Product Review - Scotch ATG Adhesive Applicator: Pink


For those of you who always wanted an ATG Gun but didn't want to invest the money in one, 3M has answered your calls.

Scotch is now offering the NEW PINK 1/4" ATG (Advanced Tape Glider) gun specifically designed for scrap-bookers.

Please note! This is the same size as the ATG714 and will hold all .25" tape designed for ATG use.


List Price 29.99


* Lightweight

* touch of the trigger releases the adhesive and liner for quick, controlled application of tape

* Applies adhesive transfer tape while simultaneously removing and rewinding the liner

*The liner is captured on a secondary spool, leaving only the adhesive on the surface

* Uses ¼” adhesive (great for photo mats)

* Easy to load and operate.

* No mess or clean-up. Saves time and effort


* Gun can be difficult to open (especially if you are used to the yellow ATG 700 gun)

* Tape must be ordered online

Overall, we love the new Scotch Pink ATG product. It is much easier to use for long periods of time. We love our ATG 700 Gun, but due to the light weight of the new PINK it is wrist friendly! Much better for all you all night croppers!

When we were at St. Charles Scrapbook Expo, we were on the fence deciding if we really wanted to invest in another gun since we already had the 700. Basically we talked ourselves out of the new gun as we walked around the show. However, after our second circle around the booths, we were right where we started our morning in front of the Albums and Answers booth. We touched, we used, we played, we talked and finally bought the new guns! Oh Boy! We are super happy we made the investment!

Out of 5 possible crabs, this one will earn 5 crabs!


  1. Thanks for the review. Could you tell me how well the adhesive works? How strong is the bond? I would like to try it out on my cards and was wondering if that adhesive would survive the mail.

  2. You should try Tape Solutions Inc dispensers and refills. they will send you samples of the ATG tape
