    I have been to all sorts of stores today trying to get my hands on clear, contact paper to use to put name tags on desks, etc...Walmart, Target, Michael's, and the Dollar Tree didn't have it. Is it really that hard to find? when I taught a few years ago, we always could find it at Walmart. I would prefer this for the name plates, but what else do you all use....packing tape maybe? :dunno:

    I use wide, clear packing tape because it is cheaper and I have found that it sticks to the desks better.

    Walmart didn't have clear contact paper in the kitchen storage area? That's where I got mine a few weeks ago.

    No and I was shocked :dunno: After I searched, I asked an associate to help me and we checked both the kitchen section and then the craft section. I am going to check another one near my house, but it seemed odd!

    I was thinking of using this too, as I have a bunch on hand. I remember using contact paper on desks before, but I don't think I've used the packing tape previously.

    Staples had it last time I was there, but it was almost double the price from Wal Mart. Hmm, maybe you could call the other wal mart and ask.

    My local teacher supply store also carries it, so if you have one of those near you, you could check with them.

    I was going to say that too-Lakeshore sells huge rolls of it-it's probably more expensive, but it lasts me all year.

    I think contact paper comes off more cleanly when you want it off than tape does.

    I really wish I would have read this thread before yesterday. I just ordered those really expensive things for the name tags from really good stuff.. .Wow clear contact paper would have been so much cheaper!!!

    I bought some at Meijer a few weeks ago, in the aisle with the kitchen type shelving. They had a ton, about $6/30 ft. roll I think.
