True but a flag, a luggage tag, a record.... Any of that stuff is ok to print as long as it does not have a company name or logo

After working at a GS bakery for so long I'm sick of edible image cakes lol. I know that they are good to use though.

    do you need to wash the laminated items in soap & water before putting them on your cake or would it be okay just to laminate and then use on the cake?

Rather than laminating with non-foodsafe plastic, and to eliminate prolonged contact, just wrap in food safe plastic like a Ziploc bag, Glad, or Saran wrap.

The problem with wrapping the item in food-safe plastic wrap or a zip-top bag is that it then looks like it's in plastic wrap or a bag.

 

In the case of the laminated picture of a phonograph record on my father's 78th birthday cake, I isolated the laminated item, so that it wasn't in direct contact with the cake, by mounting it atop a small plastic cup that was then inserted into the center hole of the (naked Bundt pound) cake, with only the (presumably food-safe) plastic cup in contact with the cake.
