How do you preserve your puzzle?

How do you preserve your puzzle?

Smear glue
Give it in to laminate
self-adhesive laminating tape
Dump it and assemble the next one

What's the average cost and how is the quality?

MasterPieces - Jigsaw Puzzle Glue
For big puzzles do the back also. Did many during lockdown. Even the 4k one turned out good.

Glue, both sides. I do 1000 piece puzzles.
Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.

And when the glue leaks through and gets stuck? Or it doesn't happen

Leaks through where? Gets stuck to what? I put some layer of protection underneath, like parchment paper, and it's fine. Doesn't get stuck, and if it does a gentle pull will do

Do the front first with wax paper underneath or as @JuryDuty said.

Another question is what do you do with all your glued puzzles? Might need to buy another house to hang them all up...

Put them under the pad on the dining room table and remember about them once a year before pesach.
Sorry if I ask so many questions, but life is short and there is so much to learn! Let's help each other be great!

Used to use glue. Now we just flip over the puzzle and slap 4x6 stickers all over the back.

How is turning the puzzles upside down gonna help with anything? You won’t even be able to appreciate what you’re looking at without craning your neck.
