So sorry to hear of your accident ! Best wishes for school !!

Do most of you print off your graphics from your home computer onto paper or do you take them to the store and print them as pictures on that kind of paper? After your print off your things do you laminate them before putting the magnets on them? Just trying to figure out the best way to do them?
If you DO laminate them, where do you take them? I know our UPS store does them here but they're like $2.50 a page for an 8 x 11 size and didn't know if there was anywhere else that does them cheaper or if I should just buy my own machine for that price?
Thanks for ANY help!!

I buy cardstock and print them off myself. Wal-mart has a laminator for around $20 which works really well. I've used mine for 4years now. After you laminate then stick on the magnets, I usually get the roll of magnets and just cut off the pieces I want. Then I put them between heavy books for a day or so. That way you know they are on there really good

I made my first magnets this week! I printed mine at home using white cardstock. I laminated them using an 8x10 laminating pouch I bought at Walmart. Very easy to use! Before I laminated them, I wrote on the back
"Stolen from cabin ____" Most of mine are personalized, but not all, and I read that tip somewhere on here and thought it was a great idea! I also bought a roll of magnetic tape that came on a tape dispenser, just like regular scotch tape...nothing to peel off and it's very thin and sticks well. I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby but it could have been Michael's or Walmart.

I saw the $20 laminator at Walmart...good it know it works well; I may have to invest in one!

I also used white card stock and bought the laminating machine from Walmart. The only thing I didn't do was buy the pouches from Walmart because SAMs had a pack of 200 pouches for $20. They were not the scotch brand but they worked just the same. I even went back and bought another pack incase they stop carrying them!

I also bought a laminator at BJ's Wholesale for $19.99. The pouches there were very reasonable (under $10.00) for 50 letter size pouches and it works really well. I heard that Costco has the same one.

Thanks guys! I had seen them (laminating machines) at Target, I just wasn't sure what was going to be my best deal price wise!!
I will laminate for sure and I have a bunch of magnet stuff here so I'll use those and follow your tips!!
I especially love the tip to write "Stolen from Room..." before I laminate!

I used Iron on transfers for a test t-shirt, but aparently my printer sucks, because the black ink just turned muddy when the shirt was washed. I have used the rest of the transfer paper to make the name badges on our FE, and other items like that, but nothing that is going to be washed. Not really sure if it IS my printer or not, because others have great luck with Amys transfers.

Milliepie,

I was looking at your files and would like to make the following requests:

Disney Cruise Line - Journal Pages:

- Can you do one for the Port of Miami like the Port of Los Angeles one?

- Could I get the "atseadayblankjournalpage.jpg" with all lines (no wording in the body)

- a page for the port of Caratagena

- a page for the port of Panama Canal


Thanks so much - your journal pages are wonderful!
