Video - How to Use (& Fix!) Stampin' SEAL

Are you struggling with the new Stampin' SEAL applicators? I know I had a bit of a hard time with them at first but I have found some tips and tricks that have made it very easy to use. Today I have posted a video on my YouTube channel that shares some information about why Stampin' SEAL is actually better than Snail Adhesive (gasp), how to use it with ease and even how to fix it if you get in a jam. 

Below you can watch the video to see all of the details...

  • Stampin’ SEAL is an everyday adhesive that bonds instantly and neatly, like SNAIL
  • Stampin’ SEAL was designed to have improved strength over SNAIL
  • Stampin’ SEAL+ is a super-strength adhesive that bonds instantly and neatly, similar to Fast Fuse. It is perfect for heavier layers or small 3D items.
  • Stampin’ SEAL+ is perforated for easy separation after laydown Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+
  • Case can be used interchangeably for both Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+
  • SEAL is an acronym for “Simple Easy Adhesive Laydown”
Stampin’ SEAL or Stampin’ SEAL+ Troubleshooting
  • The tip of the adhesive runner should be in a flat position against the paper; avoid using it on an angle.
  • Once the laydown of the adhesive is complete, stop and pull the adhesive straight up. Avoid pulling the adhesive back to separate it from the paper.
  • If the adhesive won’t advance and the trail breaks off, add slight pressure to get it rolling again. You may need to use your finger to advance the adhesive. You can also roll the tip along the adhesive you have already laid down to roll it forward or roll against a Silicone Craft Sheet to get it started.
  • Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ create a strong adhesive bond. When using more fibrous papers, paper tearing may occur. If the paper tears and rolls into the adhesive, it will not ruin your adhesive roll. Stop and adjust your location and angle before proceeding with a slow and lightly controlled stroke.
  • Similar to what you may have experienced with SNAIL or Fast Fuse, it is possible for Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ to roll back on itself or jam. This can happen with any roller adhesive. If it occurs, we recommend stopping the adhesive laydown and adjusting the roll manually before proceeding. Using slow and controlled strokes is advised.
