I have agreed to design some information signs for ds's ex junior school's woodland nature trail - I would illustrate the different birds/trees/grasses/plants and these signs would be dotted about...but what would be the best way of presenting them so that they don't look tatty within weeks of putting up - would laminating be enough ?
Anyone done anything similar ? TIA

No specific experience, but I have a laminator, lovely thing, a bargain at Tesco of all unexpectednesses; and things I've laminated go on looking smart & being robust for ever.

Our nanny once made some laminated place mats & they survived being daily sodden with milk & wet wipes & everything for several months before starting to leak & spoil.

Laminating should be ok if they are not in direct sunlight. You could edge them with twigs to give them a rustic feel and stop them flapping about too much?

edging with twigs sounds great ! - very rustic and woodlandish
