Laminating is a simple way to add a finishing touch to printed materials and to extend the life of any image. Laminating consists of applying a protective film to printed materials such as posters, photos, documents, teaching aids, banners and other promotional tools, allowing for greater color depth and superb presentation. What’s more, laminating films are easy to clean and will protect against discoloration, fading and deterioration.
While overlaminating is applied to the front of your piece, encapsulating consists of applying films to both sides, providing extra protection for applications where the printed material is not mounted on a rigid surface.
Various finishes and textures are available including matte, ultra-matte, gloss, satin, canvas, linen, pebble and more. A special type of laminating film can be used for graffiti protection or for custom-designed whiteboards for your home or business. Laminating will protect your documents and prints for a long time, saving on re-printing costs. See our Mounting+Laminating page to view our many options.
