I like this Disappearing purple school stick. I like the color that it’s so pretty and it won’t show the color when you using it.

Wonderful item! Bought this glue stick for my daughter to make different homemade crafts for school. And this glue did its job perfectly. And purple disappears nicely without leaving any traces.

Great quality glue stick. Our GM prefers to make a lot of our kids contest prizes and cards by hand and this is a very affordable glue stick.

Donald W. from NT on 06/25/2019

Purchased for school, great deal. My son uses these regularly in classroom. Works very well for paper related crafts. Works very easy and does a great job.

Alexandr C. from Food Service on 06/16/2019

Purple disappearing glue is seriously so genius! Now you can actually see where you have already applied the glue to so you do not have to keep going over spots. Disappears nicely and cant even tell it was purple to begin with.

James M. on 03/15/2019

It's a good everyday use glue stick for kids and adults alike. It's colored purple so you can tell when you're glueing the same place. Elmer's is also a time tested brand. No clumping, sticks well, and it's a versatile item to have in the school or office

Angela K. on 12/19/2018

Elmer's Disappearing Purple glue stick in the larger format for quick application over larger areas such as posters or banners. The disappearing feature is great to see where the glue has been applied.

Leo S. on 11/26/2018

Elmers is a long trusted brand of glue and glue sticks As a scrapbooker, glue sticks are a household staple for me. The disappearing purple does make it a little easier to use, too.

Patty P. on 10/28/2018

Great for arts and crafts, scrapbooking and school projects. I love these because it's not messy and if you keep the cap on tightly these do not dry out. This glue bonds very well and its simple to use.

Angela on 03/09/2018

This glue is great for kids or adults to use on arts and crafts projects. It's non-toxic and dries quickly. Make sure you put the cap on tightly after use so it doesn't dry out.

Vince S. on 01/04/2018

The glue stick is reasonably priced and works well. The case is sturdy, and it glues pieces of paper together effectively. The disappearing purple helps with application, and is a nice touch.

This is a great easy way to allow kids to use glue in a mess free way. The purple color helps them to apply the glue but it’s a great feature that it dries clear

Elmer's E524 0.77 oz. Disappearing Purple School Glue Stick is something I've been needing for a while but I think it's extra cool since it changes colors.

This Elmer's glue stick is very nice to have in our home. It works very well on construction paper and is easy to use. I am happy with my purchase and definitely recommend this product.

Chip C. on 07/21/2017

This Elmer Purple Disappearing School Glue Stick is exactly as described and I have no complaints. The glue really does start off a bright purple color. It arrived on time and was not melted on the inside at all. I would like to see additional bulk purchasing options available in the future but would recommend this to anyone.

Jason M. on 07/09/2017

Fun glue for children or anyone as you can see where it goes but it does dry clear1 The purple shows up and lets you know what you put the glue on which is great as gluestick can be hard to know where you did it. Very easy to apply and does work well for paper projects!

Twins A. on 05/27/2017

Elmers glue has been the premier glue company in the country that is prevalent in churches, schools and hospitals. Its awesome that the disappearing glue does in fact become transparent and adheres paper as it should. Wonderful product with many uses.

Anna M. from Dream Thread LLC on 05/23/2017

A traditional glue stick that applies easily and allows us to adhere posters and noted to designated walls. The purple makes it easier to do this.

Travis F. from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe on 05/10/2017

.77 ounce Elmer's disappearing purple school glue. This one is for my daughter as she likes pink and purple so that's pretty much the only one that gets this one.

Person O. on 04/27/2017

This is a great glue stick to have. This disappearing purple school glue stick is really purple glue. You apply and can see where you put the glue and then after about 1 minutes it starts to disappear to clear!

Elijah on 04/22/2017
