how can they not have sticky tack?

sticky-tack2.jpgNow how can my local Parent Teacher store not have Sticky Tack? Seriously, who uses this stuff? Parents and teachers. I fit into both of those categories. They had some hard waxy stuff instead that they were trying to pass off as sticky tack. They also had some very hard dots as well. I need the soft, pliable stuff I can easily pull apart and work between my fingers and stick to paper.

    Guinever,
    I bought some tape they had. I am not sure what it is called, but it is along the lines of masking tape, but whiter. It works great. Holds heavy maps, but doesn’t take paint off. Does this qualify for what you are looking for?

    Ha! That’s funny! The waxy stuff is the only thing I can find that works on the rough brick walls at the Study Center. At home though, Sticky Tack is great for smooth surfaces like drywall.

    They do have this two sided tape stuff that works great. And doesn’t make marks on the wall. I think this is the product: http://www.amazon.com/3M-Double-Sided-Mounting-Removable-MMM4012LONG/dp/B000CCYD18

    Well… except it stains walls painted with flat paint. I found that out the hard way. It leaves oil marks.

    OK, ladies. Thanks for all your input! I guess I should have said what I was using it for. I already have the tape Whitney mentioned which I use for posters on the wall and it works for me! And I don’t use sticky tack on the wall because it leaves marks plus stuff falls down too easily.

    What I’m using the sticky tack for is paper on paper. I don’t want it to stick forever and I want to be able to easily move it. I use it for my MOTH (managers of their homes) schedule and with the sticky tack, I can easily manipulate the schedule without too much headache. If I used tape, the paper would probably rip when I tried to take it off…
