The best glue at least for paper and carton is PVA glue!
any volume available. can be mixed with water. easily washed off hands and brushes. i dont know about overseas - but it isnt costly in russia.
I use archival PVA bookbinders glue for heavy duty items that won't wrinkle. Most of the time, I use Premium BEST-TEST White Rubber Paper Cement. It's acid-free and does not wrinkle or curl stamps, et al. This glue is very thin when dry and not like cheaper office supply rubber cement you might find. Only good art stores carry it.
In some cases, I do use glue sticks, don't feel that they will hold up over the years.
