Sealing graphics???

wnlbutterflyJanuary 9, 2003

Okay, this may be a dumb question BUT I will ask anyway. I have been making some computer crafts, but the biggest problem is of course, if they get wet (even one drop) will bleed the ink. Other than laminate everything, is there a spray sealer that will help? I was wondering about the fixative spray that they use for chalks and such.

Yes. there is a sealer to use on your projects. I use a spray on all my clock faces and soup can labels. Let me run out to the shop and get it........OK, here ya go! I got mine at A.C.Moore (a crafts store). It's a 'clear Acrylic Sealer' gloss. This stuff is not real glossy. The company is 'Plaid Decorative Crafts'. The cost was $4.99 and it works pretty good. Dries fast.
Take care, Steve C.

Why would you not want to laminate? Laminating is cheap and easy to do, and the best protection. I am on a computer craft group, and we all laminate most everything. If you don't have a lamination machine, there is some really cheap iron-on lamination at this site...

Wacky Wagon

Scroll down about 2/3 of the way to read about it. It's $10.00 for a roll of 200' by 11 1/8". The shipping is really cheap too. What you do is email her and tell her what you want and she will email you back with a grand total and 3 choices of how you want to pay. The roll of laminate is actually for laminating machines, but someone accidentally discovered that they can iron it on. I have been using it for several months now.

Hope this helps!

I have a laminator, Xyron 1200. BUT I do some small things, like that just take small header cards, and I don't want to take the added time to laminate, when I sell them for .50. And I make a lot of these, like we are talking hundreds, so the laninating costs would figure in.

Just some items don't look right laminated, don't want the shiny glossy look.

Thanks for the tip on the spray. I am certain I have that here in my supplies and will give it a try.
