  • Laminate

    I have a request to do a larger puzzle that I cannot print myself so I will go to a camera shop. I have had mixed results with larger prints in the past since they don't seem to be as robust as the glossy 8 x 12 and smaller prints. I have tried the triply thick glaze also with mixed results. Has anyone tried using a lamintate applied by a camera shop to protect the surface. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    I saw some of the blow up photos that Walgreens is doing now at a fairly decent price. I talked to a customer who was picking up her 3rd one and said they were the best. What I was impressed about them was that the put them on something that looked like a real thin (but sturdy) Masonite board and the size was approaching something like 24x30 or thereabouts.

    I would suggest you at least go take a look at the stuff they are doing now. It might suit your needs.

      I have my larger photos printed at Costco. Their prices are reasonable. I don't use their in-store printing, which is ink-jet based. I use their online service which uses laser-based equipment. The laser printing is less prone to scuffing than the ink-jet printing is. I have not found the need to protect the image with a clear finish or laminate, but I guess it wouldn't hurt.

        Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

        Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...

        The saw was plugged into a Festool Midi vac, which was plugged directly into a wall outlet.

        Rolf, could you explain your setup again? It appears your saw is plugged into foot switch which is plugged into outlet strip. Where does the Festool fit? Does it turn on when saw starts if it is...
