    BG Rub-on Roller (11-Jan-08)

    I might be a little biased ;), but I'm writing this review because I know alot of people think they dont need a specific tool for rub-ons. Really you do! What's different about this tool as compared to a stylus or popsicle stick is the NON-friction application. The rub-on roller's ball bearing is hanging from a suspension spring so that the ball moves over the paper easily and effortlessly (alot like a ball point pen), without dragging or getting caught on the paper backing. What this means especially, is that the paper doesn't skip or move on you causing those rub-ons to break or crack. It doesn't take alot of pressure and it's tip is narrow enough to allow for precision application of those tightly packed and delicate/fine rub-ons.

    Can't do without it (12-Oct-08)

    I love, *LOVE* this rub-on tool! It has a large, smooth rolling ball point similiar to a ball point pen that makes intricate, small, or crunched together rub-ons easy to apply. It has a nice solid feel about it too, and a comfort grip. The paddle end is also awesome. Not only is it a great way to go over your rub-on again to make sure it adheres well, but I've also used it as a "spatual" to lift up cardstock, paper, and other embellishments when I didn't like the initial placement. This helps keep those items from crinkling when doing that. All in all, a great tool.

    Throw away those popsicle sticks!! (07-May-08)

    I must say that I was a little skeptical when I saw this. But I used it for the first time this past weekend, and I was delighted!! I purposely tried it for the first time on some of my rub-on alphas that I knew were pretty difficult. But with the Basic Grey Rub-on tool, it was smooth and easy!! I was like a little kid playing with their favorite toy - giddy and excited!

    If you use alot of rub-ons on your projects...run, run right now to the sb.com superstore and put this tool in your cart immediately!! I'm here to tell you, that you will not regret it!!

    If you like having a cramped hand don't get this tool! (09-Mar-10)

    If you like cracked rub ons and missing pieces, don't get this tool!

    If you like taking forever to apply large rub ons, don't get this tool!

    If you like working for hours on a LO only to have it look less than stellar because the rub on didn't lay down smoothly, don't get this tool!

    If working with popsicle sticks instead of a quality tool is your idea of the way things should be, don't get this tool!

    Me . . . I LOVE this tool! And have given it as gifts to all of my rub-on lovin' friends! So worth it!

    How did I go so long without this? (01-Jan-09)

    This is my most recent purchase to add to my arsenal of scrapbooking tools. I {{ LOVE }} it!!! I read some of the reviews about this tool but thought that I could get by with the popsicle stick. What could this do better than the stick? It's amazing yet so simplistic!! Sorry but I wouldn't trade it in and those popsicle sticks?!?!?!!!!!! They all get relegated to the trash without a second thought.

    LOVE IT (18-Apr-14)

    OMG, I need to buy another one. I'm so afraid by using this so much, it's going to break and then I will cry.
    I have arthritis in my hands and this is so darn good and easy to use.
    Also the design on the front of package if you turn it around there is a bigger one that you can cut out and use in your art projects or bookmark. So beautiful the black scrolls on pink.

    Easy Roller....makes life really smooth! (19-May-09)

    Okay, I'm not one to write a lot of these reviews...but this is so easy and helps with getting the rub-ons on! The roller glibes nicely over and helps with getting all of the rub-on to adhere nicely! It's so nice not to have to rub with the stick over and over again. If you don't have it in your tool box, you should get one! Or two and share with a friend!

    Surprisingly useful (09-Jul-08)

    Like other reviewers, I ordered this thinking it was a frivolous tool--but it's actually worth ordering! It's easy to rub-on exactly what you want and leave the rest behind. This is great when you run out of certain letters in alpha books and have to "fashion" them out of other letters (say, making an 'e' out of a 'c'). Definitely love this product!

    Burnishes well without dragging or effort (10-Mar-14)

    I bought this not just for rub-ons but for making pencil drawing transfers to other materials. This works better than a bone folder or other burnisher because it is more ergonomic and actually covers more of the area better and more smoothly. I haven't used the roller-ball end yet, but I can see that it will also work for smaller spots.

    LOVE IT! (13-Aug-10)

    Took a class at a Show and they let us use this tool for rub ons and let me tell you.. I have shied away from using rub ons cuz they usually are a pain but not with this great tool. It has a little roller that really gets the rub ons onto your page and keeps them there. I would diffidently recommend everyone have this tool!!

    Works like a charm (29-Jun-08)

    I didn't think I'd need something like this but based on others' reviews, I went ahead and purchased and could not be happier with my purchase. It works as advertised and way better than popsicle sticks or even a bone folder. Great price for a quality BasicGrey product that will be used for years to come.

    Works BEAUTIFULLY! (21-Jan-13)

    This product does just what the manufacturer says it does! I LOVE using it for transferring photographs from rub-on paper! I don't really use the stylus end as much as I do the blade end but that is just because I mainly work with 3 inch pieces or larger at a time as I do Christmas ornaments and such.

    rub on tool (26-Jan-08)

    I really love this tool..takes so much less effort then a STICK, and I like the rubber end that you run over the rub-on first to help hold it in place..could not believe that my fingers and wrist did not hurt from rubbing it was great..if you love rub-ons you need this tool !!!!

    didn't even know I needed (15-Aug-09)

    This is one of those products that I didn't think I needed, but now I can't live without. The roller is smooth and easy to use, and allows me to apply rub ons perfectly. It doesn't snag, crinkle the paper or scratch. It just makes scrapping go smoother. Well worth it.

    Complete large rub ons in no time! (07-Jun-08)

    Great tool! Allows you to complete large rub ons very quickly because of the wide surface on one end, while still providing the ability to complete thin, delicate ones using the narrow end. Sturdy, well-made product typical of Basic Grey.

    Great simple tool (16-Oct-08)

    This makes rub ons go on so easy. The roller slides over the rub on with out any need for repeat rubbing or excess pressure. The price is great. In fact they are going in christmas stockings this year for my girls that scrap.

    Don't know how I went without for so long (11-Jul-10)

    I haven't used this on any projects yet but did test it on some of my most stubborn rub ons. It worked great! They actually stuck! I am so impressed. I don't know how or why I went without for as long as I did.

    Rub On Roller Rocks (21-May-09)

    Everything they say about this nifty little tool is true. It is sooooo easy to use. And it doesnt leave indents on your paper like popsicle sticks can. Every scrapper should have one of these in their tool tote.

    Awesome Tool!! (09-Feb-09)

    I love this thing! It is wonderful. It works so well!! Much, much better than just a popsicle stick to add rub ons to your project. You just run it right over the rub on and it goes on perfectly. Love it!!

    good bye popsicle stick, Hello style (23-Jun-08)

    Ok, I have used that silly little popsicle stick for a long time. rubbing away hopping to not mess us my masterpiece I am trying to create. But I am now set free from the stick. When I use my BasicGrey tool I know I am going to be able to put down my rub-on without any error. I mean no more cracking or missing part of a letter because I didn't press down hard enough. This tool is the key to great rub ons. If you are waiting to get yours, don't. Don't wait get yours TODAY!!!! Its Awsome.

    Amazing Little Tool - Worth the Purchase! (19-Feb-11)

    This product is GREAT! It almost always gets all the rub-on. I did have trouble with old rub-ons getting all way on the page, but I assume that is the run-on. It has the roller ball and the flat edge to make sure you get it all.

    Additionally, I have use the roller ball to semi emboss my paper so it stands up a bit. I like to use it on my little leaves for my flowers to give them dimension.

    Worth the purchase!!

  • pleasantly surprised (21-Jan-08)

    Wow...I initially bought this because I'm a Basic Grey lover and figured it would be good. To be honest though...I figured it wouldn't be anything special.
    Well....I was wrong...and pleasantly surprised! The tip is nice and smooth and doesn't tear the rub-on or backing and I can apply really small Heidi Swapp letters (which I previously struggled with them tearing and not completely applying) that come in folders.
    After using the ball point type tip, then I use the other paddle side to be sure it's all smoothed down and Voila!! I want to get another one to keep in my AMM Totally Tool Tote 2.
    BTW...I'm not an employee of BG or AMM!
    Get this!!!!! YOu will not be disappointed!

    Will Make You Love Rub Ons (03-Jun-09)

    If you are one of those people that shy away from rub ons because of past mixed results.... I can so relate because that was me. I would worry about ruining a layout that I had worked so hard on with sub standard rub ons. Well what I have found was MOST of the problem is that the applicator makes a world of difference in getting full coverage & the results you want. The BG applicator does just that. It also doesn't leave indentations on your page from the applicator like the wood sticks & pointy sticks do. This is a must have tool in your tote caddy.

  • Fabulous (11-Mar-08)

    How much do I love this tool? Yep...that much! I have used tons of different rub on tools, everything from the popsicle stick that comes in the package, bone folder, stylus, other makes of "rub on tools". This is the easiest tool yet. The roller works so well. It allows very precise control of the tool (which is great if you don't like cutting up your sheets of rub ons), and just glides over the project! Other tools I have used you have to rub...sometimes hard...over your project. It is so smooth and easy!

    Try it out...you won't be sorry!

  • If you like rub-ons, this tool is a MUST HAVE! (08-Mar-09)

    Honestly, if you use rub-ons at all, throw away your Popsicle sticks and buy one of these as fast as you can! This tool makes using rub-ons in your layout so much easier. I used to use the sticks included, and I messed up as many rub-ons as I did properly. Since I bought this tool, I have not had one rub-on mess up. It has two sides to it and I use both of them depending on the size of the rub-on and the place that I am putting it on. It truly is a remarkable little tool that I couldn't live without! No more wasted rub-ons for me!

  • Rubs on the Rub-Ons perfectly! (25-Jun-08)

    I don't own one of these yet but it is high on the list of things to get. I used one at my LSS and I can tell you that it does its job and it does it well! They were having a make-and-take and had quite a few different brands of rub-ons, some that I know are typically harder to get a clean design from, and it worked perfectly! It has a roller end for small details and a flat end that works great for larger portions of the rub-on. I highly recommend this tool for rub-ons, and whatever else you could find to use it with.

    Thank you Ladies! (11-Oct-08)

    I have to admit that I have a rub on addiction. Seriously, I should get help. I have been having trouble with a few rub ons that I purchased a while ago. I have one other applicator and it still wasn't getting the job done.

    After reading all of the wonderful reviews (by you lovelies), I purchased this, and I am so glad that I listened to others! It works wonderfully, and I seem to get better results now that I have this tool!

    I was amazed (20-Dec-08)

    I was honestly amazed the first time I used this tool. It's often difficult to get rub-ons down smooth, but with this rub-on roller I really won't worry about it any more. The ball roller on this tool is smooth, quick and clean. Unlike Popsicle sticks, which can often pull and push at rub ons, this tool rolls smoothly on top of the rub-on, never pushing at it. I highly recommend this tool to anyone who uses rub-ons.

    Best Little Tool! (23-Jul-08)

    If you're using rub-on's you HAVE to have this tool!!! Use it once and you'll never go back to popsicle sticks. I've tried other rub-on tools, but they have never worked very well. This on has a ball tip that puts even pressure on the rub-on. Once you finished applying the rub-on, use the other end with the flat part to smooth out the rub-on, sealing any loose edges. You won't regret buying this!!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS; BEST INVESTMENT (30-Jul-09)

    This tool is a must have. Prior to my purchase I used to use the little sticks that came with the package, and I seemed to mess up the application of the rub-on to my surface. I experimented with other items which seemed to work better for me at the time. But, after investing in one of these; this is just a must have. It makes the application of the rub-on to your surface so much easier.

  • too perfect to pass up!! (06-Mar-08)

    I saw the ads. I questioned its practicality for a while. I glanced at it on the shelf. I put it in my basket, and figured I would try it out.

    OMG! This is the most awesome tool I have used in a LONG time! The rub-ons come off with such accuracy and the tool glides across, back and forth SO QUICKLY! I will never use a popcicle stick AGAIN! I highly recommend this product!!

  • BasicGrey - Rub-On Roller Tool...it's a Must Have (07-Mar-08)

    I have always considered myself rub-on challenged. I love the the looks of them, but can never get them to apply evenly. I have ruined more projects due to rub-on malfunction or user error...LOL...that I completely gave up on using them! Well, that was until I got my hands on the magnificent tool! This truly does make a difference. Definitely worth every cent and then some!!!

    BasicGrey - Rub-On Roller Tool (02-Dec-08)

    I love this tool! It's great for my rub-ons. I stored away all my rub-ons because I was really tired of the popsicle and the other rub-on tool from EKSucess which I purchased twice was not helpful at all. In a matter of fact I gave it to my best friend because she loved it so much and I had to go buy another one!! This tool is a must buy! Love this tool!! Happy Scraping!

    How did I live without it?? (07-Apr-09)

    I love rub-ons but wasted so many because the popsicle stick just didn't do the job getting the transfer completed. When I found this new-at-the-time tool, I thought the price would be worth it if it could improve my chances of using rub-ons successfully. I was not disappointed! My only problem is getting it back from my friends who borrow it at crops!

    The Best Rub On Tool (08-Mar-08)

    I just bought this and it is amazing. It is the easier rub on tool to use by far. It doesn't take much to get the rub ons on the paper now. With other tools, it would take quite a few passes to get the rub on to stick, but this one is amazing! It has a roller ball tip and a spatula tip and both are very handy! Totally recommend this tool to everyone!!!

  • The Best! (01-Mar-09)

    I was able to use this at my lss. It is without a doubt the best! Of course, I had to purchase one! It has a ball bearing in the tip. It glides so nicely, making it so easy to use my rub ons. It has some substance to it - well made. A thousand times better than the popsicle stick!!! Another favorite BG item for me!

  • Awesome! (02-May-09)

    With this tool it takes a lot less time applying my run ons, and it's a lot easier! It ensures you get every little piece so you're not going back to fix little mistakes.

  • so useful (22-Jul-13)

    I love this tool! I find it doesn't leave marks on my paper like the popsicle sticks do. I have 2, one for at home and one for on the go!

    Very helpful! (05-Jun-08)

    I wasn't sure about this tool--but now I am glad I have it! I had a pack of rubons that just wouldn't rub OFF their backing! I tried the opsicle stick, I tried the back of one of my other tools--nothing worked! THen I picked up the BG rubon tool. The ballpoint is great--it is easier to control and the squeegee end is agreat idea--just swipe over the completed rubon before you lift the plastic sheet and the rub on is sure to be smooth and adhered to your paper. A definite must have!

  • Better than I thought (05-Jun-08)

    I never saw the point of getting a rubon tool when every package of rubons I have ever bought came with some sort of tool. This is much better than a Popsicle could ever be! The large end makes it sooo easy to do the big rubons and be more confident that you didn't miss a part of the rubon.

  • not so exciting (12-Nov-09)

    I was really looking forward to using this tool after my success with the sanding tools I purchased by BG. Unfortunately, I have not been impressed by this roller. I've found it leaves flattened areas on my card stock where I've applied rub-ons, and it isn't any easier than the basic popsicle stick. Sometimes I do use the burnishing side though.

    It marks up my pictures! (22-Sep-12)

    This thing was NOT designed well. It has a raised ridge down the center of the side you press with which if you are not careful enough, will leave an ugly scratch and/or crease in your preciuos pictures. Pass this stupid thing up.
