We recommend using Zip Dry Glue for all your mounting needs.
The glue sets in about 10 seconds to give you time to adjust, and center the piece. Only a small continuous bead (the thinnest glue line you can make) around the border only of the piece to be mounted. Too much glue will seep through your paper & ruin your project. Practice first!
- When you cut the tip of the nozzle just clip enough for the smallest amount of glue to pass through.
- If any glue shows out from the edges, wait for it to dry, and it can simply be rubbed away with the friction of your finger tip.
- Zip Dry Glue should not crinkle or buckle the paper if the proper amount is used.
- Always recap your Zip-Dry Glue or it will dry up & you will have to re-cut the tip every time you use it.

This is the greatest glue ever!!! I tried so many things from sticky tabs, tacky glue, regular glue....always was mad when things would wrinkle the paper..or not stick to shimmer cardstock. I make at least 200-500 invitations in a month, and this glue really goes a long way!

I never write reviews on products. However, this glue is so amzing that I owed it a review. 1 a little goes a really long way 2 you have time to move your paper into place before it strats to dry 3 once it dries you can be sure that your paper will not come apart and 4 if you get any extra glue on the outside of the paper you can simply rub it away once it dries. This is def worth buying if you dyi your invitations and makes the finished product look smooth and professional.
A little goes a long way

I assembled 100 envelope liners, 100 belly bands, 100 x 3 invitation mats (there were 3 mats on each invitation panel) and I must say that a little goes a long way. The guy I talked to on the phone from C&P recommended that I get at least 3 bottles, so I got 4, bu then I only ended up using 1.5 bottles. So just keep in mind that a little will go a really long way.
Everything else they say about the glue is true: You can rub the extra away before it dries with your finger, you can reposition for a few seconds before it dries, and it creates a clear bond that doesn't pucker the paper. Oh, and it stinks and gives me a headache, so be sure to use it in a well-ventilated area (I kept the kitchen exhaust running).
Best Glue on the Market

As a stationery designer, I have tried my fair share of adhesive products, from glue dots, to gluesticks, to spray on glue. Of everything I have tried over the years, Zip Dry is by far the BEST glue on the market. It does not wrinkle your paper, it's very easy to use, and it has a strong bond (while giving you those crucial few seconds to move the paper around before it bonds). It is often difficult to find at local craft stores, so I highly reccommend ordering a bottle with every large project! Thank you C&P for intoducing this product to me!
