    It's kind of my fault for throwing them in my bag, but my autographed mystery pins from FairyTails are fading quickly. I can put them in plastic sleeves in the meantime but is there any way to protect the sharpie signature so I can display them? The sleeves would look super clunky on my board. Help!

    Maybe some sort of lacquer? I don't have experience with this though. Just a guess. I have heard of people using clear nail polish on stuff - but I don't know how it would react with a sharpie!

    If you wanted to do a small framed board, there is archival glass that will prevent fading. Normally I’d assume the glass is expensive, but based on how big (or small) a piece you need it may not be too bad. Plus, a framed board means they stay clean.

    I'm always rearranging my pins, which is at of the problem. It's more about making sure the signature doesn't rub off vs fade, sorry for my wording. So a framed set wouldn't work for me. I may have to find a good lacquer as TonkaToy suggested. Thanks for the advice though!

    There may even be a UV protective spray, or something out there too.
