Hi guys!

Would you please tell me which special adhesive would act as a double-stick tape? It must be invisible and not too sticky so the cards could separate easily. Thanks for the info!

Products have different names/brands in different places. Where are you?
And how do you plan to separate the cards after they're together?

Maybe the 3M post-it adhesive, a dot of blue-tac ...or a photo-mount dot.
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Thanks Jonathan,

Yes, a 3M post-it adhesive would certainly work

Scotch makes an adhiesive that is advertized as permanent but is NOT. It works like post-it adheiesive. I use it on cards that need to stick together and can still be taken appart with ease. It is not a tape. It rolls on. It comes in a plastic , almost teardrop shaped container, about two and a half inches long and about half an inch deep. The container is red and white plastic. The width varies due to the shape, It leaves no residue and can be used instantly. It can be used and reused many times before you need to apply a new "sticky" area. It is inexpensive. Walmart carries it. You should also be able to find it at stores that cary office and school supplies. Sorry I don't know the name. I love the stuff.

This is Scotch permanent double sided roller tape. Great stuff for quickly assembling gaffs but does not truly meet the OP request for invisibility. The pattern of glue dots it leaves on a surface is easily detected by the eye.

Kaliix,

I bought mine at either Walmart or JoAnns and mine dries clear - even states dries clear on back label (I use it on color jokers ala NFW) Mine came in a different color bottle though. I doubt that makes a difference.

As for sprays, I just found in the last month or so at JoAnns a spray called "Aleene's REPOSITIONAL Tacky Spray" According to back label - Restick over and over, dries clear and leaves no residue. **I have not used any yet but I have no reason to doubt it is true based on other Aleenes products that I have used** https://www.joann.com/aleene-repositiona......389.html

3M spray mount is what I used back in the day. Not sure if it’s still branded as such, but it worked great.

Zig two-way glue. Apply and let it DRY before coming into contact with anything.
If you apply and then stick something to it when still wet it's a more permanent bond -- hence the "two way" in the name.

Zig is great stuff for some effects. I’ve only seen it in a pen and it applies a thick layer that can only pass a quick look if it completely fills in a dark area of the card.
I use it for a routine by Richard Sanders to make practice copies of the packet.

I had great results with 3M Re Mount.
You can easily make a "mask" with a sheet of paper and spray the re-positionable adhesive in whatever shape of form you like. After a bit of experiments, you will find precisely the level of "stickyness" you can get.
