After I received my Silhouette last year I had no idea how to attatch my intricate cut outs that I made to my scrapbook pages without making a huge mess. The lady that works at my lss recommended I get one of these pens to use and I am so thankful!!! It is so easy to use and you can add adhesive to the most thin and intricate areas without getting it everywhere! Even the little tiny dots of your letter "i" can be adhered using tweezers and one of these pens. I love how it goes on blue so you can tell where you have already applied the adhesive, but then dries clear. You also have a little bit of time to move something if you get it in the wrong place because until the adhesive is dry it is removable. I would recommend this over and over again, especially to anyone who has a die cutting machine--you won't be sorry!
I found this little beauty and have NEVER used my xyron sticker maker since! If you have a Cricut, or you are working with small die cuts, this pen is an absolutel MUST for you! No more holding teeny letters with tweezers and running them over a glue stick. This pen makes using those teeny tiny embellishments quick and painless. Simply take the cap off, draw a little line down the back of the letter (or other embellishment) and stick it where you want it. Done and Done! LOVE this product and cannot recommend it enough~ I keep 2 in my back-up stash, but have yet to need to open them. It lasts FOREVER!

I bought this pen because I wanted something better to use to stick my "sugar" glitter on pages. It worked better than I'd hoped. I would suggest a little practice on a scrap-scrap page before using on your LO because it does take a little practice to get the sqeeze/ write part down perfect. The tip is very small and perfect for tiny embellies and glue lines for glitter etc. I plan on always having one is my stash, I wish I would have picked one up sooner. Highly recommended.
I've seen this glue used in many videos on YouTube where I've been researching card-making. I'm just getting started in this relm of crafting and was overwhelmed with all the different glues out there. So, despite my skepticism, I bought this to try out. I am amazed that the tiny, fine line of glue actually holds so strongly! No wrinkles in the paper, either! Even though I just got this home yesterday, I love it so much, that I already ordered two more pens tonight!
Sort of like needing to have garlic in my kitchen to get started cooking, I cannot get started scraping or otherwise crafting without this tiny pointed glue stick. It is really accurate and sticks great AND it is not messy at all. I use it in a fine (and this is possible with the pen shape) line around small objects or just a dab in the center of really small objects. It doesn't get too dry if it sits a bit before placement. All in all a really fine adhesive.
This is a great adhesive. I constantly find myself using this glue pen on small things like strips of paper, letters and ribbon. You just touch the ball of the pen to the surface of whatever you want to glue, squeeze a little and roll. I have never had any problems getting the glue to flow. You can also let the glue dry before you adhere and it becomes repositionable. The fine tip also makes this glue pen good for free hand embossing and glitter. Photo safe.
Absolutely the most awesome little glue pen I have ever used!!!! I can't work without it. It doesn't run out in globs, you control how much and where the glue goes. Makes the tiniest little embellishments a snap to place. I started using this little dandy two years ago and it just ran out. Never dried up or became icky. Lasted forever and believe me I used the life out of it.
I have used Zig writers before so I decided to try this product.
It works really good when you need to work with adhering chipboard letter and you are not sure how you would like them to lay on the page and for apply ribbon. I use skinny ribbon and thats why I like this fine tip pen.
I recommend like the product says for serious scrapbookers ~Get ziggy with it!!!

Love it, allows me to get into the smallest places and dries very quickly. Bought 4 of them and plan to buy more when needed. Have bought more & am now waiting for the big one, looking forward to using it. Ladies, if you have "Essential Tremors" these are a blessing, by them, you will not regret it.
Thank you, Fran Charbeneau-Huddleston
I originally bought the Xyron X Sticker Maker to use for diecuts. I've been using the ZIG glue pen constantly, especially for the tiniest letters and die cuts! It's so easy to use, and I've never had any problems trying to get the glue to come out. I use mine all of the time for scrapbooking and cardmaking. A must-have for papercrafting!

I HAVE HEARD OF THIS BUT NEVER BOUGHT IT BEFORE. i WILL BE BYING MORE VERY SHORTLY AND GETTING TWO AS GIFTS FOR MY SCRAPPING PEND, PERFECT FOR LITTLE TINY ITEMS....WISH i HAD IT BEFORE, FREAS FOR THE THINGS YOU PRINT FROM THE CRICUT THAT ARE TO SMALL FOR ANY OTHER KIND OF GLUE. FANTASTIC PRODUCT.
This has been an essential adhesive for me for dealing with tiny cricut letters. It is perfect for little detail work and I've even used it for buttons and other harder to stick items. I thought that it would be quickly used up, but I've used it for 2 years now and its still going strong!
I use this pen all of the time. It's a litte tricky to use - to squeeze and write/whatever at the same time, but you get used to it. I've used it for embossing because I didn't have any stamp pads at the time -- it worked great!
This is just a great glue to have around for whatever!
I purchased this over the weekend and have already used it several times. I love the small tip and that is goes on blue and dries clear. This is a great way to stick all those small curly letter and detailed cut out. I will use this on most every layout. It is a great find!
I absolutely love this pen! The tip on it makes it so easy to apply the glue on the tiniest letters/diecuts. And, the added bonus for me is that you can let it sit for a few minutes and it turns into a repositionable adhesive. Very cool and I can't live without it!

This glue is a must-have for any acetate words (like Heidi Swapp). It can be applied just where you need it on the very, narrow letters but dries transparent, unlike a glue dot which was my prior way of appling these. It's also awsome for tiny rhinestones and jewels.

I use my Cricut machine for most of my lettering, the problem is that it's hard to glue them on without leaving a mess. These pens leave a very thin line that works perfectly with any size letter I cut! I can never have enough of these pens!!
I love these glue pens. I teach preschool and scrapbook allot. I previously purchased these at Michaels in Joplin, Mo. but since the tornado I Googled and found scrapbook.com. Thanks so much. I will be a repeat customer.
This is the best glue pen I have ever used. It is good to get into tiny spaces that didn't glue down as expected as well as attaching edges and small flowers. I use the bigger glue for photos and cards. Both are wonderful
I got this 2 way glue pen a couple of weeks ago, it's really been a fantastic tool to have! It's perfect for glueing those tiny little letters. I think everyone should keep one of these in their arsenal of supplies.
to adhere tiny lettering to pages if using slice or other diecut machine--limits mess. You won't see youself getting fastened to page with excess glue. Just point, squeeze and bounce. So quick and easy. Kathy
I have used various methods of adhering paper, embellishements and ribbons onto a project. These glue pens work great on all of the above. I would recommend anyone doing paper crafts to keep some on hand.
I haven't opened the 2 glue pens I just rec'd, but if they are like my current ZIG glue pen, they will be worthy of the 5 starts. This pen provides a nice, thin line and is handy for gluing smaller items.
I really like this glue pen. It gets into small places...like those small die cuts...where other adhesives are just too wide. It goes on blue so you can see where you have applied and dries clear.
Thi sglue is great. It dries fast and works perfectly for alphas and items that have alot of detail. Ex: flourishes that were cut on the cricket! I use this on just about every page!
This glue has worked on everything except some grainy glttery paper I used. It is so useful with ribbon and borders that are thin! I will def. order more.
This is a great buy it you glue a lot of small items on your lo's. It goes on blue and dries clear. It's also strong enough for chipboard letters.

Great glue for those thin letters. I also like that it can be re-positionable or permanent depending on how you used it.

This pen is fantastic. Mine has never become clogged and it adheres really well. It makes glueing tiny things a breeze. I only have two complaints about this product.
The first is that you have to have whatever you are applying the glue to down on a surface because the pen needs to roll on something. This is only a problem because I prefer to hold what I am gluing in my hand while I apply the glue.
Thesecond thing which can also be a good thing is that it is not very sticky until it is almost dry. This is great if you want to reposition something, not so good if you require immediate stickiness.
All in all this glue pen is fantastic and is the only glue adhesive that I use.

I love using this pen for small things like letters! Everything sticks well, and I love the option to have it repositionable. My only problem with it is that I cannot get the glue to come out smoothly. Often I have to squeeze and squeeze and try squeezing from different angles until it comes out in a big blob. That can get quite annoying. I'm not sure what causes this, as I always try to keep the tip clean so it doesn't clog. I can deal with it though, and it's not enough of a problem to make me not want to use it.

This fine point, roll-ball glue pen is wonderful for small items/small spaces/or velum items when you don't want a heavy glue presence. It's a little labor-intensive with the squeezing & pressing & rolling, but it is ultimately an awesome product.
In fact, the company (ZIG) has wonderful glue pens for all size projects & needs, I don't know why SB.com doesn't offer all of them!
I really like this glue pen...it came in so handy when I needed to add glue to small items, like my little diecut letters from my sizzix sidekick. I think it is easy to use and I like that I am able to control how much glue comes out.

This adhesive is wonderful for small die-cuts...especially alphas. I've also found it quite effective for heat embossing. I was hesitant at first but i'm glad i bought it. It will no doubt be a staple in my scrap bag :)
I recently used the Zig squeeze glue pen with mixed feelings. The glue itself is fine. It's great for adhering tiny pieces such as die cut letters, punch pieces, etc. I didn't like the fact that I had to squeeze it to get the glue to flow. As the level of glue went down it became harder to squeeze. I want a glue pen that doesn't require a lot of effort to get the glue to come out. This one isn't it.
This glue pen is awesome for sprinkling glitter over, it allows you to journal free-hand style and then dash with glitter for a really cool effect. DONT shake it though, it tends to get a bit bubbly and will skip as you are writing with it. As far as attaching other embellies, i prefer another adhesive.
I'm just not crazy about this glue pen. It has a roller ball that doesn't really roll and when you press down it leaves an imprint on your paper, you have to squeeze the tube to get the glue out and it's always too much. I will find something else that works better for my needs. The glue is good and holds firmly, but it you get some extra on your design and it leaves a shiny residue. Not happy with this product, but it wasn't expensive, so it's not a major loss.
I am not impressed with the pen. The glue is great but having to squeeze the pen while applying is a pain. Plus the tip clogs up and doesn't allow the glue to come out when needed. I do like the amount it allows out when it does work but maybe another company has a better glue pen.
I bought all the zig glue pens, and I have not been that happy with them. It is hard to squeeze and I find that when I apply them to my pages the glue does not permanently afix to the page itself.
This glue pen takes too much effort. Way more than it is worth. Squeeze and roll---NOT!!! IT is dab dab dab (to get glue started) then squeeze forever then dab, dab, dab again. Once you get the glue where you want it, it works pretty well. I am unsatisfied with this product.
