Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

A few months ago someone asked Gina what kind of tape runner she used in order to be certain that her cards won't fall apart in a few months.  If I recall correctly, Gina said that Dot 'n' Roller was her tape runner of choice.  But Dot 'n' Roller has since been discontinued (unless someone can find a source for me that I haven't found during my own search).  Does anyone have any suggestions about currently manufactured adhesives that are still reliable for the life of a card.  I used Duck Brand Adhesive Roller for awhile, but that's recently been "improved" and now it's not nearly as easy to use.  Please someone, HELP!

I like to use Tombow's Mono Multi glue, Gina sells it in her store:  http://www.shop.ginakdesigns.com/product.sc?productId=2&categor...

Scor-Tape:  http://www.shop.ginakdesigns.com/product.sc?productId=296&categ...

And I also have an ATG gun.  All 3 work really well!!

HTH!!

I use the same things Lori mentioned and also tend to use Glue Dots as well.  It all depends on what I am wanting to stick and how thick it is.  For the most part though, I use my ATG gun....  Just works for me :o)
My sister turned me on to the ATG and the refills are a fraction of the cost of any other I have tried (glue glider pro, adtech, etc.) 2 refills = 72 yards for the reuglar price of $5.99 at Michael's (use a % off coupon and WOW!)  I don't know if it will last an eternity, but it is from Scotch Brand, they must know something about adhesive.  They also have an acid free/photo safe refill pack for the regular price of $9.99.
I also use the Tombow Multi-purpose glue. It gives me a couple of seconds to position the pieces just right before it sticks (fast!). In South Africa we don't have that many options and I've used the Tombow tape-glue as well but ran out very quickly and it stuck too quick :-). The refills here are also about the same as the actual product so it's not been very economical. (What is 'ATG'?)

Adhesive Tape Gun, by Scotch.  Do a Youtube search.  It is LARGE, has a trigger you hold to dispense the tape, and runs around 40 bucks for the contraption (regular price), but once you get over the initial shock of that price the refills are soooooooo inexpensive!

Ooops I guess it's actually called Advanced Tape Glider.
Thanks everyone for this great info. I am going to purchase one of these ATG's. It's always great to have feedback from people who have used an item!

Debbie, you will love the ATG gun. I received the pink one as a Christmas gift from my daughter and absolutely love it. She got it at Michaels, and used a %coupon. As Donna said in a previous post, the refills are very inexpensive. The size of the gun had me worried, but it really is lightweight.

 

Thanks, everyone, for your input.  I'm taking it all in.  I may try more than one of your suggestions and see what works best for me. 
Thanks Carol! I was a little worried about the size of the gun also. Now that I've read everyone's post I am gonna go tomorrow to purchase one. I have a 50% off coupon.

Well I went to my JoAnn's and they didn't carry them in my store. I then went over to Michaels and they had two of them.... I am now a proud owner of my very own ATG gun! :)
Congratulations Debbie! You will love it.
