I made these cards recently for a couple of colleagues, and they were meant to go around at work for everyone to sign.  I like how they turned out, but because the inks are meant to be water reactive, I did notice that there was some marring of the ink, probably when someone signed after washing their hands or something. 

I'm wondering if a fixative or something would help prevent that in the future, or would it just cause other problems, or not worry about it? 

I'm not worried about things where it would be just myself or a couple of people signing, more when it is being passed around a large group.

I think so, yes. I have the Krylon Low Odor Clear Finish (I can spray indoors and I do) - it's a little bit shiny but I spray from far away for a light coat. So far, it's worked for me.

... and there was no distortion or bleeding with the initial spray?
