 How about this? Print your transparency. Get one of the
mousepads with the lift up clear cover. They make them
so you can put your own picture of whatever you like under
the cover. Then instead of a picture you put some aluminum
foil and your printed transparency under the cover? That
way your transparency and foil might last forever and not
ever need to be redone? And if anything happened to the
mousepad part, just toss it and grab another?
