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.
