Advantages: dries quickly
Disadvantages: there is a little bit at the end which is always wasted
I like to make my own cards and invitations so I have a variety of craft glues and regular glues. I prefer the ease of the pritt stick as it involves little mess. Making cards is a fiddly business and I like to have attention to detail. I do not want my work spoiling by glue smudging out onto the work or card looking wavy as it is too saturated with glue.
==Price and availability==
The product costs around £1.00 from office shops or supermarkets.
==Description and directions==
The Pritt stick is an iconic glue and comes in solid form. It has a pull of sealable lid that click on and off and protects the glue from drying out. The glue works like a push up, there is a black base which is easy to grip as it has indentations. As you twist, the glue block moves up. To use it, glide the stick across the area you wish to glue and you will see a slight sticky see through residue dispensed on the paper. The harder you press the more glue you will end up with but it is not designed to be used with too much force. Thick glue clumps will not be very effective and will ruin the aesthetics of whatever you are gluing.
The pritt stick is easy to use as you do not need to get messy fingers. If you use it correctly; for sticking paper and card together you will find that this is a successful way of gluing without mess. It dries relatively quickly and you can use the glue over and over again as long as you remember to replace the cap after use.
When I have made cards and layered paper and card together, using pritt stick lightly avoids the paper rippling or becoming too wet. You just need very small daps in the corner of whatever you want to stick and then place it on to the other bit of card. I tend to leave a heavy book on top of the cards so that they dry quicker and flatter.
The cost of this glue is marginal compared with some of the other craft glues but this is by far the best as you need hardly anything and it comes in some a manageable form. I have also tried cheaper alternatives and found that the glue is really poor quality and does not stick anything! This is good quality and sticks really well, I recommend it.
Summary: A good quality glue for the office or home
