COLD LAMINATION
Most suitable for protection of prints that will be mounted. Pressure-sensitive laminate is applied to the front of the print only.
Ideal for inkjet prints and other images that may be heat sensitive. Available in Gloss, Satin, Matt and Santex (stippled).

HOT LAMINATION
Ideal for protection of prints that will not be mounted. Suitable for photographic prints, posters, newspaper and laser prints. Prints are encapsulated in laminate, offering protection from moisture, physical damage, dirt, harmful gases and UV light.
