As a part time job I make greeting cards and sell them in local shops around the area. This being the case I have spent a great deal of time using and researching the many different types of glue products on the market. After many failed purchases and half full tubes strewn about my studio I happened too stumble upon Zigs 2 Way Memory Glue. At first glance I was definitely skeptical. I have spent many an hour fighting with paper wrinkles, curled edges and dirty application methods to be anything else. However upon going home and assembling my first card I was begining to see maybe I had jumped to conclusions far too fast.

Now at first sight the applicator seemed fairly mess proof ... shake and press until glue appears. I began the process and was initially horrified when blue glue bagan emgering from the stick. Many a bad memory with those purple glue sticks in elementary school make me squeamish about unusual glue colors. However after allowing the glue to dry I was surprised to see it dried absolutely clear. There was no evidence or smurf tracks anywhere on my piece of paper. Satisfied with this development I glued several pieces of paper to a card. Not only was there no wrinkling to be found but the glue becomes tacky before a permanent setting allowing a quick placement change if necessary. Very similar to rubber cement but without half the mess and no rubbing glue balls off your fingers for ten minutes afterwards.

Other highlights this glue would also be great for scrapbookers since it happens to be acid and xylene free. And I have yet too encounter a single applicator that has leaked.

Disclaimer: This glue does not bond well to metallic covered papers. **Glue monkies, (you know who you are), if you apply this product to thickly to certain paper surfaces wrinkling may occur for saturation and over application.
