Default Does everyone still hot glue ribbon to clips?

I am sick to death of gluing clips. Does everyone still use hot glue to adhere the ribbon to them? I've been reading up on double sided tape...what are your opinions?

I am a die-hard hot-hot glue fan (I like my glue super-hot!)

I purchase the double sided tape ones as I think they look a little smoother, but if I ever run out and have to make them (PLEASE NOOOOOOOO!!! then I glue them as I can't seem to make the tape cooperate for me. I will say that for the taped ones I sometimes pull up the end and hot glue it to make sure it will stay but don't think this step entirely necessary.

What do you mean, double sided tape ones? Like just double sided tape?

I always hot glue mine. I have read that the taped ones don't hold as well but I have never tried it.

I have been using tape since 2009 and have not had a problem. I do glue the very end just in case it might lift. I CAN"T go back to glue.

do you mind telling what kind of tape you use? i just went to a tape site and got a quote but i have to spend $55...the roll i wanted was $8.50...i would like to try something before committing to spending that much!

Interested in hearing more on tape too if you gals that use it don't mind sharing. I hot glue normally and used some that was adhesive backed and glued my ends and those were nice if I was slightly off because I could fix it. Without potentially bending the clip or burning myself lol so it was kinda nice!

I am completely sick of gluing, so I just ordered some double stick tape from Punch Place Plus. It hasn't gotten here yet so I can't give the product a review. However, I am not entirely happy with the company's customer service and timeliness. I ordered last Monday and their policy states up to five days to ship. I emailed them on Sunday asking if it had shipped yet and then got a simple tracking notice yesterday, with no actual personal response. Perhaps because of my background in customer service I am a little annoyed by it, but I guess I just feel like it's not that hard to send a quick email to a worried customer saying "It's on its way, here is your tracking number and thanks again for your order."
