Has anyone tried this stuff?

These are dry adhesive sheets. Instead of using spray mount you would use these instead. Every time I use spray mount I feel like my lungs are collapsing. Atomized Glue + Lungs = Can't be good! I am going to try to track down either of these at the art store to test them out.

I used the studiotac quite a bit in school, since I had a major aversion to sprayglue, for the reason you mentioned.

I like it lots. The only thing is that it's pressure sensitive, so you have to use a squeegee or bone-folder to push everything flat. So sometimes that messes up your prints if you're not being careful, using a slip sheet or whatever.

but overall I'm a fan.

i've used some of this stuff before(not these brands tho') but some of them come with a textured glue on the back so when you apply it to your prints, it sometimes shows thru like a pattern- not cool!
I highly recommend testing on practice ones before going for the real deal.:)))

I used letratac all through school and it works great. It comes with a sheet of wax paper to place over your piece and a tool kind of like a bone-folder to smooth it out.

However, four years later, I found that old projects I kept around have curled at the corners and become unstuck. I guess it's more if you're looking for a temporary fix.

the pratt store sells large amounts of studiotac. it's rather overpriced & i don't enjoy it's stickiness factor very much, but a lot of my classmates like it.

I am looking for a temporary bond, so this stuff sounds like it would work well.

yup, back when I had a "real" job, I use to use this stuff alot for presentations and what not. Great stuff, but definitely not long-lasting. Plus, its kinda pricey. But it does the job.

I've used the studiotac and really like it... I had it in my studio for a couple years before I finally really gave it a try... for a dry type of application it's great... easy to use and reliable. Lovely blog, it's been fun visiting! All my best!

Haven't used either, but I've sold the studio tac before. Also something out there called Cello-Mount, which is similar to a large sheet of double sided tape. It comes in 8x10 and 20x30 sizes.
