Dated 2005 by Scrapworks and they still went on like butter!! I know lots of you hate rubons (and with reason because some of them are terrible), but I have always loved the ones by this company. Still haven't dried out. Why can't all rubons work this way?!?!

I love those rub-ons and the Gin-x ones are wonderful, as well. haven't had an issue with either one, EVER.
Wish I could still
Get some of these...they are one of my go-to items for smaller titles on my pages, after Thickers, and Jillibean alphas.

I don't have if I've ever heard of GinX, but if they work like these I understand why you like them. I have a stash of the alphabets that came in a tin I need to go dig out because I forgot about them actually! Another reason I don't purge

I have a bunch of old rub-ons. I thought about purging them but haven't.

I guess I should try them and see if they work. Most of mine are MM. And some are probably 7 years old.

I use alpha rub-ons all the time!!! I have the making memories ones that I bought off the for sale or trade board. I wish you could still find these often.

I love rubons....especially the texture ones they are coming out with now! I only started scrapping in 2008 so most of the ones I have are from the last couple of years....
I notice a lot of the companies are coming out with new ones now...yay!

I love rub-ons. I still have a bunch of TLC (Top Line Creations) ones that are 7-8 years old. I used a few yesterday and they still work perfectly. I have no idea who made them for the company.

I love rubons also. They're incredibly versatile. I still have a ton left over, making memories, scenic route, tim holtz, fancy pants, creative imaginations, basic grey, Heidi swapp and others. None of them have dried out for me yet, and all go on very well, with exception of maybe the fancy pants ones, they still work but never did go on as easily as say mm or sr.

7 years to get here... So now what?

I stopped buying rub-ons ages ago because I had (and probably still have) so many of them that don't work no matter what I try. It's not that I don't love them... it's actually more of a love/hate relationship I have. I love them but hate the fact that they don't do what they're supposed to!

I love rub-ons too. I wish there were more to choose from. Thanks for the reminder to go into my stash and use more of the ones I have.

I love 'em too! The only ones I've had trouble with are the ones that came in a CK HOF page kit pack that I got from QVC. My MM ones are still goin' strong!

I pulled out some rub-ons the other day from the bottom of one of my stash drawers ... I hardly ever use rub-ons since getting ahold of some really bad ones a few years back ... I thought I would use these up on a distressed mini, because if they didn't go on well, it wouldn't really matter ...
These things went on like butter ... They were black and so vivid it looked like I just stamped the image ... I quickly grabbed up the package and turned it over ... They were from 2007 by Luxe Designs... <sigh> Of course they went out of business... This has me thinking that I may need to give rub-ons another try though ...

The Heidi Swapp ones I think were ones that didnt work so well, and I think I've had some BG ones that didnt work well, then some do. Glad some of you are digging yours out and putting them to use!
