"We also considered the entire manufacturing process of the new packaging and were pleased to learn that it requires 90% less water to produce than similar products, which means 90% less effluent water discharged at the end of the process.

Included in the roll-product line are 1 Glue Lines®, Continuous Glue Lines®, Pop Up Glue Dots®, Removable Glue Dots®, Memory Book Glue Dots®, Mini Glue Dots® and Craft Glue Dots®.
