Unfortunately the pen Freeman used didn't work on the photos and even now when I touch the photo the black marker comes off. Below are some photos of one of the photos, as you can see basically his whole signature has come off one of the photos onto the back of another.

Any advice to preserve the signatures so it doesn't completely come off? Do you think laminating would be a good option?

Three today:

Brendan Donkers, Graham Yallop and Phil Carlson.
