Laminating:

  • All markers are laminated for the Memorial.
  • A thick lamination (10 mil) is needed for markers to last outdoors.
  • Many office supply businesses can provide this service.
  • Project volunteers recognize that laminating may be difficult to accomplish. If needed, send the marker you created to our mailing address, with a piece of cardboard inserted into the envelope to keep it from being damaged in the mail.
  • Remember to sign your hand-written information on the back of the marker, at the bottom. This information will appear in that bottom one-inch margin.
