Default I Did a Cost Comparison of Adhesives

I compared the cost of using 4 different tape runners -- the Pink ATG, Glue Glider Pro, Tombo Mono, and the Tape Jungle ATG (similar to Pink ATG, but an off-brand.)

I put the results, with some graphs, on my blog.

Scrapbooking Adhesives – Cost Comparison

One of them turned out to be really expensive.

Fun! Well, since I found my yellow ATG at a thrift store for $3.00 and bought 6 rolls of each 1/4" and 1/2" wide tape (both fit in the ATG) off ebay. I don't think my cost savings factors into the retail pricing of your charts. I still haven't used the rolls up yet. I do like that the Tombow tape isn't too expensive for how little I use in feet of tape. If I'm doing a big project I'll pull out the big gun.

Thanks for the analysis and sharing. I'm glad I have a Pink ATG. My most useful tool ever.

Thanks! I've often wondered, I'm surprised at the highest.

Wow I think next time I have a coupon I will get the ATG and let my Glider Pro just waste away
