Question DetailsAsked on 4/26/2015

Special Project: Baseball Card WallLooking to make a baseball card wall in bathroom with laminate.

I have a bunch of baseball cards that I am wanting to put on the walls of my bathroom. I need a service that will apply these to my bathroom wall. Obviously there will be moisture in the bathroom so I hope that there is a good way to keep the cards on the wall. This is not a project that I want to take on myself I need it done professionally.The bathroom is not very big at all

That is a tough one - because in a bathroom I think the only way they will survive is to laminate them in plastic with a wide laminate border around them to stop moisture intrusion. However, if these are valuable cards (collectibles) then laminating them will certainly affect their value.


Only other way I can see doing it with the originals is having them mounted in a nitrogen-atmosphere sealed display frame - museum quality, which is likely to be $1000 range.


One out-of-the box suggestion - how about having them professionally photographed, laid out like you want them on a proper colored cloth or paper background, then a large laminated glossy poster of the photo printed off - probably a couple hundred $ plus whatever cost for whatever frame you want around it, so you get the artwork in the bathroom but do not risk damaging the original cards, which you can safely store away in a proper storage environment ?
