Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Seal+

Q: How do Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ compare with SNAIL/Fast Fuse?

A: Stampin’ SEAL

  • Stampin’ SEAL is an everyday adhesive that bonds instantly and neatly, like SNAIL

  • Stampin’ SEAL was designed to have improved strength over SNAIL

   Stampin’ SEAL+

  • Stampin’ SEAL+ is a super-strength adhesive that bonds instantly and neatly, similar to Fast Fuse.

  • It is perfect for heavier layers or small 3D items.

  • Stampin’ SEAL+ is perforated for easy separation after laydown

  Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+

  • Exclusive case

  • Case can be used interchangeably for both Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+

  • Includes 16.4 yds. (15 m) adhesive vs. 13.1 yds. (12 m) with SNAIL Adhesive

  • No “checkmark” hand movement required for release of adhesive

  • Re-sealable pouch packaging for storage and to protect it when stored in a bag or tote

  • Refillable cartridges

Q: Where can I see how Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ compare with other Stampin’ Up! adhesives?

 A: You may refer to the adhesives chart in the Print Lab and in DBWS.


Q:  How should we recycle old SNAIL cases and cartridges?

A:  As demonstrators and customers transition from SNAIL to Stampin’ SEAL, we recommend that they use up their cartridge supply and recycle their cases just as they always have.

Q: Why do I need a Stampin’ SEAL if I have Stampin’ SEAL+? Do I need to buy both?

A: Stampin’ SEAL is less expensive and is designed for everyday use. Stampin’ SEAL+ has a stronger bond which works well with 3D and heavier projects.

Q: Will SNAIL/Fast Fuse refills fit into the new Stampin’ SEAL/Stampin’ SEAL+ adhesive cases?

A: No, they do not.


Q: Do Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ have the same case?

A: Yes. They can be used interchangeably if desired.

Q: Are Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ permanent adhesives?

A:  Yes.


Q: Can you move embellishments or paper once they have been adhered to your project with Stampin’ SEAL or Stampin’ SEAL+?

A: Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ are non-repositionable adhesives. We recommend against moving embellishments or paper once you have adhered them to your project.

Q: Is SEAL an acronym?

A: Yes, it stands for “Simple Easy Adhesive Laydown.”

Q: Are Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ acid free and photo safe?

 A:  Yes.


Stampin’ SEAL or Stampin’ SEAL+ Troubleshooting

  • The tip of the adhesive runner should be in a flat position against the paper; avoid using it on an angle.

  • Once the laydown of the adhesive is complete, stop and pull the adhesive straight up. Avoid pulling the adhesive back to separate it from the paper.

  • If the adhesive will not advance and the trail breaks off, add slight pressure to get it rolling again. You may need to use your finger to advance the adhesive.

  • Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ create a strong adhesive bond. When using more fibrous papers, paper tearing may occur. If the paper tears and rolls into the adhesive, it will not ruin your adhesive roll. Stop and adjust your location and angle before proceeding with a slow and lightly controlled stroke.

  • Like what you may have experienced with SNAIL or Fast Fuse, it is possible for Stampin’ SEAL and Stampin’ SEAL+ to roll back on itself or jam. This can happen with any roller adhesive. If it occurs, we recommend stopping the adhesive laydown and adjusting the roll manually before proceeding. Using slow and controlled strokes is advised.
