I tied like that for years and years until the new tying ribbon came out. I was still skeptical but it's cheeper than dirt so I gave it a try. Now it's all I use. My friend Noah has it on his website. www.specteams1.com. It's available in clear and black and makes a really great looking tie that won't come loose when you pull the frame out of your pocket.

Any color can be used for wrap and tuck as long as it has a little stretch. I save scraps and broken bands and cut them in strips. Some folks buy a bag of office bands for wrap and tuck.

Use the old bands for wrap . What else are you going to use them for ?
Recycle broken bands for me too
Yeah, me too. I just cannot waste stuff. I am a product of my raising.

But also I love that tying ribbon stuff. Office bands look a bit untidy to me and snag in pocket sometimes.

Another vote for the amber tape tying ribbon stuff. All I use now. Bought ten rolls. Both clear and black. Good stuff!
