Do not use glue. Use double-sided tape. It’s awesome and it won’t bunch up or get messy like glue.

Go to your local hobby lobby and get a good double sided tape in the scrapbooking section.

Using glue will make the invitations very stiff (which the p.o. almost wanted to charge me a surcharge for)

and it can also make them “bow up” on one side or in the middle.

I used an xyron machine.  We use pocketfold invitations has essentially had to mount the invitation twice.  It was quick and easy and won’t peel off at all.  Downside – all the refill cartridges can add up in price if your concerned about that.

I bought this to use for my programs, its dispenses many tiny glue dots, instead of one big glue dot at a time..

Personally, I’ve been using 3M photo mount spray glue. It’s awesome. Sort of stinky, so do it in your garage or outdoors.

I’ve used rubber cement because it doesn’t get the paper wrinkled, and you can peel pages apart if you don’t have them lined up the way you want.  Or spray adhesive-but that’s permanent!

I second the vote for the adhesive dot roller! You’ll need a few of them, but they work great. I found that double-sided tape didn’t stick so well because of the texture of the paper I used – it was metallic/coated paper stock from cardsandpockets.com, and looks similar to your photo. Spray glue could also work, but I would test it with your paper.

An ATG is awesome and will hold up really well… get it at michaels or joanns with a coupon nothing you put on there will be going anywhere!

or yes, i agree with the glue dot runner…  just make sure it says “permanent” and make sure you get a few refills…  you will need them.  With the ATG you should have enough to not need to purchase additional refills. 

here is what a glue do runner looks like

hope this helps;)
