Re: [BKARTS] laminating cardstock question

Not being a bookbinder I may be off base here....but another method of
adhering is to coat (lightly!) both surfaces to be adhered together with
Polymer medium. Let it dry, then use a warm iron to press the sheets
together. Best to lay a sheet of release paper over the surface before
ironing, to avoiding getting any acrylic medium on the iron, and to iron
from the center to the edges to avoid any air pockets or bubbles. Also best
to trim after sandwiching so you don't have to align edges perfectly. This
allows the paper to absorb the moisture and relax, so the paper is dry when
you do your layering.

Hoping it's helpful,
