Printing & Mailing Adhesives

An Alternative to Wafer Seals

Glue Dots® are a US Postal Service-compliant adhesive for mailings, making them an ideal alternative to wafer seals. Unlike wafer seals, Glue Dots won’t cover up your creative layout, protecting your brand and imagery. They are strong enough to secure a mailer but make it easy for customers to open, without leaving a residue.

Use Glue Dots' printing and mailing adhesives to:

  • Attach promotional items or gift cards
  • Adhere accents
  • Tipping and affixing
  • Brochure closures


Glue Dots are: 

  •  Faster and safe than hot glues
  • Cleaner than liquid adhesives and double-sided tapes
  • No mess. No residue. No odor.
  • Non-toxic
  • Available in FDA compliant formulas
