    Default Best re-positional glue

    Hi there, I am wanting advice on the best re-positional glue to use for my cards. As my eyesight is not as good as it used to be I like to be able to 'slide' my cardstock when matting and layering. I do use pinflair glue gel but have found that after awhile it starts to give off an odour (a strong soapy detergent smell). I contacted Pinflair and they even sent me a free tube but that is doing the same again. Any suggestions !!!!!

    Have you tried Bostik contact adhesive? I use it for applying fabric to stainless steel flasks and find it re-positionable for about 5 - 10 seconds which is probably all you need?

    Doesn't repositioning an item that is glued onto paper leave a glue smear behind after you move the item though? On my flasks I can remove any smears from repositioning the fabric but you can't really get away with that on paper.

    Pva,(not extra tacky), Collal photo glue, silicone glue...most of them give you at least 15 seconds or so before they become permanent..
