Spore print tip.
    #1693392 - 07/07/03 04:29 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Everyone has a preference for spore prints. Aluminum foil or index cards.

Here's a suggestion:
Go to your local Walmart or sports memorabilia store. Look for the sports card protectors.

They are clear plastic that is hinged on one end and can be snapped closed on all sides.

Make your print while in the open position and snap closed to protect and preserve.

  • Self contained

  • No wrapper required.

  • Uniform sizes for easy storage.

  • Clear cases for viewing.

  • Flat surfaces for easy labeling.

  • Easy to clean.

  • Reusable.


You should be able to find them for as little as $10.00 per 100.

another suggestion for print takers .please just open your terrariums when you decide to crop them.cool mistes are indispensable for this.but it makes a clean world.

Would you sterilize that using 90% isopropyl?

No, Ainasko, how would you sterlize the cards before use/reuse?

I usually use 91% isopropyl alcohol for cleaning. Many stores only offer 71%. If your local Walmart doesn't carry it, try your local pharmacy. Lysol would also work. I've even run them through my dishwasher which is great because ours has a disinfecting cycle.

There are different qualities of the card protectors. Some are cheap flexible plastic. Others are air-tight and rigid. They were designed for varied collectible value. Pay as little or as much as you'd like.

They even sell hard cases for the card protectors that are great for organizing. They fit them perfectly, are inexpensive and available in many sizes to suit your spore collection needs.

I only saw the standard size baseball card protectors at Walmart, but I've seen various sizes at sports memorabilia shops. I didn't compare prices for various sizes, but I'm sure they're still reasonable.
