We have been using Gripping Stuff for 5 years, and really love it - a compact, tidy and attractive way of displaying Xmas cards. I saw there were quite a few negative reviews, which surprised me. We usually stick ours to wallpaper, which works perfectly. We use new Gripping Stuff each year, because we've found reusing it for the next Xmas is not always successful (cards sometimes falling off etc).

I first bought one roll 3 years ago. It works perfectly every year. I needed more card hanging space and was more than happy to find that it is still in stock and I could buy more this year.

This fell off within seconds of being put up on a door and I only had 3 cards on it. Great idea but it doesn't work sadly.

So far so good..”
I was 50/50 with the reviews about this product. Put it up on painted walls it sticks really well no sign of it budging until the dec's come down. :)

The most important part of Christmas!”
by Mrs Johnson
I have used Gripping Stuff every Christmas since I first discovered it, some years ago, and it has saved so much frustration from trying to find ways of displaying cards clearly and in our restricted space. I have never had any problem with it sticking to walls (even though out house is old and these are uneven) and keeping all our cards displayed throughout Advent right up to Twelfth Night. New Gripping stuff is one of the first items of Christmas shopping each year - and then I roll it back up and keep it to reuse for birthday cards during the year, too.

Great - no stickiness issues!”
I'd read mixed reviews on here before ordering Gripping Stuff but I really liked the look of it and it was ideal for my living room. Glad to report I have had no problems with sticking and the strips stayed firmly in place over the whole festive period. I had no cards falling off and it was very easy to apply and remove (with no marks left on the paintwork at all). I'm really pleased with it and would recommend to anyone.

Perfect Card Hanger”
by Jenny Morris
If you are like me and want a tidy house at Christmas - this product is wonderful, I stuck mine on our wooden doors and staircase. It was very easy to use, even my children loved sticking up their cards with it. The best part... it took seconds to take down without any mess! I recommend this product very much. Not sure why the other review gave it such poor comments - they couldn't of bought it?

I bought 3 rolls of gripping stuff as a change from the card stands we usually have and thought the children would love putting the cards up on the strips. We have one strip that has stayed up continuously but the other 2.5 rolls are all over the floor and sticking to everyone's feet. I have never been let down by anything from Lakeland in 10+ years but this is a disaster.

Worked really well”
Stuck to varnished wood, diagonally, on side of staircase and remained there until taken off. I'm ordering more, now, for this year. Brilliant stuff :)

Doesn't do what it says on the box!”
This stuff is meant to stick to the wall and then you attach your cards to it............. well, the cards stick to it, but it prefers to stick to the carpet. The longest we got this to stay up was about 3 hours!!! We bought this last year and it was fab! Never fell down and cards stayed put on the wall for the full Christmas period, so bought it again this year (3 rolls of it!!) and something has changed :( Don't buy it!!!!!!

What a load of rubbish”
Gripping stuff for cards. After trying it out on wood, glass and paint put it in the bin. Ended up on floor each time within a hour. Waste of time, waste of money. Did anyone test this out !!!!!

After trying a number of other methods of displaying christmas cards, this 'stuff' povided the long lost solution. Easy to apply to a painted wall (maybe others tried a wallpapered wall?) and not one card has dropped off since being stuck on. My only disappointment is that it has sold out and I still have cards left over!

I bought 2 packs of this and my only wish is that I'd bought more. So far all my cards are still on it and it is still on the wall. I did wipe my wall before I put it up, maybe that is why I've not had any problems? Will definately buy more next year.

Within 4 hours of hanging this on the wall it had ended up on the floor!!!

Gripping Stuff grips the carpet better than the wall”
by Mrs Pamela Kerr
I purchased this to hang my Christmas cards in a different way. It certainly does that. They have spent most of the day 'hanging' on the floor. The cards stay attached to the 'stuff' but it wont stay attached to the wall. I have tried it on wallpaper and painted surfaces and neither works. Guess its back to 2 drawing pins and a piece of string!

by Mrs Thrower
I stuck this on the lounge door in order to display my Christmas cards. It only lasted a day and a half before it fell down. The cards stick to the product well but the product doesn't stay stuck to a surface well at all. I am very disappointed.

Useless is the only word I can use to describe this. I thought it was the answer to but when I first put it on the wall it held for about 6 hours before falling off. When I tried to re- stick it, it lasted about 5 minutes. Sorry but this isn't up to the job.

I bought this last year and it was amazing, no more cards falling over. I will be repurchasing this year.

Poor standard of product”
The product let me down. The adhesive strip peeled off the wall after one day. This left my cards in a pile on the floor. Lucky the cards didn't fall into my open fire.

Gripping stuff - great idea”
Thought this product was really good. Usually I get fed up with where to put the cards without them constantly falling over etc....but tried gripping stuff and it really works well. Cards attach to it easily and it sticks to walls, or doors etc.
