Default Need help, is Tape Depot still the cheepest for ATG refills?

I need to purchase a large number of refills and am looking for the best deal. I have only purchased from Tape Depot before. I like their product but am open to try a new company, if you've been happy with the product,price and service.

Thanks in advance for the help.

They were when I ordered refills a couple of months ago. If someone has found anyplace that can beat them for price and quality I haven't heard about it.

I have found my tape cheaper at: http://www.findtape.com/product235/S...-ATG-Tape.aspx

I usually order less than a case and it is still cheaper than I have found at other sites.

Thanks Marla, are you happy with your purchase? I have the Tape Depot tape gun. Will this tape work with it?

Has anyone else tried this tape?

Any more ideas?

You can check their site to make sure there is no compatibility issues with your model gun. My gun is about 10 years old so I don't know about the new ones. I have ordered multiple times with FindTape and never had a problem.

If you are looking for 1/4" wide tape, Armel is the cheapest place I have found and great customer service.

That's a great price per roll - but shipping to Canada is $19.88 for 12 rolls

TapeDepot had a better deal for shipping - but the price per roll was higher.

Guess I'm going to be doing some Math today trying to figure out which is the best deal including shipping. Thanks for the links!

I am in BC, Canada, and I just bought my ATG Gun and LOVE IT! I pay $5.50 canadian for mine from:

http://nhsmediastore.com/index.asp?P...rch=atg&Page=1

I haven't searched out other sites in Canada to date, but even at this price, its way better than the mono stuff and paying 1/3 cost for it at $5.50!

I too order from framing supplies. I buy the 924 1/4 x 36yd for 2.40 and I usually put together an order with a few people to share shipping. I think last time I order 49 rolls and shipping came out to 11 something. Can't beat the price and custoemr service!

I may try that 1.25 a roll also. I have been buying the scotch, but for this price I will try it! I am just waiting to see if my friends want in. The last time my order was so large, the company delivered to my house. We are in the same state and I am close to one of their other stops! Hooray for me!

Default Did the math

Including shipping it's still cheaper to order from Armel - huh!

But it looks like you ladies beat me to it - because they only have 3 rolls left and it's not cost efficient to order 3 rolls.

Should have done the math sooner

Send them an email or give them a call. They usually have more in stock. (I needed 72 rolls and it only showed 7, but when I sent an email, they confirmed they had more)

Thanks for the info!

After reading several threads, ordered an ATG gun and it arrived Monday with a free roll of tape. Used the whole roll in one afternoon - couldn't believe I went through 36 yards - thought for sure it was a small sample roll - so I measured it.

Yup, I used 36 yards of tape in an afternoon - so you can see why it's important to find the cheapest price.

Just an update to thank you again for the suggestion of Armel. I received my order in the time frame promised and have been pleased with the tape.

To me it looks like the same tape as I got from Tape Depot.

Grateful to have saved some money, I appreciate all the SCS help.

The only problem with this tape is that is labelled at ph neutral but not acid free. I use the scotch gold because I scrapbook as well. I also want to put my cards in the scrapbook and not have them discolor from the other tape. Maybe that is just my weird thinking.

Actually, I could be wrong, but I think "pH neutral" and "acid free" mean virtually the same thing (pH neutral = 7 and acid free = 7 or right around 7). I found this on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acid-free_paper. Hope this helps! Maybe you can save a little money!

Well, wouldn't you know it?! I found it after I posted. It's on the main page, but not listed any where in the online store.

I know this is an old thread - but I'm needing my ATG refills (I used SCAPA tape before from findtape.com) - BUT the shipping to Canada (for 2 guns for friends and a case of tape) is OVER $100. Yikes! Any help out there? Thanks!

The The Tape Depot is the least expensive place to order for Canadians. If your order is over $50, the shipping is free. Of course, the items may be a little more expensive than a couple of the other places that are cheaper, but as you found out, the shipping they charge pushes the net cost way up. I think FindTape is about $1.50 per roll of 1/4" ATG tape. The Tape Depot is $1.95. But when I put the same amount of tape I order from the Tape Depot into my shopping cart at FindTape (36 rolls), they wanted over $35 for shipping, but it with that many rolls, its free shipping from the Tape Depot. So the cost is lower from The Tape Depot.

For some unknown reason, the Armel Co. link does not work for me. I just get an error message. I think is the company where I originally bought my ATG. Just after I bought my ATG, they stopped selling to individuals. It sounds like they have the best price so I would like to check them out for my craft group.

The Tape Depot is my go-to source for ATG refills. And if you're wanting a CASE of tape, the cost per roll is $1.17. (That's 144 rolls for $168.00). This tape fits the 3M red ATG or the pink one they've put out. There is a difference between these two: the red ATG is for industrial use and the ATG stands for Adhesive Transfer Gun; the pink was introduced for crafters and the ATG stands for Advance Tape Glider.

I have two of the red ATG's (yes, I use both of them) and wouldn't waste my time or money on one of the pink versions.

Hope this info helps!

I have both the red and pink guns and they are identical as far as I can tell (except for color).

I have the yellow one too...lol

This is the one I order for my pink ATG. Its also acid free, which is good, since I scrapbook as well and didn't want to have to switch out the tape or have two dispensers.
