That stinks about the customer service, but when it gets to you and you have tried it out let us know what you think! (I am writing this after just burning my finger again on that hot glue!)

Guess I'm the weird one here! I actually use E6000. I squirt a little out on a piece of waxpaper and then use a tooth pick to smooth out some glue on the ribbon (I leave the very edges free of glue, since I like to sew the clip to the bow). I can get it pretty smooth this way, and since it doesn't dry quite as quickly as hot glue, I can take time to make sure the ribbon is line up just right.

I have ordered from there before and have never had that problem. I love their tape too.

I hot glue. I ordered pre-lined clips from someone and they were taped. The edges were peeling off and after a few uses the ribbon started separating from the clip. I wasn't impressed. I hate lining my own clips so I order hot glued pre-lined clips.

We make lots and lots. There is no way we could do it if we used tape. It would take forever. We have had one or two issues with the glue not staying, but we traced it back to a bad batch of glue that we never used again. Overall, we have many repeat customers. As mentioned elsewhere on this thread, the trick is super hot glue! Or skipping the process altogether and getting them pre-lined from us! Lol

I only use hot glue. I've tried DST with no luck.

I do a combination of both the 2 sided tape and hot glue. I like the smoothness of the 2 sided tape but like the added security in certain spots with hot glue.
