Default Re: Line clips "correctly"

I use the same glue from Walmart and if I have an accident and need to take apart as long as there is no metal on them I put it in microwave for a little bit and they come apart easier. I do the same with my Gerber daisy that I have gotten and can't get apart.

Every cilp I could pull apart easily!

Finally, I bought some glue at walmart. I think it starts with an "a". Sorry I'm not close to my stash, or i'd go look. It's a clear bag with burgundy on it....
This glue rocks. I also bought the glue gun from walmart with a small nozzle.
This duo has now made my clips super strong & I cannot pull anything I glue apart. If I do, it usually ends up ripping the fabric or making a huge blemish in whatever it was.

I hope that helps. It took me forever to figure this out! I almost stopped selling stuff b/c i thought everything was going to fall apart.

Then I switched to a Surebonder high temp glue gun, and Surebonder (is that the name? Something like that at least...) glue sticks. Those were okay, but when I was ready to make large quantities of clippies I switched to the tape. I started out with Jodees Sealah tape and LOVED it, but it was pretty expensive. So I switched to Specialty tape and didn't love it *as much* but it was still so simple and fun (really!) to line clips with it.

However, I just now (a few weeks later) noticed that some of my bigger bows that have tape lined clips, the ribbon is pulling away from the clip. When I smoosh it back on, it sticks well again, but this is definitely not okay.

So, my verdict: I'm going to buy Aileens glue sticks when I run out of these, I'm going to continue to use Specialty tape to line clippies (because it's smooth, easy to use, and I've not had issues with them) but for clips that bows will go on, I'll use a tape/hot glue combo to make SURE they're stuck good.
I could've written this post! (I actually did, in another part of the forum lol ) I have to say that AdTech glue sticks have been working great for me though. However, I do combine tape + glue now when lining clips. So far, it seems to work much better than just tape.

i'd really love to know the name of the glue . . . it's so hard to find one that comes w/such a high recommendation!

Pr.. not sure if you've tried them yet, but I've had great success with AdTech glue sticks

I want to say the WM brand is AdTech. I am not at home right now, but will check when I do get home and let you know. I had run out of glue stick and our WM here was out of stock so I had to use some that I bought at HL and they do not hold at all. I ended up driving to the next nearest WM (30 minutes away) to get those darn glue sticks. LOL.
