Q: Can you laminate Plickers cards?
A: It may seem tempting to laminate your Plickers cards to make them more durable for use with students. However, depending on the lighting in your classroom, lamination may interfere with or slow down the scanning process.
Instead of laminating your cards, we suggest 4 time-tested alternatives that teachers have successfully deployed in their classrooms to make their cards last:
- Buy all-plastic Plickers card sets with a matte-finish on Amazon
- Have students glue a printed Plickers card to the inside cover of a notebook
- Print Plickers cards on cardstock
- Make “Plagnets:” Plickers + Magnets, by printing Plickers on stickers and then adhering them to magnets.
