We have a huge range of adhesives available on shelf. A big variety of all different kinds too, which is wonderful. We are spoilt for choice!
A quick rundown for you.....
There area few main types of adhesives- meaning you have choice for what is best to use for different projects and adhering different surfaces.
Most know their favourites, but if you don't, ask us in-store and we can give you some advice!
Tapes and Tape Runners, ATG gun, double sided, dot runners, repositionable, red line tapes, Foam tapes....it goes on...and on!
All of these adhesives are dry, which means it won't make your paper warp, it is usually a nice strong bond....though not all tapes ARE strong (but sometimes that just means they are repositionable) Look for one that is strong, with a long lasting bond.
BEST FOR- paper & cardstock
Mandii's favourite-X-Press It
Janine's favourite-X-Press It Double Sided Tape/ Foam tape
Lydell's Favourite- Scotch ATG Gun
These are like the name suggests....wet! They are usually very strong, and difficult to undo once glued....(which is usually great!) They can have a tendency to warp or wrinkle paper, so you choose what is most suitable for the surfaces you are gluing
BEST FOR- Strong bonds, flowers, metal embellishments, chipboard, heavy paper, card or chipboard, wood.
Mandii's favourite- Scotch Tacky Glue
Janine's favourite- Helmar 450
Lydell's favourite- Scotch ATG Gun
These are in pen form, sometimes the 'de-press to release' type, sometimes ball point, sometimes super fine-tip nozzle. There are great for fine detail gluing and adhering things like diecut words. They are filled with wet adhesive
BEST FOR- Fine detail gluing, small surfaces, quick and easy gluing
Mandii's favourite- X-Press It 2 in 1 Pen and Brush
Janine's favourite- Needle-tip applicator (with liquid PVA style glue)
Lydell's favourite- ZIG Two-way glue pen
GLOSSY GLAZE ADHESIVES
These types have super strong bonds, and are glossy, meaning they make awesome glossy finishes when used as a sealant or finish, on top of surfaces, as well as being good for adhering things down really well.
BEST FOR- Strong bonds, metal embellishments, fine detail gluing, small flowers, beads
We have a couple of versions in store but our favourite one is the NUVO Crystal Glaze. It clogs less, does not yellow and has a nice consistency for self leveling when using it to gloss your embellishments.
