Default Sealing images for bottlecaps

I am getting some bottlecap images printed at Walmart. Do I need to seal those before I put on bottlecaps and glaze? I always seal the ones I print at home, but i wasn't sure about this.

Also, I have been using the diamond glaze but it looks like it seeps in under my image (that's my best guess because the edges always look darker than the rest of the image). I have been applying with a paint brush, but should I just pour it over the whole cap and let it drip off instead? I would greatly apprecaite any help. Thanks!

I always print mine at home, but I've heard you do not have to seal the images from Walgreens, etc.
On the seeping issue, you might need to glue the edge down better. Also, make sure you aren't pushing the glaze up under the image with the paintbrush.

Dont just pour it on and let it drip off because then you'll have a hard dried up excess ring on the bottom. I did see directions somewhere where they dipped the whole bottle cap in envirotex and let it dry on wax paper. But I use envirotex and just spread it out on top. Glue your edges down better mayber that will help.

I had this problem as well - especially with images on white background. Put a little Mod Podge on your finger and run it around the cut edges of your image, Let it dry and you should be set to go. HTH!

i also use modge podge first--clear of course, let it dry and then go around in a circle w/ 3d crystal applying a small amount everytime.
