Default ugg, bottlecaps ruined, any ideas???

I am so upset right now! I have been making bottlecaps for several months and LOVE doing it, finally started selling some on ebay. The ones I used here and at shows have done perfect, but somehow I put them in little baggies to ship and by the time they arrive at the buyer's home they are ruined. I've had two complaints this week, so far and have sold or shipped to another twenty people. What am I doing wrong? I use either glossy accents or 3d crystal lacquer as a sealant and had been using modge podge to glue the images down. I did try some of that clear tacky glue but that doesn't work at all, they come off. But I dont understand what I'm doing wrong with the others? One lady said they weren't dry when they arrived and now they have a fingerprint in the middle, but I know they were dry when I shipped them or I would have never shipped. Any body got any advice?

I looked, and the last three bottles of sealant have been that 3d crystal lacquer, never had a problem before but could it be old?

Diamnd glaze and 3d laquar never get completly dry or solid for me, I use either Rio Colores Doming resing or Easy Cast Clear Casting Epoxy Enamel Resin (this one is at Michaels) and those are the ONLY ones that get fully cured for me

I use a xyron sticker maker w/permenat adhisive & i used et lite to seal my images.

maybe also ask the people if they can send you a picture of the bottlecaps
before you refund or replace them
