    Omnigrid Invisigrip

    Hi...I bought a roll of Omnigrid Invisigrip and, maybe it is me, but when I applied it to my template it actually feels like it is more of a slippery surface than when nothing was on the template...it has a slick feel to it. I read the instructions...very simple. Just wondering if anyone else feels the same. I was hoping for a more 'sandpaper type' backing.

    Thanks and have a great day!

    I agree with you. I used it on one ruler and put the rest in my garage sale!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I like it...I prefer it to the sandpaper dots. But use what works for you!

    I agree with rebeljane, the GripStrips work much better for me than the Invisigrip did. I'm in the process of replacing all the Invisigrip with GripStrips!

    Go to the drugstore and buy some Nexcare 3M tape.
    It's a lot cheaper and more effective than the Invisigrip.

    are you putting it on the back of your rulers or templates as you posted? I've used it on my rulers (cut a tad smaller than) and it worked well enough. Now most of my rulers are Omni-grip and they don't move easily at all.

    Hi...thanks for answering. Yes, I peeled the paper off and put it on the back of my template...it is very smooth not gripping. When I took out the sheet it feels very smooth so right away I thought how is this going to grip. Maybe something is wrong with mine.

    I used it once, too. Then my friend Peggi sent me some Steady Betty strips and I swear by them now. They're on every ruler I own, including the longarm rulers!

    I use little dots I think they are called True Grip - got them at the LQS. They work well for me.

    I didn't care for the Invisigrip either. For some reason, even though I applied it correctly, it keeps falling off my rulers at the corners. Very annoying!! I like the dots better.

    The Invisigrip works well for me and I like it, but you have to use whatever works for you and you feel confident using.

    I use InvisiGrip on my computerized screen on my Machines. It keeps them fingerprint free and protects them from getting damaged in anyway by pins or scissors.
