My god another worry! What do you propose we spray the prints with?

- Jerry my point was to protect your prints, because there are so many things 
out there that can damage them.  What you choose it protect with is I believe 
personal preference.  Optima is a very good product, Lyson has a protective 
spray (however it is only available in aerosol I believe).  My very favorite 
right now is Tedlar, DuPont just released a 1 mil laminate that is wonderful. 
 You can't even tell it is there it is so thin, yet it is graffiti proof, has 
UV protection and obviously protects against water.
