Is FT water/splashproof? A thin layer of see-through self-adhesive plastic (kind used for covering books) might do the trick. If it's just paper it'll wear out very quickly. For light backing maybe thin foam-filled cardboard (I don't know what it's in English, Kapaline?)?


FT is splashproof. I wouldn't take a bath with them, but a little water should wipe off easily. Foam core is what we call what you are talking about. I'm not sure what it's made of...my husband is a graphic designer and works at a display place and he printed it there. It's like a very heavy-duty photo, with a gray backing. *Don is on the phone now: "It's a poly film," he says, "They're built to party."

They're going to Megg in Warsaw, Poland next. After that, we still gotta figure it out. We have a list and know the boardies that are going to be attending some gigs, but there isn't a set order yet.

*goes back to making little paper clothes* :)

Probably...with work and all during the week. They'll be our good luck charms. I just want to take pictures in a few locations after work tomorrow and Friday if I can and then they're off to Polska! :)

I'm sure you'll think of some place. I think the point is to show where we live. It might seem boring to you as you go about your routine but I am sure there are some places that would interest us.

If not, just take them to McDonald's, Applebee's, and Chili's.

Excellent news, Don rocks!

I'm kind of his colleague, actually, just about to send some posters to be printed. It's just that I do my work-related talk in Finnish, so the English terminology is slightly missing.
