    I have a 3d foam letter on a wall with the laminated face peeling off.
    Is there an easy method to glue it back, without removing the letter from the wall?

    (what type of glue if needed)

    any tips would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    S22

    I would use this or this.

    The Gorilla epoxy is great stuff. Dispense, mix, apply, tape the laminate back in place (use Gorilla tape to hold it in place) and remove after5 minutes. I've never used the Powergrab and it takes longer to cure, but it's an option.

    Not sure how what shape the foam is in or how much adhesive is on the back of the laminate that's peeling off. If you are dealing with old foam and/or laminate with residue, you may just have to replace the letter.

    it is a edu with a polystyrene face, spray laminate glue and then your typical formica laminate.

    I'll look into the options you posted. Thanks.
