Default Adhesive question

Does anyone know what the product is that is used to attach gift cards, close mailers, and keep perfume samples in place in magazines? It is somewhat thick and very easily removed by rolling it off whatever it is affixed to. I send a lot of gift cards and would love the assurance that they won’t float around in the envelope and possibly tear it. Thanks!

I believe you are talking about a glue dot.

I’m not sure. The only glue dots I’m familiar with are the ones I use on my diy cards. They are not removable without tearing the paper. The stuff I am trying to find can be rolled off of whatever is stuck to it and leaves no residue. Are there glue dots that are like that? Do you have a brand name. Thanks!

That glue sure resembles glue dots but I totally agree that's not quite what it is. I was curious, so googled:

The glue used to stick credit cards to paper is a pressure-sensitive hot melt adhesive – known as gummy, snot, or booger glue. It's very soft in nature so can be peeled and removed easily.


I also found a link to this:

Interesting!

Thanks, Linda...that is exactly the product I was trying to identify. Now why didn’t I think to look up “snot” or “ booger” glue�? My next challenge is trying to figure out if it is possible to use the $6 product without buying the $60 applicator gun.

Default 505 quilt basting spray

As a quilter I've had and used quilt basting spray. I had several spray cans and 1 leaked. It had a cleanish sticky plastic the acted just like the glue on the backs of cards that you mentioned. You could try to find out if the glues are similar. You could skip the $60.00 sprayer! Spray cans of this stuff isn't cheap, I think I saw JoAnn's Odif 505 at 16.00

Default Gummy strips in magazines

I think the strips of gummy stuff that attaches things in magazines is probably rubber cement. I use rubber cement quite a bit with card crafting. It allows time for repositioning, dries clear, strong bond, and excess will rub away!

She told me LIQUID LATEX. i didn't get any yet, but it does sound ( from the AMAZON post description)like this would work. hope this link works, but if not you now know the name of the type of product.

Aren't there a lot of allergic problems with latex?

Default glue dots

Yes there are removable glue dots on a roll. They can be large, up to about 2/3 inch diameter. They are thick and tacky. I have a roll of glue lines too that are the same stuff. They are called Glue Lines are are manufactured by GLue Dots International LLC.

I agree with the earlier posters who said that rubber cement is often used by magzines for inserts that are neatly removed.

If you need a lot look at a commercial company like U-Line. They sell repositionable glue dots which I’m pretty sure are what you are looking for. I got some permanent ones to stick two individually packaged biscotti together for my sisters wedding favours. They are awesome. You don’t need a dispenser, just use them like glue dots!

Wow, I should have known I would get lots of ideas here. I don’t need a lot of whatever it is, but I would certainly like to try something. Thank you all so much!

Try Zots. They come in dots and strips. Joann Fabrics carry them and Wal-Mart used to as well.

I have a tape runner that is known as temporary tape. It can be used to place your things down before you make it permanent...make sure you like your layout,,etc.. anyway I call it bugger tape. You “pull” off your item, and take your finger and roll, it off. Works great. I got mine at Scrapbookingmadesimple.. They have great products, very reasonable (if not cheaper) items from other companies, and free shipping over $50. This particular tape is their brand, called simply defined. It you are unsure, you can email and they respond quickly. Look at the utubes. Gals name is Stacy. Her laugh takes some getting used to, but worth watching them!

It's actually called "Fugitive Glue" if that helps.

I tried a Zot. It tore the cardstock and left a residue on the gift card. I do use them in card making when I want things to stay forever.

It is so funny you asked this. The other day when I was fighting with getting the DS tape off a die yet again, I was thinking why cant all stamping companies use those dots! A few do (I don't remember names now) and I am always SO happy to get those b/c it is so easy to the product off the packaging.

Yes I know about goo gone and I use that but I don't wanna have to. (whine) Those dots totally rock! I LOVE THEM. I would want to get some too if I was going to attach a GC to a card or something!

So I looked at the first snot one...that one says it has lead in it so for me that is out. I looked at the next one and that did not seem right either...(I feel like Goldilocks LOL) but the Uline looks like the right one-but it is a lot of them and some money. And they are 1/2 inch though we probably could cut them down. 

Now I am on the hunt! LOL

Rubber Cement is an inexpensive, versatile adhesive. Look for it in stores like Wal Mart and Office Supply.

You can put globs of Aleen's Tack it Again and Again on some of the sticker backing paper and let it "dry". It makes a decent removable glue dot.

Thanks, melonhead. BlackDove recommended the same product, and I finally got myself a bottle. My local Hobby Lobby stores didn't have it, but Michael's did. I tested it out, and it will work just fine. I would bet that rubber cement would work also, but I think I can see more use for the Aleen's product.


Thank you to all who participated in my search!
