Default Re-sticking Paper Tags to Metal Shell

Hi guys. Any tips for re-gluing a paper tag back onto the interior of the shell of a Rogers Powertone all-metal snare?
Thanks in advance for any tips.

Simple white Elmer's glue should do the trick.

Thanks all. I got it up and running. It sounds so much better with that paper tag in there.

You bet. It's an essential component to the overall sound. It's a sign of a discerning ear that you can hear the difference between a drum with a paper tag and one that doesn't. I stay away from flat, boxy sounding drums with no paper tag inside myself. Ludwig should have used them on all of their drums!

Yep I'll second this advise. Will not damage the paper. Smear a little with your finger on the shell and press the label down.

I'm such a klutz! I'm heartbroken! I wrecked the thing! I used super glue. It was all I had OK? ��
It soaked right through the paper and now it's all splotchy and discolored. I was just so eager to do it. I wasn't thinking. What was I thinking? Of course it was going to wreck the paper.
Is it fixable?
