The ladies at the Salvation Army "Owl be Scrappin' " group in Orlando took on the challenge of reviewing the Zig Glue Pen. The glue pen is a well designed ball point pen that delivers a safe glue for small pieces for scrap book projects. Being acid free and photo safe is very important. The pen is comfortable to hold and works very much like a regular ball point pen. If it sets too long it often starts to dry around the ball. However lightly pouncing, (tapping the tip on scrap paper) breaks away the dry glue and allows the glue to flow again. The glue dries relatively quickly and is prepositional for just a few seconds.
However its use excels for crafters using the Cricut cutting system. The cutter is able to cut small fine pieces, similar to laser cuts, but finding a glue to adhere the pieces is difficult. The Zig Pen easily applies glue to these small pieces and allows clean application.
The cap seals the pen and allows easy storage for future use. This product needs to be in your must haves in your crafter's tool box.
