I have the pink ATG gun. I am reading people saying that only the gold label 908 tape is acids free, but I got the package from michaels that does not say gold but does say it is acid free. So is it actually acid free? I'm feeling confused and overwhelmed trying to sort out all the info I am reading online about the different refill options and different companies!

Thank you!!

My Michaels has not had the ATG refills in months. I was part of a tape share from the Tape Depot, and love their tape. I have the pink ATG, and they work fine in it. It is reverse wound acid free tape, and you can buy 12 rolls for about $30.00 with shipping.
Here is a link to the tape. I am on an Ipad, so it may not be a clickable link, but can be copied and pasted.

I buy the acid free tape from scrapookpal.com for my pink ATG. It's 50% off, and I have gotten it very quickly.

If it says acid free, it is. I can't imagine Scotch could get away with mislabeling it, or that even the all knowing peas would be able to tell. The concern is with the all purpose tape that is not labeled acid free.

That being said, I am probably going to order elsewhere when I need my next roll. I go through it so fast.

What she said. I buy mine from M's all the time. I usually wait for a 50% off coupon from either M's or J's to use on them. Most times they are sold out and slow to refill. So I like to keep a stock pile of them when I get the chance.

The tape is easy to steal at Ms so they don't know they are out of stock. I asked when they were getting it in so the cashier checked the inventory--it said they had 11 in store.

I used to always get my refills at Ms but I've checked 3 different Ms in the last month and they're always out of ATG refills. I finally ordered some from scrapbookpal.com and had them in a few days. I got free shipping because I spend over $25.

The tape you referenced is acid-free. My Ms and Joann's have been out lately but I found it on Amazon for 6.16 a 2-pack with free shipping on a $25 purchase. A bit more than Ms with a coupon but it saves me making a trip and then not finding it.

Ok so my next question- what is the difference between the gold label one and just the regular one at michaels that says acid free?

The peas are the best!!

Hm, I am glad I am not the only one who is having a hard time finding it! I am starting to wonder if people are stealing it now! I just emailed M's the other day about the issue that their ATG refills are out constantly. I asked Joann's too b/c theirs has never been full since they've had it, and, well, that's a useless thing to do there b/c they don't know if the sun rises in the East or west.

I haven't been able to find it at M's either, I haven't bothered looking at Joann's because I've NEVER been able to find it there, and now it's hard to find at HL too. It's crazy, it's not like it's made out of gold or something. I've got several boxes hoarded, and several tape rolls from my last order from TapeDepot.com, so I'm good for a while; I'll probably just keep ordering from TapeDepot because they ship fast and their prices are good.

I contacted corporate Michael's about the ATG tape. They couldn't tell me why it's been out of stock. Went to all three stores in my area and none of them have it. I even tried Joann's and asked them yesterday why they are always out. The woman told me her boss never knew they were out and just ordered some yesterday.

I mentioned that I belong on this board and many of us have been talking about how hard it's to find. Hopefully this will change!

2Peas is out of stock also, plus I can't find any at local retailers. I live in MN, shall I march on 3M headquarters and demand an explanation?

lascrapper, that made me smile! I pictured all these angry peas wielding empty ATG guns and storming the snowy entrance to 3M! Don't make a scrapbooker angry!

findtape.com I just ordered 26 rolls of the ATG adhesive, 2 rolls of foam tape (which I use instead of Pop Dots, just cut what i need!) and ALL of it, AFTER shipping $55.59.....seriously good stuff.

It is the "generic" tape, but really...$1.55 a roll? Yeah, I'll take it, and it's small to store, so i just stock up a couple times a year. Happy shopping!
