How can I coat Photos from my home printer to use as gift wrap?

I can't find suitable gift wrapping paper for a plaque project I'm working on so I'm wondering if I can use my printer instead. My question, what can I coat the printed photos with to make them last? Thank you!

    check out a local craft store in the notebook section, or photo supply for sprays

    Print the pics on a color laser printer & use Modge Podge to seal. If you don’t have a color laser printer, the office stores can print them from a flash drive for you. It’s not too expensive, but I’m sure you can call & ask in order to decide for yourself. The imk from the laser printer does not mess up the pic.

    You could try a craft spray on sealer. I have used them on my craft projects. They are readily available at craft stores

    ModgePodge will make a good coating for printed photos. But please remember, wrapping paper often goes straight to the trash. The idea is terrific! ☺️
