The application of plastic film lamination to display posters, signs and boards they can be single sided or double sided, hot or cold.

Plastic film lamination protects originals, enhances graphics and signage with a wide range of surface finishes. It can also increase rigidity for handling and reduce UV fading for longer life of printedmaterial and inkjet prints.

Hot or Cold Lamination?

Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages determined by the kind of picture and printing process to be protected or enhanced and based on findings and experience in practice. Neither can be guaranteed because of the high number of factors that can effect the final result. Heat can often effect the material being laminated.

We recommend the following:

  • Hot lamination for standard offset, electrostatic, laser printed or photocopied material.
  • Cold lamination process for all printed materials, especially for standard inkjet, wide format inkjet, thermal wax prints and photographs. Being single sided cold lamination can be applied to images mounted onto boards and thick substrates.

Hot Roll Lamination

Often called encapsulation or heat sealing, applies heat activated film to both sides of the poster Seals the poster and adds rigidity. Least expensive. Limited types of films available. The greater the thickness the more rigid the laminate.

Cold Lamination

Consists of a pressure sensitive film applied to the front of the print. Can also be applied to the back where encapsulation is required. Gives superior clarity, is available in non reflective finishes. Is generally always used on the face of mounted prints.

  • Prior to laminating, prints can be mounted to a wide range of backing material ranging from card, MDF board, foam board, corflute, acrylics and other sophisticated plastics.
  • We can advise the best option for your application and we have the latest technology to ensure blemish free results.
  • We can laminate small prints (up to A3) while you wait, great for menus, presentations, cards and small signage.
We can duplicate folders of documents and produce as many copies as needed and can supply the folders (if required), useful for compliance manuals, training courses and legal cases.
