Lightbulb Tape Gun

Hi,
Has anyone ever tried/bought this tape gun? I think the price is incredible, and I ordered one yesterday. I ended up ordering the red one with 1/4". I just wanted to see if anyone else has used it. Here is the link:

Thanks in advance!

Have not seen this before. I don't think I need such a "heavy duty" tape gun. I'll stick with the little ones from Wal-Mart.... Adhesive-Tech.

That's a good price!

I haven't tried the ATG, but I've read several paper artists' recommendations of it. The prices I've seen elsewhere were considerably higher.

I have this gun and I love it I have had mine about seven years. You will love the archival quality awsome transfer tape you use with it. It is a nice inexpensive answer to all adhesive problems. I also use this to make accordian albums where the instructions call for sticky strip, this is a very good adhesive. I think you will love it.

Yeah! I am glad to hear it! I really, really hope I like it! My friend got the yellow one and the adhesive seemed to be much more sticky than the mono. So, I can't wait to get it!!!!! Thanks for the advice!

I ordered one from the same place and it is supposed to be here today. I have read a lot of good reviews on it and can't wait to try it out. I have swaps cut out ready to assemble once Fed Ex delivers. Just waiting and hoping the it gets delivered before my husband gets home. It is getting uncomfortably close on time right now. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I have that tape gun (bought from the same place) and I love it. I got the 1/4" width one. It works great, but it's easy to go through a lot of tape because it's so easy to use. Much better than working with mono if you do a lot of cards. I get multiple refills from my husband for Christmas, so I'm set for a good long while. Just be sure to save the tape loading instructions--until you've done it a few times it can be confusing.

Okay, slight problem with my tape gun. It is now 9:40 pm and still no Fed Ex. When I track it on the web site it shows that it left Charlotte, NC at 9:17 am on the 15th and was scheduled to be delivered to me on the 16th. It still has not arrived in KY according to tracking. Has anyone in NC, TN or KY noticed a Fed Ex truck looking lost? If so, please PM me and give them directions to 1-75 North. They can find me from there.

Thanks

My tape gun is here. Yea!!!!! Came just a few minutes ago. I have the tape in it and I plan to check it out this afternoon. It is BIG but surprisingly light in weight; the entire package including the gun, the box the gun comes in, 10 rolls of tape and tons of bubble wrap only weighed 2 lbs. That is not bad. I will report back once I use it.

I don't have that version, but a different one. It's suprisingling light for it's size. It's a good adhesive, so you don't need a lot - it's easy to go overboard The rolls last awhile and are inexpensive. The one I have is
1/2" so I still have to use mono for smaller pieces. DH works for xpedex Paper and Graphics and they stock the 1/2" guns and refills so that's why I use the larger size.

Have it and love it. It is really light and once you get the hang of using it it is so easy. I got mine from the same place.

I went to a stamping get together and we made 25 cards. I used mine and had already used it to make 7 cards and still had lots of tape left when I got home.

Default Tape Gun

Thanks everyone! I am so excited to get mine! The price is just awesome, and the stickiness too! I can't wait! All of you guys have gotten me so excited!!!! Why isn't everyone using this?!?!?!?!?!?!?! I ordered 5 rolls, so hopefully that lasts me a while. In Feb. I ordered 65 monos, and I almost out, so I go through it like crazy. Hopefully with getting so much more in this one, I won't have to place as many orders! Thanks everyone!
