I make cards as needed all year long and only do mass productions at Christmas. I have been using Tombow and 40-50% off coupons at ACMoore and Michaels to purchase the refills. Should I consider an ATG or am I just as well off using the Tombow (and red liner tape from time to time as needed)?
There are lots of discussions on the subject, but to summarize what I know about it:

1. The ATG gun and tape is less expensive
2. ATG tape holds better.

I have TWO ATG guns - one is the yellow 700 and is used for gold tape (scrapbooking) and the other is the pink ATG from Michael's and I keep it loaded with regular ATG tape and use it for card-making.

Hope that helps.
