Finishing Options

Laminating

Laminating adds a thin, transparent plastic coating to printing products. Laminating can be used for both protective and aesthetic effects.

 

Matt Laminate Matt laminate is our most popular finish. It has a soft smooth finish which reduces glare. It works best with lighter backgrounds and colours.
Gloss Laminate Gloss laminate produces a high shine finish. It helps bring out vibrant colours and works well on darker backgrounds.
