Get it right every time with Glue Dots® the most versatile, easy-to-use adhesive available. Glue Dots®, also referred to fugitive or booger glue, are ideal when affixing embellishments in Craft, Scrapbooking, Greeting Card or card making projects or when minute details are necessary, like for Printing or Bindery. Prepare a large amount of product in a short amount of time for Direct Mail or Promotional Packaging and Bundling, or use for important safety information like in Pharmaceutical and drug packaging. Easily adhere any two substrates together by touching the object to the Glue Dot® or by using the Dot Shot Pro to apply the dot to the item. Regardless of how they’re used, no other adhesive can offer the range, reliability, and ease in use like Glue Dots ® from Gluefast. Cleaner and safer than hot melt glues, Glue Dots ® won’t leave behind messy aftereffects like with industrial adhesives or double-sided tape (some surfaces may stain so testing is recommended). Whether you need an easy-to-remove hold or semi-permanent, Glue Fast has what your business is looking for with Glue Dots ® available in four different tack strengths ranging from low, medium, high, or super high and three different thicknesses, known as profiles, including low (1/64th inch thick; the standard), medium (1/16th inch thick), and high (1/8th inch thick).
