This is such a great tool! I wasn't sure I would use it much but I find myself using it on almost every project now and am going to order a few more so I always have one on hand. The only thing I didn't like was that the instructions on the tool itself are not very clear. When you first receive your stick -DO NOT TRY AND TWIST CAP OFF - it pulls off. I ended up wasting quite a bit of the "sticky stuff" just trying to get the silly cap off). Also, store and use your stick without the clear tool end (it pulls out) this prevents the "sticky stuff" from coming out by accident or when you don't want it to.
This is the most clever device to help with the smallest of items for my scrapbooking and cardmaking. This is extremely helpful when I am working with rhinestones. I have long thick nails and accidentaly dropped many rhinestones and had them all picked up in no time with the help of the 'sticky' end. The fact that this is more than a quick-picker-upper, the other end of stick, you have a flat tip scrapper (this helped me to remove thin stickers from it's packaging) and a very sharp tool to pierce or get into the tinest of places. I use the Quickstik everyday and have told several people about how helpful this is in every day life. You get a lot for the money you pay for this.
This tool is like having a third hand! I didn't realize that it's really 3 tools in one: sticky point to pick up small embellies and pieces; pointy end to poke out small pieces and corners of die-cuts; and flat part to hold items steady for placement. the end opposite of the sticky point has the other 2 tools. It pulls out, and I use it frequently to hold things and to poke out die-cuts that didn't cut all the way. I love it! No more torn corners because a punch didn't punch all the way through, and no more struggling with adhering tiny pieces.

This is one of those things I delayed in purchasing because I didn't think I really needed it. Once I got it I wondered what I did without it! The tacky end is so good at picking up little bitty things, nothing else works as well! The tool end is flat and hard so it will lift the corner of things easily.
I use the tacky end to hold letters and dies while I dab liquid adhesive on the back. You can cover the whole surface, which you can't do with tweezers. Great tool!

This is a negative review for the QuickStik. I was expecting more than this product delivers.
I was excited about the item and thus was willing to pay the shipping costs which was about as much as the product. Therefore:
A) It can be hard to get it to even pick something up.
B) The green 'pick up adhesive" is constantly oozing out.
C) When it does pick something up, you have to use some other tool to hold your embellishment down while you are pulling the QuickStik away.
This separate tool of some sort is critical. The QuickStik only performs HALF the job you need when applying embellishments to your project. It needs to leave the embellishment behind on your project somehow. Tweezers and fingers can do the job but they are awkward and clumsy.
D) This problem should be emphasized in the product description or a separate tool should be included.
E) Remember: If you do purchase this item be aware that it only performs HALF THE JOB needed when applying items onto on your project.
END NOTE: As you need a second tool to get everything to work, it's not worth it to buy this. Come up with your own ideas like the tweezers.
I bought two of these tools; I already had one! As anyone who has arthritis in the hands knows how difficult is can be to work with tiny items. This tool helps immensely, particularly if one also uses a set of tweezers in the other hands. The QuickStik has a sticky end with which I can grab a small/tiny die cut, sequin, beads, etc - that's a terrific help for everyone!
I purchased three of these. Two were for my sisters-in-law. we are all three in our late 60 early 70s and sometimes can't quite manage the delicate little things. This tool makes it real simple to pick up and place small, small items like the dot of the I. Wonderful, would recommend to all my friends.
I love rhinestones but i hate having to try and pick the tiny ones up, get glue on it, and stick it down b/c i can't see beneath my finger. This picks them up easily allows me to dip them in a drop of glue i have on some vellum and then place them exactly where I want them.
The only problem i have (whcih is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5) is that it doesn't 'release' easily if you dont have enough of yoru embellishment to hold down in place.
I work with very tiny rhinestones and had a bit of a problem getting them to stay down b/c i couldn't hold the stone down and use the stick. but for larger than .3 mm objects it will work great. And if any of the tacky stuff gets left on it scraps right off with the other end of the stick.
I love the utility of this tool. I use the hard flat side for pulling small pieces off my Cricut and for lifting the corners of things. The sticky side is great also because it does let you easily pick up those small little embellies better than the tweezers. The price is great too. My only complaint about this product is that the sticky will seep out if you accidentally bump its cap and then suddenly the sticky stuff is in the top of the cap and you need to buy a new one. It would seem to me that quality control could easily rectify this problem. If this were fixed, I would definitely give 5 stars.

What did I do without it? If you work with die-cut alphas and small embellishments, this is a must have tool.
Just be sure not to move the sticky end's plastic covering unless you need to or you end up using too much of the sticky stuff - I noticed that my tool kept getting bumped somehow and so the sticky end was used before I knew it. Otherwise, I love mine.
I'm adding a review because no one has mentioned the one thing that absolutely sold me on this tool. The non-sticky end is kind of like a small plastic flat-head screwdriver. This end is PERFECT for picking up adhesive-backed rhinestones, the kind that come in a strip. You put that sharp plastic end down between two connected rhinestones, flick your wrist, and the one on the end will disconnect from the string and is now on your tool, ready for placement. You put it wherever you want, and voila, you have now put a rhinestone down without using tweezers or your fingernails. If you like bling, like me, and a lot of your bling comes in strips, this tool is a must!
If you make cards or scrapbook, or any other craft where you may deal with small parts, this is a fabulous tool to make the job easier. You no longer have to struggle with picking up small things. This tool has a very low-tack clay-like substance that picks up your item for placement without leaving any residue at all. It's great for rhinestones, papers that stick together, or any small embellishment that may be difficult to work with. Give it a try! Everyone in my cardmaking group bought one with zero complaints.
This is one of the most useful little rigs you will ever buy... it's the one tool that you always wanted but didn't know existed. Very basically simple in design but does the work of tweezers, toothpicks, or paper piercers. It's the extra small fingers you always wish for when working with sticky glue small paper piecing.. don't just order one, be safe and get 2 just in case you misplace one. Once you use it, you will never want to scrap without it again!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! My best friend has one and I finally remembered to ask her where I could find one, so I did a google search and your site showed up and I thought cool because I have your site as one of my favorites. Anyway, I tried to order one and of course you were out so I had to wait until I received an email, I did and I was so excited, I placed my order right then and there, lol. It picks up the littlest item when I am making my cards
This tool is a brilliant idea and a must-have for us crafters. All those tiny objects I have tried to pick up from my working area only to have them drop down again- it was driving me slightly crazy.- Now with this tool it's a breeze. It takes a bit getting used to, but once I got the hang of things my crafting became a lot easier.
It's a good purchase, you won't regret the "investment"
I have these and they are my 3rd and 4th hands. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have it. But then it makes me think what did I do before I had it. I know this might sound a little dirty but to be able for me to pick up my sparking confete I had to lick my finger. Now that I have it I think I work my projects a whole lot better. I just think it is worth every penny.
I should have bought one for every room in my house, to keep in my purse and to keep in my car!!
Okay, I exaggerate, but this thing is awesome! There is absolutely NO learning curve and I started using it instantly. For a person with any kind of issue which makes it difficult if not impossible to work with small embellishments, this is a MUST HAVE ITEM!!
...just as the name says....quickstic ( Quickpick ) great tool for card making and scrapbooking! Having arthritis, it's so hard to pick up very small objects, but not any more with the Quickstic. Of course, you don't have to have arthritis to use it, it's a super great tool for anyone!!!...Lettie
I went to a crop today. The gals sitting next to me had the quickstik. What an awesome little tool that it is. It is easier to use than ta tweezer. This handy dandy little gadget picks up the tiniest pieces and gives you complete control of placement.
This one is going in the cropping bag.
I love this tool. Not only does it help you to pick up and place those teeny-tiny dots for the "I's" you cut with your Cricut, it also helps you poke out the little cut-outs. I love the sticky end for grabbing small embellishments. I would receommend this to any scrapbooker.
This is a fantastic product!! It picks up tiny pieces, especially the small letters and tiny dots; I love the end tool that holds them in place while you're trying to glue them down. It works great for beads, too! Keeps your fingers from getting all sticky!
This multi-tasking tool has become essential at my home. Would highly recommend it for anyone who glues a lot of little pieces on projects and they don't like to get glue all over their fingers. It is also great for getting small pieces out of die cuts.
This is an amazing handy tool. I use this for all my die cutting and small embellishment work. The sticky tack has the perfect amount of hold but leaves no residue behind. The other end has two different pints for maneuvering around the die cuts.
This is perfect for picking up small pieces of paper or light items. I have found this tool is great for placing small letters into my Xyron. The other end is great for scrapping excess glue away from your project. Highly recommended!
This little three-way working tool actually makes picking and placing small scrapbooking and other elements an easy case. It is really handy and works perfectly once one have read the use instructions carefully. Highly recommended!!!
How did I manage without this one? ......so helpful when placing those tiny embellies! ........and makes placing preadhesive gems a snap! just "scoop" it off the cello and place! It really is that easy! ........A must have IMO!

I saw this tool being used in a demo and just had to have one. I tried it out as soon as I got it and I love it!!!! I even told my friends they should get one. We just wish we could find them in a local craft store!
This is a must have tool for those working with die cuts. There is an end that is just perfect for poking the paper out of the die, and the sticky end is made just for picking up and placing the little die cuts.
This is so wonderful. It works great when you need to put small pieces on your cards or scrapbooking pages. Even use it for big piece!!. You can place with the upmost accuracy. Buy it you will love it.
I had never seen anything that would transfer tiny pearls to hot glue without flipping the bead either across the room or upside down. The Quicstic works beautifully. Every crafter should have one.
love this tool and would highly recommend it....also your
company was great to deal with and shipment was vey
quick.....thanks so much and I look forward to placing
a future order with your company
I can not believe how easy it is too pick up those tiny pieces with this Quickstik Scrapbook tool. It makes making cards and scrapbooking so easy when putting together embellishments.
THIS IS THE BEST TOOL EVER. IF YOU SCRAPBOOK YOU NEED ONE. I LOOKED IN EVERY STORE IN TOWN TO FIND ONE AND NOBODY HAD IT.I WENT ON LINE AND FOUND IT AT SCRAPBOOK.COM. IT WORKS GREAT
I absolutely love the QuickStik. It's perfect for picking up little embellishments and moving them around. Love, love, love it! Thanks scrapbook.com for the fast delivery!!!
Love this product!!! I use a lot of tiny pieces that are by- products of my punches and this tool makes it so easy to pick up and place these little pieces. Thanks!
This has been very handy for me...I actually have had it in my tool box for several years and never really knew that I NEEDED it until recently. I have LONG finger nails and as a paper crafter and Stamper you "KNOW" what a challenge this is. This handy tool really helps me out. The "sticky" top portion is the best. It really "hangs" on to tiny pieces of paper/or other Bling to be glued and placed into position. Much better than tweezers. Also the other side pulls completely out and one side is kinda like a flat head to a screwdriver to be used as a "scraper" and the other side is a sharp point. I have used this to unclog glue tips and I have even used it as a temporary Paper Piercer. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is because this is a "disposable" item. Once the "Sticky" runs out or dries up it needs to be discarded and replaced.
This is a great store, wish I lived in Mesa and could see what else in the store. There are alot of things I don;t know how to use or what they are for, but always looking for something different. I watch U-Tube quit a bit, but at times they fail to say where they got the products from. One thing I am looking for is this double sided tape for making cards and its on a huge roll, not these little ones you buy at JoAnn Fabrics that last for several cards. This larger roll was more reasonable, but can't find where they get some of these supplies. I live in St. Paul, MN and most of our stores have empty shelves, so basically one is forced to order on line somewhere. Its really to bad.
The QuickStik works well to pick up small items like sequins, beads, and diecuts. The two-ended poky tool that that stores in the barrel is very useful for poking holes and lifting up things like masks as well as holding down items down after placing them with the QuickStik.
The reason I gave this tool 4 stars instead of five is that the threading on my QucikStick keeps coming loose every time I take on or off the lid. The end has to be screwed in just right; the 'goop' comes out if it is too tight and falls out if it's too loose. A secondary washer would help keep the end on tight without too much 'goop' coming out, but I haven't found one that fits yet.
Handy little tool working with little pieces, the only draw back is when working with white objects I have found that the substance used in this tool will some times leave a slight green tint behind. As this pen or tool is filled with a greenish substance that in time will get used up and tool I would assume have to be disposed of as I have not seen a way to refill it or refills available for it, so it is a one time purchase and then one must throw it away and buy another one. But it does appear that it will last for some time.
I do like it though and will buy another one when mine runs out.
This is a wonderful gadget. I like how it picks up little things and then lets me place them perfectly. I didn't give it 5 stars because of how the sticky end won't stay tight, and when I tighten it, even just a little to get it not to wobble, too much sticky comes out. When it arrived in the mail a bunch had already oozed out. This doesn't keep me from recommending it however. Using this tool is better than licking my finger!
This tool was a neat idea. I love using it for rhinestones and little things that are hard to pick up with a tweezer. Over time I noticed that the sticky stuff sort of poured out of the tip. I am not sure if I stored it upside down, but now I make sure its stored upright.
I have only used this tool once so far but I know it will be getting a huge work out when I have time to create cards. Really impressed.
It is probably user error, especially after reading the reviews. But when I received my tool and tried to open it, it was a mystery as to whether to pull or turn. Pulling didn't do much so I turned the tip - bad move, because that advanced the sticky tip. I pulled really hard again and again, and finally got it open. The tip that advanced when I turned it won't retract, so it is wasted. It broke off when I tried to use it.
Fortunately (I guess), I'd bought two of them. So now I'll know to pull the top off and try not to turn the tip at all. We'll see how it works.
This tool is a must for anyone who wants to pick up gemstones. I used my so much the top finally curved too much and I could not use it anymore. I have been struggling using my fingers to pick up gemstones. Not very effective.
Can you help me understand how the glue emerges from the pen. The directions are not clear and directing me to allow the glue to escape and not retract. Advice would be appreciated. Also, how do you refill this?
