Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My Daughter who is in High School, on average has a collage or presentation board due every couple of weeks. So needless to say we go through tape and glue sticks very quickly. Now while those both work well, they do take a bit more time to apply and can sometimes be messy. This was my reason for wanting to try out the new Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller.
After trying it out some comments were "Way easier than tape or glue", "Putting together a project was a lot quicker than usual", "I was afraid I was going to use it all, but it didn't run out" and "Can we get some more?". So obviously this was a 5 star product.
Now on to my use, I gave it a try in putting birthday invites together where I was going to be adding on a photo and small decorations, like the ones used for scrapbooking. First off in using the applicator, I liked that I was already familiar with it because I have been a longtime user of Tombow Classic Mono Correction Tape at work. This was no different as the adhesive dots were very easy to apply in both starting and stopping the tape and it's very comfortable to hold. In regards to their stickiness, I couldn't find any issues there. My photos stayed put and even the littlest decor was firmly attached.
For me this product was probably a 3 1/2 star compared to my daughters 5 star and this is my reason. While the Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller is definitely time saving, less mess, and easy to use; it's also a tad expensive for the amount of tape in each roller. For almost half the price I can get 83 Feet of Scotch Magic Photo Safe Tape and while it may not be as convenient, it will save me some money. So in the end I averaged up to a 4 star based on both of our uses with it. I will keep an eye on the pricing and if I happen to see it on sale, I'll probably pick some up.
