Sales cards and packaging.

Post by loomis » Mon Jun 21, 2010 5:11 pm

I have started setting up my office/mancave, and a few lures are now up on display. Its easy enough when they are just the lures, but when they ar still in their packaging or on sales cards, it makes my ideas a little more complicated. So I have decided to remove the lures from the salescards and so on, with only the wooden Crazy Crawlers and the other selected lures being left in/on their packaging.

Whilst I was removing a few from their sales cards last night, Jaime (my wife) asked "Why dont you laminate the cards if you want to keep them in good condition?". At first I dismissed the idea, but after thinking about it, I can see some logic behind it.

So I thought I would ask what your thoughts are?

Leigh,they would make better beer coasters if you laminate them lol No personally i wouldn't laminate them as it in some way alters them from how they were bought but if you want to just protect them put them in a suitabley sized zip seal bag.

coke is better...but back on topic...

I wouldn't laminate em. Zip lock em or come up with another way to display the lures while still on cards

Can't undo laminating, maybe the old fashioned photo albumn might be an answer if you want to lok at them easiluy, otherwise as Brolly and Rupe said ziplock bag them to keep them in good nick.

There is certainly a lot of scope for the best methods to keep lures and things like display cards in good condition.

Paper or card will last for centuries with proper care, but that plastic laminate will be stuffed in a couple of decades:-

MXB I have an album full of them that I have had for years, the album keeps them in pristine order (some the cards are better than the lures I took of them). Nev
