I have used Elmer's Rubber Cement for over 40 years for professional and personal use. My two main uses are (1) for attaching paper to other surfaces -- especially as a dry-mount -- to give a clean professional look, and (2) for attaching a business card to letters and such -- using a couple of small "dabs" (put some glue in a small "squirt-tip" bottle to make it really easy!). The card will not get lost and not noticed (because it fell somewhere in the envelope), and it can easily be removed by the customer. The little bit of glue on the back of it can easily be rubbed off by the customer.

I would like to see easy-to-use rubber cement thinner available in relatively small "consumer" amounts so that the once-in-a-while user will not end up with a bottle having a lot of dried-up cement.

I would also like to have the stuff available in small capped-tip plastic squirt bottles so small dabs can be easily applied without your fingers getting rubber cement on them.

I love rubber cement! It is clean and economical. As with any product, it must be used for appropriate applications.

I have a lot of projects to make for school and I thought using the rubber cement would be a lot more effective than just regular glue, but found it to be just as much of a heartache as regular white glue. There are very few things that this rubber cement will hold up on. I found that if I need to attach small items like beads, then this glue will work, but if I have to bond things like poster board or foam, this just does not work all that well. It can also start to make a mess, especially if begins to build up on the brush. I would use hot glue and put up with the extra mess if it means that my projects can get finished.

Best All Around Glue

By Michael

from Andover

Verified Buyer

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

This product never fails to perform. For photo mounting on foam board, it's easy to use as a permanent or temporary adhesive. No other glue gives you that option.

Perfectionist's Dream Glue

By Rosie

from Chicago

Verified Buyer

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

This year marks my forty year high school graduation and the remarkable thing that stems from that anniversary is that I have been using Elmer's Rubber Cement for all of my art projects starting in my freshman year of high school. The math tells me that somewhere forty-four years ago, I discovered that this glue allowed me to create collages, posters, booklets, and papers (pre-graphic abilities of computer technology and post) that were clean, precise, and stable. I passed this perfectionist's dream fixative on to my two graduate school and college age children, as well, who knew since kindergarten to use this only for A+ art projects. Thank you for this paper friendly adhesive.

Rubber Cement at Staples

By Jungle Jim

from Traverse City area of northern Michigan

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

This stuff is great! Any excess cement rubs right off to make your job nice and neat.

The jar is small enough that what is left over does not go bad before you finish the bottle.

Too bad that Staples stores do not stock the bigger cans for frequent users.

Comments about Borden Elmer's Rubber Cement:

We use this rubber cement to make posters for presentations. It's the best glue -- it doesn't wrinkle the paper and is easy to clean up, once dried. Wonderful product!
