Default Mono not staying

I have been having problems with the mono adhesive not staying stuck. I have gotten them at different times from different places, so I assume that it was not a bad lot. Anyone have any other suggestions or adhesives that they love I should try?

Ooooh, I love my Tombo Mono Multi Glue. It is a white glue (liquid) that doesn't buckle the cardstock! It just takes a bit, is repositionable for a minute or so, then sticks like the dickens! I found some at a regional craft store (Craft Warehouse), but I know they have it at Joanns. The cheapest place to order it in bulk is http://www.penwa.com

I saw Zip Dry Paper Glue at CHA and was rather impressed; I have some on order so I can play with it myself and see if I still am impressed . . . but, dunno when it'll get here . . .

I have always screamed the value of 3M's Double Sided Tape. It is cheap, AF/LF, Photo Safe, and easy to use. Walmart carries it for $2.46 or LESS!!! You get 450 inches for this inexpensive price!

Oh, yes, it's good sticky stuff. I just *hate* the dispenser, tho. Guess I've just gotten spoiled by the Mono dispenser . . .

I've always used Mono or 3M Double-sided tape, but I am now in LOVE with my new ATG gun by 3M. Love love love it! That stuff sticks like crazy and the adhesive refill is cheaper than mono. The gun is pretty large but it's lightweight and super easy to use! Did I mention that I love it?

This stuff is the BEST and boy when it's stuck it's stuck!!!! Great for textures and scrapbooking too!! Cheap, I bought 10 bottles and they ended up being $1.90/each. And.........they last quite a lot longer than mono adhesive.

I've been impressed with Scotch Quick Dry tacky adhesive that I've found at Target's and Michaels. I love the needlenosed top which makes it very easy to use for even the smallest of pieces of paper. I hate to put so much time into a card and then it falls apart. I have been happy with the results of this product.It makes alot more cards than any rolls of adhesives I've dealt with.

I switched from the mono to this glue as well and I'm never looking back. It stays stuck! LOL, but you have to put down your CS right the first time, otherwise you'll be inventing a new sketch! It won't move after you put it down.

I gave up on mono (runner). I like Creative Memories tape runner (and the mini for ribbon) and this one http://joann.com/catalog.jhtml?CATID...&PRODID=153337.

Another vote for the Mono Multi from penwa.com.....The scotch is pretty much the same, but I found it took a bit longer to dry and the larger bottle wasn't a good a fit for my hand, but I have small hands.

My vote is for the Mono Multi or the Scotch Tacky. I bought some mono multi in bulk so it wasnt a bad price but will probably get the scotch from mike's when I am out.
