Okay, so if you have a bubble that is just 'slightly' lifted from the card (about an 1 inch area)... is there a good way to fix this or better to just leave it alone?

The Top Loader is a good idea (what handsome bastard came up with that Very Happy ) ?


Ryan whatever you do, absolutely do NOT make any attempt to re-secure the bubble. Any glue, tape or heat will completely devalue the card. Better to have it a little loose

Yeah I wonder? unsure


I've just become a believer in the top loader method. Here's two MOCs that I've fixed up using it and a write up I did about it.

Thanks John, do they fit the cardbacks without them "wobbling" around?

I second this. Dont alter the Moc in a way that is not reversibele.

The toploader method worked like a charm, the bubble is secured on my Ledy stormie, and looks great,
only drawback is it won't fit my sliding back case now.... But the toploader is stiff enough to keep the card from warping and stands
prefectly straight, leaned to the back of my cabinet and displays great!

Looks great Jorn! On mine, I trimmed the edges down a bit so it would still fit into an acrylic case. I then taped the cut edges together so it wouldn't fall apart, but once you fit it in the case you probably don't even need to do that.

Thanks Shawn, quite happy myself! Cool
If it doesn't fall down from where it stands I'll just leave it like it is, but if it falls down I'll do it. Razz
