Product Review: Glue Glider Pro
by Patter Cross (Feb 5, 2010)
Adhesives are so important to a paper crafter yet finding one that a crafter loves can be so hard. Recently I had the chance to play with the Glue Glider Pro by Glue Art, since my favorite adhesive is no longer being sold. Let's look at what I found out about this adhesive.
The Glue Glider Pro applicator measures 5 ½" from the tip to the back of the unit, and it measures 7" from the top to the bottom of the handle. It is a nice size yet not too big. I have very tiny hands and carpal tunnel syndrome, and I do not have any problem using this applicator.
The Glue Glider Pro can be used on paper, plastic, wood, chipboard, metal, glass, foam, and more. It is also acid-free and safe on your photos.
There are four types of adhesive cartridges available for the Glue Glider Pro applicator. They are the:
Let's look at the differences between the cartridges.
Perma Tac Adhesive
This adhesive cartridge has 40 feet of 1/4" wide strip adhesive. It is a permanent adhesive and is cut every 1/16" so you can use a small amount or in a continuous line.
High Tac Adhesive
This adhesive cartridge has 60 feet of 1/4" wide diamond-patterned adhesive. It is a permanent adhesive that is cut in a diamond pattern and allows you to use a small amount of adhesive or use it in a continuous line.
Perma Squares Adhesive
This adhesive cartridge has over 720 squares that measure 1/4" x 1/4" with a 1/2" space in between each square. This allows you to use just one square of adhesive or you can use it in a continuous line also.
This is a removable adhesive that has 1/8" x 1/4" strips with a 1/8" gap in between each strip. There are over 2,000 segments of repositionable adhesive in this cartridge.
Pros & Cons
As with any adhesive, there are things you will love about it, and things you may dislike about it. Let's look at some of the things I found with the Glue Glider Pro applicator and adhesive cartridges.
Overall, I like the Glue Glider Pro. Visit the Glue Arts site at to see a video demonstration of the product and adhesive cartridges. I hope you will give the Glue Glider Pro a try. I think you might find it a nice addition to your crafting supplies! Have fun!
