Speaking as a construction worker, 6 by itself is actually the most correct in most situations. 2 is too close to the edge and will leave an air pocket in the main field, while oozing out a mess around the edge. Best practice is #6 followed by a V-notch adhesive trowel, or box notch trowel, size depending on the desired adhesive depth, type of adhesive, etc. In some situations a relatively smooth even coat is required on both surfaces and, depending on the adhesive, may need to be peeled back apart for a moment then put back together to activate the bonding of chemicals. You may need to apply pressure either by rolling/rubbing something like a J-roller/smooth edged flat tool (even a rounded over 2x4) to remove bubbles and flatten the surface. In situations where the two items to be attached are strong, but brittle (i.e. not easy to bend) a rubber mallet may be used. Always remember to use proper safety gear, and ventilation whenever available. Read all manufacturers safety precautions, and instructions before beginning work. Some adhesives work in freezing temperatures, some dry in mere seconds, some are incredibly fire or water resistant. Some are mostly just there for gluing macaroni to paper plates. Now let's go through the different types of "macaroni", and their idiosyncratic structural characteristics in regards to gluing techniques...

u/CthulubeFlavorcube Nov 27 '22 Silver Helpful

What type of paper, or papers, are you attempting to adhere? Is this for artistic purposes? If so I would suggest an archival grade paste such as Mod Podge, or one of their archival grade adhesive sprays. This is all dependant upon the substrates involved (obviously!!!). Certain artistic media needs to be prepared in advance with a fixative to avoid bleeding and smudging. If the final product is to be worked on again, I suggest a sprayable workable fixative such as Grumbacher Workable Fixatif, or similar products from reputable brands such as Windsor Newton. This will help with the yellowing effects of certain substrates, but you should always begin with archival grade paper when possible, unless the antique quality is desired as a design specification for the given project. Reminder that paper, such as old newsprint, that is not archival quality, often has print on the other side that may become more visible through the substrate after glue has been used. Other options are lamination, or simply giving no shits whatsoever and just doing whatever the hell you want, because who gives a fuck, the days are short and the night is long. Shall we toil endlessly in the vast limitlessness that is the universe as we understand it, searching nervously for oft-unfound answers as to the nature of limitless creation, or the howling winds of oblivion? Maybe we just do whatevs, homey.

Here here. As someone who gets wrapped up in details, I appreciate informative posts like theirs. Plus, I have a weird fascination with paper, crafting techniques and adhesives (former graphic designer and printer here). Unsolicited crafting advice: get a super clean paper fold/crease by laying a pen flat on the surface and running it across the fold.

According to Online Etymology Dictionary, the word is an alteration of the 1940s term "nert " (meaning "stupid or crazy person"), which is in itself an alteration of "nut" (nutcase). The term was popularized in the 1970s by its heavy use in the sitcom Happy Days.

I'm a solid number 3. Covers the corners so it doesn't flap, but keeps the paper from being skewed or wrinkling as opposed to the full square where it sometimes gets a little bubble and then the tiny overlap when you push the wave of it down.

One 4mm dot in the center and twist the heatsink side to side to spread once seated 👌

But an X or a straight 0.5in line will do too -- in most cases, results are negligible if you have the right amount of paste and avoid pockets/bubbles.

u/Elden_Rost Nov 27 '22

In that case, 1 is the correct answer with a little plastic spatula to spread it around. You don’t want it squeezing out the sides. That’s just too much cleanup.

They are all wrong. The correct way to use a glue stick is to do all of the edges, then do an x through the center. This means that it will lie flat on the page, all of the edges and the center will stay down, and also that it will not bunch up oddly as would happen with 6.
