What kinds of glue sticks can I find at Spotlight?

Crafter's Choice and UHU glue sticks are loved for their reliability and ease of use, so you know they'll get the job done when you need them.

Classic clear glue sticks are the most common kind of glue stick you'll find. They go on clear and dry clear. 'Magic' glue sticks go on as a colour, like blue or purple, then dry clear. They allow you to see where you have glued much easier than a clear glue stick.

All our glue sticks have a cap and a screw bottom that allows you to raise the glue stick as you run it down.

Glue stick FAQs

What is a glue stick made of?

The glue in a glue stick is made from ingredients that include agents that help the glue go on smoothly, keep the glue flexible when dry and allow the glue to solidify and dry after application.

What should I not use a glue stick for?

Glue sticks do not create a very strong bond, so should only be used for adhering basic craft supplies and not be used to bind anything heavier than paper. Fabrics and clothes, natural materials like wood and stone and heavy cards and cardboard are all too thick and heavy for glue sticks to hold in place. Because they are water-based, glue sticks will not work on oily surfaces either.

Is glue stick glue permanent?

Because they are designed for school use, most glue sticks do not offer as permanent a bond as some other glues, like super glue. The glue from a glue stick is washable, meaning it can be easily washed out of clothes and off skin when needed. Paper projects made using glue sticks will stay in place, but the bond isn't very strong so elements can be removed easily with a bit of force.
