Oh how I love my tombow! I had never used one until last week when I went to a class at Archivers and they had us use one for the project.
Previously I always used photo squares. What a mess! Do you know how hard it is to get those little scrap tabs off the carpet? Almost impossible!
With the tombow, you have no icky tabs to contend with.
I've used other tape runners before and been really disappointed with them getting stuck. I bought my tombow today and have been using it A LOT, with no trouble.
The best part of this adhesive? The little cap that flips down so that nothing in your scrap stash gets stuck (and ruined!) to the adhesive!
If you're looking for an adhesive, this is THE one to buy!
Wish I had tried this out sooner. It is comparable in price to my previous "favorite" runner adhesive, but the best part is that it is refillable ad has a very simple attached protector for when you aren't using it.
Now that I know how good it is, I will probably order in quantity next time.
Whenever I see the name Tombow, I know I am going to purchase an item that will not disappoint. I just started using the Tombo Mono Adhesive Dispenser and I am in love. I have used several different kinds but this one glides over the project with ease. I am very pleased with this product!
This has become my favorite scrapbook and card adhesive. It is easy to work with, transfers to the item to be glued easily, and does not adhere so quickly that you can't reposition it if needed. It is permanent after a few minutes which is exactly what I want when I finish a project.
I just got this and am very disappointed. It is hard to get it to grab, so I end up dragging the dispenser over the photo several times and have to use my finger to advance the adhesive a bit. Also, when I try to lift it off, many times it will pull a string of adhesive off the dispenser instead of breaking off evenly.
I have been using 3L tape runners and will definitely go back to them.
