    Same glue you use for gluing a cigar back together if it unravels - vegetable glue

    Try pectin. You can get it at the supermarket. It's used in canning vegetables, jellies, jams, etc. You can get it in powder form and I believe in liquid form, as well.

    Another natural substance you can use for gluing some things is raw eggwhite. I haven't tried it on cigars so I don't know how it would react during the burning process but it works wonderfully well for such things as gluing the flap back down on an envelope that's been steamed open because you forgot to insert the check in the envelope when paying a bill and don't want to waste the already-addressed envelope of the postage stamp you've already stuck on it.

    I've got 100 sticks without bands. I'm a bit ****, but have decided that it's too much work to be worth it. I labeled that trays instead.

    Did you take the bands all off? Or are the ISOMs that shipped without the bands but in a separate package?
