Tape adhesives review

I have been accumulating tape runners for a while, trying to find the best one for me.

Now that I have used the three major “actors” in the adhesive arena, I wanted to make a short review for your benefit.

In this review I will go through the ease of use and the environmental footprint of each tape runner. You will also be able to appreciate the difference in size of each tape runner. In general all three are very good adhesives, but the above points varies amongst them.

I have paid for all the adhesives myself and was not asked to make this review by any company, this is my honest opinion based on my own experience.

  1. Tombow Tape Runners
  2. Pros: Easy to use, adheres well, smooth application.
    Cons: Shorter refill (39 feet), not environmentally friendly due to many disposed plastic parts.
    Get it:

  3. Glue Glider Pro by Glue Arts
  4. Pros: Adheres well, smooth application and a larger refill (60 feet).
    Cons: Not environmentally friendly due to many disposed plastic parts.

  5. Scotch Advanced Tape Glider (ATG)
  6. Pros: Easy to use, adheres well, smooth application and the largest refill (36 yards or 108 feet – comes in a package of two which totals in 72 yards or 216 feet) and most environmentally friendly because it has the smallest plastic waste.
    Cons: More difficult to replace refills (though it takes a minute instead of a second) and it is more expensive to get the dispenser, though the refills are cheaper in the long run.
