This is my fave adhesive for attaching photos and paper. It has a super-smooth delivery and adheres so well. Too well, sometimes, because I sometimes can't get it off once I have attached the item down! The refills are really easy to change. I am refill-challenged and never have a problem with this one. Just snap the old one out and snap the new one in. It takes less than 30 seconds. The only down side is that sometimes when it is near the end, the adhesive can get a little gumped up on the applicator. I just remove it with a fingernail and it's good to go again. A definite must have for me!

Not knowing where to start in the aisles and aisles of scrapping supplies, I wandered over to the adhesives. Hah, piece of cake, I thought. Well, after trying many a different brand, I must admit my heart belongs to the Tombow Mono Adhesive. It sticks nicely, rolls nicely, and is easily transportable. The refills make it convenient too. My only wish is that there was a longer amount of adhesive on the refill... I do tend to go through it rather quickly. So grab one and a spare or two and get scrappin'!

I was introduced to this product by my Close to My Heart consultant who raved about it. I tried hers and from there I was hooked! I love that you just run the tape wherever it is needed and it holds REALLY well. I also love the ease of replacing the empty cartridge - something that's really important to me as I go through ALOT of adhesive. Extremely user friendly, holds well, is compact. Perfect for any need.

I love this adhesive. It is the easiest to work with and the price is not to unreasonable. I have tried other adhesives and always seem to have issues with half of the adhesive remaining in the roller, not with the Tombow. You don't have to press down so hard to get the adhesive out. It is one of the best on the market!

This adhesive is the one I use for most all of my "gluing." It's simple to use and I don't have to worry about wrinkling pages or spreading unevenly. It's great to use behind pictures for those very reasons-- I've used glue sticks on the backs of photos before which usually resulted in a wavy photo from the glue.
This is my absolute favorite adhesive. I have tried several and I always come back to this one! It is great for adhering paper, photos and even ribbon. When it is down it is down and I don't have to worry about it falling off. It is also super easy to refill!!

I love mono adhesive for scraping and cardmaking. It is so much easier than double sided tape or glue. And being able to buy the refills makes it that much easier. I use it for every craft need that needs adhesive....and the price is reasonable.

I have tried many adhesive since I began scrapbooking and by far this is my favorite. Easy to use and the main cartridges stay in tact, have not had to throw one away yet and it has been many years.

It's so easy to refill, and less expensive than buying a brand new runner. And it works like new each time it's refilled! Tombow has really made the whole gluing experience fast and fun!
This really is the best adhesive. It does not gunk or run, the price is great, it lasts a long time and the refills are easy to change. It doesnt get much better then that!

I was a glue stick user until someone recommended mono to me. I have never looked back! It is the best adhesive ever. An essential product for every scrapbooker.

This tape runner works really well! It glides along the paper with ease. Also, it makes precise stops. I love this!

I tried this on a recommendation of a friend when I ran out of my regular adhesive and couldn't find any refills. I have to say I am not thrilled with this. I find that half of the time it doesn't put down a full strip of adhesive. Usually about half of it is left on the tape. I'm using it now because I don't have any alternative, but as soon as I can find my refill I am going back to my other brand.

I've tried all sorts of adhesives for scrapbooks and card-making, and none measure up to this product. It's easy to use and sticks better than anything else, including some more expensive products. I like the fact that it's easily refillable too. I used to have photos and paper embellishments fall of the pages or cards, but not now since I found Tombo. Just a few swipes in the corners do the trick. I highly recommend this product!
After trying many adhesives, I've found this one to be my overall favorite. It's tacky enough to hold strong on my regular layouts as well as for my special little albums (like paper bag albums) and the papers won't lift as they do using the tab adhesives. (Although I do prefer tab adhesives behind my photos...) But as far as paper-to-paper adhering, this is the one for me.
I started out with little squares and quickly bought these on advice of a good friend...now every time I hit Joann's a bunch of refills go in my cart...they need more length , I agree...wouldn't be without it.
this has been my favorite for the last two years, it is a great product and does exactly what it is supposed to do. Easy to use and the replacement doesnt take a rocket scientist!!!
This is the only adhesive I have used so I may be biased but I really do like this product. It is easy to use. Doesn't get stuck or brake. The tape lasts a long time for me and it is easy to change out for a refill. Plus the refills are cheap and are really easy to find. Which is really the plus for me!
I don't know what I'm doing wrong with this, but the tape broke a couple times on me, and it was a major pain trying to tape it back together so it could scroll. Also, from the beginning, the used tape paper doesn't seem to want to scroll itself back onto the "used" portion. It ends up collecting and I have to manually scroll it back on. I just got another brand that works much better.
