Question
I want to glue a slightly curved business card sized piece of plastic to a same size piece of sturdy cardboard so it's permanently bonded, mounted and flattened.

Is super glue likely to be strong enough? If not, any other adhesive you would recommend?

Answer
Best Glue Ever
Best Glue Ever  
Super glue is not made for paper to plastic. I would recommend a very strong scrapbooking type adhesive. It is a challenge to bond paper permanently to a non-porous media but I would recommend you look into the Best Glue Ever񠦲om ScraPerfect. http://scraperfect.com/products-2/best-glue-ever NOTE: It may be that the paper will curve to when adhered to the plastic, unless the sturdy cardboard is incredibly rigid--like perhaps an art mat-type board.
