Glue Dots International | GlueDot Cold Adhesive Products

Binding101 is proud to offer Glue Dots® -- where the brand name matches the product. They are a leader in the adhesive industry and produce some of the highest quality cold glues and adhesive for marketing, mailing, and packaging. Glue Dots adhesives are available for a variety of applications including smaller uses, (such as crafts, home improvement projects, and office uses) and industrial uses (for packaging and shipping needs). Glue Dots are a popular item for nearly all applications where it is necessary to attached two items together.

Why Buy Glue Dots? Glue Dots are most commonly used as a replacement for hot glue adhesives, such as "booger glue". Booger Glue leaves paper and other light substrates with a wet stain after being removed. The intense heat as the glue is applied can morph the substrate, creating unattractive waves and dents. Switching to Glue Dots will eliminate these problems. Another advantage to glue dots is that they do not need heat to be applied, eliminating the need for a hot glue gun. While dispensers for Glue Dots are available, they are not required for use.

Glue dots come in several application techniques...

Dot Shot Pro Handheld Glue Runners

Hobby / Dot N' Go - a handheld flue runner style applicator, most commonly used in crafting and general around-the-home and store use.

Previously called Dot N' Go, these hobby Glue Dots® dispensers offer a fast and easy solution to adhere paper and other items to each other. The convenient adhesive runner design is comfortable to hold and will apply dots of glue as you roll it along. The row of dots offers instant bonding and requires no drying time. Place a single dot, or roll it to apply multiple dots in a row.
