Product Questions and Answers

Does the protectant alter the printed image?

- Asked by Paul on 09-Mar-14

This spray finish should not alter the image. The surface texture may be affected based on the application (thin/thick coats) and gloss versus matte finish.

- Answered by MisterArt on 10-Mar-14

Does this hold up to repeated washings?

- Asked by mike on 08-Nov-12

This product is moisture-resistant, but not water-resistant. We don't recommend using this product on items that require hand washing or dishwashing.

I do not know about conservation value of this product but I do know that right out of the can it adds a considerable amount of yellow discoloration to what it is sprayed on. This was a deal breaker for me. Instant yellowing and "aging" of your print. If you are looking to add a vintage look then this will do it.

This works great for lables off of a printer. You saved us so much time, & no more smudging. This stuff is great. Thank You!

After hearing about the horrors of massive inkjet smearing of wedding invitations during postal delivery, I used this fixative to fix my wedding invitations, response cards, and inserts. It worked great! We were amazed at how well it worked -- it wasn't visible at all on the cards and we even held one card under running water after spraying and drying, and then rubbed it energetically with our fingers and it STILL wouldn't smear. Love this product! Do follow the directions on spraying only in well ventilated areas and taking care to not inhale. I did inhale a little bit by accident (really) and didn't feel too great for a few hours.

I agree with the other comments regarding the smell, but it doesn't linger. After a day of wearing out, they are fine! My silver foil labels are now of a professional quality! Just what I've been looking for! No more smudging and smearing! Dries clear and glossy.

Preserve It works well and is completely invisible. Well worth the price, just follow the directions please! Great for kids artwork and precious family photos!
Rated by: Aleta M. in manteca, CA
Works great just as stated. Makes labels waterproof but smells bad. It's worth it. Great stuff
Rated by: Aniko F. in Irvine, CA
This product is just great. Protects papers from fading so you can use more range of paper materials for collage work. KRYLON Preserve keeps chalk in place, acid-free/archival safe, so you will find it useful in scrapbooking too.
Rated by: Su D. in Bowling Green, OH
wonderful product for digital photos to keep them from fading and to keep chalk/pastels from smearing. At a nice price too
Rated by: Flora L. in North Dartmouth, MA
Whenever I placed digital photos printed on my ink jet printer in my scrapbooks, they always stuck to the page protectors. This product is great for solving that problem.
Rated by: Roy V. in san francisco, CA
does a very good job of protecting inkjet photos. no more fingerprints, water resistant, and UV resistant. downside: the smell lasts for 1-2 weeks and the aerosol can makes it hard to get perfectly even coats on small prints.
Rated by: Tamara Z. in Springfield, MA
I use this on photos that I print on my home printer. I had a problem where the pictures (ink) stuck to the plastic that covers them in photo albums. After using this spray on them I do not experience any sticking any longer!
