Are they the same size or is the pink one smaller?

Silly question, I know, but they look like they're different sizes on-line.

Same size. I think most red ones came from framing supply stores, mine did. I have compared mine to the pink one from Michaels and mine is heavier and "I" think sturdier and of better quality. JMO

Now that I'm here, I have nothing clever to say!

I have both. The red from framing The pink one from Michaels. I have not noticed any difference. I love both
I still use my red one almost all the time, use my pink one for spare when I have a card class. And they both "feel" the same.

They are the same except for the color. I have both and use the red for acid free tape for scrapbooking and general tape in the pink for card making. It is easier and cheaper to have two separate guns, rather than just using the gold tape for everything.

I've owned both for years. My PINK one stick real bad and the lid is hard to open. Its such a distraction that I stopped using it and only use my RED one. I've never had a problem with my RED one. The RED one is about 5 yrs old and the PINK one is 2 yrs old.

The pink and the red are exactly the same size.
So is the yellow one.

Why the difference in price? I've seen the pink ones for $25 and the red for $45.

Thanks for all the I still feel kinda silly for even asking.

The red one was "the original" framer's gun. I have red and pink and I swear the red is more "industrial". My pink one started squeaking after only one crop. The red one I had had for several years of use already. I still keep the pink one for cards. That way I keep the red loaded with AF tape for weekend crops and grab the pink one with general purpose for a card here and there (and let the kids use it too).

The red one is better made. It's really for framing and everyday use.

I have both.
The red one I bought years ago, the pink one a friend gave me in a RAK a few months ago.

I have only found the wider adhesive for the red one.
I have only found the thin adhesive for the pink one.

I also agree the pink one is harder to open then the red one.
