    I'm going to ask a dumb 1st year question...

    Can I laminate things that have been colored with crayons? (The wax won't melt?)

    Can I laminate things that have stickers on them? My kids kept sticker charts all year of their progress toward goals- I thought it would be cool to laminate the filled-in charts and have them take them home. These charts have up to 100 little stickers on them.

    Yes, I believe you can laminate those things.

    You can laminate just about anything!

    The only things I would caution against laminating are:

    - art done with pastels - it smudges
    - anything with raised items like staples, brads, trinkets, etc.

    Laminated crayon is really cool-the heat intensifies the wax color. Stickers are also just fine!

    You can laminate pretty much whatever, but I will say that I have had crayon-colored stuff melt in the laminator before. It wasn't ruined or anything, but the wax was smeary where they'd colored excessively.

    I have laminated both of those things with no problem ,but just be careful not to get the laminator too hot-it can happen and then the crayon can melt a little and curls the paper.
