why i use and recommend Beacon Adhesives like Zip Dry and 3-in-1 Glue

i was working on a quick project tonight and grabbed a friend’s glue because it was handy. brand – not important – it IS a major brand glue recommended for paper crafting.

i was just gluing some cardstock to cover a composition book. figured how bad could the glue be? well it was THIS bad…


what you see in the above photos is:

1) glue lines showing through.

2) residue from the glue that leaked out under the edges which were then spread on my cover when i smoothed the cardstock down. the whitish residue won’t come off.

SO, i got up, walked to the other room and GOT MY ZIP DRY!!!

and glued on the back cover in the exact same manner as the front. and the result?


do you see any glue lines? residue? NO! and THAT is why i use and recommend BEACON ADHESIVES!!!

any stray glue leakage rubs off, paper is nice and smooth.

thanks for letting me share my glue drama!
