Advice for stickers not sticking

So I decided to try and start decorating postcards I send out with some stickers, but I quickly noticed that the adhesive isn’t that strong. Recently I ended up taping a sticker just to keep it on an envelope. Does anybody else deal with this? Any advice? It’s pretty discouraging when all i want to do is add a little decoration :pensive:

As far as I know all my stickers have stuck. But I have started making cards and am using a glue pen with a tiny tip to get all the fussy bits. Lots of companies make them, and you don’t have to worry whether the glue is photosafe. Have fun decorating!

Glue sticks for reenforcement. Or buy more expensive stickers, that should make a difference, too.


thank you :))

Sometimes the finish on the postcard or envelope is the problem. I had some pearlescent cards and envelopes that nothing would stick to. I just avoid paper with that finish from now on.


Scrapbook glue tape works nicely :slight_smile:
