Default Please help! Xyron sticker maker for bottle caps?

I am so confused! How do these work? Do you print the images first and then put them through the sticker maker? Do you then just attach it with glue? I am about to purchase some of the epoxy drops and wasn't sure if there that was how it worked.

If you are using the Xyron you do not need to use glue. You print out the image, punch it out, and then put the image through the Xyron. Then you stick the image onto the bottle cap. The epoxy drops are self adhesive and will go over the image. HTH!

I use the small purple xyron sticker maker for my bottlecaps. I believe it makes up to 1-1/2 wide stickers. I get the permanent sticker refill for it.
You just drop your precut 1" images face up and pull them through. When your ready to attach them to the bottlecap, just simply peel them off the backing and place it where you want it. No extra glue needed.
Using this sticker maker saved me so much time and headache as compared to glueing my images to the cap.
I hope that helps.

I would NOT make bottle caps without my Xyron...I love it!! And my bottle caps are a huge seller.

I put my resin drop onto my image first, then run it through the Xyron, then peel and stick to the bottle cap. Fastest, easiest, and best hold of anything I've tried!

I've never thought of doing that... What is the benefit of putting the drop on first?

I feel like I am the only one who has run into a bad batch of permanent adhesive for the sticker maker!
It seems to me that all the ones that have the new packaging pretty much are crappy!

Has anyone else noticed this?

I don't feel crazy now! All the ones I have bought with the new packaging are not as sticky. I can tell even when I peel the "sticker" off. It used to be so sticky, and I would always get it stuck to the table or whatever I had around. It isn't like that any more for me.

I had some orders I did around Christmas, that totally fell apart! I was so embarrased!

Hmmm, not really sure, it's just the way I started doing it.

I'm having the same problem. I'm wondering if a different type of adhesive will have to be used and given a day or so to dry before putting on the drops ?
