I'm always making cards or invites or some paper crafting activity, and typically just use some roller tape from my local craft store. I can say that I am not too sure how well those adhesives hold together after the cards or invites are sent out, but its all I have ever known to use. Until I was offered Tombow for Review, a permanant adhesive tape runner, its refillable, acid-free, non toxic and forms a strong instant bond with whatever paper it is being used on.
I decided I needed to play around with some Thank You notes for the Boys Groovy Splash Party this Summer, So I cut out some Peace signs and grabbed my Adhesive Tape runner and set to work! I thought the Tape Runner was lightweight, some of them get a bit bulky, I liked that the glue had a flap to keep debry from getting all over your glue, I hate when that happens.
The Tape runner's adhesive is a lot stronger than ALL of the other tape runner's I've used, so there is no repositioning with this one. But It will hold through mailing and a wind storm, Ok I'm not exactly sure about that one, BUT it is Strong! I can mail off those Thank You's knowing they will get there in one piece! The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the awkwardness of holding it, I had to roll the tape once it ran out. I wasn't in a hurry with these invites, so it wasn't a big deal, but when I am rushing to make something I have a feeling I'd be more likely to reach for my other tape rollers, although they won't hold as well!
Other than that slight negativity, I really liked the Tombow Tape roller and will be using it on projects to come!
