Cricut vinyls are removable. So if you’re reworking a similar project, you may want to use a different brand with stronger glue. To help those you have created, you can smear the letters. You can use a spray sealer or even a Mod Podge to coat it. There is also a clear permanent vinyl that you can use.
As far as I know in the product specifications, vinyl stickers should never have a clear coating. From my experience, I suspect that due to a layer of clear coat or varnish applied to them, the decals will last as long as they should.
If you need to paint but are unable to remove existing decals from the surface you are working on, you will need to repaint the decals using the correct techniques. Unfortunately, the decals are not suitable for bonding and require special preparation before the paint is accepted.
We have used Mod Podge (not Modge Podge as I know many of us call it) with success on many of our projects, including vinyl sealing, custom photo canvas archiving, and pretty sparkly stuff. Mod Podge is also non-toxic and generally safe for older children.
Be careful not to touch it until it is completely hardened as you will smear the ink on the sticker. Another way to seal it is to take a jar of clear varnish and spray it on the strokes. You can also leave the stickers blank, but they may go away faster.
There are three ways to seal craft projects, including those with vinyl. This is a spray sealant such as polyurethane polyacrylic spray, dishwasher safe mod podge or epoxy. For a board like this with vinyl, I would definitely recommend using an epoxy. and pour it on the plate.

It just means that the putty you use on your mug must be compatible with this type of vinyl. When using this kit, apply it in thin layers. Otherwise, the application of a thick layer curls. NOTE: If you choose this sealant, make sure it is 100% acrylic, not polyurethane.
Also, I’ve seen people say that using a spray laminate to seal helps prevent this from happening. Expression vinyls have a printable vinyl that does not require sealing or lamination, but is a little more expensive.
Applying paint to decals will keep them on the wood surface for years. After covering the adhesive with a light coat of paint, let the surface dry for 30 minutes to an hour. If you can still feel the edges of the stickers, apply another thin coat of polish.
