5.0 out of 5 stars Cool stuff!, June 13 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got Set 1 (plastic, lace look) which contains a fun, colourful bunch of sticky tapes. Colours and designs were exactly as shown here in photos. I felt they're very good value for money for their variety and length. Strong adhesive too. An instant, easy way to brighten up a card or any craft project. At times, I've used a thinner tape in the middle of one of these to change the look or cut them in half lengthwise (w/ a steel ruler and cutter) to make them slimmer or look less 'girly'......very versatile, IMHO. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars So easy to use!, June 13 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's works exactly as described and is true to seller's photos. Works on metal or thicker plastic tubes incl. hair colour, artist's paints and toothpaste. Good quality and sturdy construction all over plus it's finished well with no sharp edges. Has a nice, solid feel to it too, nothing flimsy. Makes squeezing a real breeze as it needs just a light grip to hold the two ends while rotating the butterfly nut. A great find for such a reasonable price - absolutely worth it!

A truly super-value pack as it's hard to find them in retail stores. The ones I found were more than twice the cost. Good quality blades too. For ease of use and storage, it has 10 smaller packs of 10 blades each.

The lined page makes it so much easier. Keep in mind they're not super-sticky but work well. Very good value too as the lined ones aren't always available in retail stores.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality & finish, May 28 2016
I've used it so far for B&W docs w/ pics on a Brother laser printer. Really smooth finish in feel and look, has a good weight and prints very well without causing jams or smudges. It's truly great value, IMHO. First time using this brand - what a difference!

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy time and effort-saver!, Feb. 25 2016
I've used this on curtains and pant hems, it lasts without fail even with machine-wash & tumble dry, is a huge time-saver and best of all, has no offensive odour when it melts. On denim, the hem does become a bit stiff. Recently, I made simple, no-sew, overlap-type cushion covers (see photos, IKEA fabric w/ selvage & finished edges). Instructions for use - albeit in micro-sized font - on the back are easy to follow: No steam, medium-high iron for a few seconds along the length and repeat on the other side of fabric. For finer/ thinner fabric, I keep moving the iron gently to avoid burns. Once the iron cools down, clean it w/ a damp cloth to avoid any transfers. I got this value pack at a local craft store but, Amazon's price is unbeatable. Very handy, versatile and long-lasting - 2 rolls ea of Super strength (19mm wide x 7.3m ea) and 2 rolls ea of Regular strength (9.5mm wide x 9.1m ea).

5.0 out of 5 stars A teacher who walks his talk, Feb. 9 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Stephen Jenkinson's words are worth their weight in gold - at times heavy-duty in prose but so very valuable. I highly recommend buying his DVD "The Haiku Sessions" (from his site, "Orphan Wisdom") as a companion to the book. "Griefwalker" (a NFB doc. by Tim Wilson) was the first time I heard about him and his work. In all his books and radio interviews, I've never found him to be preachy or claiming to know it all or even promise any sort of 'redemption'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, Feb. 9 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used this (black) for an Acer 11" laptop. It works very well and has a good quality material plus strong seams - nothing cheap-looking or feeling, is what I'm saying! Fingerprints don't show as much and can be easily wiped off. Just wish there was a stronger or extra clasp instead of just the magnetic seal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it, Nov. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Thanks to all previous reviewers who added photos, I knew it was a great product for a very reasonable price. It fits perfectly (on Model # MGL12CL/A) - just place, push to click and all openings line up perfectly. The red-black cover is very sleek w/ a richer & deeper red than shown in the photo. Overall finish & design are very well done. All flip/ fold options work as shown. If you leave the "Locks" sound on (iPad settings), you'll hear a click when you close the cover.

The only minor drawback - the smooth finish on the back (black) shows fingerprints, drag marks or scratches quite easily. Wiping it w/ a soft, dry cloth does help to remove some of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool & fun but don't last very long, Nov. 17 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
ETA: I've since revised my rating to 3-stars (from 5) because they didn't last as long as I'd hoped for. Also, they need constant shaking or 'pumping' to make the ink flow. :-(
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I chose these for the reversible tips feature - just pull out the tip, flip it over & insert for bullet or chisel style. I did the switcharoo before first use to avoid getting ink on my hands. Later on, I did switch one marker back to chisel tip and found that wash-up (stains on skin) was very easy.
Activating the marker - follow instructions printed on the side of marker. It does take a few GENTLE pumps (pressing tip down & push repeatedly) to make it work.

Great results on mirror and whiteboard (WB) for everyday lists and doodles. On WB, a very faint ghost image shows after wiping off w/ a damp cloth - could also be because the board is old. Colours on caps (in 1st photo) are closest to what you get - more neon than traditional, IMO. It even wipes off w/ a dry paper towel.

I'm not sure how long they'll last in comparison to traditional WB markers but, the absolute ease of clean-up (on skin), wipe-off (from surface) and the sheer brilliance & choice of fun colours make them such a joy to use!
