Yesterday I went to a shop at Bras Basah and they recommended me a 3M Super 77 spray can for use as adhesive for my photos.

Went ahead and bought it because the label did see it sticks plastic/papers/etc... but before I use it on my photos on nice albums (from Keepers) anyone has used it before? can offer advice if I shouldn't because it smudges or spoils the photo, or the album or something?

TIA

there's a type of roll-on tape specially for sticking photo. It is acid-free, ie, would edge into the photo as time pass. Most of the adhesive are acidic nature. The tape is sold in The Print shop in Center Point & City Link mall.

hi zul,

i can't comment on the 3m spray, but i usually use photo corners (like rectangular pieces of double-sided tape) which i get from scrapbooking shops... acid-free.

so far so goo, but also not sure what it would look like 10, 20, 50 years down the road?!?!! :)

Actually, I went into the shop asking for good double sided tape that they could recommend and this is what they said is better, me not knowing any better.. so bought it.

Thanks for info, I will using the 3M Spray on some old photos and see if they are passable, if not I will search out this roll-on tape.

Hi Jack,
I got the photo corners when I bought the Keepers album but I think it looks nicer without the corners. May have to experiment it and if it is not good try the roll-on tape ones.

Double-sided tape for me - cheap and strong. The roll-on glue is excellent but just too expensive for me.

sorry zul, i don't think that they are actually called photo corners... i know the ones you are referring to... i use the double-sided type tape - they are dispensed from a box (like the old ring-folder paper protectors), and cut in little 1.5cm x 1cm tabs... will revert this evening with the name of the product.

The ones I had was actually called photo corners product by Nakabayashi Co. Ltd, they are also dispensed from a 2"x2" box just like those used to protect ring folder holes.

Anyway, back on the spray adhesives... I've cut out a template out of old cardboard sized to fit my photos so that I can slot the photo when I have sprayed adhesive onto them. This way all my photos will be at the same position on every page. A friend called me just 2 hours ago and gave me tip to do the spraying outdoors and lay a fresh new layer of paper after every spray, I think it's a good tip.

they are called "photo stickers" by herma. description - "self-adhesive double-sided stickers for the permanent mounting of photos, receipts, cuttings..."

hope this helps.

Thanks Jack, I think double-sided stickers would be the easiest, the spray adhesives means I have to do it out-doors cause it is quite toxic if inhaled.
