I am working on a project where I want to print out on my inkjet pics and then put them onto clear flat marbles. I know the ink will bleed so I was thinking of running through my xyron and put sticky on the ink side...but I still need to seal it. Should I use modge podge or what? I am not adding magnets...they will be used as game pieces.

Check out Krylon "Preserve It", spray sealant?
Make sure to use a good photo paper, and allow to image to dry really well. Light spray coats, both sides of the image.

I use "Workable Fixatif" by Krylon purchased at Michael's. Most of my printing is then run through my Xyron laminate cartridge and there is no smudging of the ink.

What about using the Xyron cartridge that applies adhesive to one side and laminate to the other?
