Does anyone know for sure if you use contact paper on items such as buckets/wine glasses/plastic tumblers etc....will it last? Do they make a "protectant sealer" that will make it last longer? I can't seem to find a straight forward answer ANYWHERE on the internet... I am currently waiting on my order of outdoor vinyl to arrive.

Thanks in advance BigGrin

I used contact paper to put names on sand buckets for my son's birthday party, but I didn't expect it to last :) You should wait for your vinyl if you want it to be permanent. I have also used white contact paper with the word collage cartridge and mounted it on paper and framed it.

Sorry, I'm impatient too!

Also, with some of the outdoor permanent vinyl it's important that you really burnish that stuff down. Apparently some of the adhesive requires "friction" so to speak to really adhere. I have used it on wine glasses and acrylic tumblers and while it seems pretty permanent, I still advise everyone to hand wash when I give them as gifts.

Have fun! Post your work when your done!
