Most home improvement stores will have the Krylon clear coat lacquer. If you are looking for the one designed for art applications look at an art supply store or maybe a Hobby store like Ben Franklin's or Michaels.

If i walk into the store, i can ask them for Krylon and they would know what im talking about?
Plus is it expensive compared to getting coated labels made by an outside source?

Krylon will be in the paint section of just about every hardware store pretty much anywhere. However, be advised that if you are planning on sealing regular printed paper labels, you may get bleeding. Do a search for Acrylic Spray sealers, there are several brands, and I know Lowes at least sells the Americana brand.


Should only cost you about 2-3 bucks a can.

Krylon is a specific brand of spray paint manufacturer. Look at the paint department in any home improvement store and you should find it. It's probably about $4 a can at the store and although I have never used the product for a label application I can imagine it is much cheaper than buying your own labels. One can should be enough to coat several hundred labels.

Color Laser will create bleed proof labels.

Krylon Clear works GREAT on good paper, InkJet Printer
NOT good for Laser

Do not coat heavily! - a couple of dustings to protect it from soaking into the paper before a (slightly) heavier coat

Default Krylon Clear

I just bought some Krylon Clear this morning at Blick Art Supplies (don't know if there is one near you). The cost was $5.99.

Be aware, this stuff really reeks. I sprayed outside and let them dry and I can still smell them.

Yeah unfortunately i sprayed mine in my bedroom. It smelt for a few days.

Does anyone have any special application methods? Ive tried spraying the label before and after application of the label. Any suggestions?

I can't see a reason to spray this stuff after you put on the label. It would just get on the bottle and stink up the bottle.
