How to glue paper to glass?

#1 Post by Buck13 » Fri Feb 19, 2021 12:53 pm

I need to print some labels with an office printer and glue them to glass bottles and jars. Any suggestions for glue that's cheap, quick, won't make toner or ballpoint pen bleed much and won't fall off the first time someone picks up the bottle?

This can't be that hard, because beer bottles, but I just don't know the trick...

Clear packing tape.

Yep. Make the labels smaller than the tape so the tape covers the whole paper. Or Sharpie, took off with acetone.

You could also etch it into the glass using Jewish space lasers. Pricey, though.

Rubber cement. Thin layer on the glass. Wait for it to dry. Stick on your paper label.

A spray adhesive. Most are not water soluble and easy to apply. Though they generally smell pretty bad.

Avery Labels. Search their web site for labels. Down load their program, find a printable label that will hold your info. They have adhesive peel backing and stick good. I've used them for years for shipping labels, business cards, stick-ons that are same as my business card. Office stores generally have a great selection of Avery labels.

This is a throwback a few decades, but here goes...

I recall (vaguely) mention of condensed milk being used to glue flyers, notices, etc, to light poles, windows, etc. Used like a runny wallpaper paste, supposedly it is extremely tenacious when dry, requiring removal methods as extreme as steam cleaning or high-temp pressure washers.

If I recall correctly, it was in either Abbie Hoffman's "Steal This Book" or the "Anarchist Cookbook". (It's one of those little facts which may or may not come in handy someday.)

Wallpaper paste. Ever try to take old wallpaper down? That stuff will stay on until the Sum burns out.
