What is the difference between sticky tape and glue tape?

Sticky tape comes in a dispenser that unrolls the tape as you pull. Sticky tape has one sticky side, allowing you to press it down early by using your fingers on the non-sticky side.

Glue tape dispenses lines of glue from a roller. As you press the dispenser down and drag it across a surface, it creates a line of sticky glue that you can then cover with something you want to adhere to.

Sticky tape & glue tape FAQs

What is glue tape?

Glue tape is an adhesive that is dispensed via a roller on paper. The glue from a glue tape dispenser comes out in a narrow, straight line and is ideal for papercraft projects like card-making and scrapbooking. Glue tape rollers are small and thin, ideal for keeping in a pencil case.

How does glue tape work?

Adhesive glue tape can be used to bind two materials together. A glue tape roller can be used to quickly create a straight, thin line of glue on your surface. This glue will dry quickly, so make sure to firmly press your paper shape or craft accessory down onto the glue while it is still wet.

How to remove sticky tape residue

It's important to remove tape residue fast, otherwise it can attract dust and dirt. To remove tape residue, try heating it with a hair dryer to soften and lift the residue, which you can then scrape off. You can also cover the tape residue in vegetable oil or rubbing alcohol, cover it for 30 minutes and then wipe it away. Never scrub hard, as you may damage the surface the tape residue is on!
