I love this pen! I purchased this and the Kuretake Envelope Template, and I've
had a blast. I made envelopes from maps and magazine pages. It takes very little
ink. After two very wet, sticky tries, I discovered that dotting the glue
instead of writing a line works best. I have to be careful, the glue sticks
extremely well. If I use too much and it squishes out from the side, my fingers
can stick together (not as bad as with superglue, but it's far glue-ier than a
glue stick or elmars glue).
Oh! The glue comes out blue and dries clear. It's really great. I only had one
mishap and that was the first time I used it on a cheap tourist map. I used too
much glue and when it squished out the sides, the cheap map ink smeared. Like I
said, it worked on thicker map paper and it worked on thin magazine paper. I
also used it to seal some envelopes because I don't like them, and I couldn't
find my glue stick.
I will buy a new one when this one runs low. I just hope I don't forget to take
it out of my pen case when I travel! I'd hate for it to be confiscated.
This thing is awesome. I use it with the Kuretake envelope template and they're
a dream together. You have great control over how much glue you put down and it
really doesn't throw any fits. It happily glues most paper with only a second or
two of pressing to let it settle in and then it STAYS. I've used it to glue tiny
envelopes made from thick, glossy, glittery cardstock and all it asks for is
some more time with pressure applied. Once that was done, it stayed. I'm back on
this page to grab another one, because making things has been so quick and easy
I'm sure I'm going to go through it soon. This makes my Zig glue pen look like a
