Best Test is the best!
from Chino CA
Comments about Best-Test Acid-Free Paper Cement:
The reason I choose Best Test Rubber Cement is that it is the most effective rubber cement on the market. If you use a light coat on one surface of the item to adhere, you can later remove it without damage to the original. If you put a light coat on the item and on the surface to stick to, let both dry, it is light using a super glue (on paper surface).I have used Best Test Rubber Cement for longer than I would admit. Try it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This Really Is The Stuff
from Brooklyn, NY
I do printmaking in sizes from 4x6 to 6x12. For this I use a variety of papers from Speedball block printing, Japanese papers especially mulberry bark as well as cotton rag and other fiber mixes from a variety of manufacturers in europe and the US. I use mostly embossing powder but also a variety of inks both water and oil based as the media that I press into the paper substrate.I have been doing this for 14 months and made at least two thousand prints of various levels of quality. I tried some glues at first but almost immediately started using this and use have used it exclusively since then. This is because I make my artworks out of archival quality materials wherever I can.This is not stuff to use in a poorly ventillated room and it has to be applied to every square inch of both surfaces in a nice thin coat. Be wary of those edges. You think you are getting every millemeter but aren't.I still use that stupid brush that comes in the smaller can because it isn't really so stupid. Don't throw away that small can with the brush in the top, you are going to want to keep that.I keep my cans stored in a cool dry place and I'm careful to shake both before I refill the smaller cans from the larger cans. I also turn the cans every few months so that they won't settle on the bottom and am pleased that I'm able to use mine without having to resort to thinner. It really should ideally be of the same density throughout the storage container for best results.I remember this stuff from my childhood so I admit to having a great deal of affection for this stuff as well as taking a great deal of pleasure from something so enduring and simple and effective.

"super" glue for paper
from Troy WV
I learned to use rubber cement when you did paste ups for publications, before the computer era. In this day of scrapbooking and journaling, there is nothing better than rubber cement for a nice looking presentation on paper! You can clean up excess easily, with a rubber cement eraser, and it is easy to use. There are tricks to it that obviously are not being taught in this era of glue sticks...but for many things, rubber cement is far superior in holding ability and accuracy!
