. I use it for practically everything. I will sometimes use glue dots and liquid adhesive, when I have something (like a 3-D flower) that needs to be stuck down. And just this weekend I had something (a major 3-D flower and leaves) that I used hot glue on. But for all around adhesive, you can't beat the ATG!
