Lamination

Benefits & types 

What is Lamination exactly?

The Lamination process offers an extra protection to the printed material. According to this post-printing procedure, a thin layer of plastic is affixed on one or both surfaces of the paper. As a result, the paper becomes water-resistant and more durable.

There are two types: hot and cold. Each type gives a different result, either matt or gloss. Matt one is preferable for surfaces easily read and is most commonly used on business cards and brochures.

Cold lamination

This process can be applied either on one or on both sides of a paper. It is thin and it follows the shape of the surface that it will be applied, so it can be folded, for example as a single fold or a two fold. It is suitable for stickers, business cards and flyers. It may also be applied in every printed product that needs to be folded, such as greeting cards, posters, maps and more.

Advantages

  • Low cost
  • Enables folding, especially on flyers and catalogues it can be applied without reducing the quality of the work or the quality of the printed product

Disadvantages

  • Low durability in everyday use

Hot lamination

Contrary to cold lamination, hot one uses a thicker layer of plastic that makes the final printing product inflexible. It can be applied on both sides of the paper and it is suitable for posters, flyers, membership cards, price-lists, photos, maps, engineering plans, manuals, architectural or shipping plans. Hot lamination is the best choice for a tear-resistant result.

Advantages

  • High tear-resistance in everyday use

Disadvantages

  • Higher cost comparing to cold process
  • The final printing product cannot be folded without altering its quality
