I luckily stumbled across this website the other day and I had no idea that such a website existed but I am thankful it does. I saw a post from someone who was asking for help but I was not a member yet and could not respond. I have since been signed up and now I am having difficulties finding their post to respond to. The member said they were having problems getting a digital sheet gameboard aqueous coated. For some reason whoever he was dealing with told him incorrectly. We print digital gameboards quite frequently and we have often aqueous coated them for durability and protection. Laminating is not the only option out there. Now you cannot varnish over digital printing, that will indeed cause the printed surface to dissolve, but aqueous coating is very safe and a good way to protect the board. If anyone has seen the post regarding this persons issues could you please let me know? Where I might be able to find his post? Thanks for your help all.

How long ago?

The seach feature is not very good.

How long ago was it? You could search this site using googles advanced seach and setting the time period to pair it down since we talk about game boards alot.

BTW what is youre company?

By day I’m David E. Whitcher; student services representative for the University of Michigan’s Registrars office.

But at night I turn into David E. Whitcher; Game designer, Protospiel Organizer, Registrar for the University of Catan which means I am a Mayfair Games demo guy, and a few other things to boot.

I’ve been at this since 2003 with mixed success but it certainly has been interesting.

I don't know the search function here, but Google can do it quite well: The question

lamination "aqueous+coating" site:bgdf.com

returned 3 results, including this one:

Printing variable data on my game cards

containing "According to the printer the aqueous coating will dissolve the toner ". Maybe it is what you meant; otherwise you may want to try other keywords and maybe a custom date range or other tools.

Thank you so much

this is the one I was looking for. I just wanted to let this member know we do aqueous coating all the time, Varnish is the one that will dissolve the toner.
