Settle down, sister. I only use a high temp glue gun and glue sticks for everything. Just sharing what I've done, don't mean to step on any toes.

I prefer using hot glue, but I've been using it for so long,that's it's just what's easier and fastest for me.

I do train people that work for me with the tape though because I've found it easier and quicker. I didn't like the Specialty Tapes stuff though. I found it didn't hold well enough and wasn't wide enough (1/4") or too wide (3/8"). I had my own tape made that holds even better and is actually a width in between the two mentioned above. I haven't had any problems with it and I've sold it to a couple of people on here that love it too.

I think it just comes down to what you're comfortable with and what works better for you.

Ummm, I wasnt uptight in the least.....I was just emphasizing.....a lot of ppl say they have used a hot melt glue gun when some dont really melt at a high temp, I have one that is SUPER HOT.......

I didnt have my toes stepped on, it is just funny that all the tapes I have tried come off and some ppl say the same about glue....funny stuff

Now THAT sounds like some tape I'd like to try! The in-between width sounds perfect!
