Hello! I have been getting a crazy number of emails asking about adhesives! Turns out my favorite everyday adhesive is being discontinued and folks were curious what I would be switching to. So… I decided to do a video!
When I found out the Tombow Stamp Runner was being discontinued, I (first cried and then) tried *many* other options. For months! One stood out (and was one I loved years ago). But before I shared it with you, I wanted to take several weeks to test it. And, thankfully, the verdict is that it is a great adhesive!
I now am using the Kokuyo Dot Liner Adhesives. There is the regular (and smaller) Kokuyo Dot Liner Adhesive, and the larger Kokuyo Long Dot Liner Adhesive. They both work the same way and allow you to rub the adhesive away if you change your mind. I have decided to mainly use the bigger Long Dot Liner since I won’t have to change the refills as often.
Speaking of refills… they are very easy to change! Whew. The cost of the refills isn’t bad. The Long Dot Liner Refill has 36m of adhesive for $8.99… so about $.25/meter. The Dot Liner Refill has 16m of adhesive for $4.99… so about $.31/meter. I find these prices to be very reasonable for a quality adhesive.
But keep in mind: everyone’s needs and wants in an adhesive are different. There are also other adhesives that are good for other purposes. Be sure to watch my 2016 My Favorite Crafty Things Adhesive video HERE for some of the other great adhesives out there.
I hope this was helpful! Oh and I do know of one more adhesive coming out soon that I am liking too. Will share it when I can!
