I get this at Staples. Best thing I have found. Very tough, flexible, cuts and repositions easily, is very clear, and does not "yellow." I vouch only for the Staples brand, however. I have bought similar stuff from local grocery stores that seems nowhere near as good.

I've tried that clear contact stuff, but found it made the figures hard to cut out neatly and some types made them too shiny as well. One good way: I found that polyurethane varnish used for boats was pretty good. It soaks in to the paper/card without making the ink run and when it dries, you can hardly tell it's there. But, you need to it outside or in well ventilated room.
I don't do anything to my minis, except store them in a photo album with "magnetic" sheets. I have some printed on inexpensive cardstock and a lot printed on various brands of matte photo paper, and have never felt a need for doing anything additional to protect them. Some are probably a decade old at this point.

I don't bother. It's so easy to produce and assemble another sheet of figures--but then I do skirmish not mass games. Had I battalions of Napoleonic line infantry, my answer would probably differ. When I do protect, I use wide packing tape. A quick twirl with the Xacto and they're trimmed.
I don't bother. Like mproteau, I've been at this for probably a decade now, and have only rarely had anything adverse happen to my minis (a dog stole a shrub off a table, etc) and then I just print another one.
Coffee spills are the most dangerous threat to my paper minis, whole armies of elves have been drowned when the occasional deluge of caffeine sweeps across my workspace. Then it's back to the printer to make more as I don't do anything to protect my hundreds of paper minis.
Paper models though do get a matte spray when complete, just a habit from making metal and plastic models.
