Hi everyone. Thought I would say a few things about adhesives. I just started using the message board a few months ago. (Even though I was a member for a year before.) I didn't really understand how it worked. Anyway, when I did start reading the MB, I heard a lot about ATG 714. So I started researching it. No one around me carried it, it had to be ordered online. I really don't like to do that, I like to walk in a store and put my hands on things. I also did not like the price. I have been on the fence for months. Well, Custom Crops offered a pink ATG with 2 rolls of tape for $30.00, preorder. I still did not jump on it. I just kept watching it and reading what others had to say about it. Then My Pink Stamper made a video about the differences of the original and the new pink one. There aren't many. This is what interested me.
1. price, a lot cheaper
2. seems to weigh a little less
3. MPS also said it seemed to work a lot smoother
4. It's a lot prettier
5. Can get the tape really cheap
I have the Glue Glider Pro. It's OK. But the glue is expensive. With the new pink ATG I can order twice as many glue rolls for half as much money as the Glue Glider. I've had the new Atg for about 2 weeks and so far I like it a lot.
I also use Zig 2-way glue for small things, as well as Scotch Quick-Dry adhesive and a small glue runner. Yesterday I picked up the Quik-stik. That should come in handy for really tiny pieces.
I just thought someone might be interested in some adhesives. Hope this helps someone.
God Bless. I'm still working on my grandson's birthday stuff.
