Applied in Clermont County

Postby dirtdawg » Thu Apr 17, 2008 9:33 pm

I applied for my Ohio License to Carry a Concealed Handgun in Clermont County on March 27. I received a call that it was ready on April 15- so about a 19 day wait. They said it could be picked up 24 hours a day, seven days a week! Very cool. The duty personnel were very courteous.

When I picked my license up last evening, the deputy informed me that I should laminate the card or keep it in the protective sleeve-
Any advice here? It seems to be the same basic manufacture as my driver license which holds up fine. In consideration of the high cost of the application, I would have expected something that could hold up until 2013...

All in all, I'm glad all the ducks finally lined up.

I kept my original in the paper sleeve throughout it's life (it looks as good as it did the day I got it) and intend to do that with my renewal. I've read a lot of reports that CHLs that weren't protected transferred their ink to whatever else they were kept in (e.g vinyl photo sleeve in a wallet).

If you do not laminate it, keep it in the Tyvek sleeve, the photo, and probably the printing, will wear out. Driver's Licenses (permits? :wink: ) have an extra layer laminated over the printed side. My original photo started looking like Little Orphan Annie, no eyes-just big open circles, after about a year. Use a good quality laminating film rather than packing tape, it will last longer as it is not as soft as many of the clear packing tapes.

Still waiting to get mine but I had no idea they weren't laminated. My Florida CHL is laminted just like a driver's license.
