The ATG Gun- Adhesive Glue Gun for Cards and Scrapbooks

3M Scotch 714 1/4\

Without question one of the HOTTEST tools on the scrapbook market is the Scotch ATG gunScotch ATG gun

The most popular size is the 714 model. This is 1/4 inch ( compare to Tombo Mono). The cost is about 60.00 and refills are about 3.00 for 36 yards. The refill most people buy is the 1/4 inch Gold tape because it is acid free and lignin free.

The ATG gun is ENORMOUS! I am not joking- you will be shocked. You sure will never lose it :-)
It is normally used for picture framing. You can always pop by a framing shop and ask to see theirs.

Anyone I know that has one SWEARS by it and puts in o their must have list. I must admit I have been on a quest for the perfect adhesive for a long, long time and I am sorely tempted. I put my tape runner way at the top in terms of importance.
This is on my Christmas list.

    Just so you know… I made 230 wedding invitations this fall. I would NEVER have finished them without this gun and the gold tape. Not only is the tape acid and lignin free, it has a super hold…better than any adhesive I have ever used.
    I only paid $39.00 for my “gun.” I’m sure prices have gone up but it is well worth any price. It is the BEST adhesive system I’ve ever bought.

    I have heard the best place to get these is from a framing supplies place. I know isn’t bad and I know another place called MMdistributers (google framing ATG). They have the best price so I think the shipping may decide it. I got a silhouette for Christmas so I can’t ask for this too (well I could but I shouldn’t). I have a birthday in May and this will be on my list unless I get some money this christmas.
