These are one of my least favourite crafting supplies. They always tear when I try to put them on or I hoard them too long and they loose there transferable quality (or whatever you call it).
How do other people feel about them?

Never really had any problems with rub ons myself, but they aren't something I've used a ton on.
I love the new Jenni Bowlin ones, especially the feathers & the jar.

I've had great luck with some (even after longer periods of time), and horrible luck with others from the start. After some of the more disappointing happenings, I think I'll likely stay away from them.

Bought bunch but never really used them. That is one of the stashes I need to go through & purge the bad ones & try to use some of the ones that are still food. I will not be buying any new rub ins regardless of how cute they are.

I like a good rub on. Jenni Bowlin's are my favorite. Other companies could learn from her.
My signatures are turned off,
so I have nothing cute to say.

They're not back for me. I'm terrible at using them, and I'm not wild about it even when I get them on properly.

Not a fan. It's too easy to make a mistake and don't seem to keep for very long. They seem like a good idea but I just can't get them to work. I don't think I'll be wasting any more money trying to get them to work
|Posted: 1/13/2013 5:40:30 AM|
Hate them hate them hate them! Wish they would not come back I always missed part then my paper looked funny because I never rubbed them right.
|Posted: 1/13/2013 6:05:19 AM|
I like rub-ons in general. But it really depends on the brand. Some brands rub on like butter (even 3 years later) and others don't transfer at all.
|Posted: 1/13/2013 6:39:29 AM|
I stay away from them, too. I've been burned too many times with bad quality, bad application and ruined projects.

I've never had problems with rub-ons, but they are probably my least used product & I have a ton of them in my collection.
I'd have to really flip out over the new designs to jump on board with them again.

I like a good colorful rubon. Some come off really easy and I'd like to keep it that way.

I love them! Most of them are from BG and the only problem is that my most favourite designs are gone quickly.

I have had one come off. But it depends where they came from. I have used others and they are still there, years later. I like them. Kaisercraft has some great ones and Lily Bee had some back in the beginning that went on so nice.

I love rub-ons and still have quite a stash. I have had a few bad experiences, but most are wonderful. They add depth without bulk and layering is easy.

|Posted: 1/13/2013 9:15:12 AM|I love them, used them back then, use them still, so glad they're back. I have rubons from back in 2005-2007 and they're still perfectly good.

I like rub ons (when they work!) even though I've slowed down using them. Maybe this will change that for me.

Thank goodness, I have a drawer full from the last big wave of rub-on popularity! They are relevent for now and look wonderful on a page. I just did a layout with some to help fill spaces that needed a little somethin' somethin'!

I have some from several years ago (Stampin Up) and the one I tried yesterday still works beautifully. I don't see myself buying more but I will try harder to use the ones I have.

I love rubons, but it depends on the maker. Some do fall off, some lose stickiness and some stick to the packaging. I don't like using alphas tho I use the designs. I'm glad JBS has some new ones.
|Posted: 1/13/2013 12:12:00 PM|
I love rubons! I use them on more than scrapbooking though. I put them on candles, glass, windows, shelves, anything flat that I can decorate.

I've had some of the Making Memories rub ons that go on great stick to the page protector. I will probably be avoiding buying new ones. It might inspire me to dig them out of my stash though.

I like rub ons, never had an issue using them, you just have to go over them good so they transfer. I've missed the titles that MME used to have. I love their paper titles but prefer the look of their old rub ons. Maybe they will start to make the rub ons again.

I love rub-ons when they work. I also still have a sizable stash of them, so not sure I'll be buying many until I put a dent in what I have.

I really like rubons as long as they are good quality. They are easy to use for me, and add a quick thin layer.

I like most rub-ons. I bought way too many of the Making Memories and Scrapworks alpha rubons. But I can't throw them out. I hope the new ones are easy to use.

I'm not going to try rub ins again! Too many wouldn't rub off - some tore - some rubbed on beautifully but have now rubbed off completed pages in my albums. I'm not risking it again!

I'm on the fence, on one hand it's nice to use something different, but on the other they don't always cooperate.
I will most likely buy some if they go with a collection I like.
