CHA- Adhesives: Scotch ATG

For those of you who have waiting to take the ATG plunge, wait no more!

3M Corp is offering its support to breast cancer research through donations to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation from the sale of its new pink ATG gun. For each gun sold, the company will donate $1.20 to the foundation, with a minimum donation of $25,000.

Hey, guess what we found out… the industrial/framer version of the ATG stood for “Adhesive Transfer Gun” and when they were brainstorming name ideas for the new, pink, crafters’ version, they totally accidentally came up with a name that also had the initials ATG: Advanced Tape Glider. I’m not sure I believe it was accidental, but it makes for good party trivia. If you’re partying with crafters, anyway.

Here’s Sarah Moore getting a lesson on how to load the new, pink ATG: Advanced Tape Glider:

The pink ATG will be available at Michaels and Joann stores. MSRP $39.00; as for the tape itself, 2 rolls of the general purpose adhesive has MSRP of between $6 and $7 dollars, 2 rolls of the acid-free variety will retail for between $9 and $10. Each roll contains 36 yards of super strong adhesive. Yep, it’s the good stuff.

How excited are you about the new, pink ATG: Adhesive Tape Glider? Yeah, us too!

CHA Paperlines & More: 3M Post-It Craft Paper

One of the most sensible and interesting innovations of the new year is the new Post-It Craft Paper by 3M. It’s something so simple we honestly were surprised it didn’t already exist!

Great cardstock colors available, designed specifically for parties and the holidays:

Some of the CraftyCon team sat down for the Make n’ Take at the 3M/Post It booth. What a fun and easy to use product!

Perfect for people who have trouble centering a layer on the first try. Here is first time Card Maker and official Craft Happening “Man in Suit”, Jeff Eells making crafting look easy! Like standard Post-It’s, the adhesive is re-positionable.

It also has a white core… so sanding removes the top color layer to reveal a white base below!

We like the 81/2″ x 12″ size. Perfect for printers, die-cutters, embossing, cardmaking and scrapbooking alike.

And look… Cricut and Post It are pals! They even have the settings for the Cricut on the paper! We wish all paper did this. Using these settings allows you to cut just through the paper, not the backing of the adhesive backed paper; making crafting with kids or making multiple cards a breeze.

So what do you think; is Post-It Craft Paper a thumbs up?
