Laminating Services

Use our lamination services to add a protective, transparent finish to your project. We have a variety of equipment that is capable of one-sided lamination, often used for book covers and presentation folders, as well as two-sided lamination, which is typically used for preserving and protecting paper and prints. We offer polyester, polypropylene, or nylon film with your choice of gloss, matte, or satin finishes, as well as special super stick and ultra grip films that are compatible with digital prints. Edge options include a flush cut with no excess film, or a sealed edge with a 1/8" film border. Able to laminate materials measuring from 2" x 3" up to 36" x 60", we also offer a high speed thin-film process, which is ideal for economical high volume processing of materials measuring 12"-40" long and 12"-28" wide.

Laminating is a great complement to our die cutting, foil stamping, and fold & glue services. From concept to finished product, our staff will help create a look that is just right for you and stays within your budget. For more information on how our or custom specialty laminating services can protect your printed materials from the spills, wear, and tear of frequent use, contact us today.
