Let’s start at the beginning: lamination is the process of applying a plastic film to print media to give a perfect finish to your printed documents.

It protects the medium from staining and wear and tear during transport or use. It lengthens the life of your catalogues, flyers, technical documents, reports and so on.

It acts to stiffen paper, to avoid damaging or creasing flyers, for example.

It gives a high-quality look and feel to all your printed documents.

Why choose gloss lamination?

Gloss lamination makes colours bright and vibrant. It’s flashy and attractive – this is why it adapts so well to advertising documents. It also gives a smooth, glazed effect to the medium, and helps to add value to photos and visuals. It’s a very commonly used lamination.

Why choose matte lamination?

Matte lamination gives documents a more sober and refined look. More sensitive to scratches than gloss lamination, it’s very soft to the touch. It goes well with dark colours, and is good for printing company catalogues, invitation cards and books. If you’re looking to add elegance to your documents, matte lamination is the solution!

Don’t laminate a medium that you want to be able to write on, such as the back of a business card or a postcard, because the plastic film on the lamination prevents the ink from adhering.

Laminating is applicable to all types of thick paper only (generally from 250 gr / m²), except recycled paper and opal paper, which can only be laminated on one side.
