Default 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!

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.
