Glue before or after stain?

Hey guys been awhile, hope you're all doing well. I just got my first contract to build for a client who wants 4 boxes they can use as logo branded gift boxes for a client of theirs. I'm wondering if its ok to glue up the bottoms after staining, or if I need to sand the stained areas where I'll be applying the wood glue? Thanks again!

If you want it done right, study up & get to work!

Should mention I'm using a minwax water-based stain.

Any place you need the glue to stick shouldn't be stained. The binder in the stain will reduce the ability for the glue to adhere.

Thank you Steve, guess I'll sand the stained areas down on the two I've already stained (oops) and tape up those areas on the next two prior to staining.
