Xyron sticker maker

The Xyron® 1.5 inch sticker maker (also called the X or 150) is one of the best ways to add edge-to-edge adhesive to a variety of printed materials.

You can apply permanent or repositionable adhesive to items up to 1.5 inches wide without heat, batteries or electricity.  The standard model comes loaded with 20 feet of acid-free permanent adhesive.

N.B. Xyron products, or similar, are currently not available via Office Depot (SciQuest) so were procured via Amazon. prices
