Arrow Bottle Cap Glues????

Hi Everyone..I need some help. I've been making bottle caps for a while now but I have been having issues with the glue I use. I have been using a craft glue but after about a year the glue dries out and the images pop off. I use epoxy stickers not resin. I need to find a new kind of glue to stick the image with the epoxy sticker to the bottle cap. I recently tried E6000 but I noticed the image looks cloudy after a few days. What kind of glue works best for you guys? I have read online about possibly sealing the back of the pictures..has anyone done this?

You are asking about glue to stick your images on the bottlecap itself? If that is the case then I know a lot of use an Xyron Sticker maker, just the small little x shaped one, with the permanent adhesive cartridge in it. Never had an issue, and in a pinch if I run out I have used modge podge.

I have been making them for quite a while now and found the best way for me to do it is use Mod Podge. I first paint a thin coat/layer of modpodge on the blank bottlecap it self and also on the flat side of the image and the epoxy sticker on the other side. once dry I put another layer on the bottlecap and stick it on the bottlecap. I have had good luck so far and its been working great.

With my sticker maker mines still fell off. I did work for a while though. I use Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive (white bottle red sticker) so far so good.

Where do you find the Mod Podge? Never heard of it.

I buy it at Walmart. They also have it at Michaels, Hobby Lobby. It has lasted me a year now.

Thanks for all the great ideas ladies. I tried the glue gun and it works so good. The process is a lot faster too.
