I love the glue glider pro. I visited my local scrapbook store and was first introduced when I left my own adhesives at home. I fell in love with it and now I have ordered and received one of my own.
When I first saw the glue glider I thought it looked way too big to precisely administer adhesive to some of my smallest projects. He it isn't. It has this little wheel on the back that lets you apply as little as one tiny piece of tape to using it as a regular tape runner and applying lots of adhesive in a smooth and fluid motion.
The glue glider pro is pretty balanced to. You can work with it all day long without it feeling heavy of jamming up.
The glue glider cartridges come in many different forms. Replacing them is very quick and easy. You only need one holder to work with several different types of adhesive at once.
I give the glue glider pro a big thumbs up!!!

I really like the Glue Glider Pro from Glue Arts. I'm always on a quest to find the most adhesive for the least money! Not living close to a scrapbook store I know how frustrating it can be to run out of adhesive in the middle of a project and discover that there's not a refill in my stash. I was thrilled at the way that this product was designed too, it doesn't get lost in my "creative mess" when I'm working. The replacement cartridges are easy to change too! Definately a keeper.
I bought this glue gun when I ran out of glue dots and this was all I could find at the time. I really didn't think I'd like it. I thought it would probably be big and awkward...but, BOY! was I wrong!!
I do prefer the glue strip - not the dots. I've found that the little strips go exactly where I want them to go.
Every time I place an order...I almost always add a couple of refill cartridges to my order. I KNOW I don't want to run out of this adhesive!

I have tried many adhesives but this is my newest fave tool! This tool is the perfect size and not as big and clumsy as some of the other glue guns like it on the market. It is easy to use and the adhesive has a strong hold. The cartridges are quick and easy to replace and they go a long way! You can't beat the price of the refills either! I highly recommend this product.
I think I have found the glue for me! I have been searching high and low and trying every product on this site. What I wanted was easy application, good hold, great price and most of all NO mess.
My first day with this gun today and I have found all of that! A scrapbook.com friend actually recommeded it to me and I took her up on it. This rocks!!!

Recently purchased this adhesive applicator and am really enjoying using it. It is amazing light for its size and easy to use. Love that it has so much tape on a roll. Have yet to need to refill. My only negative is that I would like a cover over the tip when not in use. If it touches anything it sticks and wastes a bit of the adhesive.

OMG!!! I absolutely love this runner. It glides so easily on the paper and it does not tack up and get stringy at all. I did however try the diamond pattern 60 FT adhesive cart. for it and didn't like it as much as the regular 40 ft that comes with it. Try it, you will love it and never want to go back to another one again.

Love this product...its light weight....managable....and the glue cartridge lasts wwwaaayyy longer than usual glue runners. Im still using the cartridge that came in the gun and it has 40' of tape on it......the new cartridge has 60' on it......I don't think Ill have to worry about running out of adhesive for a long time.
Love this thing sooo much. Makes it super easy to adhere almost everything I have. I even used it to stick together my Tim holtz Clock faces and put it on to the paper at an angle(not the whole timepiece touching the paper, they are sort of laying on each other) and it is holding securely.
This is the best and easiest adhesive applicator i've ever bought. I wish I would have known about this about five years ago. I won't have wasted money on other applicators. Thanks so much for you wonderful applicator. Beverly Roth
I never used a big boy like this for adhesive before, normally just a little runner. But I got this in my goodie bag at a class I took and just fell in love with it. Can't wait to really get going with this thing!

This has been the best thing I've used for adhesive. It is easy to wield. I get a good bit of use out of each refill and the refills are super easy to install. Oh, and the adhesive REALLY sticks well!!

I have purchased many adhesive applicators and none of them have performed as well as this one. I like the fact that it is refillable and the size is comfortable in my hand.
I too thought that this would be too big for most of my projects. I bought one on sale while I was visiting in Oklahoma and bought 1 refill right away too! It is so easy to use and easy to hold and handle that you have a tendancy to just roll it on. But the price is not cheap. So if you want to use a little you can and if you want to use a lot you can too. I believe I need to be a little bit more conservative in how I use it, then it will be more economical than buying all the smaller runners. Heck those are cheap either. I decided to try one of these when I went through 2 smaller runners in one day. I'm hoping this will last me a lot longer and be a better value for my money. It is not repositionable, once it touches down, there is very little chance of moving it, so get it right the first time. It does hold well. I'm learning to love it.

I purchased the Glue Glider Pro with the Perma-Tac adhesive. It does stick well on most scrapping surfaces, but for difficult to stick items such as flowers and photos to bumpy or glittery paper, Provo Craft Terrifically Tacky Tape does the job better. The advantage of the Glue Glider Pro is that there is no peeling the backing off of tape. It moves the scrapping process along quickly. I do find it a little difficult at times to properly position the tape, but over time, with more practice, it has gotten easier! Since the rolling part is larger than the width of the tape, it sometimes glides in the wrong direction. However, this is still a very convenient tool.

I just used this product for the first time at a 16 hour crop where I completed 21 pages most containing double matted multi photo lay-out. I used one entire cartridge of tape that was included with this model. I did not care for the tape that came with this as it pulled excessively but that was the tape not the ggp. When I started a new cartridge of High Tack tape it went on smoothely (but it wastes a lot of glue because it doesn't always leave a complete line of tape). If you are used to using the small tape runners this won't take very long to get adjusted to. It is not really huge like some of the glue gliders on the market. It is also lightweight.
I had been on the hunt for an adhesive applicator for a minute. I have seen a few adhesive applicators but the small size of this one caught my eye. I purchased it at AC Moore with a 50% coupon and so glad I did. The price for the replacement has gone up a couple of dollars since I first got it but I still find it cost effective.

I've heard so much gals rave about this product and how it saves them time when they do their crafts!!! I used this adhesive mini gun and it's easy tot use and glides like a charm. It's very tacky and it holds very on my projects!!!! I would definitely recommend it if you scrapbook and do cards!!!!

While I love the size and feel of this.. I am disappointed that I do not like how all the different glue refills work in it. I tried every single one and the only one I like is the perma tac one ( the one that comes in it when you buy it). The rest do not go on smoothly at all. I thought I bought a bad refill but when I tried the next kind it did the same... so I went back to the perma tac and it worked like a pro. I hope they figure out how to get the others to be as smooth.

I was happy with the way this adhesive held fast. I bought three refills of the perma tac and one refill tape broke while it was still almost full. That is so disappointing as I think the refills are rather expensive. By the way, if you get the refill that doesn't come with the gun you will not like it as it skips and is difficult to use. I'm thinking of returning the broken tape refill to the manufacturer with a complaint. Who needs to waste money these days?

After reading lots of reviews on this product I decided to purchase it. The glue holds really well and you can use it as a glider or you can put just a little adhesive where you want with the manual advance. However, I would not call it a glue "glider". Mine is extremely hard to lay down a continuous line of glue. It's like it's bound up inside or something. I may just have a bad glue cartridge but I have to rate what I have.
I bought this because it was cheaper than the ATG gun and I don't really know which one is better because I have only used this one. The adhesive starts to lift once it dries on the paper. It works well to glue things flat like a paper to another paper but not so good when you try to hold something together with it.
I work at my LSS and looked at this new product for a while and was a little hesitant because of the price - but I took the plunge and bought it just before our retreat, and I am so glad I did. This adhesive is amazing - I have always been the "less is more" with my adhesive and I have found that some of the cheaper adhesive fails to stick. This product went far beyond my expectations - you can get away with less. The perma tac that comes with the gun works great. I think the refills are a bit $$ but it is worth the price if your LO's stay together.
This glue dispenser is the most amazing dispenser I have ever used. You can get adhesive tabs or continuous adhesive. It comes in either hi tack or re-positionable. It has an ergonomic handle that is extremely comfortable and easy to use. Also to remove and replace a cartridge can probably be done by a 4 year old. It is so easy, and there are never any mishaps. I have tried so many tape dispensers and wasted so much money, but never again. I am hooked and if you try it you will be too.
I actually purchased this gun at Quick Quotes retreat (when I ran out of dry adhesive.....oh no!)and it ROCKS!!! - It is so awesome!!!! I found out scrapbook.com sold it and the refills, and am in HEAVEN! It is easy to use, easy to change out cartridges, and the only dry glue runner/tape runner that hasn't broken the tape/glue runner part on me yet! It's a must have for any crafter needed a dry adhesive to make cards, layer papers on scrap pages, etc. You'll be glad you tried it!
I am so happy I chose this instead of the gun that cost a little more. This is exactly what I need. It is large enough no to run out of adhesive right away, but small enough to fit in a small craft drawer. It is inexpensive and the refills are as well. The adhesive is strong and holds wonerfully. I am very pleased!
Easy to hold and has cut my time in half as far as adhering goes. I just started using it on my last project, so if I can go a few more projects without any issues then I'm sold. No skipping yet and no problems getting the adhesive stuck to the paper and moving in the beginning like some smaller counterparts.
My friend recommended this to me and now it is my new favorite adhesive. I still use other adhesives for different projects but this is my everyday adhesive. The gun is not too big to use and the refill cartridge is easy to install, just slide it in. Highly recommend.
I do like this product, but only with the perma tac adhesive. I have tried the other and I do not like them as well. I do love the size and how easy it is to roll on my adhesive. I would not recommend the other kinds of refills. Only the perma tac.
I have tried numerous tape adhesives and this one is the best by far. It goes on smoothly and on the first try. The glue sticks nicely and it does not ball up when applying. I think I have found the adhesive I am going to stick with.
I first tried this out because my bff got one in a SS swap. I was so green with envy that I bought one on my way home. The refills are a bit pricey, but I keep buying them anyway. I don't know how I survived without this tool!
This glue glider is the BEST. It's light weight and very easy to handle. Also, the refills just snaps right in place. I love this tool. Thanks to my friends JoJorenee and Phillyscrap for recommending this product to me.
Bought this cute little adhesive gun for its sticker price. However, I'm little concerned with the price to refill it. I went to a crop recently and felt that I went through a lot of adhesive in a short amount of time.
However it does work really well and it holds great!
