Default Zig 2 way glue pen....

I bought one of these awhile back after reading a lot of good reviews about it. It has never worked that well for me. No matter how quickly I use it to adhere something, it doesn't stick and I end up having to use something else. Am I the only one having this problem or am I doing something wrong??

Hmmm. That's odd. I love mine. I mostly use mine to adhere lighter weight papers to CS. For CS to CS I use my ATG gun.

I'm not a fan either - I made a bunch of cards with mine, and all the layers have since peeled off.

I like using mine to reposition elements...I change my mind all the time about where things should be positioned. I don't like using it as a permanent stick, because I to have had problems with layers peeling off over time.

Do not like them either. I'm wanting to try Tombow liquid glue.

It's great for dots of glitter. You have to adhere it while it's still blue for it to be considered permanent. If it turns clear, it's repositionable. That's why it's called 2 way glue.

Even when I use it when it's still blue, it just doesn't stick.

That's surprising. I've been using it for years, and I haven't had any problems. You do have to work quickly, though.

I only use it to adhere "stuff" to my paper/cardstock, but I LOVE it! I don't use it as an all purpose adhesive by any means. However, I LOVE it for it's applications!

mono multi is a phenomenal liquid glue- their blue one though- the aqua I think it's called- is HORRIBLE. Warps paper/cardstock in the worst way!

I have several glue pens, include the Zig one, but none of them have worked well. After awhile everything falls apart.
I've given up on glue pens - I just think the pen design does not work well for a strong adhesive.

I'm another faithful user of the 2 way pen. I mostly use it for adding my dew drops or baubles. It does not seem to work well on paper for me but does great on everything else.

I do use both styles of the Zig 2 Way Glue Pens. They are not a very strong adhesive, but do work for certain applications. I use them mostly for very tiny pieces of the lettering when I make signs with the Design Studio. They are good for adhering the center pieces to the letters using the negative cut image. The tiny points on them and the liquid, but not runny glue does make it ideal for this application.

I don't find them strong enough any other applications.
