    I am talking about the glue which is used to stick credit cards etc to paper(in junk mail etc). The stuff which sticks but not real sticky. What is it called and where can I get it? The local HD & lowes people seems to be not aware of this.

    It's rubber cement.

    Try the craft stores...as an artist, I've been using rubber cement since I was a kid. It's great for holding sculptures (and other art projects) temporarily in place.

    No, rubber cement is much stickier and has a definite solvent smell. Plus it is highly toxic and probably not for distribution to the general public. My dad was a commercial artist and I grew up smelling that stuff, I'd know if it was rubber cement.

    I suspect the little balls are some type of hot glue, like they use in hot glue guns.

    Probably like these here:

    That's the kiddie stuff. Here's the stuff my dad used by the gallon:
    Best Test

    Highly flammable and toxic if swallowed and it smelled like turpentine.

    I think Jeff is right about the glue gun:

    LOL - I love how it's actually called "Credit Card Glue"LOL - Not only did we do that in art class, but we'd spread the stuff all over the art tables and then roll it all up into a giant "SuperBall".

    That credit card glue(fugitive adhesive) is what I was looking for, but not want to get it for that much $. Will try the rubber cement.

    Thnx for the replies.

    If we all send you the glue from the credit card companies, you will be floating in it..... [​IMG]
