I've been doing collage for 20 years. I've used glues, acrylic mediums, glue stick, staples, brads, you name it and I've tried it. When tape runners came on the market I used them with scrapbooking and was smitten. But it's with my collage that I LOVE this tape. No more wet paper. No more unwanted wrinkles and folds. No more ooze around the edges. And it sticks to almost everything! Nothing heavy or bulky, of course. I've even had it work on most slick papers and foils. I've tried other brands but this one is the best.
I started using this tape runner and its sister the EZ squares several years ago when putting together several scrapbooks for Christmas gifts at the last minute. Yes, they may be a bit more expensive than some adhesives you could use, but when doing a large or last-minute project, you simply can't beat the convenience. And they do hold really well. When I can put together a 50 page 12 x 12 book in less than 4 days, a lot of the credit goes to easy-to-use, dependable products, and this one goes at the top of my list.
I am a long-time scrapbooker and scrapbook teacher and have tried many adhesive products. I always come back to and recommend the E-Z RUNNER permanent tape for all scrapbook projects. Although permanent, you can still lift your mats and photos up to 15 minutes and beyond without damaging your page or the items on it. The runner is smooth and lays down any size path of sticky strips on your project.
