These were the first thickers I ever tried and boy, am I addicted now! Great letters that pop off the page just enough, with terrific texture. Love the font, love the extra characters, only problem I've had is the smaller pieces seem to migrate off of the backing and end up everywhere - best stored in a hanging system or still in the packaging rather than in my drawer full of letter sheets.
I don't have these exact thickers, but I have the black glitter thickers in this sprinkles type. I really like the look of the black glitter letters and the glitter stays put pretty well. I like the way they look with the white glitter sprinkles thickers -- I recently used them together in a black, white, and blue page.

I just love the texture and effect of another layer that the thickers give to your lo's. I have tried the chipboard and felt thickers and I am going to have to get me some more. I used the last of them on the cover of my album and they have even stayed great on there.
I love Thickers. I use them on almost everything! Unfortunately, I've had problems with every single package of the vinyl variety. The foam, chipboard and felt don't have this problem, but the adhesive on the vinyl seems to be defective. It seems like it has melted or been left in a warm place too long. It doesn't really stay on the back of the letter, and it's goopy. Like I said...I have several packages of vinyl Thickers (all bought from different places at different times), and they all have the same problem. That doesn't stop me from using them, though. I just apply a little glue such as The Ultimate! glue, and it works great!

I love any and all Thickers, however the adhesive on these Thickers was gooey-er than others I've worked with. Perhaps it's just the material (vinyl) but when I've worked with Chipboard and felt Thickers I've been able to remove the Thicker and move it somewhere on my project without any problems. However with these, the Thickers left a residue when I moved them and some discoloration. Also, they didn't stay in place as well as other Thickers. I still love the font and the look, just be sure you know EXACTLY where you want them before you stick 'em!

I have not had any trouble with the vinyl stickers staying in place however it is true that once you place them, it is not good to try and move them because they do leave alot of residue behind. I particularly like the vinyl ones because they offer alot of dimension without the bulk of the chipboard. The foam ones do that as well but they do not look as nice and glossy as the vinyl, without being overly glossy like the puffy ones.
