Re: [BKARTS] .....Question



Today, Jen asked:

>........does anyone know what wax should be used for polishing paper title
strips so they don't scuff?

*******************************************

Either of the following will work:

Renaissance Wax will protect the toner and paper on paper labels.  It is also
very good for polishing and protecting the marbling on marbled papers, but it
must be applied carefully.

Klucel G simply adds a coating to the paper and toner, giving good protection.
Sometimes requires two coats.

Klucel G is easily applied with a brush, dries quickly, and no polishing is
required.
