I hope you other guys have better luck with this company.

I am afraid to get any more tape with out trying it first because any tape I've gotten in the past has NOT worked! I got the 'good' stuff too but all my ribbon just keeps peeling off. I've tried all the 'tricks' too - like waiting 24 hours after putting it on to touch it - but nothing worked.

I guess I'll just have to stick to using E6000!

I have a ton of these tapes (1/4") and a bunch of 3/8" ribbons. If you ladies want a sample, I can send you FIVE 4.5 inches of ribbons with the tape on the back. The ribbons should be enough to partially line five alligator clips.

Just send $1 to hilda robles at msn dot com (no spaces) to cover the 44 cent stamp, PP fee, and envelope.

I LOVE this forum! What a great idea using double stick tape. I was getting aggravated lining my clips... even with the fine tip glue gun. Thanks again ladies

It seems they did "figure" it out, because they didn't even offer a sample, and said,"Yes it does work to line hair clips", the minimum order is $55". Okay, but when I requested a quote, I specified that I needed a tape to bond fabric to wood (not to line clippies!)

Very strange. They just assume it's for lining clippies now. I ordered some anyways and it didn't work for what I was using it for.
