Yep– hairspray. It’s not a majic cure, but it’ll keep it from coming off as easily.

I would hairspray and then wrap in tissue paper. Do a test run… Throw a few test pieces in the car while your running errands and see how it comes out at the end of the day.

Hairspray will work in a pinch. There are also fixative sprays that they sell at craft/art supply stores that will help with the smudging.

You could also try fixative. You can get it at Michael’s or any art supply store. I don’t know if hairspray would be sticky or leave a sort of “spray” pattern on the board?
