    Doesn't it rub off the page after a while?

    (Some questions just aren't very long ...)

    I think it kind of 'sets' after a day or two and once it's behind a page protector, I haven't had any problems.

    There is also some kind of spray to set it, I think.

    If you will be using page protectors, you don't need to worry about setting the chalk. I like to turn your page upside down on some scrap paper and rub the back to press the powder into the paper before putting it in the protectors, just to make sure that no powder will start sticking to the protector and look smudged.

    For cards that will be handled, I spray lightly with hairspray, which WILL yellow over time so it shouldn't be used for long-term projects, or Blair makes an acid-free spray that does the same thing.

    Hope that helps a little,

    Not sure who showed me this...but I use a paper napkin(table napkin) and rub the excess chalk off and have not had a problem.
