I had gotten a tube from Amazon and when I opened it it was dried out. Was worried about how this one would be. It is okay, but it may not last as long as it should, so there may be some of it that dried up. I bought some of the new Allene tacky glue that others have suggested to try as well. Other than that, this really is a great glue for keeping the papers in place while you cut, and so easy to just wipe off with a wet wipe.
