Sticky (est) Mac-tac

I'm using Lepage Fun-Tak (blue) to tack down set items but have heard of some super sticky grey stuff that comes in a sheet. Does anybody know what brand this might be and possible distributors? Or any other brand that's working for them? Have already rejected Ross (blue) and Holdit (white).

I know it's not quite what you're after, but I'll toss it out there anyway. When you get a new credit/bank card, it's usually stuck to a paper card with some super-sticky clear plastic goop. I got a larger supply of it when I bought some new cookie sheets; two great lines of the stuff were holding the cardboard labels on. This stuff is fantastically sticky, lightweight and certainly translucent, if not transparent. I can be X-Acto'd into smaller thinner shapes too, and it's reusable. Worth checking out. -j

Yeah, that stuff's almost as much fun to play with as bubble wrap!
