Re: [BKARTS] glue

Thanks for the idea about using transfer tape. It should work fine for
straight-edged labels. Some of the labels I'll be attaching will be made
from handmade paper with bits of leaves, etc. sticking out, and I will try
out some of the other adhesives people discussed to see how they work with
my paper. Funny thing, every time I think , "oh, this is a simple little
problem that won't take much time to figure out," it turns into a long
research process. Sure don't have to worry about being bored....

I love transfer tape for labels--so quick and easy and I've had no trouble with warping--but perhaps there are considerations I'm not aware of? Can anyone speak to the benefit of method 2 over method 1?

I like Don Rash's second method a lot, especially if your problem is too
much moisture. If your substrate can't take ironing, or if the surface
be too rough for a good ironing you could combine his second and third
methods by sizing the side of the paper that will be adhered with
PVA, allowing it to dry on its own, ironing it flat (if it curled too
much)using a Teflon sheet to protect your ironing surface, and then
adhering it the label to the substrate with more PVA.
