    Default glue back on sticker to cartridges


    I have a contra nes cartridge and the sticker is peeling back on the corner. What type of glue do you guys suggest I use to put the sticker back down?

    Super glue seems to crystallize the sticker and make it brittle. Any suggestions?

    Acrylic Gel Medium

    Artists use it as an extender for acrylic paint and as an adhesive for collages and such. It's a white paste that is very sticky and dries clear- very nice stuff. I had some NES labels that were peeling, what I did was cover the area under label with this stuff, using a palette knife:

    Press down the label with the knife and smooth it out until it's nice and flat and wipe off the excess. You could probably use a credit card in a pinch, the point is to use something flat and rigid, but not sharp. When the gel dries, it'll look great

    This is the exact stuff I use. This will dry with a glossy finish if you apply it over something, I think there's also a matte variety, but I prefer glossy. You should be able to find it at an arts & crafts store like Michael's.
