Default How to stop this from happening?

Hi ladies, been a while! lol Anyway, I have a problem. I have been selling bottlecaps to people in my town who make their own bows. Well, I have had 2 of them call and tell me that the image came off the bottlecaps. I don't know what to do. I glue them on with ModgePodge and I use Eviro for resin. Please someone help me! I know I have searched the forums and someone said that they must be picking them off but I have had some come off in a box of finished ones that I have. HELP! lol

I don't know about caps that have the image on the top, but I know that when it's on the inside and you use ET, it cannot come off. I would think though on top, as long as the ET goes over the edge a bit to cover the edges of the image, it should be set perm.

I use my xyron, and wait at least 24 hours for the glue to cure before using epoxy. Never had a problem.

I see you all are using the xyron and so do I, but I cannot get those images to stay for the life of me... Maybe it's the photo paper you use ?

Are you using the permanent adhesive tape on your xyron? That's a pretty strong adhesive and I have tried to pull off the image afterwards and it would NOT come off!
