Exclamation ATG Refills - HELP

OK ladies, I'm sure I've seen this someplace, but I know you can help me. I bought an ATG from my LSS plus a refill. Both gave me problems. I took it back to the store and the owner told me it was OK. IMO, it wasn't. It was tight (even tho' I loosened the tension) and it wouldn't turn (no matter how much I tried) and would constantly stick. Personally, I think it was the wrong size (or old). I took it back to her and she gave me a free roll of tape. Did the same thing. I then found a refill at a garage sale - marked "FREE". Took it and VIOLA! It works like a charm. Now for my problem.......

I never looked to see what brand it was and I will NOT go back to the LSS to purchase another refill. Where do you ladies get your refills from? My ATG is NOT a 3M. It says "BOMA" on the back.

Thanks a bunch for your help.

I only get my refills from framingsupplies.com. Then again, I have a real ATG, too, and they are real refills. I use the 914 Gold, because I do scrapbooking with it and this one is acid free.

HTH!

I also buy only from framingsupplies.com. They're reliable and the price is right! For my cardmaking I purchase the 924 ATG adhesive transfer tape.

I can't say I've ever heard of the dispenser you're describing. Any way you could post a picture of it and/or the roll of tape that isn't working for you?

If push comes to shove, you don't actually need the dispenser to use the tape. I used the refills for years before investing in the dispenser....

I get my ATG stuff from www.cropandstick.com and they have awesome customer service. Perhaps an email to the ladies there might help.

Have you tried doing a web search for ATGs to see if you can find one that looks like yours? I did a web search with boma atg and didn't come up with a whole lot.

Since you were having problems with the dispenser originally, did you happen to save the box in case you wanted to complain to the manufacturer? I hang onto the original packaging of a product until I am satisfied so that I have all the info for a complaint if need be. If you had manufacturer info, you might be able to do a web search and find out about refills for your particular ATG.

There is a thread here, "Wish me luck...." The lady was going to try another brand of double-sided tape in her 3M ATG. Check it out, she said that there was a dispenser also offered on the site where she bought the tape.

Good luck--
