I am pondering making some fabric covered items that will receive some handling and therefore wear -- they will have some metallic surfaces -- commercially printed and printed by me -- metallics often wedar off -- any ideas on the type of product i could spray to maintain the metallics ???

If you think the piece will recieve a lot of handling, a spray is probably not your best bet.  You may want to brush on a coat of an acrylic sealant.  Maybe some matte fabric medium?  Brushing on the medium will soak into the fibers better.  note that it can change the color and hand of the fabric to use any kind of sealant.
