Default bonding question

I was just looking at the yella ribbon tutorial and I see that they use Fabric tac to bond their bows. so my question is has any one used this method and if so how does it compare to heat and bond? please let me know.

I have never used it but I have seen bows made with it and the glue does show through the back of the bow expecially on the lighter colors like white, pink, light blue, etc. While I love their bow designs and I respect Nancy for building up such a great company, I think things got very busy and this was a time saving factor.....It is considerably faster than spending the time to iron on the wornder under then cut the press.....etc....
But I am a perfectionist and have not tried it because I really do not like the glue showing through the back, however, I do not recall anyone complaining. So I don't think it will cause any harm to you business if you decided to give it a shot. Who knows, maybe some day I will be too busy to keep up with all the ironing. Also, with so many people making bows now, the prices are dropping. I see many fabric covered bows selling for $10 or less.....and while this covers cost, it does not cover the time it takes to put everything together. So now you also have to think about your P&L and make that personal decision.

Ok that makes sense .so to continue on that which is better wonder under or heat and bond .I've only used heat and bond ABC my bows seem to have grind up well but couldn't mind trying something new.

I have a question. OK so I'm still working with grosgrain right now. What is the best to use. I was using the hot glue for the past 2 years but...I would love a more professional/clean look. Not sure if heat n bond or wonder under works with ribbon .

Well I have used heat and bond and it works great on gross grain ribbon. I'm not sure how you have been able to use the hot glue and not get the hard lines showing through. But with heat and bond it will give you a smooth bond and finish to your bow. But best advice would be is to try it and see how you like it but I know it works great. I have read some reviews that you should use the lite. Personally I'm still new to this but I have used the ultra hold if I'm only doing one layer but when I tried to use it with two layers it got very stiff so I am going to have to see about the lite. Anywho once again just get a small pack and try it. Good luck

Okay, maybe I missed something.....are you saying that for your fabric bows, you have been lining them with ribbon other than grosgrain? I have only ever used grosgrain to line my fabric bows....and I have only used wonderunder. Hot glue does show through and does not look professional; however, that is not to say that people don't buy them. Now if you are looking to change that, definitely wornder under or H&B. Good luck!
